Advice ? Allow more time than you think. Be sensible with the mileage / hours.

as above, some long days there but if that's your thing go for it,
I would try to spend some time in Sarajevo its an amazing place,
the route you have from Belgrade into Romania looks great but take a look at following the Danube down to Drobeta-Turnu Severin,

None of your day totals look that difficult but you look to be spending most of your holiday mixing it with the cars in the fast lane. By the time you allow a couple of hours to get going in the morning and a similar time to unpack, settle in etc in the evening there's not going to be much time left to actually do anything.

My advice would be to pick somewhere you like on the route and stop there for a few days - explore the area, check out the restaurants, beaches, whatever you like. Then either cut a few corners on the way back or put in a few longer days on the autobahn.
