Pilot Travel Center Priceville AL

Hi,

Has anyone used this Pilot driving a class A motorhome? Is it a good fuel stop for a class A w/towd, as far as having sufficient manuevering room to get in/out? Does it have separate RV fueling pumps?

Thanks,
Jim

Try google maps and street view to see looks like they have along line of trucks at their truck lane, so you should fit !

Pilot Travel Center
3240 Point Mallard Parkway Southeast
Priceville, AL 35603
(256) 353-5252

While I WILL use them occasionally,
I can promise you one thing, they will be 20 to 30 cents higher per gallon than the other stations around them

There are a bunch of apps available that give max info on fueling locations and facilities...Alstays Truck and Travel is about the best one...not sure if you have a smartphone or Ipad though...

I have used their cat scales and you can actually do a four corner weigh by way you pull on the scales

Shows truck lanes and regular auto lanes which look to have room to maneuver. (No separate RV lane)
Web shows diesel at 4.08, Loves and Petro in that area are 4.07 and 4.11

Don't forget gasbuddy.com for mapping out routes based on fuel choices.

I'm headed to Bristol in a few weeks to watch them fly jet planes in a gymnasium. I've used GasBuddy.com to check the route, and the Pilot/Flying J's are all within a few cents of the surrounding stations. Figure in my discount for being a Good Sam member, and they become the cheapest gas on the route. Most important to me is an RV lane. I'll pay a few cents more to get out of having to compete with the cars that see me sitting there waiting and then go around me to take the pump I'm waiting for because they're faster and more maneuverable.

My apologies to the OP. Didn't mean to hijack your thread. The Pilot/Flying J website should answer your questions about RV lanes at the Priceville facility.

I have used this Pilot several times with and without toad . Entrance between truck and car entrances. They have two lanes exiting west past store from. Hope this helps.

Oops, I should have noted my Priceville Pilot fueling was for class A gas. First entrance for diesel and should be easy in and out. Thanks.

For future reference if you have an iPhone the FlyingJ/Pilot app is pretty good. I use the app to see where the next station is located and if the Flying J has RV lanes. Of course first hand account is still the best.

Thanks everybody, the Google Street View is great the see what the place looks like and the Pilot/FJ website has info on whether or not there are dedicated RV lanes at each location.
Appreciate all the input.

Jim
