Is there a spot in trip wizard where we can have a list of our favorite RV Parks? We can't always remember the ones we liked and would stay at again. Last trip, 34 parks. We have also passed some that we would stay at when we travel this way again.

No list feature that I have seen (good idea though) but you could create a new Trip called favorites and add them to that trip.

I start my trip name with 2018 and keep them for my personal historical information. A trip called favorites is a good idea. Because we full time I keep a spread sheet by year of where we stop each night, just in case we are questioned. Also good for reference. I have been doing this for at least 15 years.



We have alsow started a trip called daily travel. We are in the mountains and I put in point A and point B and look at the elevation change so I have some idea as to what to expect as we are in the mountains right now.


I have seen a lot of RVTW tweeks that would be nice and I hope someone at RVTW is keeping a list.

I think it is being looked at. There is already a way to save favorites in RV Park Reviews (just click the heart icon and it gets added). You should be able to login to RVPR with the same creds as RVTW.

It would be nice to have that feature because there are places we stay that are not RV parks and it would be handy to re-use those places in future trips. Some of the places don't have addresses and I had to define them by zooming into the satellite view on the map and adding a "custom stop". When creating another trip with that same stop, it would be really handy to pull that from a drop-down list.

Last fall I contacted support requesting this same feature, as well as making a few other suggestions. I received a response that my suggestions have been requested by others and were "in development" and "I don't have a completion date at this time, but we plan to implement these features as soon as we are able."

I've been using RVTW for over 6 months now and have made a number of recommendations to support, most fairly simple things. For all my suggestions they've agreed with the suggestions and said they will implemented some time in the future. However I've yet to see any useful (to me) enhancements, and I'm not just talking about my suggestions.

Unless I start seeing some improvements I just don't see renewing my subscription when it comes due. I believe RVTW has a lot of potential to be a great tool but for me, it falls short of what I am looking for, especially given the cost of a subscription.

Same for me. We start from a location that isn't a park. It would be handy to be able to at least have a "home" location or something similar that could be reused.

An address book would be terrific.

No piece of software will meet everyones specific needs unless you write it yourself. The cycle for updates and changes is probably at least 2 years out. What you consider a simple change may not be and have many unintended consequences that you are not aware of. There are many features of RVTW that I don't use but I don't tell them to remove them because I don't use that function. Someone does use them.



I have used several other programs and I don't recall any that had a "home" option. I would never use it since we full time and don't require that option.



If you find a piece of software that meets your needs come back and tell us.

Hmmm. apparently I touched a nerve. I was in the SW business so I am familiar with the issues of changes/maintenance.

Google maps has a "Home" as well as an office feature. Delorme has an address book that you put your home (or any other) address into. Sadly Garmin bought Delorme and promptly killed it.

I like and recommend RVTW. As with anything there are always new ideas and suggestions. For my trip planning I use RVTW and the last version of Delorme.

Sorry if an idea to make RVTW even more useful was offensive.

Sorry - wasn't clear since the quote wasn't there.

Thanks for clarifying
