We use RVParkReviews.com as our first source of CG info, usually check for a Passport America park, COE or NP first. We have the Trailerlife CD one our PC (07') version and the 06' Woodalls hardcopy which I feel are needed in the event of no internet access. I have not bothered to update either Trailerlife or Woodalls, it is my opinion that they downplay and or contain bad info when it comes to public parks.

Ex. TL will tell you the sites in Maumee Bay SP in Oregon, OH are 15' wide, we almost did not go there because of that, but take at look at RVParkReviews.com:

RV Park Reviews :: Oregon, Ohio ( OH ) - RV Parks and Campground Reviews

The sites are huge and paved and it is one of the finest SP's that we have ever been in. Another example is both TL and Woodall's will tell you that Mississippi SP's have a 32' size limit, not so. Natchez SP ($13 senior for 50 amp, water, backin on a slab) and the Trace SP ($14 50 amp, water, sewer on paved backin) are two of the finest SP's in MS. If I went by TL or Woodall's we would have missed out on two great parks. Thank God for the internet.

Why waste your money when you can use the internet and get better information.

I think the Trailer Life 2010 program is great. They have made HUGE improvements in this program over the past few years. I have my order in for the Trailer Life 2011 which will be shipped next month January. The 2011 Trailer Life will be upgraded from CD to DVD more info and will run faster. I also have the new DeLorme Street Atlas USA 2011 and Microsoft Streets and Trips, but my favorite is Trailer Life.

Ditto on logthumper, I have the Delorme GPS hooked up to my laptop so I can see what Campgrounds are in the area when we feel like stopping. I can switch from the Delorme Maps to the Trailer Life CD. I am looking forward to the new DVD which I have ordered.

We do use the hardcopy Trailer Life 2010 and it meets our needs. I also have computer disc for some travel RV park programs but my spouse (copilot) prefers the book.

Hi burgiebill,

I use the hard copy and the P/C version. They each serve my needs very well.

Ditto back to you Chuck, Loading both Trailer Life and DeLorme, both running on GPS, gives you the best of both. Alt + Tab will toggle the programs back and forth.

2010 TLD on CD works great. It is really worth the upgrade over the earlier versions. You have to play with it to learn all of the features in the program, too many people wont learn the program and say it doesnt give them enough information. I will get the 2011 DVD when it is available. Also use S&T and the GPS built into the dash.

I refer to all the sources mentioned above when RVing. I usually update either the TL or the Woodalls big book ever couple of years. I also have the TL CD for my computer. And I do look in both RVparkreviews and Google RV parks. Since we belong to AAA they have camp books too. And Frommers has a book that does a very good job with many of the public RV parks.

I was planning on getting the 2011 DVD, but discovered that the netbook we take in the RV doesn't have a fast-enough CPU. TL reckons it needs 2.0 MHz and the ASUS is only 1.6 Meg.

I discovered, by an inquiry on a computer "geek" bulletin board, that the system the DVD is built from is available on-line for free. You just have to wi-fi hot access to use it.

It's at www.trailerlifedirectory.com

I use most of the sources previously noted. I also recently started using Google map by entering a close city and clicking on " search nearby" and entering "camp grounds or RV resorts. These lists usually have user ratings comments. Of course you have to have a laptop and way to connect to the internet.
