Whats your favorite trip planning app?
We been using RV Parky free version, a little bulky, but pretty sweet at the same time.

thought so. those which i mentioned are $0.00.

i used to be a meticulous planner before we started the RV thing...where we stop for gas, sleep and eat. drive my wife crazy and made for a very stressful trip especially if something went wrong or we found a reason to divert. it took all the spontaneity out of a vacation. went cold turkey one year. basically picked a direction and took off. no reservations, no plan. i was a nervous wreck but we survived...literally. that carried over in 1986 when we bought our first MH. no reservations except if we HAD to be somewhere on date X (like the Dayton HamVention).

i get it. reservations are more of a necessity these days especially if you want a specific park or class of park. but you don't need to spend a nickle to do that. my $0.02.

To each, his/her own. I've found RVTripWizard to be a useful trip planning tool and worth the subscription fee.

Take care,
Stu

AllStays and Google Maps. Although we may make reservations at our destination (especially if its a national park), day to day stops are decided as we're driving - pick a campground and call ahead or drive longer and stay at Walmart.

I think the Allstays app is about $10 one time cost.

For a multi destination trip, I love using RVTrip wizard. You don’t have to toggle between programs to plan an RV-safe route, while also reading campground reviews, and budgeting your time and spend.

Trip planners

Very new to this RVing, but have found RV Parky much easier to use and quicker than any other. Have tried RV trip planner and, while I like the circles, it seems much slower to use.

I love the RV Trip Wizard for planning, we tend to do multi-stop trips and it is a great help for finding Cracker Barrells for our in between campground stops and Flying Js for fill ups.

I need to look see how to incorporate that into my GPS directions. I love Madam Google, but she doesn't seem to care that I am not driving a car.

Thank you rk911 - I really like your reply!
I had become so obsessed with RV Trip Wizard - such a great travel planning tool; that I was using it to detail every mile of our forthcoming trip. It was beginning to look like a "moonshot." You're reply has helped remind / reground me as to what our travel-trailering recipe should be:
1. add detail planning when necessary and
2. bake with optimal opportunities for serendipity-fueled joy!
