You might try purchasing a GPS that lets you enter the parameters of your motorhome, i.e. length, width, height, weight, etc. This "should" allow you to travel on roads that will accommodate your RV. There are some good ones out that now allow this type of input. Some even have lifetime map updates. I personally like my Garmin even though my present coach is equipped with a Rand MacNally. They're not failsafe, but do make for good trip planning. If you are that concerned with the route depicted on the GPS, cross check it with Google maps or some other source. Safe travels

A good GPS is what you need, one that you can put in the length & height of your coach. I have a Garman 760, it does a good job but you still have to 2nd guess it to make sure you aren't going out of your way.

While traveling to Columbia Mo I searched for a specific location, the GPS found it and hit GO not thinking anything of it. I continued to drive following the GPS directions. After a while my wife started to question where we were going so I pulled over and looked at the address, we were headed in the opposite direction to a different town. Lesson learned, after doing a search and selecting the destination I always check to make sure it's where I want to go.

I have the Garmin RV760 LTM and it does a great job 7" screen for old eyes. BUT you must always have a good idea of where you wish to go. Address' s can be wrong(as it the lat long is incorrectly input by a human) also some of the parameters we have selected can change routing(such as right turns only). Another biggie is read the manual from cover to cover, I know tough for usmen who already know. LOL

You can also purchase a "trucker's Atlas" at any truck stop.

Barnes and Noble has the Rand McNally Motor Carrier's road atlas on sale for $14.73. It's over $50 on the Rand McNally website.
While on the Barnes and Noble website, and if you plan any mountain driving, might as well buy the East or West , or both versions of the Mountain Directory. They are a great aid.
