I find the Allstays camp and RV tells me all the information you are looking for. The break the Walmarts into those you can ask to stay and those that don't permit it. They also show the height of low clearance overpasses. There are a ton of other things you can search for or filter them out. I have the atlas you are talking about, but honestly don't use it. Just give me my iPad with Allstays and Good Sam apps and I'm a happy camper.

RM publishes four or five different road atlas books. Go to the RM website and study differences before buying. We like the RM large scale book best. Spiral/spring bound for long life and much more detail. Larger states have more than two pages.

We have been looking for a replacement Rand McNally at Wal-Mart because ours is coming apart. We have visited numerous locations to no avail. Finally we asked and were told that Wal-Mart no longer offers this product because everyone uses a GPS. We will look for a replacement atlas at a truck stop. I do have the Rand McNally map app and it updates each year for free. Sometimes you just need to look at a big map and not at an electronic screen.

My wife would agree with you but then she has a hard time reading it. I like to expand the electronic map pretty much much as I can.

I agree totally with this. We have a GPS and I use Delorme's mapping program to make our map and then transfer it to the GPS for driving. We use secondary roads so I put in a lot of vias for the way I, not the GPS wants to go. I don't care about the shortest or fastest. I want the scenic way. I will never give up my paper maps. You can easily see the 'whole picture' of the area you want to travel without loosing detail in that big picture.

I've saved our 'master' road atlas from our 16 years of full-timing and there are many western states that have just about every road highlighted as ways we have traveled. Hardly any sections of interstates are highlighted.

We just picked up the Rand McNally Road Atlas at a Pilot Truck Stop. Does not show the Wal-Mart locations but otherwise it is the same and was less than $7.

Found this one on Amazon - but isn't it a bit pricey at $2,000

That's the one to buy, it has routes approved for large vehicles highlighted in orange + that front section with detailed information for each state.

I've found it may be purchased at a truck stop cheaper than the website.
