I have one but don't use it. I use Streets & Trips and Street Atlas on my laptop plus a TomTom GPS. The GPS software has most of the points of interest.

I was going to get one, and then found out it only covers major highways and freeways. We like to travel the smaller back country roads and alternate routes, so decided against it.

We use it quite a bit. Also use S&T, paper map and GPS. The DW keeps it handy and it is a quick reference. It shows which side of the Interstate the fuel stops are which is nice. It also show what food service is available. I think it is worth the money but would like to cover more than interstates. But, it would probably be huge if it did.

Definitely worth having if you travel on interstates at all. Prevents you from guessing about fuel stations, restaurants, etc.

I like the book. I just picked up the new edition at my local RV service center for $14.95. It is very handy when laying out a route and sure helps with the road info.

I use it. I also like to run the Primary roads that will cross over one (or more) interstates. I can look at the Interstate Exits at, above and below where I cross over the Interstates to find restaurants (I'm partial to Cracker Barrels) and fuel stations... on an Interstate that runs North/South (Like I-75) it will tell you what is on the East side and the West side of the interchange... very handy... I also note down in the margins the Exits that I have found to be difficult to manouver thru. I also use it to help sort out what exit I may need to take when the maps are a bit unclear (more than one exit stacked on top of each other). It is a little tricky to navigate thru as it's set up by Interstate not state. I tend to use post-it notes to flag what pages I need to flip to when shifting from one interstate to another. I don't use GPS or any mapping software. Just use a Michelin Road Atlas and the Next Exit. Works for me. You may have different results.

We love the Exit book. Most handy feature is the RV friendly places called out in RED. I have a 43' rig and generally tow. It helps to know which places have large enough lots to get in and out of. Not even all Wal-marts are RV Friendly.

By the way, you quickly learn which exits to avoid using the book. If there is every gas station and restaurant known to man at the exit then you will spend 15 minutes in traffic getting on and off.

Agreed. We wouldn't travel without it.

Very helpful planning rest stops, fueling, etc. We write in the book where we stop - fuel price, ease of access, cleanliness - and use it as a record for subsequent trips. We buy the new version every 2 years; they seem to improve it a bit with each edition. Money well spent.

We use it frequently. Just covers the Interstates, but very handy for that.
