Here is how I do it. After setting what my preferences are in the TW (ie how many miles or hours max/min) I create a trip with just the starting point and the ending point and let TW plot the route. For instance I might start in Gulf Shores, AL and end in Mesa, AZ. TW then plots an initial route. Then I add any intermediate stops to the trip like for visiting relatives or specific Places I want to visit and let TW recalculate the route to take this into account.
Now I just click on my starting point and TW will draw two radii showing minimum miles and maximum miles, I zoom in on the segment of the route area between the min/max lines and turn on the “show RV parks” option. Then it’s just a matter of looking at each potential stop and using the “read campground reviews” option I pick one of the parks out and add it to the trip.
Then I just repeat the process by clicking on the new stop, TW draws another pair of radii and the process repeats until I have the whole trip done. I also use the TW feature that shows RV park information to get the phone number or website for each my stops and I just go through the list in one sitting and call each one for a reservation using the calculated dates from TW. If one or more of my initial selections for an overnight doesn’t work out then I can use TW to quickly find an alternate and modify the trip plan instantly.
I’ve done many, many 1,000 mile plus trips with this procedure and I can usually do a complete trip including making confirmed reservations in just a couple of hours. Before TW, using Google maps and internet searches it would take at least 1-2 hours PER STOP to plan a trip. Granted, we have a 45 foot coach with a toad so just setting out and hoping to be able find a suitable place to overnight by random chance is not really practical.
