Is there a way to reverse the direction of a trip after its been mapped out?

I created a trip with around 30 campgrounds going from West to East thru Canada. After being informed we need to be someplace at the end of August my thought is to change the trip to East to West allowing us to be at the new destination on time, and also allowing us to change it up a bit on the fly and still be able to make it back to the west coast.



I know I could drag all the stops around, probably totally screwing it up in the process. I'm curious if there is a way to invert the trip? Control Key sequence or ?


Thanks, Bill

It would help to know what program you are using to map with.

Since the OP posted this note in the RV Trip Wizard forum, I'm guessing that's the program he's inquiring about. I would also like to know about this, since I use RVTW quite a bit, and would like to be able to reverse trip itineraries. I know you can copy trips, and you can move stops by dropping and dragging from the list on the left side of the screen, but if you have many stops planned out, dragging and dropping is quite cumbersome.

(I hope this works like I think it does.) 1st I'd make a copy of your trip to protect your original effort. Then, on your copy, I believe you can employ the multi-stop return option, which should add your stops in reverse back to your original starting location. Once you've done that step, you can delete all the original stops up to but NOT including the last stop of your original trip. Use the Stop Delete function (Tool Drop-down) to all the Stops you want deleted and perform that action in one step.

I may have to give RVTW a try. I use RV Parky, but the “return to here” button only maps it back to start in one shot without duplicating the stops in reverse. A bit of a pain, that.

I did this very thing a couple months back. Worked 90%. I still needed to do some minor adjustment to prevent my first day from being 30 miles away from my starting point. LOL Yes this works.

WOW! That worked. The only thing that didn't work as expected was the Delete Stop function. Click and Shift Click did not work to select the range like it works for most things on the web. Had to select each of the west to east stops individually. But that was much easier than redoing each stop.



Very Cool Feature! Glad I asked. -Bill

RV Tripwizard, I'm pretty sure I only posted this on this forum. -Bill

Round Trip Options button

Open RV Trip Wizard, go to create a new trip or open an existing trip.

Add at least one stop. The Round Trip Options button does not appear unless at least one stop is added.

I think what you want might be the “Round trip options” button located at the bottom of a trip you created. Works for me.
