Natchez Trace Pkwy

Is there a way to follow parkways like the Natchez Trace and the Blue Ridge in RV Wizard?

Yes, you can just drag the route to the road. Right now, you will need to turn off RV Routing to do this, the roads are truck restricted and the routing engine will not allow you to drag.



We are implementing a solution to this over the next month. Plans are to do Blue Ridge in the next update(Wednesday). Natchez will be in a few weeks.

Slightly off thread, but one feature I'd love to see in routing software is the ability to "tell" the system you wish to stay on a particular route. I know you can use waypoints to plan a route, but I'd like to be able to get on, for example US 2 & tell the GPS that I want to stay on US 2 until I tell it otherwise.

You really should start a separate thread with a proper subject on this, otherwise people with interest in your suggestion will never know it's been proposed unless they stumble upon it in this one. Spend a few moments...

Have you been on the trace ?


IMHO, it is slow and boring after a couple of hours... so get an rv spot where you can take the toad for a little run up and back...

Natchez Trace

The Natchez Trace Parkway has always been enjoyable for me. The NPS Campgrounds are well designed and maintained, not to mention free.

I ride a bicycle and the low traffic and no commercial vehicles make it a safe and enjoyable place to ride. Also, off the Trace, there are a lot of quaint, small villages to explore.

We have done the trace from nashville well into Mississippivery enjoyable. Low traffic. Would do it in a heart beat again.. We camper at a COE C in MS.

BRPW. We done several sections over the years. Either the longest trip being from Ashville in NC to the end in VA at I_64 . Each time we took out Trailmanor. I dont think I would take our 35' A MH. To narrow of lanes, to many sharp turns, to many steep grades, to many lower then I would like tunnels. I would be completely exhausted after 50 miles.

We have traveled most of the Trace and the BRP/Skyline Drive in a 34' motorhome and didn't find either one difficult. The Trace has a lot of pull offs that we could not park in, but we were able to stay in two of the campgrounds. The BRP has lots of overlooks that are motorhome accessable as long as you don't go at busy times.
Quite honestly, many of the roads near the BRP, are much harder to drive than the BRP itself. I had given up trying to get RVTW to follow either parkway, but in reality you can't get lost following them and there are free maps that point out all the POI's along them. You will want to pick one up when you go.

FYI-You are now able to drag to Natchez, Blue Ridge, Icefields, Yellowstone and Badlands. We have developed a technique to make this possible.
