When to purchase TW

We have just rented a RV for 30 days in mid Sept. We are traveling to upstate NY from Phoenix AZ and then back.
I think using trip wizard is probably a good idea. Should I wait until our trip gets closer or would it make sense to get it now and start pre-planning?

I would get it now and preplan, including reservations. It will cost to cancel but it's better than planning later and having no room at the inn.

Since it's only $59 for an entire year, get it now and start practicing and learning. Watch the YouTube videos...get good at it so when crunch time comes you are ready.

I would get it now. it takes a while to learn, and a little bit longer to learn how to use it to save yourself some money. Use it in conjunction with campground reviews and it will be worth every penny of the $59.00.

RVTW is a planning tool. That's what you should be doing now. You won't get reservations if you try a month before you go.

Purchase it in advance of a trip and set up trial trips to get used to how the program works. It is not the most intuitive program to use, so it takes some experimenting.
