Route planning ??? Good Sam ?

Anyone know what the underlying application is that the Good Sam trip planner uses ?
Ive been using it for several years but Good Sam has really hosed up my account so I've decided not to use them anymore. I'm OK with the trip planner, and I'm sure that GS didn't write it, so looking for the company that owns it.

Unless your married to the Good Sam routing app, which I've not used, you could try the RV Life Trip Wizard that is created by the sponsor of this web site. I used it to plan a month long trip from SW Idaho to Key West and back. There is a web based tool that is more handy than the smart phone based app.
They used to have a 30 day trial, so you've got nothing to loose by having a look. The only disappointment for the routes, is that they don't cleanly export to something you can import into a GARMIN GPS. Or to be more accurate, for me it wasn't a slam dunk transfer to GARMIN base camp to allow it to be imported into my RV GPS without making a lot of changes .
Perhaps there is a Good Sam routing wizard amongst the group.

Another vote for RV Trip Wizard. Pay the money - get something that works really well.

disclaimer - I never used the GS trip planner.

I mostly use Trip Wizard as others mentioned above. is also worth looking into. It don't have fuel reminders and as many features but is a good alternative for park reviews and alternative stops .
