Get a Garmin RV 760 LMT and configure it for your rig. Then buy a truckers Atlas and refer to that. And if you see a road sign that says "No Trucks" whatever you do, don't go there.

Yep. Louisville Metro KOA, On the way to Goshen 2014. Stock Truck GPS routed us down a *NARROW* road with almost no shoulders. A 9' bridge stood between us and the KOA

The KOA manager was going to the bank, stopped and said she would guide us to the "correct" route to the KOA...AFTER I backed our 33' 5er up and turned around

She was even kind enough to get out of her truck and tell the 6 vehicles behind us to BACK UP 60 or so feet

25 min later we were turned around (can you say 123 point turn around LOL) Got to camp, set up, had some burbon (wait...got to camp, had some burbon THEN set up! ) Logged on to Amazon and had a Garmin RV 760LMT drop shipped to the Goshen Fairgrounds. Never Again!!

Glenn,

Rand McNally. Here's a Link:

http://www.amazon.com/McNally-Deluxe...ers+atlas+2016

That's the deluxe, laminated, spiral bound one. You can get a less expensive paperback for @ $20

Glad I saw this. I've never been stuck but it sits there in the back of my mind and what to do if it happens. It never dawned on me that there would be an atlas I could use to reduce the risk. Thanks for posting.
