Best fueling stops?

Traveling to Yellowstone in July and trying to find the easiest stops for fuel with a Dodge Ram pickup and a 35 foot travel trailer.
Didn't know if any of the truck stops sold gas in the truck fuel island or which gas islands are travel trailer friendly

When you get to Iowa a must stop is the I-80 truck stop at Walcott Iowa
They advertise at the largest truck there is. Neat place just to visit and their fuel lanes are easy in and easy out. RV parking right in front.

A lot of the Flying J truck stops have RV islands but not so much at Pilot. However, I have always found it easier to pull in where the cars do and go for an outside pump. You also get a few cents off if you have the Pilot/FJ rewards card.

Also, most of the Racetrac/Raceway stations are easy to get in and out of but as Youroo said, you really need to look before you get in a spot you may have to back out of.

I do have a pilot rewards card being that I am a truck driver I just haven't driven over the road in about 30 years was hoping some national chain would have made fuel islands that are easily assessable with vehicles towing travel trailers that only need gas not fuel

Flying j and pilot have RV lanes with gas, diesel, def, water and air. Avoiding car and truck lanes.
