One thing that hasnt been mentioned about the book The Next Exit (don't know about the app) is that anything printed in Red at the exits means its RV friendly. I found that info very useful.

There are, however, other forum members (braver than I! ) who define this acronym differently...

Bob,

Looking at the web site (# 1 USA Interstate Exits - Hotels, Gas, Food - the Next EXIT) it seems that the App is a electronic front end to the data on the website.

The website looks very attractive over the printed book - mainly because they tout daily updates!

That can be handy...remember last month driving down I20E and seeing signs for a Love's, taking the exit and finding out that yep there is a Love's here but it will not be opening for a few months (Nice concrete pad and framing for the building though )

We use Gas Buddy and try to call ahead as we approach possible fuel stops. We asked them if we can get in/out with camper?

Next exit as a reference for truck stop locations, anything smaller is a non gaurentee I can get in/out or even have the height needed to clear.

Well....this has been quite entertaining!! I'll chime in as well....As I've progressed from a pop up to a 42' fiver I have become more sensitive to ingress/egress of fuel stops...especially since my TV is still a gasser. For my ole standby trips I already know my fuel stop options, for new trips I use every tool available, including maps and apps...I get more comfort when knowing what's ahead. I usually double check with google earth to get a good overhead view and street view and then line up my options. For those full timers..I envy you!! The DW made fun of me the other day as I had out the old fashion maps...she asked what I was doing...told her I was planning our first full time trip to the Grand Canyon..she pointed out that was a least 10yr out...so, I like to plan ahead..and dream a little
