BEST RV mapping program

I'm heading from Kansas City to Zion NP, the Grand Canyon and on to Phoenix and I am wondering if anyone can suggest an RV mapping program that shows not only campgrounds but fuel stop locations along the route. Any suggestions welcome.

On my phone I use ParkAdvisor. There is also an online mapping program called RV Trip Wizard (subscription required) that does well.

The book Next Exit can be useful when traveling on the interstate highways.

Allstays is great if you have an Apple mobile device, or you can use the free web site version at Allstays.com

AllStays Camp and RV... love it. I think the Por version is around $10 but it's on my smartphones home screen.

I will make a suggestion, but it has limitations and only good if you are a member. Try Good Sam Trip Planner. https://www.goodsam.com/trip-planner/

Limitations - shows Good Sam Campgrounds & Pilot-Flying J gas station/rest stops.
Advantages are RV WARNINGS (low bridges or tunnel restrictions) along with Toll or Highway avoidance.

Be advised, due to tight curves and tunnels you can't take your 5th wheel through Zion. Take hwy 9 to go around.

NO such thing as "BEST". ALL routing / GPS solutions have "holes" in their coverage. The Rand McNally 7710RVND I paid $400 for several years ago was a BIG disappointment (bad hardware, bad software and TERRIBLE Mac OS integration). The infotainment system in my Super-C had Rand McNally 720 software installed (an improvement but still too many issues). I paid for a 5" Garmin dezl and Copilot Truck App and both had gaps re RV information. Copilot RV App wasn't suitable for large, heavy RVs (and, the Copilot Truck App is being "retired"; sorry all you suckers who paid $150 for the App!). Now, Copilot wants monthly or annual subscription fees. Whichever solution you choose, do your homework and find out what the shortcomings are (Rand McNally frequently tried to route me onto NY Parkways which are famous for their LOW clearances. RM also would tell me that "propane was not allowed on some of my route" which was ALL Interstate Highways!). Garmin dezl is a truck device with NO way to enter propane. When I see issues like that in an area that I AM familiar with, I MUST question how reliable that solution can be when traveling in areas I'm NOT familiar with.

Note...shows all public and private and Good Sam parks IF you check the right boxes. You can also set mileage limits off your chosen route for campgrounds, gas, food etc. ...ie 10 miles, 20 miles and only those within the blue boundaries you set will show up. One of the best perks of being a good sam member IMO. See pix:

OK! Must look into my Good Sam Trip Planner options.
Thank you Camaraderie.
Will reset asap. Planning a trip from Boston, Ma to Savannah, Ga. in April.

Thank-you!

Was there last year for only two nights.
Staying two weeks this time. My wife is a history buff.

Best RV mapping program

We use RV Parky and we like iExit (free version). We don't see the gas prices with the free version. It tells you what are at the upcoming exits on the I-System only.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...itapp&hl=en_US
We use "Gas Buddy" also!

Allstays is a real good app for finding campgrounds but Trip Wizard is great for mapping out trips and it's easy. If I can use it anybody can.
