RoadTrippers.com for finding destinations.

RVParky.com Ďs Trip Planner from a computer for stringing together destinations and planning dates out.

And then Google Spreadsheet for tracking campgrounds, reservations, and costs.

I use RV Trip Wizard. It is okay, takes some getting used too, but better than anything else I could find. I have had CoachNet route a trip for me, and RV Trip Wizard was much better than what I got from them.

A nice feature is that it links with RVParkReviews, and does calculate costs for you. Is worth the $39 fee to give it a try.

As a Good Sam member, I use their Trip Planner. It's included with the membership fee, so there is no additional cost for using it.

I like the Trip Planner feature that allows me to choose whether it shows private or pubic campgrounds, or both, along my route. It also warns of low clearances and can even give me the location of Pilot/Flying J truck stops along the route. I love being able to fuel up at Flying J because most have a separate RV diesel lane and a dump and many have propane.

I use two apps faithfully to plan our next stop. RV TripWizard allows me to set desired driving radius. Then looking at the variety of cgs, I look at Allstays and review options and reviews. We travelked over 16,000 miles in 5 months this summer. I do not make reservation. We try to finish driving by 2:00, not more than 200 miles on driving days.

We donít make reservations unless we are staying at a very popular spot, like Yellowstone or Disney. Most of the time we just plan the road we want to take and look for a spot around 2 in the afternoon. Most of the time I normally drive at least 400 miles or more.

Spent my first few months using everything available for searching out campgrounds, then saw RVTripWizard and have been happy with it for my use. It has a couple holes as there are still places not listed, but you can add anything you want to your route. I like the filters/poi availability and the mapping distance guide. Also like the mileage tracking as it is only for the miles traveled between stops, so if you stop for a month/week all the
running around without, in my case, the trailer is not added.

Still use internet searches for locations in general. Like the details TW offers and it's fun to look back on the map....good memories (except for that dang tree branch!).

RVTripWizard

I gave up on RV Trip Wizard 18 months ago because I plan up to six months ahead and it would not let me include closed-in-winter roads in trips I was planning for the coming spring/summer/fall months. That and a very sparse campground data base caused me to drop it. I recently found that RV Trip Wizard will now let me include closed-in-winter roads in spring/summer/fall trips and so started using it again. There have been many other improvements by the new owners such as easily switching off the campgrounds until I have the route planned. I do not know yet if the campground database has improved, but I have discovered that entering "campgrounds near xxxx" in the Google search engine is the best campground finder available. I will combine the two unless or until I find RV Trip Wizard does as well.
