RV Apps – 6 Essential RV Apps for Travel

by | Dec 12, 2017

We love RV travel. Part of our formula to make RV travel easier is trip planning along with a number of valuable travel tools we use to reach our destination. We have 6 essential RV apps for travel we use on a regular basis to find campgrounds, map our travel, locate rest areas along the way and to purchase fuel. There are a number of other RV apps used from time to time, but these 6 essential RV apps for travel are always part of our RV adventure both in planning as well as those days we’re on the road.

In this video we show how we use our favorite apps – RV Parky, TripAdvisor, Google Maps, Rest Stops, Allstay Big Truck Stops and last but not least, Gas Buddy. We take you through our process using these apps, explaining how each are beneficial for RV travel. While not an RV app, we also show the importance of using a Rand McNally Deluxe Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas to ensure your travel route is suitable for your big rig RV. We’ve provided links below for each app for both Android and iOS use along with the link for the invaluable Rand McNally Deluxe Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas. Joan and I hope you find each useful in your RV travels.

As always, I love RV life. Jerry
