A road atlas and a handful of quarters to use at a pay phone used to be your standard traveling companions, but thank goodness for technology! These are some of the best RV apps to put on your phone or other mobile device to make traveling easier and more convenient, and have more accessible help available in the event of a roadside emergency. The best part is, most of these apps are free! Find them in your app store and see how they help out on your next camping trip!
Want real time updates about construction, road delays, or accidents? Waze is a fantastic traveling app (along with Google Maps). You can navigate easily through traffic and find the best route for getting where you need to go.
The GasBuddy app helps you find the cheapest gas price around. Search and compare prices within your immediate proximity and avoid overpaying at the pump! This is one of the best RV apps you’ll find for saving money at gas stations.
One of the best RV apps for helping provide locations and directions to free parking lots is the Overnight Parking Finder app. Walmart store parking lots give you both a place to stay and an opportunity to do a quick restocking shopping trip – plus, the app also locates Redbox locations. Movie night!
If you’d prefer a commercial RV park, try the RV Parks and Campgrounds app. Parks and campgrounds are sorted in the database based on ranking, so you can make sure of finding a nice campground based on other campers’ reviews.
Weather, Safety, and Convenience
With the WeatherBug app, you can check out current conditions, access the Doppler radar, get updates on severe weather alerts, forecasts, and more. It’s a must-have while you’re traveling, since weather can change in an instant. This app is reliable, accurate, and comprehensive, and you won’t want to go without it.
And for the dirty tasks that no one likes to talk about but
everyone has to do, one of the best RV apps anyone needs to keep around is the Sani
Dump app, which includes a map with hours of operation and price
information about the closest RV dump site. Have reliable and speedy access to
a dump site makes this task get completed in a safe and responsible way. Don’t
put it off!
If you’re crossing state lines, get the State Lines app. State laws differ, and you can look up what directly affects you – from holding your phone while driving to sleeping at a rest stop to firewood regulations.
