Cruising in your RV may make want you want to disconnect from the stresses of phone calls, voicemails, emails and the internet, but don’t turn of your smartphone just yet. A number of inexpensive (and often 100-percent free) apps can help you find the perfect campsite, get there without having to make any U-turns and help you enjoy your time there more than ever.
When you’re living life on the road, fuel prices become one of your top priorities. The GasBuddy app helps you find the cheapest fuel prices (gas or diesel) just about anywhere in the United States. When you’re filling up a 50-gallon fuel tank, a 30-cent savings per gallon can make a big difference in your travel budget.
If you have a smartphone, you probably already have some sort of GPS or mapping app downloaded, but that doesn’t mean you should pass on the GPS CoPilot app. Let’s face it — cellphone service isn’t always perfect no matter where you are in the country, and if you’re crossing borders in your RV, using data can get outrageously expensive. This is where the GPS CoPilot app comes in incredibly handy. The free version of this app offers you offline maps for the United States, but if you’re willing to pay for some add-ons you can gain access to offline maps in a wide variety of countries with turn-by-turn navigation and live traffic updates.
Camp and RV — Campgrounds Plus
Many full-time RV travelers swear that spending $9.99 for the Campgrounds Plus app is the best money they’ve spent on the road. Not only does it help you locate everything from top-end RV resorts to parking lots for one night stays, the app’s filters help you tailor where you stay and what you do to your specific travel interests.
