RV Resources

Whether you’re full-time, part-time, or some-time,  it’s always nice finding helpful information in this fun adventure we call RVing.   I’ve included a few sources here that you might find helpful.  Any text in color is linked and will take you to the appropriate website.  Use the back arrow to return to this site.

escapeesRV Park Reviews and Campendium are my two favorite sites for finding camping options.  And the best RV organization to join is Escapees.  They offer mail services, a magazine, discounts on camping, social opportunities, and more. 

Here are some items we use to help us get around …..

Nothing beats a good old fashioned atlas.

We like using the Benchmark atlas’ for individual states that we plan on exploring in depth. These atlas’ are a wealth of information and full of details.

Colorado Benchmark Road & Recreation Atlas
Arizona Benchmark Road & Recreation Atlas

We do own a GPS and use it regularly BUT it’s not a good idea to totally trust it especially in mountain states.  We always double check our Benchmark Atlas to make sure the GPS doesn’t take us on a back country road. Rand McNally RVND 7730 LM RV GPS with Lifetime Maps and Wi-Fi

Since we do find ourselves traveling interstates and certain routes regularly, we love the Next EXIT 2017 and use this book regularly.  It’s very handy especially when we’re in a spot without cell phone coverage.

Our 2014 version is all marked up noting our favorite exits for gas or lunch on those interstates we frequent such as interstates 40 and 10.

Then there are books on travel that I find useful.

These Moon Handbooks are packed with wonderful information for ANY traveler, whether traveling by RV, car, or air.  I still enjoy having a printed book in my hand and thus own several of these, but they are also available on Kindle.

  1. Wow, that is quite a compilation of RV links! Thank you! I just found your blog and enjoyed reading your posts. Are you going to Quartzsite? This will be our first time and we look forward to meeting fellow RVers like you!

    • We’re passing on Quartzsite this year as we are currently sitting in Rockport Texas. It’s an ‘experience’ every RVer should try once. We’ll be back in AZ in March. Thanks for following along….perhaps our paths will cross 🙂
