The growth and change of the RV industry and advances in remote connectivity has helped drive the booming RV industry we see today. With those advances, RVing has increased in complexity. Now anyone can rent or buy an RV and hit the road. Travel for simple enjoyment or as a full-time or part-time RV life. Today’s RVers, especially new ones, often don’t know how to plan an RV trip.
Social media and RV forums like iRV2 are flooded with questions.
- Where do you find campgrounds?
- How do you avoid low overpasses?
- What’s the best way to find an RV safe route?
Often, these can only be answered by asking more questions.
- What kind of campgrounds do you like?
- How about the size and weight of your RV?
- And what is your destination?
RV LIFE helps all RVers. It makes camping simple again with the RV LIFE Pro suite of software tools.
How does RV LIFE Pro help?
RV LIFE Pro provides the necessary resources all RVers need. It makes it easy to find campgrounds, or plan an RV safe route. Then, navigate that route with an RV-safe GPS. RV LIFE Pro also helps you locate important resources. Now it’s easier to fuel locations, rest areas, and big box stores to stock up on groceries and supplies.
Everything about RVing is just easier. RV LIFE Pro is a web-based tool and suite of apps for all major platforms. Your data is stored in the cloud, so your all important information is accessible on any device. RV LIFE Pro tools consist of RV LIFE Trip Wizard, the RV LIFE GPS & Campgrounds app, and RV LIFE Maintenance.
Finding a campground
Today’s RVers face several challenges that those original Tin Can Tourists from yesteryear didn’t. For starters, an RVer needs to find a campground. But campground requirements vary from RVer to RVer. However, all RVers need a safe spot where they can park their RV. They also want access to water, electricity, and a dump station. Those are just the bare essentials. The modern camper also wants WiFi, a pet area, cable TV, and entertainment options. Many people work and homeschool on the road, too. Connectivity and workspaces are considered essential services by many campers.
For nearly two decades, RVers have relied on RV LIFE Campgrounds for that information. RV LIFE has taken the vast amount of data. By blending RV LIFE Campgrounds and integrating them into RV LIFE Pro, users have a cohesive set of tools for easy trip planning and travel.
RV LIFE Trip Wizard
RV LIFE Trip Wizard is the web-based trip planning portion of RV LIFE Pro. The app allows you to plan your RV trip in detail. RV LIFE Trip Wizard helps you plan an RV safe route. You give it your RV dimensions, and the app shows where to avoid low clearances and bridges with weight limitations.
Want to know about your destination? RV LIFE Trip Wizard also shows you all of the campgrounds and reviews that you would find in RV LIFE Campgrounds. Using its unique Driving Radius, RV LIFE Trip Wizard can show you which campgrounds will be on your route at the end of the driving time or distance you specify.
Here’s an easy way to take guesswork out of travel day. RV LIFE Trip Wizard shows exactly where to find fuel, based on the fuel capacity and miles per gallon you input. There is no more guessing or wondering when and where you will need to fuel up. You’ll know before you even get on the road. RV LIFE Trip Wizard also helps you locate and plan your rest area stops. Got other planned stops? It finds those too.
Safe RV driving
In addition to providing an RV safe route for your trip, RV LIFE Trip Wizard also offers satellite view, street view, and elevation and gradient charts. Review every mile of your trip before departing.
You can also use the satellite and street views to check out campgrounds, rest stops, and fuel stops ahead of time so there are no surprises when you get there. Low clearances are marked on the map for reference, and RV LIFE Trip Wizard automatically routes you around them.
Plan a trip and RV LIFE Trip Wizard’s new Advanced Driving Radius feature helps you plan ahead. Now, you won’t put in too many miles or hours behind the wheel. No more underestimating your arrival time and getting to the campground late, in the dark, and exhausted.
RV LIFE Trip Wizard runs in popular web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. It runs on nearly any device. Access your cloud-based data anywhere.
Cloud storage also allows others to view your trip, if you choose. This is great information for relatives or neighbors that might need to get a hold of you in an emergency. Save trip data for future reference. You decide what trip data you save or share.
The RV LIFE GPS & Campground App
Forget carrying another RV travel gadget. The RV LIFE GPS & Campgrounds App is versatile. This is an RV safe GPS, a campground locator, and an information resource. You’ll find great articles about RVing and automatically discover nearby campgrounds, rest areas, and fuel stations.
It’s everything weekend warriors want. Choose a campground on the map or plug in boondocking GPS coordinates. The RV safe GPS gets you there.
RV LIFE Trip Wizard integration
Discover the real power of the RV LIFE GPS & Campgrounds app in the RV LIFE Trip Wizard menu. The detailed trips planned in RV LIFE Trip Wizard come to life with full GPS turn-by-turn directions. You never have to type in a single address.
Get advance notice for every stop on your journey. No more wondering about the next rest area or fuel stop. If your trip does go awry for some reason, the app helps you find a nearby campground, rest area, or fuel stop.
Multiple tools, one login
Best of all, the RV LIFE GPS & Campgrounds app is included as part of the RV LIFE Pro tools. Simply login with the same credentials you use for RV LIFE Trip Wizard for seamless integration. Those same credentials will also give you access to RV LIFE Campgrounds.
This means you can leave a review for every campground you visit by accessing directly from your phone. No more trying to transfer pictures back and forth. Now you can leave a campground review with great pictures from right inside the RV LIFE app. It’s another way that RV LIFE is making camping simple.
RV LIFE Maintenance
In between camping trips, there is usually some RV maintenance involved. While the complex nature of modern RVs has taken some of the simplicity out of camping, keeping track of that RV maintenance is still important.
You don’t want to have problems when you are taking that once in a lifetime trip to Yellowstone or Yosemite. RV LIFE Maintenance is another web-based tool that is part of RV LIFE Pro. RV LIFE Maintenance lets you enter and track all of the maintenance for your RV. You can also store service records and create mileage and fuel logs.
RV LIFE Maintenance is the newest addition to the RV LIFE Pro tools and also utilizes the same login credentials. RV LIFE Maintenance will help you track maintenance you do yourself, and those services you have done by others. Get email reminders for upcoming work.
