10 Apps for Every RV Trip
While many people retreat to the great outdoors to escape technology, your smartphone definitely has some very practical uses while on the road. Below are some great apps that can enhance your camping experience.
#1. Harvest Host
Harvest Host is a network of more than 3443 extraordinary locations across North America you can stay with your RV. Subscribers can choose from host locations that include wineries, breweries, distilleries, farms, and more for FREE! Hosts typically ask for campers to support their businesses by buying their products. This is a great way to avoid campgrounds and stay at unique locations.
The GasBuddy app not only shows where the nearest gas station is but also the lowest-priced gas in the area. The app is updated by real users and you can filter search results by location, brand, and fuel type. This app is particularly useful as savings can add up on long trips.
Another great app for finding a place to camp is Campendium. This app has tens of thousands of places to camp, and each location is vetted by a team of full-time travelers and reviewed by over 600,000 members. It features National Parks, State Parks, County & City Park Campgrounds, RV Parks, Free Camping, and more with photos & reviews.
A road trip is not complete without good tunes to help pass the time. With Spotify, you can stream music from your favorite artists, listen to podcasts, discover new music, or choose pre-made playlists.
#5. RV Climate
If you own a newer Winnebago motorhome, it is most likely equipped with an air conditioner that features Bluetooth control, such as the Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ. With the RV Climate app, you can easily adjust the temperature and fan speed from your smartphone.
#6. Roadside America
Do you love finding weird roadside attractions along your trip? The Roadside America app allows you to add Start and End city to reveal a list of Strange museums, statues, Bizarre architecture, obscure history, and more. The app includes maps, directions, photos, stories, and tips for each destination.
Looking to share your adventures with friends & family? Instagram is a great way to share photos, videos, and document your experiences along the way. Be sure to follow and tag us in your photos @Colonialrv for a chance to be featured on our page.
Keeping track of the weather is important on any adventure, especially when trying to plan activities. The Accuweather app is Internationally recognized by the World Meteorological Organization and does a great job keeping you up-to-date on the latest weather conditions when traveling.
