Yes, Fellow-RVers, There’s An App for That!
Looking for some RV apps? We’ve done the grunt work for you. Here’s our list of The Best FREE RV Apps to help you along the way.
1. RV Parky
Looking for a place to park that RV overnight?
This is a great app for those true road warriors who like to wing it. Built by a full-time RVer to help fellow-RVers on the road, RV Parky has it all. It combines a directory of RV Parks and campgrounds throughout the United States and Canada, a map, GPS, and reviews.
2. Gas Buddy
Looking for the lowest gas prices to fill up your rig?
Let’s face it, keeping your RV gas tank full can get pricey. With Gas Buddy you can easily find the lowest price for gas in any area. You can also read and post gas station reviews and enter to win gas card giveaways. More than ten million people use this simple on-the-go app to plan their fuel stops. Take Gas Buddy for a test drive and start spending less for gas and more time on the road.
3. Around Me
Passing through a new town and need to find an ATM, grocery store or barber?
Around Me, winner of Best App Ever’s “Best Use of Locations Services Award”, is an easy to use app that puts you in touch with the world around you. Search by category or name and you’ll find anything you might need (restaurants, banks, gas stations, movies and more) with a simple swipe.
Where’s the nearest RV dumping station?
Finding a convenient place to dump your RV holding tank on the fly can be difficult. That’s what Sanidumps is for. This clever app uses your location to help find the nearest dumping facilities. You can get prices, hours of operation and contact information. It also lets you save up to 20 stations, search by city and zip code and get directions. This is a must-have-app for boondockers.
5. RV Checklist
Forget to the lockdown that awning before getting on the road?
That won’t happen with the RV Checklist app. OK, so this RV app is not entirely free. It’s free from Google Play, but iTunes will charge you 99 cents to download it. Don’t worry, it’s well worth the buck.
RV Checklist gives you a digital checklist in the palm of your hand making it easy to run through your pre-drive safety check. The app is intuitive and easy to use. You can also customize your checklist.
Looking for new friends on the road?
We would be remiss if we didn’t include RVillage on our list. Want to meet other RVers and travelers like you? This RV social networking app was set up by full-timers to help campers connect. It’s a great way to make new friends while you’re on the road. After all, isn’t that what RVing is all about?
So there you have it — a handful of FREE apps to enhance your RV travel experience.
