A new age of camping is upon us, one where smartphones, in-dash GSP, and apps can help to change your experience for the better.  Whether you’re heading out for your maiden voyage in your 2020 Jayco Redhawk class C motorhome from Manteca Trailer Sales, or loading up a 2015 Keystone Passport travel trailer for another adventure, these apps will help.  Find out why more and more RVers are using their smartphones to improve their vacations with there RV tips.


Allstays Camp & RV

One of the most popular RVing apps is Allstays Camp & RV.  This version of the AllStays app focuses on providing up-to-date information on the best campgrounds and RV parks.  You’ll always find the lowest rates and the best amenities.  This app even offers information about the best places for boon-docking as you head towards your destination.


Staying up-to-date on traffic conditions is a must when you’re traveling with a big rig.  That’s why many RVers use the Waze navigation app.  Waze operates like Google Maps but is updated in real-time by other users, so you’ll always have the latest information about traffic conditions.  Additionally, Waze offers alternative routes and detours, and it can be paired with other apps, like Spotify, to continue running in the background without disturbing your music.


Gas Buddy

When you’re on vacation, every penny saved on travel expenses means more money to spend on the things you love.  Gas Buddy allows you to find the lowest prices on gas every time you stop.  A few cents every gallon can really add up, especially over the course of a cross-country trip!


If you’re looking to add some new sightseeing locations to your road trip, then download the Roadtrippers app. This app specializes in building vacation itineraries that will make the road trip just as fun as the campground. You’ll be able to find off-the-beaten-path stops that will add fun and flavor to your adventure.

Last but not least, you’ve got to have some tunes for the road!  Many RVers and veterans of the road recommend the Spotify music app because of its incredible music library and the ability to build your own playlists and stations. Spotify will even generate a custom playlist for you every week based on your listening habits so that you can find more songs from artists you love.
