In the world of RV travel, there are countless apps designed to make your life a little easier, from trip-planning apps to journaling apps. In fact, there are so many apps that separating the good from the bad can be tricky. For your convenience, we’ve made a list of the apps we think would most benefit the average RVer.
If you own a Jayco RV, this app is a no-brainer. It includes all of the information you could ever need about your RV including quick-start videos, maintenance checklists, and how-to tutorials. It also comes with a large glossary of common RV terms and camping recommendations.
National Park Service
In the past, campers needed to download a separate app for each and every national park. Now, this relatively new National Park Service app, launched at the start of 2021, enables you to view information about all 423 U.S. national parks — including guided audio tours, news alerts, top hiking trails, and much more — all from just one app.
With the JayCommand app, you have the power of your RV right in the palm of your hand. It gives you control over RV features like the air conditioning, exterior and interior lights, and awnings. It’s especially useful when you don’t want to wait on the water heater to take a hot shower after a long hike — just remotely start the heater on your phone on your way back.
Roadtrippers is an excellent companion app that tells you about interesting places near your route, including historic sites and scenic overlooks. If you believe the journey matters at least as much as the destination, this is the app for you.
InRoute does a better job at getting you to your destination than mainstream GPS apps that aren’t designed with big rigs in mind. It helps you create custom routes, find places to eat or refuel, and even checks for elevation and curves in the road.
