Just checked out the web site, interesting.  They even had my local state fairgrounds which I doubt many know has campsites.  Not that you would want to use it for its scenic surroundings.

A Forest River iPhone app similar to the myChevrolet app:  
That app doesn't get good reviews, but it has its usefulness.  A Forest River app could help with roadside assistance, show the nearest dealer relative to your current location, and more.

Would anyone else find such an app useful?

Hi kylekai,

A noble project to be sure, but I think you would be dealing with a lot of crossover apps and means of accessing the same info - via web browser, google maps, good sam, all stays, etc., etc.

Now if you really want to take on an ambitious project...

Convince the RV industry to standardize monitoring systems much the same way the auto industry has been doing for years (OBD). Then, an app that monitors those systems via the OBD port would be very, very cool.

Tankage (water, grey, black), Battery Condition, Indoor/Outdoor Temp, Reefer Temp, Tire Pressure, etc.

Time to consider a Kickstarter! project! Smile

I just purchased an app called Allstays. It lists all the campgrounds, all the Wallmarts, all the rest stops, the low overhead restrictions, the loves, pilot, the public parks, it has all the camping clubs, phone and web links for campgrounds etc....I paid $3.99 at the apple App Store. I think it is the one app you need when traveling with a camper. I also purchased a severe weather alert app to warn me if there a tornado or other severe weather in the area.

May be off topic but I do know of a good app that I have used and I also didnt want to start another thread since we are on trip planning apps.
Iv used RoadTrippers in the past and had worked out pretty good, they too have an app for it and im pretty sure its IOS and Android.
 
Im looking to find a good website to I can work on the trip on the computer mostly. Im not too fond of mobile apps since I try not to use my phone while driving. Also you never have reception when you need it.
 
Im planning a trip for the summer of 2017 from Anchorage AK to Texas and I am wanting to get the best trip I can on it and idt you can every start to early when planning a trip that long.

I used Google Maps to plan a trip last summer. Worked out very well.
