As the owners of the RV LIFE network, which includes sites such as RV Trip Wizard, Campground Reviews, and RV Life, we’re proud to announce our newest development. After the success of the RV LIFE mobile app over eight months ago, we’ve decided to release a new and improved version in the app’s latest update, making it more convenient than ever before for RVers to plan the ideal trip. Enjoy the app you know and love, now with brand-new features.
The RV LIFE app version 2.0 is available now in the App Store.
The newest version of the app uses the information you enter about your RV such as length, height, weight, and propane status to calculate the a safe route for your RV. With RV Safe GPS, our all-new navigation system, you’ll automatically be directed along routes without low clearances, bridges with weight limits, or anti-propane tunnels. The app will calculate the ideal route, complete with voice navigation, lane guidance, and real-time traffic updates! Simply enter your vehicle information, choose your favorite destination, and enjoy the quickest, safest journey available. No need to buy a dedicated RV GPS!
RV LIFE version 2.0 now provides access to the popular site RV Trip Wizard as well. If you are a Trip Wizard member, you’ll now be able to access all your trips from the app, without having to visit the website. Just sign in once with your RV LIFE ID and allow the app to automatically sync your trips into the app’s navigation system. Any modifications or new trips you create on the website will also show up on the app. The app will use RV Safe GPS to give you turn-by-turn directions for each trip, including all campsites and fuel stops!
Our goal was to make RV Life as intuitive as possible. The app is location aware (with your consent to use your location) providing you relevant information including nearby campgrounds, popular regional campgrounds, local weather forecasts and more.
We know it can be a hassle to find the campgrounds you’ve stayed at and enjoyed, so we’ve made it easy to save your favorite parks. Even better, campgrounds favorited in the app can also be access through the favorites feature on the Campground Reviews website!
We wanted our users to have access to a database that is both expansive and accurate. All the information from our popular website, Campground Reviews, is now available in the RV LIFE app. Our data is trusted by millions of RVers and validated by their experiences.
The reason so many RVers trust CampgroundReviews is because the reviews are extremely detailed. For example, other review sites such as TripAdvisor, Yelp, Google or Facebook do not gather and report on RV specific information. That’s what makes our reviews unique—our platform is specially designed to capture and return pertinent information relevant to RVers. When you leave a review, you’ll be asked specific questions about the campground, your campsite, your rig, tips for other RVers, and more.
The ability to filter parks helps you find the perfect park. We included options in the list of filters so you can set your requirements and see only campgrounds that will meet your needs. You can filter on things price, rating, park type, affiliation (Good Sam, Passport America, FMCA, etc), amenities, kid friendly and big rig access. Using our experience as RVers, we developed a way for you to find the right RV parks, quickly and efficiently.
One of RV Park Review’s most unique features is the ability for users to leave a tip about what to do, where to eat or places to shop near each campground. These tips are helping thousands of RVers get the lay of the land prior to arriving. We decided to bring this feature into the RV Life app, allowing you to access plenty of firsthand advice from your smartphone.
Nearly 9,000 RV-related articles are available on RV Life and Do It Yourself RV. We added an in-app browser to the RV Life mobile app so that you can access the entire collection from the Articles tab.
Since some RVers might have specific questions about a campground, we’ve implemented Q&A forums into every park in our database. If you want more information on a park, just ask a question. We designed the app to solicit responses from RVers who’ve stayed at that park so that you’ll get quicker responses. Keep in mind that this feature isn’t designed to help you make reservations.
One issue with most campground apps is they don’t work right when you don’t have an active internet connection. This means they are useless when you are at that remote and beautiful campground without internet access.
We wanted to fix this so that our app would work properly and quickly, even when offline. Simply download maps by state and enjoy offline RV Safe GPS directions, complete with turn-by-turn voice navigation and lane guidance! Plus, as long as you’re subscribed to RV LIFE Premium, you’ll receive free, automatic updates to your downloaded maps.
RV LIFE provides an elegant approach to offline navigation—just pick the states you want to download and you will have detailed maps available anytime, anywhere, whether you are connected to the internet or not.
We’re excited to introduce you to this invaluable new resource for RVers. Whether you choose to become a premium subscriber or simply download the app and use it for free, we’re positive you’ll love the experience.
New updates will be coming soon—this version of RV LIFE is only the tip of the iceberg. We’re working hard to add more features so you can access all of the RV LIFE Network sites through this app. With time you will be able to participate in our popular forums and access other innovative features.
We are constantly working to improve your experience, and we’d love to hear any suggestions you may have. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas!
