FYI, for trip planning, and record along the way we used RVParky.com, on line. It worked mostly ok but a bit stubborn at times. We would use it again. It’s hard to beat “free”.
The coach performed exceptionally well with no issues at all. The coach is a Country Coach Magna Resort, C-12 (Cat)Engine, 505 HP, 42ft, towing a Jeep Cherokee Up Country 4×4. Coach GCVW ~ 47k lbs
