Where to go for help?
I get a lot of questions these days from new RVers hungry for information on one thing or the other and find myself giving out links to many different RV web resources. So I decided to put them down on one RVing resources page. Below you’ll find some of the websites I have bookmarked and recommend to others.
Finding Places to Stay
Allstays.com – Use the on site map or download the app to find information on RV Parks and much more.
Freecampsites.net – Great site to find free or cheap places (not always up to date though but still good).
RVparking.com – Nice interface for getting info on RV Parks. Needs more reviews though.
RVparkreviews.com – My go to review site. Been around a while so has a good amount of reviews.
PassportAmerica.com – %50 off camping at participating parks. (Good deal if you travel a lot)
RVHappyHour.com – I really, really like this one.

RVForum.net – Another long-running forum with a huge backlog of postings.
RV-Dreams.com – Great forum, especially for folks looking to go full time.
Little tip for you on forum searching. Besides using the websites own forum search many times you can use Google to search the forums using the word site:”the website address” “search term”. For example site:irv2.com oregon coast.
Other forums to consider are rig specific forums. I own a Keystone Cougar so like using the forum – KeystoneRV.org – Forum run by Keystone owners.
