Whether you’re a first-time RV rental traveler, or an experienced nomad, the Sinclair’s book kickstarts any adventure. They break down 25 fun, unusual RV trips down according to region, season, and interests. If you go RVing with dogs, they have you covered too.

New RVers can find helpful advice in the book too. It offers tips for driving safety, how to pack, where you can and can’t leave your RV, and more.

Get the inside story on RV destinations

USA RV Adventures features fold-out printed RV trip planning maps. It shows you where to get gas and groceries at different destinations. The Sinclairs also let you know if you need campground reservations, or even where wildfires have happened. Other notable mentions include driving hazards, and even health and safety tips.

Can’t-miss stops from coast to coast: Camp on the beach in the Florida Keys, follow the ruts on the historic Oregon Trail, and wildlife-watch in Yellowstone. Hike in Acadia with your four-legged friend, take in the colorful wind-swept vistas of the Badlands, and enjoy mountain-peak views with your morning cup of coffee in Colorado

In The Weekly Driver Podcast, the Sinclairs mentioned that theRV LIFE Campgrounds community is a favorite way to pick RV campgrounds for their trips. The Campgrounds tips section has great ideas for other offbeat adventures too.

“We’re big believers in using group process reviews!”

Bruce Sinclair, co-author USA RV Adventures

“We like to dig in and look at what other people have had to say about these campgrounds. People who have actually stayed there.” He goes on to explain that sometimes campground owners advertise they can handle a 40-foot camper. “But then you start digging in and you realize that it’s only one campsite!”

Other vacation planning tips they suggest for unusual RV routes:

Use satellite images to research RV campgrounds. “Any kind of research you can do to have an idea of what you’re driving into is useful,” said Bonnie.
Don’t drive more than 300 miles in one day. Grant explains that “We feel that’s about the right length to drive when you’re towing or driving something big.”
Slow down and enjoy some of the hidden places in the country. “Use the book as inspiration,” suggests Bonnie. But don’t feel like you have to stick to their unusual RV trip ideas. “Feel free to make it last longer or just take a small part of an itinerary.”

“Everybody knows the Grand Canyon, everybody knows Yellowstone, everybody knows Yosemite,” says Grant. He says that they enjoyed featuring places like Great Basin National Park in Nevada. “Which we consider one of our favorite unsung heroes of the national parks.”

Use the USA RV Adventures guidebook for RV trip planning, and you’re likely to enjoy a slower pace than other types of travel. “One of our favorite aspects about RVing is it forces you to slow down,” says Grant. “When you’re towing something, driving a large Class A, a motorhome, you’re not getting there fast!”
