Question

I’m new to cross country travel and would like information on the best way to chart my route. I’m concerned about road restrictions based upon me owning a 42 foot class A coach.

Is there an electronic app that will inform me of clearance and weight restrictions as well as incline challenges?  

I’d also like fuel stations and campground information. I’ve searched a couple of apps but they seem incomplete and difficult to navigate.  

Thanks fellow travelers,

You could use a combination of various resources, depending on your comfort level using them.

The RV version of Garmin GPS units allow you to set vehicle parameters (height, length, weight) and it will then set your route considering them.

Mountain Directories are available in both printed form and as an app.

The FMCA atlas is a great resource as well.

Then there are various apps which can show you campgrounds such as RVParky.

No problem. Forgot to mention that you can also pre-drive the route using Street View on Google maps for any segments of a route you're uncertain of, and if you are trying to plan around mountain grades you can also find elevation information on Google Earth.
