It’s always exciting planning out a road trip, but it’s also fun to explore whilst on the road. Some of our best moments in our van have been on impulse where we’ve spotted a sign to something interesting. We always make sure we have the latest phone apps downloaded ready to explore. Check out these top apps for motorhome travel before setting off on your next adventure.
FREE: Easy to use app providing recommendations for on and off-street parking.
Free trial version (£4.49 per year for the full version). Campercontact is a overnight stop app, that has 30,000 motorhome stopovers, across 50+ countries available at your fingertips. As well as parking you can find places to discharge your waste water, empty your toilet cassette and refill your fresh water.
Membership App: For those with membership to the Camping & Motorhome club this app helps search for sites, check your existing bookings and lots more.
FREE: Similar to Googlemaps but CoPilotGPS allows you to input the dimensions of your vehicle so you can avoid streets and bridges which are too small.
FREE: If you’re away for some time then there’s a good chance you’ll need to top up your LPG Gas. This is the largest live database of 46.000+ LPG stations across Europe, which is regularly updated by myLPG.eu portal visitors and fuel companies themselves.

FREE: One of our ‘go to’ apps on the road. It suggests spots where you can park up for free overnight in the van. What we love is that anyone can add places they’ve found, along with photos and comments, and share their finds with the community. We always check this app for feedback before deciding whether to camp overnight. It has wild camping, camp sites, aires and even car parks.
FREE: Parkopedia is a great service for finding car parking locations throughout the UK. A great feature is the ability to find out prices, opening times and if there are any height restrictions in place.
FREE: A great app and website that lists over 32,000 campsites, aires and motorhome stopovers across the UK and Western Europe. Another one of our ‘go to’ apps on the road.
Also worth a mention:
£2.99 iPhone app: on-site shops and services are available at a huge number of service stations all over the UK. Zoom in to check the number of motorhome spaces via satellite mode, and plan your journey and stops in advance.
Website: Provides a huge list of UK pubs and sites for wildcamping. Not an app but worth saving as a bookmark onto your phone for on the road.
