RV Trip Planning other than RV LIFE PRO?

What are folks using for trip planning? I've used the RV LIFE PRO Trip Planner with good results, but thought there might be better options.. thanks

We have the SightSeer 33C...and love it.

I also use the RV life pro trip planner. Once you get used using it, its a great tool.

I also use Google maps as just an all around route idea.

Even though trip planner gives the rv parks etc. I use the RV parks review also. I find that with google giving the large picture and reviews a larger foot print all works out in the end.

Planning is more than 50% of the rving fun

With the internet coming on so strong, we had moved from programs for planning and went more toward winging it as we moved along. We found we never liked the plans we made too far in advance like a full trip, so constantly had to adjust as we felt.
As we got more into doing trips, we found none were ever the same for very long so stopped trying to plan more than a day or two as we got into only moving when we felt like it!

As we opened the planning up to allow far more change, we also opened up a lot of small things to see and do that we would have driven past if we stuck to a plan.
Things that we would have missed are some of the really great things we remember.
Happened to be in Florida for the Apollo launch with the first combined Russian mission, so we hung around a few more days.
Happened to be near when whooping cranes were moving through Nebraska?
Wood storks walking through the campground woke us one morning, so we stayed to see them do it the next day!
Drove over to see Musk blow up one of the starships!

Things the guides will never get right as they have such flexible timing!
We finally got around to making the schedule instead of the schedule making us!
