General RVing Links

RV.net and IRV2.com Two of the most heavily trafficked general RVing forums.

Passport America — One of the only discount clubs I pay money to belong to–I finally joined in 2017, and wish I’d done it sooner!  50% discounts for short stays at many campgrounds, and the annual fee is cheap enough that it only takes a couple of days to pay for itself.  When you dive into RVing, don’t dive into the membership right away.  Join when you find yourself booking a site at a Passport America park–it’s instant via this link.

Heavy Duty Truck Campground Directory — While the title suggests HDTs, and that’s the intended audience, its utility is broader than that.  You can find detailed descriptions of campground navigability, and realistic site size information.  Have a big rig and you’re looking for places to stay?  This directory is full of user-submitted locations that are friendly to, and accommodating of, big RV combinations.  You’ll find notes about tight turns, access roads, site lengths, etc.  If a campground you’ve stayed at fits the bill, there’s a short form to have it added to the directory.

Lighting/Equipment Links

Deep Space Lighting — Dave runs Deep Space Lighting, which started out providing headlight upgrade kits for Volvo RV haulers.  If you want to do lighting right (as in high-performance and legal), Dave’s the guy.  Feel free to ask him your general RV lighting related questions.

RVheadlights.org — Most motorhomes use headlights designed for other vehicles.  This site is a resource for locating replacement headlights, upgrades, etc.

Heavy Duty Truck (HDT) Links

Escapees HDT Forum — easily the best resource for heavy-duty trucks being used recreationally.  Great community; go here for information on the 3 annual HDT get-togethers.  For more general RVing stuff in a more close-knit community than either of the big guys, the Escapees forums are a very good resource.

Heavy Duty Truck Campground Directory — Have a big rig and you’re looking for places to stay?  This directory is full of user-submitted locations that are friendly to, and accommodating of, big RV combinations.  You’ll find notes about tight turns, access roads, site lengths, etc.  If a campground you’ve stayed at fits the bill, there’s a short form to have it added to the directory.

Heavy Duty Truck Resource Guide — Here’s lot of information for using a heavy duty truck as an RV hauler, and lots of articles and documents for various projects of interest to that crowd.

TruckConversion.net Forums — Truck conversion-specific forum.  Great resource, but doesn’t get a lot of traffic.  If you post a question, be patient.

East Coast HDT Rally — Annual gathering of HDT and truck conversion owners in April in Crossville, Tennessee.

National HDT Rally — October gathering of HDTs and truck conversions in Hutchinson, Kansas.

    Hi David, I recently bought a 2013 VNL 730. The lamps are in good shape so I won’t upgrade right away.
    I’m trying to absorb as much knowledge as I can so please add me to your email list.
    Say hi to Milo!
