The trip planner is helpful in calculating not only fuel costs but travel time. Travelers can use the planner to research Good Sam parks and then add them to the planner. Other options available through the planner are how to avoid highways or tolls, and information about low clearance and tunnel warnings. The Good Sam trip planner includes thousands of points of interest, such as museums and attractions.

Once the information has been added to the trip planner online through the Good Sam website, the planner can then be downloaded to a Good Sam GPS. The devices, developed by Rand McNally, are specifically designed for RVs and large vehicles. The screens are 90 percent larger than most GPS units. Good Sam GPS units also include a list of Good Sam RV parks and resorts. The units are available through a variety of retail outlets, but purchasers must be a member of the Good Sam Club to access the trip planner.
