Popular Full-Time RVers Illustrate Journeys With Clever RV Travel Map

When Chris and Suzannah Hinton of Hinton The Trail took to full time RVing, they opted for a family friendly frog theme for their blog and YouTube channel. Followers, known as “Hoppers”,  are encouraged to Hop On! by subscribing to their newsletter or to the YouTube channel. Hoppers are able to keep track of the Hinton’s by following their hops, via a clever, interactive RV travel map.

Hinton The Trail RV Travel Map Gets An Upgrade

Recently, that fun RV Travel Map received an upgrade. To view the trails the Hinton’s have been hitting, map users are told to ‘Click on a frog or lilypad to find your next adventure!’. Larger destinations are designated by a frog, while smaller recommendations are identified by a lilypad.

A Great Use Of Tech

While cute, fun, and friendly…the RV travel map on HintontheTrail.com is also an informative, unique, and sophisticated way to present some great information. Each pop-up dialogue box contains location info, a link to their video, pictures, and informative categories such as where to go, where to stay, and where to eat. There is also a link called HOW TO PLAN IT with each entry. What you end up with is a really neat way that RVers and their kids can research fun places to go RVing.

  1. Building this map has been a long process but we really wanted other travelers to have a source of information they could quickly access to show them where to go, where to stay, where to eat, and even how to plan it. Whether it’s one night, one week, or even more there is so much to do out there and we wanted to help people find it. Thank you so much for sharing our map with your readers!! -Chris & Suzannah
