When you RV across America you should stop at some of these amazing places: 

Great Smoky Mountains – it straddles the borders of the states of Tennessee and North Carolina and is the most visited National Park in the US.

Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona

Everglades National Park in Florida 

Rocky Mountains – they stretch some 4,800 km from British Columbia and Alberta in Canada through Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and down to New Mexico in the US.

Acadia National Park – primarily on Maine’s Mount Desert Island

Some of these iconic highways have the best scenic drives and should be included in your RV trip:

Beartooth Highway (U.S. 212) – the drive is 109 km from Red Lodge, Montana to  SilverGate, Montana, near Yellowstone National Park’s northeast entrance. You will reach an elevation of 3,337 m as you travel through the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness.

California’s Pacific Coast Highway – you will enjoy this popular route because there are so many amazing places to stop. From Dana Point make your way north to San Francisco, while you pass nice beach towns and the area of Big Sur.

Route 66 – the most iconic road trip, where you will cross eight states, covering over 3,000 km. Start your drive in Chicago and head southwest to Los Angeles.

US Highway 2 – you will cruise along the northern states of the country from Maine to Washington State. This route is over 4,800 km and covers a very large area, but you pass through some incredible places like Acadia National Park in Maine and Glacier National Park in Montana.

Many national and state parks have campsites inside or just outside of the parks.

RV rental prices can vary greatly. Which RV you choose for your RV trip will depend on how many people you are traveling with, the amenities you want, and your budget. 

While you are on your amazing trip you will want to share your pictures and impressions with family & friends, or need to stay connected via phone, email, chats and social postings. 

With the use of eSIM you can roam around the world and avoid high roaming costs. You could purchase a physical SIM card in the country you are traveling to, but you need to find a location for a distributor. At the end of your trip you will most likely throw the SIM card away and generate more waste. 

eSIM offers you not only cost and environmental benefits. You can activate eSIM directly on your device without having to drive to a store or wait for a SIM card to be mailed. You no longer have to figure out the correct SIM card size or struggle to insert it into the device.

With the use of eSIM you no longer have to swap out multiple SIM cards if you want  to change plans. You can simply do that in your settings, directly on your device. 

With an eSIM from Red Bull MOBILE you will be covered in over 60 countries and never have to worry about running out of data.

How does an eSIM from Red Bull MOBILE work and how do you get it? 

First, check if your system is compatible with eSIM. 

Download the Red Bull MOBILE Data app to see if your device is eSim compatible. You can also check if your smartphone is supported by looking up the settings:

iOS devices: Go to Settings > Mobile Data or Cellular Data, if you have the Add Mobile Plan or Add Data Plan option, your iPhone supports eSIMs.

Supported devices include iPhone XS, XR and newer models

Android devices: Go to Settings > Connections > SIM card manager. If you have the “Add mobile plan” option, your smartphone supports eSIMs.

The majority of newer Android smartphones are supported including the Samsung Galaxy S20 or newer models, Google Pixel 3 or newer models, Huawei P40 and many more.

Once you have checked if your system is compatible you will then set up your eSIM.

Start the app and follow the instructions to set up an eSIM on your smartphone.

After your eSIM is set up you will select your destination and your bundle.

Choose the plan that suits you best and buy your eSIM card directly in the app. The first 100MB are completely free of charge!

When your plan is activated you can roam the world and surf like a local.

Your physical SIM will stay connected and your Red Bull MOBILE eSIM will too — they work simultaneously. You can select which of the two SIMs you want to use for data connectivity in your settings.

You can switch between different subscription profiles on your device by simply selecting the desired profile in the device’s settings. This change can be made without a physical SIM card swap.

This is a data-only plan, so there’s no need for a new phone number.

The eSIM from Red Bull MOBILE is very easy to use, but if you have questions or experience technical issues you can reach us by email or our 24 hour chat support on our website. We’re here to help.

When you’ve used up 80% of your data, we’ll let you know — so you won’t get stuck without any data. You’ll get another notification once your data has finally run out.

Using eSIM with the Red Bull MOBILE Data App for roaming offers several advantages compared to traditional physical SIM cards. Data roaming has become much easier, more efficient and cost-effective with the use of eSIM.
