I use a Rand McNally RVND 7730. Allows setting custom RV configuration such as length, weight, height, propane tanks, and whether or not you are towing. Works well for me.

I use an older version of the same unit. I like it. Display is great, options are good. Only thing I had to do was to stop the voice telling me "Speed Warning" every time I exceeded 5 miles over the speed limit. Plus it came with life time map updates. And best of all I bought it used for about 25% of the cost of a new one.

I like the Garmin RV 760LMT. You can find it online for about $350. There are a couple of nice features. 1) Lifetime map updates. 2) Traffic information. 3) Put in the dimensions of your RV and it will avoid taking you to a bridge too low or an alley too narrow.

Same here. Bought the RV760LMT with backup camera. Installed and connected Camera to license plate light so when I am towing the boat or toad I can keep an eye on them. Have noticed a couple wrong directions from the GPS.

+1 on the Garmin, with back up camera. Garmin works great, use google maps also to compare routes, like the vantage of the Garmin back up camera on the license plate as well...after disconnecting the Toad, its great for backing in with the reference it give you to judge distance.

I use a Rand McNally RVND 7730 as well. Really like the unit with the settings to configure RV length, width & height so you don't catch that low bridge. I also had to disable the annoying "Speed Warning". Bought mine on EBay from an individual that evidently bought an in dash unit. Very pleased with the performance but I also check it against Google Maps because all GPS's are not always showing the best route.
