This is a lot like Lotus Notes where you had databases rather than notebooks that replicated between servers and local devices. I was a Notes admin in a previous life. Maybe that's why I like Springpad so much.
Thanks for the feedback. Springpad is usually compared to "Evernote" which is a note/list keeping mobile APP. A reviewer compared the two APPs this way:

Evernote is for geeks, and Springpad is for busy soccer moms. One is very technical, the other very practical when adopted into everyday life.

I think that organizing for traveling and working on the trailer is basically a list and note taking endeavor. Plus, you're always researching some hardware or software product to purchase for your trailer.

What is nice is the ability to download recipes, products and upcoming events (such as plays, music festivals, wine tasting, etc). to your online "notebooks". It is so nice to camp near a small town and be able to "recall" events to attend.

Just got my weekly e-mail update from SpringPad. It included a blog on how to plan a trip using Springpad. Everything can be organized in one place which makes things super easy for the trip planner.

If you scroll down to the comments section, you can see how the staff answers concerns, such as how to include maps.

What is in it for them? They can't run without a profit, where does it come from?

I believe that they get online merchants to support them.
