Top 5 RV Books to Buy and Learn From

OK, there’s a million different books out there to choose from when it comes to RVing. Which one is best for you? Well, you can do what I did and buy every one that pops up on your Amazon search. Or, just pick these 5 and  save yourself a ton of time and energy. I hope they help you as much as they helped us!

RV Book #5: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to RVing 3rd Edition

If you are anything like I was, you are a Complete Idiot when it comes to RVing. I didn’t know anything about it and welcomed a book that pulled no punches and took it from the most basic level. This book is the updated 2012 version and is as practical as it is relevant. Well worth the investment.

RV Book #4:  The RVer’s Bible: Everything You Need to Know about Choosing, Using and Enjoying Your RV

This was a great book that helped me all the way through the process. It was in this book that I learned the differences between a Class A, B and C RV and the difference between a motorhome and a motorcoach. (If you don’t know, I won’t spoil it for you. I’ll simply let the suspense build). There is even a section for someone with physical challenges and how to work through those in your RV. Good Book!

RV Book #3: The Complete Book of Boondock RVing: Camping off the Beaten Path

This is definately a niche book… but an AWESOME way to live. If you don’t know what “Boondock” means without the word “Saints” behind it, then let me tell you that it means living in the middle of nowhere. No plugs. No sewage. No nothing, except you and the awesomeness of nature surrounding you. If you are in to that thing, let your Henry David Thoreau come out and nestle next to Walden Pond. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, get the book for free from Kindle and get ready to hear a ton of words!)

RV Book #2: How to Live in a Car, Van or RV – And Get Out of Debt, Travel and Find True Freedom

I added this one for two simple reasons. First, I wanted to do a shameless plug of wanting to live “in a van down by the river” (RIP Chris Farley). The second reason is more about you than me. The book is currently only $2.99 through Kindle and a great way to dive in for cheap. So, if you want to get started learning today and didn’t want to wait for the postman, pick this book up. It’s a little over 100 pages and an easy read.

RV Book #1: Adventure’s on America’s Public Lands

One of the most overlooked gems is the beauty and inexpensiveness of RVing on America’s Public Lands. There are places all over this country where you can RV for free to very low prices in comparison to the big RV parks across the country. This book spans over 27 states and has full color photos. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, and I bet you will too!

I hope that helps. If you know of another great resource, link to it below. I’d love to check out some new books and sites as I continue to learn about the joys and beauties of RVing.

Happy Trails!
