"I loving RVing. Now don’t get me
wrong, I really enjoyed bass fishing and deer hunting, two legged ones of
course, but I gave all that up for RVing because I couldn’t take my family
with me. When you own an RV it’s like you own timeshares in all your
favorite places. And the best part is you don’t have to share."

Click on the states below for links to campgrounds, RV parks and resorts. We rarely link to national and state parks since they are well-publicized on federal and state websites and highway signs. We use Copilot 10 on the road; yet in the initial planning of long trips, we like to be able to open our Official Good Sam Club RV Road Atlas and plan our trip. This RV atlas makes it easy to choose a route that'll provide you with pleasure and conveniences. Nan Kilar and Bob Miller
Hello RV, Goodbye Timeshare by Eleanor Goold
Recreational Vehicles, or RVs as are they are commonly known, can offer a great travelling experience for both the intrepid traveller and the recreational holiday maker alike. Not only are they a fun and convenient way to travel, but they can prove much more economical than staying in expensive hotels.
Anyone who has travelled extensively will appreciate the luxury of having their own room with their own things in it. That's the joy and simplicity of RVing: you just take your home with you wherever you go. On top of this you can bring your pets on vacation with you and prepare your own food. But there must be more to RVing than that; what about all the other benefits?
Although there are a plethora of books and manuals available on RVs, the book by Nan Kilar and Bob Miller, not surprisingly entitled 'RV', is a refreshing break away from the norm. This book provides you with a reliable and honest opinion of the reality of life on the road with an RV.
This book is full of insights and solutions and includes the sort of things you wished you had known before buying an RV. The book tells you things that you won't know when you don't have any extensive experience of being on the road. However, this book is not just for the newbie RVer, old-timers will also benefit from this book, mostly through a good old chuckle, and the knowledge that they too have been in a similar situation.
If you are looking for an RV manual, or a list of extensive details about RVs, you can get them for free on the Internet. If you have an RV, it is likely that you already have this type of information in the owner's manual. This book is not an owner's manual, however. Instead, it is a little treasure trove of helpful insights and amusing anecdotes. However, these anecdotes are not without purpose. The authors have experienced the ups and downs of RVing so you don't have to.
This book is different from the rest; it was written by a couple of experienced RVers and includes insights into what it's really like on the road. It has plenty of useful and practical tips and information as well as some not so practical information.
The authors, Bob Miller and Nan Kilar, are an experienced RV couple who have been there, seen that, and are clearly wearing the tee-shirt. What this book is, and what distinguishes it from the rest, is a fun and informative glimpse into life on the road, warts and all.
The book includes excellent tips on everything from maintenance to interior design to what ladder to buy for your RV. For those who have yet to buy an RV, the book includes a hilarious yet useful run through of Class A to C, travel trailers and fifth wheels, along with the pros and cons of each.
Not only will this book have you chuckling throughout, but by the end you will also have a better understanding of RVing and what it really entails. After reading the book myself, I was much more enlightened about all aspects of RVing and even learned about things I didn't even know existed, such as valve core extenders. Not only that, but it also inspired me to plan for my next trip.
Written in an easy to read and friendly style, this short book is all you need to prepare you for the open road. The authors make clear that this book is not an RV Bible, and I would second that. It is much more: it is an RV classic.
But I will not spoil it for you by divulging any further detail; chock-full with recommendations, really useful information and web addresses where appropriate, this book is a must for any current or wannabe RVer's library.
