Books - RVing for Dummies?

Looking for a good book to help me start my shopping and also to decide if I want to take the plunge. I've seen a few books out there that might help, but I'm wondering if there are just a few that everyone thinks are best.

What book(s) would you suggest for "getting the basic" education for a motorhome (Class A and or C)?

I do get the motorhome magazine but I don't trust it because it only makes me want to retire sooner.


Finally retired but still looking. As we all know, things change when you least expect!

Continue to read the forum and ask questions on items you don't understand or need additional information. Make sure if you are asking questions that you are very specific. That will allow people to give better answers. Try going to rvbasics.com, they have some good beginners info. and have checklists. If you haven't been in an RV I would recommend you rent one for 4 to 7 days and see if you like the experience. Then you can decide if you like it.

Good Luck

When we started I had never been camping in my life.
What I know I learned from the different rv forums, web sites and just doing.
You can learn so very much from these forums, just read and study what is there.

First you have to decide what you want out of an Rv. RVing isn't necessarily camping.
I don't like camping, but I love traveling and living in my RV.
