It is one of the few mags we receive that I actually read cover to cover. I really enjoy it and look forward to each issue. We used to subscribe to Trailer Life when we had a TT but I think Motorhome Mag is better. Some great tech articles, and they cover all motorhomes, not just Class A's. Last month they had a review on Class B's. Something for everyone!

I was wondering the same thing. I've looked at it on line, but showing my age, I'd like a "magazine" ... Thanks for asking the (my) question larrydp,

Used to get it for years, then the downturn of the industry the magazine was reduced in page content. there are still great articles in there as i will get one from time to time but not enough to buy another subscription.

For a newbie like me it has a wealth of information. I have not subscribed but am able to get it at Books a Million. The October issue has an excellent article on electrical hookup procedures and testing.

Well, with regards to it's value, it depends on how you justify the price vs the information that you get out of it. I liked it and have been a subscriber since 2001. When I was a "newbie", I've learned a lot about RV'ing from this magazine. It has a lot of information, tips, tech helps and the like. Due to the downturn of the economy, unfortunately, the magazine now features more advertisements than before resulting in less articles that RV'ers much prefer to read.

We subscribed 10+ years ago but dropped it after a couple years. I think it is more attractive to relative newcomers to motorhomes. Once you get some experience under your belt, the articles seem a bit lightweight. It's always fun to read about a new model, though.
