Your Guide to Buying and RV, Living on the Road, and Loving Every Minute of it!


The The Complete RV Handbook combines RVing fundamentals with road-tested wisdom for part-time and full-time RVers.

After living on the road for eight years and interviewing hundreds of other veteran road warriors, full-timer Jayne Freeman is uniquely qualified to help you get the most pleasure from your RV with the fewest hassles.

She helps you select the home-on-wheels that's right for you; plan, load, and stock for excursions of varying durations; and arrange to be away for a week or a year. Jayne offers hundreds of tips for dealing with unexpected situations, such as breakdowns, severe weather, border crossings, health and safety issues, and more. This must-have guide includes the advice and know-how you need to:
  • Get the best deal on the RV of your dreams

    Travel with safety and confidence

    Keep your RV in top shape, inside and out

    Master the art of camping in comfort and style

    Get the best TV, phone, mail, and Internet service on the road

    Select a home base to optimize your taxes, licensing, and registration

    Prepare for and deal with emergencies

  • and much more. . .
