RVing Basics


RVing Basics Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine yourself shopping for an RV. The variety is bewildering, and the costs can be substantial. What size do you need? What features are you looking for? What are the pros and cons of certain accommodations and accessories?

RVing Basics answers all these questions and more. Veteran RVers Bill and Jan Moeller offer tips on trip planning, readying the RV for the road, and finding your way to RV parks and campgrounds across the country. Detailed, illustrated chapters explain the fundamentals of driving and handling an RV rig, maneuvering your rig into campsites, and using campground hookups. The Moellers demystify the intricacies of the RV's electrical, water, and propane systems, and offer advice on how to use them. The sections on maintaining and winterizing an RV will protect your investment. And if you'd like information on when and where to camp or how to hook up with other RVers, RVing Basics tells you that too.

This long-overdue guide, valuable for experienced and novice RVers alike, explains all the basic skills needed for safe, troublefree, and enjoyable RVing.

" . . . offers a comprehensive guide to the fundamentals of RVs and life on the road."--RV Times

"Even those who count themselves among the legions of RV veterans . . . can benefit from the information and insight inside this handy, economical guide."--Camping Today

"If you are one of those folks who has periodically thought about getting into RVing, this book is certainly for you. . . . those who already own and regularly use an RV will find answers . . . for most any question. . . . perfect reading for late winter or early spring as thoughts of camping trips to come lie ahead."--Tennessee Valley Outdoors

  • How much will I have to pay for an RV?
  • Does it take special skills to handle an RV rig?
  • Is RVing roughing it?
  • How can I locate campgrounds?
  • Is it true that RV vacations are among the most economical and are there places I can camp for free?
  • If I have a disability, can I still participate in RVing?
  • How do I use the hookups at a campground?
  • How do RV systems differ from those in my home?
