For anyone who has had already had their first few forays out in the new/old RV (you definitely need a few miles under your belt to fully understand the sarcasm), this book is for you! Read it cover to cover while taking notes, have your wife or significant other do the same, review your notes, bring this book as a desk reference on your next journey through life in an RV and avoid the mistakes the rest of us make! This is definitely a "How To", just presented in reverse and in a far funnier fashion they I would have.
It amazing how many similar circumstances Jennifer, a single woman from New York and myself, a married guy (20 years) living in Flagstaff, AZ find ourselves in on the road. Yeah, we may have messed up in different places, sometimes even in different ways, but I can't even imagine how many embarrassing incidents I would have avoided had I read this (and had she gotten on the road sooner!) "way back when".
I can't say enough, incredible job Doc and HEY YOU, Buy This Book!
I understand that this is not to be a step-by-step guide to RV'ing, however, there is a way to write the chapters that doesn't leave you questioning the point. Not to be completely unfair to the author, I did find some of the content useful, just not a lot.
Having just completed my first 2400 mile RV adventure in an older Motorhome I applaud the author's journey and subsequent courage to leave the life she knew behind and take a risk with the hope of discovering something new. I can relate to the feelings of joy one gets during the journey and the people you meet along the way despite the 'risks' you take operating an older RV and doing something that others view as crazy.
If you're in the mood for a light-hearted, quick read about the RV'ing experience while sitting at your campfire, then you might find some of the stories amusing as I did. But for practical use I'd recommend book's like "The Complete Idiot's Guide to RV'ing."
Just about every chapter tells a separate and humorous story of someone -who while green, was willing to risk it all- to learn this great country in ways that no guide ever does justice to.
Each section of the book gradually leads from the start of a dream. To actually beginning of it (getting the equipment, and the starting knowledge, et cetera) on through the life changing experience.
That being said: Chapter 34 has got to be the riskiest and shortest chapter ever written.
This book is all the things you should not and should do while RVing. It is a laugh out loud funny look at things that can and will go wrong.
Read this book so you are prepared for what will go wrong when you are just starting out. Read this book so you can decide before it is too late to walk away from the RV lot. Read this book so you are laughing too hard to drive and make your spouse read this book.
This is the Long, Long Trailer in book form. (What? You haven't seen that? Go rent it before you buy an RV.)
Thumbs up for this great adventure of tips and hints.
In order to convince her, I am reading a few books on the subject and reading Jennifer Flowers book ,shaking the bed with uncontrolled laughter perked her interest.
This is truly informative book written with a wicked sense of humor - we thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who is contemplating the RV lifestyle.
Thank you Jennifer! Was so sorry when the book ended.
