While the author emphasises on fifth wheel travel and use, her book applies to other RV rigs about as well.
We've read other books that purport to be helpful to those new to RV's or just new to fifth wheel's, but none even remotely as knowlegably or effectively written.
Having enjoyed 21 years in our 24' motorhome, and 3 years in a 35' trailer forty years ago, we aren't new to the pleasures or potential problems of RV's. Yet this is one book we've both read several times already and it has a permanat place in our new rig's library.
If you don't have it already, buy it!
(No, we've never met the lady and don't work for her publisher, either. But we hope to run into her one day so we can say "thank you!" properly).

Her advice on picking a dealer and dealing with him on your RV sat inside my head while working on my order. I wasn't afraid to ask for more, to ask for different, to ask and ask again. And I got all I asked for, got all those EXTRAS and I walked away from the table the winner.
My trailer is coming fully loaded and I'm not paying a penny more then the original asking price. My husband said not a word at the table...just listened as I went down my list of wants and needs. Which I would not have had had I not taken the time to read Ms. Ray's book not once, but twice! I found the book easy to read, so I read it again to make sure I got everything she wrote and spoke about inside me.
Ms. Ray saved me over $2000.00 in extras and because of that my life on the road will be much smoother to get used to. Thank you Ms. Ray for taking the time to share your ideas, and to do the research you did.
The book was full of all of the information we needed to begin looking for a recreational vehicle (thank you for your help in choosing an RV dealer), what we needed to do to get started and also gave us the enthusiasm we needed to push us over the top. The stories were not just funny but a warning about what to avoid. The tips, hints and checklists will be of great value to us when we get started. And at the top of our shopping list will be plexiglass and velcro. We highly recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about having this way of life.
We feel that we are fairly educated and whoever didn't like this book, must not really be interested in RVing. When we went to do negotiations at the dealership, I had highlighted quite a few things. As I told the salesperson, "I've been doing my homework," of which they all replied, "Oh, not another one." I took that as a compliment to myself as well as to Carol.
To make a long story a little shorter, we walked out of the dealership with a bare bones price of 60,000, getting everything and every option available but a w/d, that we will install later, for 45,500.
WE THANK YOU CAROL. Don and Ann Fogal aka FOGAL"S FIVER
