This book has one simple premise… To prevent you from buying a new or used RV “mistake”—not one in bad shape or damaged but an RV that doesn’t “fit” you and your lifestyle. When purchasing an RV (a recreational vehicle such as a motorhome or 5th wheel or travel trailer), you are going to spend a lot of money. Whether it’s $15,000 or $500,000, if you don’t know how to judge the functionality for you, or what to look for in terms of quality, then, after you seriously use it a few times, it will cost you additional dollars to make it fit your lifestyle or you will be unhappy, won’t use it, and likely want to get rid of it. Additionally, your time and safety concerns factor into this purchasing decision, too.
This book is just that—about those “things” you should be aware of when looking at an RV. It’s not about engines or maintenance or tire sizes or wheelbase. It is about the myriad of required daily tasks needed for enjoying daily living—in an unusual manner and in a smaller space. Simply, it’s about how you can judge whether you can live in that potential RV for days, weeks, or months and continue to enjoy your lifestyle.
