I read a lot of RV books as I started my research. Just about whatever questions or problems crop up in my life, I head for books to find answers or clarification.  Many of the RVing books I was able to get at the library or through inter-library loan. I did buy several books that I have kept to refer to, but they take up space and add weight and I suppose I will eventually have to give some away.

Many RVers love to read just as much as I do. Most RV parks and campgrounds have a library - sometimes quite extensive and sometimes just a shelf or two in the laundry room. You may even find hard copies of some of the RV books mentioned here. RVers can swap out the books they've read and pick up another. Many RVers are great readers, so don't neglect to ask the ones you meet if they have any books to swap.

My Recommendations
for RV Books
to Get You Started

My advice is to get a Kindle or some other E-Reader when you first decide to become an RVer. That way you avoid the weight and space problems with physical copies of rv books. I'm a little slow at jumping on new technology, but finally did get a Kindle and am so glad I did. 

I got the Paperwhite due to budget constraints, which is fine (except for art books!) and have discovered that it is wonderful for any kind of travel. It takes up so little space it will fit in a purse and there are hundreds of books you can download - for free or very little cost. 

E-books or RV-books on CDs are the answer for an RVer and there are many more available today than when I first started my research. Below, I’ve listed several rv e-books that I believe will be useful.

Can you afford to retire to an RV? Is the RV lifestyle for you? This book will answer many of your questions.

Many of us need to find ways to either save on campground costs, make some extra money, or both. When I first decided to become a full time RVer, I got  Support Your RV Lifestyle by the same authors. Unfortunately that book is now out of print though you may find a copy in a campground library, or available used at Amazon.

There are other books and a great deal of information all available at the RV Lifestyle Experts website. Click here to visit Pine Country Publishing.

How about some RV Fiction?? There is a new series of mysteries featuring intrepid full-time RVers. What could be better? I’ve just started reading “Pea Body” which is the first in the series.
