    This book has answers to questions you haven't even asked. If you are interested in going full time in your RV, then this is the book for you. If you are already fulltiming in your RV, it's a great review with plenty of tips. The book is well written and you can tell that the authors had fun while they were RVing across the country as evidenced by their stories. I would put this book at the top of your list in preparation of buying an RV.
