Imagine a life with no deadlines, no neighbors, no leaves to rake, and no lawn to mow. The open road calls, and your home goes with you wherever you travel. Welcome to the world of fulltime RVing self-sufficient, comfortable, and mobile. This third edition of the best-selling Living Aboard Your RV, will help you decide if RVing is the right choice for you, taking you through every step of hitting the road full time.
Revised and updated for todays younger, savvier RV owners, this new edition of Janet and Gordon Groenes classic features a new section on home schooling, a more comprehensive resources section, and updated coverage on using the Internet to take care of such things as banking; staying in touch with friends, family and business associates; medical care; bill paying, and other essentials. Readers will also find the latest on new RV models. Yet, despite all the changes, Living Aboard Your RV retains the many timeless features that have made it the top-selling guide of its kind.
The RV revolution is truly one of the wonders of our time. It grew out of the dream of traveling without leaving "home" and became a reality for hundreds of thousands of Americans because of today's fine-quality, fully equipped, and very comfortable recreational vehicles. It's not "roughing it" anymore to live full time on the road.
Modern technology has made full-time RVing easier than ever, and this book tells how. The Internet has revolutionized the ways we can communicate, pay bills, educate children, and earn a living. GPS navigation signals, telephone calls and TV and subscription radio services are bounced to full-time RVers from satellites.
And idea that full-time RVers are an isolated bunch of "gypsys" is simply not true. Through RV clubs and/or social gathering at RV parks, most RVers find their lives filled with familiar faces. In fact, people who travel via recreation vehicle claim to feel healthier, both physically and mentally, than they would be if they led more sedentary lives, according to an anthropological study of RV owners by professors David Counts, Ph.D., and his wife Dorothy Counts, Ph.D.
Authors Janet and Gordon Groene, an award-winning writer and photographer team, spent more than 10 years as full-time wanderers, living aboard a boat in the summer and their motorhome in the winter. Janet writes RV columns and features for national magazines, and the couple have collaborated on more than a dozen popular travel books, including Cooking Aboard Your RV and Great Eastern RV Trips.
