Praise for previous edition:
"A perfect guide."--Anchorage Daily News
"Honest, insightful advice."--Northeast Outdoors
"If any of our family or friends were contemplating becoming fulltime RVers, the first thing I would give them is this book."--Camping & RV

Since its first edition in the early 1980s, Living Aboard Your RV has been the bible for those who want to pick up and hit the road, covering all the essential topics from choice of RV to electronic communication and costs and banking issues. The fourth edition will help turn your temptation to leave it all behind into a reality--if it is right for you.

New to this edition are:
