RVers- How do they live like that?
Full-time RVing is not dropping off the face of the earth. It is not an endless vacation. Judy Farrow and Lou Stoetzer in RVers — How do the live like that? have shown what RV life is like, styles of RVing and what to expect as a full-timer. Sprinkled with actual cases, it makes for fascinating reading and gave voice to things RVers experience but may not put into words. It is an excellent book for those thinking about the RV lifestyle and to give to relatives of RVers to get insight in the lifestyle. Current RVers will enjoy the book and find it helpful, particularly at transition points in their lives.
