The Top Five RV Life Books to Soothe a Bad Case of Wanderlust
Not all RVers choose to live in diesel pusher coaches or towable trailers. The van life movement is more popular than ever and this book shows exactly why.
With hundreds of funky vehicles, awe-inspiring landscapes, and cleverly designed interiors in tiny spaces, Van Life is perfect for anyone who dreams about living on the open road.
More and more, people of all generations — from millennials to baby boomers — are taking a break from conventional life for the freedom, tranquility, and adventure of being on the road and living in a converted vintage truck, camper, or van.
One of these van-dwellers, Foster Huntington, created the #vanlife hashtag as he chronicled his adventures of living in a van and driving it across the country. He tapped into a community of like-minded individuals looking to explore nature at their own pace and live a debt-free lifestyle.
Van Life showcases the best crowd-sources photographs from Foster’s social media accounts — many of which have never been posted or seen before. Organized into sections like Volkswagen vans, American vans, converted vans, school buses, and more, the selection of photos includes shots of the unique vehicles and the beautiful locations they’ve been parked. From stunning beaches to dramatic mountains and picturesque forests, and with fully designed interiors with kitchens and sleeping quarters, this stunning array of life-on-the-road-possibilities might just be enough to get you to pack up your things and hit the highway.
Also included are informative and topical interviews with solo travelers, couples, and families who are living this new American dream.
What better way to learn about the RV life than from people who’ve been doing it for a few years? This book shares great insight into the lifestyle and how to get started.
Whether you’re downsizing or thrill-seeking—or anything in between—find out if the RV lifestyle is right for you, and learn how to transition from a life of traditional home-ownership to one on the road.

Learn if life in a motor home is right for you, with insightful details on the experiences of full-time RV-ers, tips for how to choose an RV (how big? new or used?), whether to sell your home (and if not, what to do with it), model costs, sample routes and destinations, basic vehicle maintenance, legal and government considerations—and much more!
