Publisher's Summary

Want more freedom and travel in your life? Read on to discover an increasingly popular lifestyle that’s surprisingly affordable.

In the words of Bob Dylan, "The Times They Are a-Changin'." And while this sentiment will always be true, right now it means some pretty exciting things are happening. They have the potential to revolutionize lifestyle and dramatically increase your quality of life.

Ubiquitous technologies and flexible societal structures have created opportunities that were previously unimaginable. For example, remote and freelance work has become incredibly common and highly popular given its desirable flexibility and convenience.

The RV lifestyle takes these ideals a step further. Living entirely in an RV, you untether completely from a traditional home base and start having a new experience of life.

Despite what you might think, the RV lifestyle isn’t just for the wealthy or the retired. While it’s an alternative living arrangement, you can still continue to work, have a place to come home to every night, and raise a family.

Nine million families in the US currently own an RV. Of those, nearly half a million live in theirs full time. This trend is only increasing.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to get out of the daily grind with more...

  • Freedom
  • Travel
  • Connection to nature and outdoor activities
  • Focus on experiences and relationships (rather than stuff)
  • ...and adventure.

It just takes some preparation, adjustment, and investment to get everything in place and in the swing of things. Though there’s upfront effort and expenses, you´ll end up saving time and more than $5,000 a year in the long run.

The RV Lifestyle Manual helps you see if this is for you, get everything up and running, and plan while on the road. In the audiobook, you’ll discover:

  • Tons of details and requirements covering every aspect of the RV lifestyle that most people don’t think of until they’re on the road
  • Answers the riddle of how to live comfortably on the open road (easier than you think)
  • Key requirements for earning an income while traveling
  • Baby steps to downsizing your life and making money in the process
  • RV purchasing guide - what to look for in an RV based on your situation, intended use, and budget
  • Unexpected things that come up regularly and how to deal with them like it’s no big deal
  • How to change things up to make RVing work with children and pets
  • Surprisingly simple things you can do to make a small space feel bigger and homey
  • Planning your route with lesser-known campgrounds to save money and delight your soul
  • Frequently asked questions and concerns resolved
  • And much more

Some people resist the idea of an RV lifestyle because it’s different than conventional living. While the benefits are extraordinary, the apprehension about change and costs is understandable.

By first learning about everything that’s involved with the RV lifestyle, you can make an informed choice.

Further, you can stagger the changes you’re making so everything doesn’t come all once. For instance, you can transition to working remotely, downsizing to a smaller fixed living arrangement, or renting an RV to experience it for a limited time.

These baby steps give you a firsthand experience that helps you see the RV lifestyle is for you without needing to fully commit. And from there, you can move forward with the entire plan.

If you want to upgrade to a lifestyle that gives you more of what you’re looking for in life, listen to this audiobook.

This is an amazing book

This is an amazing book about the RV lifestyle. This book has taught us so much, and given us some great hints! When I began listening it, I didn't expect to learn even half this much, since we've been RVing for a couple of years, but Jeremy Frost are so knowledgeable that I just keep learning more in every minutes.

Very enjoyable audio

Very enjoyable audio. I've been researching full-time RVing now for a couple of years and this book really hits the high points well. It also does a good job of covering areas some folks don't think about, like the emotional aspect of giving up the sticks & bricks for a motor coach.

I plan to go back now and explore many of the outside resources the authors point to in the book. This book will help explain to my friends why I want to hit the road and explore the country and how I plan to do so.
