I took great care not to make this audiobook sound like an owner’s manual or a technical bulletin. But I wanted this audiobook to explain few basic rules, tips, and tricks of buying the right RV the very first time. If you are thinking about buying an RV in the near future, I think I can help you decide on the right one.

Excavations of a 2-meter-deep circular pit in Bergheim revealed seven human skeletons and part of an infant’s skull strewn atop the remains of seven human arms, say anthropologist Fanny Chenal of Antea Archéologie in Habsheim, France, and her colleagues.
