You’re ready to see the world your way in a house on wheels.

Investing in a recreational vehicle is a big-purchase decision, and many first-time buyers may not know what to look for when shopping.

In RV Buyer’s Handbook, Walter Gerber presents a guide to help you make sense of the ins and outs of buying an RV and to prevent you from getting a “lemon” or a “money pit”. Based on his years of experience camping and working as an RV inspector, Gerber offers a look at a host of factors to consider. He discusses the different types of RV’s, reviews the array of features available, shares maintenance considerations and tips, and helps you understand the unit’s many systems.

From your first outing, to setup and tear down, to troubleshooting and more, the RV Buyer’s Handbook presents a single-source guide to help you navigate the process of choosing, equipping, and enjoying an RV.

Walter Gerber

Having camped regularly since his childhood, the author is close to the RV community. Over the years he has owned nine different RVs and spent four years living full-time in a fifth wheel trailer. While working as a certified RV inspector through the National Recreational Vehicle Inspectors Association, he has encountered many RVs that had significant hidden problems that would ultimately put them in the category of money pits for the buyer. Many first-time buyers have no idea what they are getting into. Guided by this experience, the author was driven to prepare this 2nd edition, expanded, handbook.
