Have you been bit by the RV bug? Do you spend hours reading blogs on living the RV life, blogs that go on and on about a life of freedom and travel? Do you go to RV shows and wander through the huge homes on wheels, dreaming that you´re steering one of the huge beasts to wherever your heart desires? It´s easy to get caught up in what RV expert Sunny Skye calls the RV hype - for example, you´ll wake up every morning looking out your window at beautiful views of nature, you´ll meet interesting people you can sit around a campfire with and trade foil dinner recipes, and you´ll be able to travel to places you´ve always wanted to see. What the RV marketers don´t tell you is the other side of the nomadic lifestyle coin - the mechanical problems by the side of the road, the constant searching for water and a place to camp, the uncertainty of having just anyone able to walk up to your rig in the middle of the night - well, in short, the truth about the mobile lifestyle. Sunny has been RVing since she was a kid, and she´ll show you how to assess if the nomadic lifestyle is for you in an unbiased and educated manner, balancing the pros and the cons. She does this by walking you through the most common steps in the RV life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Henzel.
