Our RV Books were a total surprise. Kathy and I never had any idea we would ever write a book, let alone two. The listeners of our podcast, Living the RV Dream, sent numerous emails saying it was hard to go back and find particular information from our broadcasts and would we write a book. In January of 2012, we received over a dozen of these. OK, we can see the writing on the computer screen, so we decided to do a book.
We thought about naming our book Living the RV Dream, but that seemed a bit tacky as it was also the name of the show, the Facebook Group, and our website. We decided to write it as a primer for folks dreaming about RVing to those already into the lifestyle. Thus "So, you want to be an RVer" was born as an ebook. We filled it with as much of our experience and that of other friends as we could remember. We put it up on Amazon in August, 2012 and on the Barnes and Noble Nook site in September. Also in September, we released the print version with the title "So, you want to be a full-time RVer?" I can't even remember why we went with different titles.
In early 2016, we extensively revised and updated the text, added 30 additional chapters, and added over 90 images and diagrams. We have a really cool new cover too. Now "So, You Want to Be an RVer" is the title of both versions.
In the summer of 2013, we wrote and released our book "So you want to be a Workamper?" that was also at the request of our podcast listeners and lots of folks on our Facebook group. We filled it with great tips on all aspects of workamping. It is on Amazon as an eBook and a print book.
I'm sure there will be at least one more book, but I won't speculate on a title or when we will get to the project.
