Really really helpful. It's pretty clear that the writer of this book uses a fifth wheel which was kind of helpful since that's what we want to get.

Aside from some skip-able parts (because every Complete Idiot's Guide has that since not everything pertains to everyone), there is much in here that helped me and thus took lots of notes.

I love this book! It is extremely useful to someone looking to upgrade from tent camping. The authors cover the different types of RVs and point out the pros and cons of each. As the title suggests, this is for beginners only, which is perfect for my needs.

For me, this book wasn't particularly helpful. I was looking at buying a "classic" RV, and this book assumes that you will be looking at newer (late 90's at least) models. I'm looking at an RV that is a year older than I am! So, not very helpful there.

Therefore, it didn't discuss much in the ways of repair and maintenance for my vintage model. Or what I should look at for anything predating, roughly, 1998. It also, while true for me but maybe not for others, that I was looking at a motorhome sty

A good general knowledge book for newbies to the RV lifestyle. It did not go in any depth on any particular topic, but gave a nice overview to assess if this lifestyle is something for you.
