RVers and international travelers will find this book an engaging resource that reads like an adventure. After studying their pricing options, the authors decided to ship their RV overseas with them to travel throughout Europe instead of renting one. The savings from doing this were substantial, as well as having all the comforts of home within their RV, not to mention the freedom and flexibility to travel when and where they wanted (a factor that all fulltime RVers know and love).

For anyone considering, this is THE essential reference book to have. For those new to RVing, the book covers all aspects of traveling via RV, and is packed with inside tips for RV veterans as well on campgrounds, countries, places to see, currency, budgeting, shopping, eating, insurance, fueling, the mail, telephone, Internet websites, inside tips about countries, everything there is to know. The author's travelogues are included from their trips in the appendices section that tells of destinations and campgrounds stayed at.

The authors were initially surprised when they discovered that language was not a barrier in their travels. Most of the campgrounds, markets, and tourist attractions understood and spoke English. As Europeans vacation more than Americans, there are many campgrounds to choose from, with easy access via the highway systems. After completing their first extended six month trip in Europe, they kept their RV in storage in Europe, then continued the next year in England.

My wife has been wanting to go to Europe, and as RV fans as well, this book provides all the tips and resources needed to plan the perfect extended trip.
