9 Best Books for RVers

Certainly! Here’s an updated version of your paragraph with the keyphrase included:

The RVer community is about as diverse in terms of personalities as it can get, however, there seems to be an overlap amongst almost all of them, and that’s the desire for escape. Maybe you want to escape from a job, a lifestyle, a grind, a city, a way of thinking, but either way, it’s consistent throughout most people who choose this lifestyle. Because of this, I’ve made a list of books for RVers that will inspire, motivate, and educate you on why getting into an RV is a logical decision to make (contrary to what most of society would tell you).

The RV Book By Mark Polk

rv books, rv tips, rv guides

The RV Book is the only pure information based book on this list, and that’s partly because of how in-depth it is. This is a practical read for anyone who is primarily concerned with the nuts and bolts of actually how to pull off RV living.

Packing Light by Allison Vesterfelt

50 states, motivational rv books, rat race, wanderlust

This memoir is about a twenty-something year old woman abandoning her materialist lifestyle in favor of adventure. This is a highly motivational biography that will resonate and inspire many RVers, as it deals with how we try to cope with the accumulation of baggage that is so easy to do in our modern society (both from a physical and emotional standpoint).

50 States, 5000 Ideas

rv travel guide, united states roadtrip, best rver books

Similar to Packing Light, this is also about traveling across every state in the U.S., but it’s a more practical book, one that will definitely make you add a few locations to your bucket list. After reading this book, it’ll be easy to see why so many people in America choose to take to the roads in search of sights and adventure.

Winnebago Nation by James B. Twitchell

american histroy books, best rv books, roadtrip guide, rv guide

The only book on this list that could be categorized as a history book, Twitchell takes a look at the origins of RVs and nomadism in america. This is surprisingly entertaining and it’s an easy recommendation for anyone interested in why RV travel strikes such a cord with americans.

The Alchemist by Paulho Coelho

travel books, wanderlust books, best books

While it may not have anything to do with RV living, the alchemist is one of the most definitive books when it comes to inspiring us to seek the unknown. This fictional tale tells the age old story of a young boy searching for a lost treasure, and finding riches far greater along the way.

Vagabonding By Rolf Potts

rver books, best travel books, wanderlust

Veteran shoestring traveler Rolf Potts takes readers on a trip across the world in this biography. Equal parts fun and wise, this book reinforces the spirit of adventure and living life on your own terms.

The Road Less Traveled by Robyn Robledo

family rv travel, rv living, rv books

This biography is one that’s purely about the RV lifestyle; why it makes sense monetarily and spiritually. Admittedly, this is a bit of a shameless plug in, but my mom’s book on the subject of RV living is as authentic as it gets. If you want to hear a real, grounded story about wanting to escape the rat race, then you can’t do any better than this book, which tells the story about how parents chose to ditch their stressful, suburban lifestyle, in favor of creating lasting memories. If you enjoy this read, and want to learn more about the wild family behind this book, check out their blog

The Art of Travel by Alain De Bottom

travel guides, mindset books, rver books

Less of a travel guide on WHERE to travel to, and more a guide on WHY people travel, De Bottom’s book will help you get into the proper mindset of a traveler. This philosophical travel book also operates as a bit of a history book as well, examining some of the most renowned explorers of the modern age.

A Walk in The Woods by Bill Bryson

hikijg books, advnture travel, wander lust, rver books

Hiking is one of the biggest reasons people choose RV living, however, Bill Bryson’s book doesn’t stop there. In addition to being an epic romp through the woods, this book also serves up plenty of amusing anecdotes, fascinating tidbits of ecology, and personal exploration as well.

It’s wonderful that you’re expanding my reading list with books for RVers. I’m always eager to explore new reads! I’ll dive into those lists you’ve linked and explore the suggested book titles.

The versatility of RV living is fascinating, isn’t it? And I appreciate the mention of your blog post on the affordability of RV living. It’s always insightful to explore different perspectives on such lifestyles. And homeschooling while RVing sounds like an incredible adventure!

Thank you for the suggestions and for thinking about how these reads can inspire not just as an RVer but as a person overall. I’ll be sure to keep that in mind as I explore these books for RVers!
