I have read many books on RVs, trailers and alternative forms of shelter, including one other that I reviewed fairly recently. This is the best by such a wide margin that there's no comparison. Here's why:
-Excellent profiles not just of "stuff" but of people. These people provide inspiration, represent a great diversity of personalities, geographic locations, lifestyles and home styles, and give the book a lot of true character.
-Lots of pictures showing not glitz but detail. So many books like this look like they were conceived by the publisher's graphic designers and not the content creator. This book is different. The pictures help tell the story and you can tell these aren't models put there for effect, but the real people.
-Lots of words. Going with the above, many books like this are full of pictures with skimpy descriptions of the people who really make the story, leading one to think the pictures were actually taken in a museum or something and human details are mainly the product of the author's speculation. "Look how people must have used this..." and so on. Not here. Many of the profiles are in the subject's own words, while others are well written in the third-person.
-Perfect blend of "tech" and story. If you are interested in building such a vehicle, there are details here, and if you're just interested in reading about these people, it's still fascinating. Some books are all about facts and figures, losing the dream in piles of minutiae, while others are all fluff and no meat. Here you have both the material to form a dream and enough detail to make it materialize.
-Beautifully printed, large format. There's just an impressive amount of quality content here. Hundreds of vehicle pictures, many shots of interiors and settings, and of course the text that makes this a real book with substance and not a coffee table book that you flip through and put down.
I am ordering two more copies for.people I care about who have some of the same dreams I do and will value and treasure this book as I do. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
