I've been mulling over the purchase of an RV and picked up a book by JD Gallant. "How to Select, Inspect, and Buy an RV." He's got some pretty good information on design flaws, safety issues, dealing with salespeople without losing your shirt, etc. etc. Some of the safety information is hair-raising and shouldn't be missed. He comes across, in the book, as the Ralph Nader of RVs.
He also maintains a website, www.rv.org
, (not to be confused with www.rv.com
), which adds more of the same PLUS he'll sell you a CD of RV ratings so you know what you're getting into before you buy.
Has anyone out there gone this route before buying their RV? The CD is $78 smackers, so I'm looking for reviews before I buy.
