I bought this item having read David Berry's excellent book on RV'ing in the UK. Much of that information and some of the photographs are duplicated in this book, but it still manages to give enough new advice to be worth the effort involved in holding it up - it's heavy! The format will not be to everyone's taste as it is basically 4 books running alongside each other across quite a wide page layout, not great for bedtime as all that page turning will earn you a swift elbow in the ribs! I did read the original review of the book in MMM, which complained about this aspect slightly and thought that the reviewer was being a bit of a fogie about it, but unfortunately I have to agree! However, the review is reproduced on David Berry's Keyham Books website, so all credit to him for leaving the slightly negative comments in. Anyway, as I say, most of the rest of the text is interesting and Mr. Berry's 'motorcaravanning logs' are very educational, with some great site reviews along the way. There are also some excellent contributions from Mrs. Berry. Indeed, a few more would not have gone amiss! One of the sections is on choosing and getting started in a camper. This is all so basic that if you already have a 'van you will probably steer clear of it. Though if you don't, it's a big bonus to the book's value. On the subject of which, I have marked it down one star as in my honest opinion, it's very expensive once the reproduced RV stuff and the buyer's guide material is taken out of the equation. But then, as I said, you may not have the RV book or the 'van as yet. Whatever you decide about value for money, it's interesting and informative and should certainly be part of every motorcaravanner's library. Just don't expect it to fit on your bookshelves!
