Here’s a Bonus Book for #18. It doesn’t fit squarely into the RV living peg, but it is one of our favorite reads about camping and outdoor adventure as a family.

This book provides tons of information and tips to make a camp adventure fun and exciting for the entire family. But what I really enjoyed about this book is the tone and sly humor while also providing helpful instructions.
If you’re searching for something other than a long list of what to do and not do, then give this book a try.
