About the Book
RV Living in the 21st Century; The Essential Reference Guide for ALL RVers will quickly become your best friend as you explore North America. It combines the timeless information from Peggi’s first best-seller, Spirit of the Open Road and updated changes in technologies that were not even thought of pre 9/11. In this interesting tell-it-like-it-is publication, Peggi addresses everything from buying a first RV, to finding a campground, to setting up, to staying in touch with voice and cyberspace, to packing, to driving, to everyday living and so much more. The McDonalds relay their good and not so good experiences of near two decades as fulltiming motorhomers. As a Canadian snowbird that spends half the year in the U.S.A., she readily shares her comprehensive border crossing knowledge.
The answers to these questions and so many more are jam-packed between the pages of this comprehensive reference guide. Although a portion is directed to fulltimers, the mega amount of information throughout the 296 pages of RV Living in the 21st Century will assist the new RVer, travelling in any size of RV, to become comfortable in their unit. It also addresses on-going concerns of the part time and seasoned RVer.
avid RVer also relays many of the ‘life-lessons’ she learned the hard
way so those new to this life can avoid her pit-falls. The comprehensive
Index makes it easy to quickly find answers to your questions. Personal
stories of places her and John visited along with a rendition of the
unique experiences of their fascinating life on the move makes this book
difficult to put down. Many
new RVers read it once for enjoyment and several times more to highlight
specific advice. Their dog-eared copy then nestles in an accessible spot
in the RV for immediate reference.
Many dealers and RV salesmen stock this informative easy-to-read guide to present as a cherished gift to new buyers. They want their customers to enjoy their RV lifestyle journey to the fullest.
Bigitis’ Is A Common RV Ailment
Buying your first RV is always a difficult decision:
Oh the questions seem to go on and on. One thing for certain, even when you find your perfect dream machine it seems that another a ‘little nicer’ or ‘bigger’ or ‘fancier’ ‘or this’, ‘or that’, or ‘something else’ has just surfaced on your dealer’s lot or during your visit to the last RV show.
this feeling is normal and, as a result, the average trade-up time
is four-six years. Although John and I are finally driving what we feel is
our perfect home – a diesel pusher that we emphatically say will be our
last purchase but it is not always easy to stay with those convictions.
Most RVers suffer from a constant ailment referred to as ‘Bigitis’.
be aware it’s not necessary to ‘have-it-all’ on your first RV, or on
each follow-up unit either. Recently, while reminiscing about the fun and
experiences of our early travels, we discovered some of our most
enjoyable times were during our early days with our older and smaller
first RV. We could go to almost anyplace we wanted to.
Our advice is to find a unit that suits your budget and fits your needs as they are now. There are two ways to buy a unit – one for the lowest price even if it doesn’t have some main options such as a generator or an awning, etc. You can add these later or you can find one that fits your budget and ask the dealer to add extras and modification from your wish list and then negotiate on the final price. Either way works well but only you can decide the route you wish to follow.

enjoyed reading "RV Living In The 21st Century". It is
such a great book. Even after
all our years of travel I still picked up a few tips. Thanks Suzanne
24, 2004 by Ted Pagano by email
for writing your book. It will certainly help me learn to live in my
trailer economically and comfortably both at the same time. More
importantly, by it's wise and seasoned advice, it will end
up even saving my very life - not a bad deal for just $14 bucks!
read it from cover to cover - like all things pertaining to RV living, it
was packed with so much incredible information I just read straight
through not even trying to absorb it all the first time - I will go back
again and take careful notes, and of course keep it as a valuable
reference in my travels. Ted

Although we are 'old hands' at fulltiming, we learn something new every time we open the book.
Rodney Pickles - Campground neighbour
An excellent reference guide for all types and sizes of RV's.

I have just purchased your book 'RV Living in the 21st Century' and find it so interesting and informative. My husband and I are planning on buying a fifth wheel when he retires (hopefully this year) and are thinking about becoming full timers.
Your book has just bumped up our enthusiasm about 100 points (and it was pretty high to begin with)!
Dear Peggi & John August 2006
Just to say a thank you for all the useful information in your book ' RV Living in the 21st Century'.
We retired earlier this year and ordered the book way back in January as a guide to planning a twelve month trip to the south west US which begins in a couple of weeks. From the book we have learnt what sort of RV we want, found many links from your website and generally have obtained the tons of information that we need to help us plan this big trip. Your enthusiasm gave us the impetus we needed and although it has been very hard work, but we are renting out our houses and going for it in a serious way.
The time is now near and we fly to Houston on sept 5, will join Escapees and Good Sam, will buy a used wheel and truck and then be on our way !
If we bump into you along the way we'll say Hello but thanks again for the encouragement and information in your book.
Regards Pam and Sue
Since 1997 Spirit of the Open Road was a complete resource guide packed with information, advice and tips applicable to all RVing situations. Spirit's easy-to-read format and the humorous writing style made it one of the most valuable additions to any travel RV reference and "how-to" library.
Spring 2004, RV Living in the 21st Century, the sequel to Spirit, has emerged in the same easy to read format and humorous style. It has all the great timeless info of Spirit plus 7-years of new ideas.
Readers are raving at this new publication that offers an in-depth look at the camping lifestyle. RV Living in the 21st Century blends the valuable information of her best seller Spirit of the Open Road (published in 1997) with new technology, regulations and hurdles facing RVers in the 21st Century. Like her first, this book truly answers questions that ALL RVers will ask at some point during their on-the-road adventure.
As a professional RV Lifestyle Consultant, Peggi works from her RV-based office and has endured frustrating moments when telephone and Internet access is, at best, sporadic and, at worse, non -existent. In the pages of her newest book RV Living in the 21st Century, Peggi offers solutions to connection problems as well as living tips needed to enhance this super lifestyle. Anyone considering joining the millions of Canadian and Americans who enjoy the freedom of life on the move NEED a copy of this book in their unit.
The creative front cover features the outstanding mural on the back of the McDonald’s motorhome - it entices the reader to open the book to learn more. An extensive list of topics and sub-titles replaces normal chapter headings - the comprehensive index adds to the ease of searching for an answer. Photos explaining RV life- lessons and some of the McDonald’s favourite destinations add an inviting touch to this publication.
The indispensable information contained within the book is a teaching tool for new RVers but it is also beneficial for established RVers and for International Caravaners who dream about visiting Canada or the U.S. This is definitely a “don’t leave home without it” must for all RVers!
John and I were young retirees from the Canadian Military – Peggi (age 44) from the Air Force and John (age 48) from the Navy – with a combined total of over 59 years of service. Since we both had moved extensively during our careers, choosing a retirement life of travel seemed exciting and inevitable – our adequate pensions would assist with living costs. Selling the house plus many of our possessions and buying a motorhome (even though we knew little about it) to explore North America seemed a natural transition. As newlyweds of only four years, we felt the world was our oyster – for close to two decades we have been enjoying this outstanding lifestyle.
My first book and a best seller Spirit of the Open Road, the Essential Guide for Canadian RVers was launched eleven years after we began this adventure. Now seven years later I share my comments in my newest ‘how-to’ guide, RV Living in the 21st Century, the Essential Reference Guide for ALL RVers – this publication addresses concerns of RVers touring North Americans- especially Canadians and Americans
Peggi and John were as green as possible when they bought their first motorhome in 1985. Neither had even camped previously, other than the occasional military field exercise where accommodations were giant tents. When they retired from the Canadian Military there were very few books about RVing available to explain what to expect – none addressed the Canadian side of things. With luck shortly after purchasing their first ‘Kruisin Kastle’ they parked next to Jack and Eunice, seasoned RVers from Florida. This twosome literally took the McDonald’s by the hand to explain many ins and outs.
Over the years as Peggi’s writing evolved, her stories were published in numerous columns for a wide selection of RV and senior’s publications, she writes as a similar helpful neighbour. In Spirit she relayed stories about their great experiences as well as those not so pleasant. She added even more complex situations in her new book, RV Living in the 21st Century; launch date – 20 May 2004. Her amusing tales will keep you spellbound for hours. All aspects are addressed - many include money-saving or safety-related life lessons that the McDonald’s learned along the way.
