The Simple Life Guide To RV Living: The Road to Freedom and the Mobile Lifestyle Revolution by Gary Collins is the follow-up to the author's first DIY self-help guide Going off the Grid. Collins doesn't mince words in this straightforward manual for those looking to downsize and live freely, even if that freedom doesn't mean a 24/7 life on the road. With tips on how to transition to living with less space and less stuff, which ultimately means little to no debt (yes, really), and real life lessons that contribute toward a comprehensive assessment of the realities of living on the road (both good and bad), Collins provides readers with a practical approach to a nomadic lifestyle.
The simple life isn't so simple, as it turns out...not at first, at least. It's refreshing to be told Collins' story firsthand and understanding the undercurrent that eventually resulted in a complete change of life. He doesn't quibble in laying mistakes he's made out on the table (or in other places that may or may not involve human fecal matter and a sewage hose), and in doing so he gives the rest of us hope. It will take a moment or two to grow accustomed to his writing style, but it quickly becomes friendly and engaging. It reads like a series of blog posts: informative, oftentimes funny, and with a ring of familiarity toward the reader and the subject matter. The Simple Life Guide To RV Living is an excellent resource for people who are tired of the everyday grind of urban living, but frankly, I'd recommend it even to people who are thinking of buying an RV for the weekends.
