RV reference books give away



It's time for another give-away! I just received my order of new books from RVBookStore.com. They are the latest versions of Casino Camping by Jane Kenny and The RVer's Friend. Part of our extensive camping reference book library, we use these books a lot to find places to spend the night and/or dump stations.

If you can, I recommend that you buy the latest editions. The Kenny book has added dozens of additional casinos that allow overnight parking by RVs. There are many updates to the list of truck stops, as well.

However, the old books pictured above still contain a ton of useful information and I hate to just throw them away. (If you can't see the photo, the books being given away are the 2007 version of RVer's Friend and 2nd edition of Casino Camping.)

The topic is specialized enough that I know they will languish unused if I donate them to a charity like Goodwill or Salvation Army. So I am offering the two books FREE to one of our readers. I will pay for the shipping costs to any US address. Just enter a comment below, and if more than one person wants them, I'll do a random drawing for the winner. Don't enter your address in the comments. I would hate for someone to spam you based on something you write here!

Comments to win the books will remain open until noon on Saturday, April 25th, 2009.

  1. Hey Guys,

    Put me on the list for these, I primarily boon dock in National Forest so the older editions would be a great back up when we are moving from place to place.

  4. I have a question. Do you have to be a member of the Elks to camp at Elks Lodges? If not, how could I find out which ones allow overnight camping? I really enjoy reading your blog. Keep up the good work.

  6. @Anonymous: Yes, you need to be an Elk to stay at Elks lodges. However, becoming an Elk is pretty easy -- there are lodges all over the country, and there is even an Escapees BOF dedicated to Elks. Once you are an Elk, there is a set of four directories you can buy that list the lodges with overnight RV parking around the country.

  8. I would love these books. So far our impromptu overnights have been heavily stacked toward Flying J's, with a few Walmarts thrown in. And I need some inspiration--we haven't been out yet this spring and looks like we may not have a chance before July...at least I can dream!

  9. Would love to have the books, too. We often boondock too, but do it more by chance. It would be good to have a little guidance! We've enjoyed reading through your website and blog.

  13. Its pretty nice of you to freecycle your books. If you ever feel like throwing out your old Escapee's Days End or Coleman National Forest Directory, please keep us in mind ;).
