If you are contemplating an RV lifestyle, this course provides a comprehensive guide to the pitfalls and pleasures of being on the road. It covers New Zealand camping and freedom camping options and rules, how to choose an RV that suits you, and the do's and don'ts of RVing. It also introduces up-to-date technology and aspects of the operations of batteries, waste water, solar panels, TV and communications, heating and gas.
For those who do not have sufficient knowledge, the dream of heading away in a motorhome or caravan can become a nightmare. Jill Malcolm and Bill Savidan have been RVing for 20 years and have learnt a few things along the way.
Jill is the former editor and a present columnist for Motorhomes, Caravans and Destinations magazine. Bill is an RV reviewer and technical writer for the same magazine. The couple co-authored the book The Great Kiwi Motorhome Guide.

We will take a lunch break between sessions so we suggest you bring a sandwich or packed lunch. Tea and coffee will be available in the staff room. The lunch break is a great opportunity to meet other members of the community who may share your interests so we encourage you to stay onsite if you can.
