This major revision contains information about taking a big RV on the Alaskan ferry system plus visiting some of the ports not accessible by road.
“RVing to Alaska” is the only book focusing on how you can make the trip to Alaska on your own by RV with just a smidgen of travel guide tossed in. This book is not about going with a caravan. You can do this on your own.
Going to Alaska by RV is different than any other trip. Since you will drive, there is specific RV-related information relevant to both Canada and Alaska. This is information that, unless you have taken an RV to Alaska previously, will likely be new and different.
The majority of information in “RVing to Alaska” is about the differences between RVing in the Lower 48, Northern Canada, and Alaska. These geographic areas have different laws, traditions, and each is unique. You will learn about driving over frost heaves, road conditions, routes, emergency road service, where to go, visitor centers, pets, wildfires, border crossings, packing extra stuff, campgrounds, loonies and toonies, boondocking sites, wildlife, ferries, historic mile markers, and moose droppings to name a few.
This may be the only current book devoted to how to plan and make the trip to Alaska by RV. Check my Alaskan blog (click the tab above) for additional information about driving through Canada. There numerous old books written by one-time travelers, plus campground books, and a bunch of travelogue-type books and videos on how great Alaska looks. Some are pretty good, some are old, and some a waste of money.
A few trips are perfect for RVs. All other modes of travel will have certain limitations. Alaska is a long trip but a great one. I believe it is the best destination for RVers. Try it.
We did it three times—three full summers. It was great! You can, too. It was wonderful. Can’t wait to go back.
“RVing to Alaska” is the only book focusing on “how” to make this great trip. Regular Price: $27.95. Website Special: $24.95 plus s/h
