Rving To Alaska, 2Nd Edition
This 2nd Edition is a major revision to the original RVing to Alaska. While an excellent and popular book, it did not contain information about the Alaskan ferry system. How do you take a big RV on the ferries? We wanted to answer that question plus visit some of the ports not accessible by road.

“We have been to Alaska three times by RV and have been to 80% of Mr. Jones areas discussed in his book. We never took boats or flew to other islands as he did. We did take the Alaska Marine Highway Ferries from Haines to Bellingham, WA on our last to...”
just a smidgen of travel guide tossed in. This book is not about going with a caravan. You can do this on your own and don t need anyone with you.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 the articles at aboutrving 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 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 twice. It was great! You can, too. It was wonderful. Can t wait to go back.
