One reader on Amazon criticized this book as being too short, saying that it would have been OK as an article but not a book. It is true that the author has written this book in more of a blog format, but it is still a fun read. Susan decided to take her vacation in England by hiring a motorhome from Motorhome Freedom, a website about motorhomes with an emphasis on motorhome hire. For anybody who is considering a motorhome vacation, this is a good read and can alert you to some of the pitfalls you might come across.
