Book Recommendation: "Winnebago Nation"

I enjoyed reading Winnebago Nation: The RV in American Culture, by James B. Twitchell. I was most interesting in the history of the rv and the author's suggestions for why some people respect the rv lifestyle and others poke fun of or disdain it. He tells stories of his travels and encounters at various rv sites and rallies. It's not really about trailers and rv's, but the people who travel and live in them. It's a short book and I bought my used copy for under $10.

Yes, this is a good book.

I ordered it from Kindle and found his analyses to be interesting, as far as they went. The book is certainly worth reading for people who are interested in looking at anthropology of the RV community.
