Synopsis

VW Buses command a massive following - with Campers being the most popular of all.Complementing the author’s successful volume covering the first three generations of Volkswagen’s legendary Transporter, this book delves exclusively into the spin-off conversions based on the VW Panelvan, Kombi and Microbus that became known simply as VW Campers. From the original Westfalia Camping Box to the pioneering Pitt Moto-Caravan and Britain’s extremely popular Devon and Danbury models, the book also covers everything from the weird to the genuinely wonderful, including models produced exclusively for the US market. Making extensive use of original promotional material - ranging from lavish photography to quaint but charming home-spun images - here is a complete record, including layouts for the restorer, of older models and those interested in the luxury associated with the third generation Wedge. With a lively and entertaining text covering all aspects of the VW Camper story, this is both a unique reference book and a coffee-table extravaganza to be enjoyed over and over again. Packed with original marketing images, including unusual, discontinued models this book will fascinate any VW fanatic.

If you are one of the seemingly ever-growing band of VW fanatics out there, or a student of the classic camper van, then this book may well be worth a place in your Christmas stocking.

It's a bit like having a huge brochure library of your own, except more accessible and written to be informative. Flicking through is simply a delight ...
