Independent Reviews

Written in almost a conversational style: it is eminently readable and encouraging. Although it gives considerable detail of the work undertaken by the authors on their own used van and caravan, the approach and techniques are transferrable to any conversion.
Scottish Caravanner

An extraordinary tale of how [Matthew and Stuart Ball] with the help of their family took a van and the workings of an old caravan and created a camper van to be proud of – and all for less that £1000."
The Burton Mail (Weekender)

The book is well laid out, easy to read, and with plenty of pictures and diagrams outlining the step-by-step processes the brothers followed during the project. While not making it look a doddle, they clearly explain the complexities involved, most of which are achievable for anyone with some DIY ability and basic tools. As a read in itself this is an interesting book, and anyone seriously thinking about taking on such a project would be well advised to check it out.
