VW Camper- The Inside Story
Price in GBP:
£23.50 INCL. VAT
This book documents and celebrates the many different camping conversions built on the Volkswagen Transporter and Microbus base across five decades. Until the advent of the new T5 generation in 2004, Volkswagen never made a factory-fitted camper, preferring to approve conversions carried out by firms such as Westfalia, Devon, Dormobile, Sundial and Danbury. However, many other different companies offered conversions on the VW base and the models produced by over forty different converters are described and pictured here. The book offers a comprehensive guide to the various models and interior layouts used by professional conversion companies that converted VW buses into campers. Included are archive photographs, period brochures and contemporary photographs to illustrate the detailed text - 470 colour photographs in total. The author, David Eccles, is a VW enthusiast of many years and editor of VW Camper & Commercial magazine.
