About the Author

Colin is a family man with two children and wanted to 'upgrade' from camping to having a camper van. After being unable to find a commercial camper van that matched his requirements and budget, he spent 12 month's researching bespoke camper vans and how they are built. This research allowed the Grace family to decide to take the leap and commence a camper van conversion project. However 3 major questions still existed :- 1) How long would it take to do 2) How much would it cost. 3) How should the electrics be wired up. These questions were the spark for the idea, to document and photograph the whole conversion process and project. This then naturally progressed to writing the camper van conversion book. The book was initially sold as an Ebook. Colin decided to publish a paperback after requests from Ebook customers and the large amount of positive feedback on the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant guide 20 May 2011
A great read, Full of useful information provided in an easy-to-read format which leaves you raring to go rather than overloaded.

I've read numerous conversion guides and manuals but this has been the first one that had me reading cover to cover and thinking 'I can do that!' as its set out in such a straightforward way.

Overall - Very recommended, perhaps not the most technical guide but I'd rather seek that out online anyway!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Project for Retirement 19 July 2011
By MilesG
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would have given it five; but was looking for ideas on a Day Van project after creating one some years ago, which was some what uuuuummm basic, the wife hated it; but grew to like it and was sad to see it sold to her nephew. I think Colin Grace has done a good job, well written, with plenty of practical tips, ideas and contacts. It would have helped a lot with my first attempt!!
If I do get round to my Day van project, I will make sure it is close at hand, as you can dip in and out of the book.
One other thought, it makes a change in that the base vechile is not a VW or Merc.
