I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of my read and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone with an interest in VW Campervans and all things retro. --VW Campervan Blog, September 2011
Campervans have a strong place in the affections of their owners, as these excerpts from new book 'My Cool Campervan' prove... --The Independent, 28 May 2011
There are many variations of the VW camper van, not least because until 2005 Volkswagen never made a camper itself, but produced vans for transporting people and goods which others converted with the addition of caravan-style living accommodation. And it was not just VWs which received such attention, as My Cool Campervan shows in a collection of photo essays. Some of the vintage camper vans portrayed are remarkable, and in many cases unique. A 1967 camper built on a Vanden Plas Princess chassis by J.H. Jennings, a firm of coachbuilders, is, as the book points out somewhat regal with polished wood and turquoise furnishings. Its present owners have hung horse brasses as an additional touch. --The Economist, June 2011

Very inspiring in everyway, fab original and unique interiors, beautifully photographed and written with a diverse choice of campervans featured inside and out, as well as the history and reading about the owners.
This book is like going on a wild expansive trip and made me feel like selling my house, throwing in the towel and getting on the road in a cool campervan.
This is a great follow up to 'my cool caravan', I didnt think it would be possible to top that one, but for freshness and originality it sits perfectly side by side.
There are some great vehicles in here; the obvious VW versions, splitty's, T2 bays, and the T25, as well as Bedford's, Transits and some really strange car conversions including a 2CV!
I though it could have done with a little more text, as it has a profile of the owner, and a profile of the vehicles, but no technical details. Four stars for the photo's and three for the text.
I loved the owners stories of how they acquired the campers.
the book only lost one star as i would have liked more photos of each camper but then i'm greedy :)
