Book Description

15 Feb 2010
A weekend away in a stylish caravan provides the perfect antidote to 21st-century living and more and more people are now taking a look at caravans, breathing fresh 'retro' vibes into the humble caravan and campervan. Old style caravans and campervans also tap into the nostalgia/retro market and the desire for a simpler lifestyle. My Cool Caravan aims to inspire with both text and well-styled photography a new generation of caravan and campervan owners and provide an idiosyncratic sourcebook for the design conscious. The inspiration for the styling can come from many different sources - this book looks at 40 styled caravans of all vintages, from across the world, covering themes such as Country Cottage, Old Retro, Trailer Park Treasures, Silver Bullets and Recycled.

About the Author

Jane is a London-based stylist working in film and photography. She co-owns a 1970s retro--modern styled caravan -- a perfect little hideaway where it is easy to be creative. Chris Haddon is a multi-disciplinary designer with almost 20 years experience. He has a huge passion for all things retro and among his collection of vintage caravans is his studio which is a converted 1960s Airstream. He had for many years hankered after the perfect classic car to accompany his retro caravans. The journey that he took when looking for the car he now owns led him to admire and consider many various possibilities along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is absolutely fantastic! 24 Feb 2010
This is a brilliant book, really inspirational if you are thinking of glamming up your caravan! There are plenty of examples given, of great caravan renovations, with style notes and the stories behind them. I'd highly recommend this book, whether you have a vintage caravan (I haven't) or are just interested in the style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool Caravanning 22 Feb 2010
My Cool Caravan

This book is a fantastic insight into people who take particular pride & joy in their caravans & make it such a big part of their lives. Many diverse areas of caravanning are covered and not a single satelitte dish amongst them! I have 20 somethings in my office raving about the book. Hopefully My Cool Caravan will help breed a brand new generation of young caravanners who don't just want a home a way from home but want to enjoy the experience of owning a great piece of old history or history of the future & making caravanning fun and interesting again. If ever there was a reason to start carvanning 'My Cool Caravan' is it!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Cool Caravan 20 Feb 2010
A lovely- to- look- at book with great photography.A sort of mobile version of House and Garden. This is a guide to both the best of restyled interiors of mainstream older caravans,and some beautifully maintained classic and vintage vans . Some really inexpensive ways to have a unique, funky and charming caravan. These are not enormously expensive plastic boxes, but inspired and stylish.Definitely cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Cool Caravan 17 Feb 2010
A fabulous book, captures the spirit of caravanning perfectly!
It shows the diversity of the caravan movement, from the humble to the luxurious - caravanning caters for all.

Wonderfully inspiring stories of those who caravan - for pleasure, exploration, rest and recuperation or as a place of work.

The book is a must for all caravanners - and anyone wishing to try what is fast becoming a very cool way to discover the country!
Alastair- Spriteman.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Photography 15 Sep 2010
Funnily enough I had just bought a tiny toy caravan for a photo shoot and noticed this book in the window of a nearby shop. I must admit, being a photographer I was attracted by the great photograph, but my biggest disappointment was that the poor photographer was not even given a mention inside. This book would not be what it is without the great photos. The publishers should not make the same mistake next time!
