Product description


Converting a panel van into a camper is no easy task, some may take it for granted but when you see what's involved you need to be more than just an enthusiast. No doubt though, Lindsay's book does make the job easier. His pride and joy, the finished article adorns the front cover. Get reading and down to work! - Caravan Cruise Ireland

This book is a very comprehensive step-by-step guide to starting with a T5 van and finishing up with a Camper. It contains some 272 pages that are profusely illustrated in full colour together with captions relevant to the task being worked on. The book starts with a 'Safety First' chapter and there follows another 6 chapters that are all subdivided into sections with each covering, very thoroughly, certain aspects of the conversion. It covers just about everything in fine detail and should give the persons carrying out the conversion all the confidence needed to finish the task and be proud of what they have achieved. One chapter with many sections that caught my eye especially was the one-headed 'Extras and accessories', and within this a lot of very sound advice regarding wheels and tyres is given. If I was thinking of doing a conversion - which I am not - I think this is the book I would rely on to lead me gently through the not inconsiderable task taken on. - Review from the VW Owners Club GB, Spring 2008

Recently published by Veloce, this is a comprehensive hands-on guide to converting a T5 (2003-on) panel van to a Camper. With over 260 pages and more than 1500 illustrations and detailed instructions, it takes a very practical and hands-on approach to everything from planning and choosing fittings to building and fitting the interior furniture. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to convert their van to a Camper, or wishing to upgrade their existing conversion with additional features and accessories. --Review from Volkswagen Driver, February 2008

About the Author

Lindsay Porter is a top-selling motoring author and has written literally dozens of manuals on classic and modern cars. More than any of his books to date, this manual has been a real labour of love. Lindsay and his wife, Shan, have been keen VW Camper owners for many years ever since they converted their VW Vanagon/Caravelle Syncro to a Leisuredrive Camper and started to produce the popular predecessor to this manual. Lindsay hopes the reader of this manual gains as much pleasure from reading and using it as he did producing the book and living with his VW Camper.
