The book is well-written, and, I did not see any major errors. All topics covered DO need to be considered, by prospective van people.
I would take issue with the estimated expense ($100-200) of adding an auxiliary (house) battery that will charge with the vehicle's alternator. A decent deep cycle or marine AGM battery will use up most of the estimated cash, and you still have to add charge controller and/or relay, cables, main fuse, distribution fusebox, wiring, and some 12v sockets, at minimum. I would double the given estimate.
The yellow, kayak-laden pop-top van on the book's cover seems too flashy for the topic. I think a more modest and typical van would be better suited.
I also want to point out she made mistakes in her own build, but she realized what they were as she went along and points them out clearly. I admire her for doing that. There is not just ONE way of doing things.
I think what impressed me the most was the author’s honesty in explaining how readers can avoid the mistakes she made when converting her own van. The book is well worth the cost.
