Old campers have an appeal that reaches back in time and can send your imagination soaring. Let's face it: they are cool. Who hasn't seen one parked on a boulevard with a "for sale" sign and pictured it bouncing along behind the family car, ready for adventure and fun? Unfortunately, campers are not quite homes, they are not quite cars, and they have their own unique systems and demands that make fixing and upgrading a challenge. Even if you have plenty of DIY experience, a camper speaks a foreign language. Consider Camper Rehab your Rosetta Stone for the language of Shasta, Dutchmen, or Airstream. This book is a top-to-bottom guide to getting a fifth-wheel, teardrop, or other camper trailer ready for the road and beyond.

And in case you haven't pulled the trigger on that trailer you're eying on Craigslist just yet, Camper Rehab also walks you through the process of evaluating a potential purchase, identifying which issues are fixable and which are dealbreakers, as well as how to spot hidden problems. Written by accomplished DIY author Chris Peterson, whose light and approachable tone is coupled with the hardworking DIY information you need, Camper Rehab is a must-have for any camper owner or dreamer.

A Celebration of a Moveable American Dream

Pubpsher: Chicago Review Press
The Camper Book will captivate all those who dream of waving good-bye to the rat race from the window of their own moveable home, be it a camper, RV, travel trailer, camper van, or tiny camper. Not just for placid retirees anymore, camper culture has sprung up among simplicity-seeking millennials, retro-loving "glampers," sports and movie stars, aging hippies, contract workers, "road-schoolers," and others. Award-winning journalist Dave Hoekstra hit the road in his own custom camper van, named Bluebird, to explore the history, culture, subcultures, and future of camper life. Traveling and talking his way through US campsites, RV parks, landmarks, and communities, Hoekstra draws out revealing stories from all walks of life—from Americans who are downsizing material goods while upsizing spiritual pursuits to RV enthusiasts such as Grammy-winning singer-songwriter John Prine and Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon. A modern-day Studs Terkel, Hoekstra provides a delightful mix of oral history, in-depth reporting, and practical information, while photographer Jon Sall's beautiful color photographs illuminate the unique people, places, and rigs that typify camper life.
Vintage camper trailers are a unique symbol of midcentury America that resonates with many people. This book introduces many of those people, along with the trailers they’ve lovingly maintained or restored. It includes hundreds of photographs of everything from fancy and comfortable trailers designed for glamping (glamorous camping), to trailers handed down through families across generations, and even entrepreneurs who have transformed their trailers into vending booths. Paul Lacitinola enjoys everything about vintage camper trailers, including rescuing, restoring, and rallying. In 2011, he began publishing the first U.S.-based magazine for collectors, restorers, and admirers of American-made camper trailers, Vintage Camper Trailers, which now has thousands of subscribers in more than a dozen different countries. He lives in Elverta, California.
