The Caravan & Motorhome BookThis is an all new replacement for the Campervan & Motorhome Book, first published in 2002. This is an excellent book for those considering buying or building their first caravan or motorhome. Its 42 chapters cover every conceivable aspect: including the fifth wheel caravans now seen as part caravan/part motorhome (and combining the best qualities of each).

Collyn Rivers’ all-new

Caravan & Motorhome Book

has all you will ever need to know (possibly more!) about RVs of all types.

This all-new book replaces the Caravan & Motorhome Book (first published in 2002). It covers every conceivable aspect of camper trailer, caravan and fifth wheel caravan, campervan and motor home usage. Like all of Collyn Rivers’ books it is technically sound yet written in plain English. 

Collyn Rivers

Collyn Rivers has put his encyclopaedic knowledge into print . . . there is virtually no issue he hasn’t covered. Certainly his engineering background is a superb credential but best of all Collyn has done it all himself.

Caravan World

Solar that Really Works!

Collyn is an accomplished engineer who knows how to design and build successful systems. It is refreshing to see practical advice written in plain language when there is so little solar information around. . . this is an essential text . . . you won’t find a better guide.

Caravan & Motorhome Book

Without doubt, this is the best book we have ever read . . . it will be treasured, and read on a regular basis.

Caravan & Motorhome Electrics

Collyn Rivers has done it again! – if you need to know anything about motorhome electrics, then this book is for you…

Collyn must be, without doubt, the foremost authority in Australia on this subject.

There is nothing worldwide quite like it. This book absolutely excels in its coverage of all things battery-related. We predict it to be a best-seller and the caravanners’ electrical bible – absolutely recommended.

 Whether you want to simply understand the pros and cons of going solar, or like some people forgo the (now more elusive) rebate and use advanced skills to install your own system, this book will answer more questions than any other. Highly recommended.
