The Caravan & Motorhome Book is an all-new replacement the Campervan & 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.
It was initially conceived (over 50 years ago) during the author’s epic trans-Africa trip that included two Sahara crossings. It takes in experience gained during Collyn’s subsequent twelve return trips across the centre of Australia from Broome to the east coast and back (24 journeys – each of 7000 km plus) in his converted OKA ex-mining truck. He and his wife (Maarit) did three more (return) in their 4.2 litre Nissan Patrol and Tvan. The author’s caravanning experience includes towing a 40 year-old caravan from Helsinki (Finland) to 750 km north of the Arctic Circle.
The authenticity of Collyn River’s books are assisted by he originally being a motor industry applied research engineer. He later switched careers in mid-life to become a technical author and publisher (bio). His books now sell globally.
The Caravan & Motorhome Book’s 42 chapters include:
