Description

Following BBC2's "One Man and his Campervan", Martin Dorey has compiled The Camper Van Bible. This would be a great gift for any campervanning enthusiast, with beautiful photographs, recipes, interesting anecdotes and handy hints. Although marketed as a "glovebox bible", you'll have a task fitting it into the average glovebox!

In this book Dorey explains his passion for Campervans, the "universal symbol for the open road, free spiritedness, love, peace and harmony". Although at times the information can be a little vague, he is an experienced voice and provides useful advice about getting started as a campervanner and life on the road.
