THE BOOK

During my build I constantly lamented the fact that there was a distinct shortage of reliable points of reference for anyone embarking on a self-build overland camper project. It seemed to me that a build-your-own-overlander style manual specific to larger vans and trucks was something that was most definitely missing: so I wrote one.

Based on my involvement with my own and subsequent builds, and in consultation with others who have successfully circumnavigated the globe - plus still more who have built everything from highly successful pivoting subframes to entire travel-proven trucks - the book consolidates some very valuable (and sometimes very elusive) knowledge and expertise.

Packed with images and illustrations, as well as comprehensive text, it’s my genuine hope that it will be a massive help to anyone taking on a self-build project; not least because it should help save a substantial amount of time and cash. It's not so long ago that there was very little reliable information around. These days that's not necessarily true: but teasing it out from an internet worryingly awash with unreliable information is a whole different problem. Just saying...
