Lewis, Haddon, and Walker's book was purchased largely on impulse based on the cover, since there weren't any posted reviews. I'm extremely pleased to say that the book has exceeded my expectations. Often trailer books neglect to pay proper attention to interiors. I'm happy to say that that is not the case with this book. Each trailer has at least one exterior photograph, and multiple interior shots, each showcasing the owner's aesthetic. The title promises "an inspirational guide to retro-style caravans," and that is certainly what it delivers. Those who own travel trailers will feel inspired to renovate them, and those who don't will feel compelled to find one.

If you are trying to choose just one book about Vintage Travel Trailers (out of the myriad masterpieces available) CHOOSE THIS ONE!

Writers are instructed to "show, don't tell." Jane and Chris not only show, they SHARE. These empathetic writers have constructed a guide to inspire even a casual onlooker of the grassroots, vintage travel trailer phenomenon sweeping both their own continent and "the states."

They totally "get" the passion of rediscovering a gentler lifestyle for those of us who have been overwhelmed by technology and the constant rush toward all things disposable, even relationships. Like the gypsy caravan of old - they let you travel your own world; like a good book - they allow you to fly on the wings of your imagination; and like loving arms - they provide you with a sanctuary tailored specifically for you, by you.

You will drool unabashedly as you enter caravan after caravan via the glorious photographs. Just as you think you've "got it" (the design inspiration for your own project), you enter yet another nostalgic tribute to simpler times, sending yourself reeling in a joyful and frenetic delirium of inspiration. These two writers should be nominated for a Nobel Prize in "writing to inspire."

I cannot thank Jane and Chris enough for putting together this masterpiece and making it available FOR ME. I have already given two copies away and told countless others to order it. My Cool Caravan is my new wish book.

No kidding--you absolutely will NOT be disappointed.

P.S- For every woman, "Sisters on the Fly" should be your next purchase!

This is a delightful collection of cool campers. These are caravans (or campers) mostly from Europe and Australia, but still gives the aspiring glamper some great inspiration. The photography is stunning and the vignettes add just enough personality that you can thumb through repeatedly and still find new ideas.

I love this Book. Great Pictures and information. A must have if you own and vintage trailer or thinking about getting an Old Trailer. My 1949 10' Trailer is retired in my yard and is part of my Yard Art. Everyone that sees her gets the BUG...........:O)

This is a way cool book from a different view, a British view of travel trailers or as they and the Continent call them "Caravans". Until looking at this book I didn't know that there were so many different makes of British and European caravans. Now I am on the hunt for a few of the "cuties" in the book. Nice book, well written, great photos.

I received this book in the mail very shortly after purchasing a 1960 Serro Scotty as my first re-do project. The ideas within the book are fabulous and inspiring. Although my particular style was not found in the book, there are many ideas worth "stealing!" This is a must-have for anyone interested in the vintage trailer movement.
