My Cool Campervan celebrates a new wave of interest in modern-retro campervans. Join Jane Field-Lewis and Chris Haddon as they set off on a 3500-mile trip to locate campervans and proud owners, sharing their memories of family holidays under candy-striped pop-top roofs and of sunny days and simple pleasures. Delve into a world of road-tripping as Jane and Chris introduce us to a succession of distinctive campervans, memorable locations and classic models, at times beautifully restored, and at others well-loved and well-used.My Cool Campervan reveals a world beyond the stereotype, of vintage vans from another era, forgotten rarities and beautifully restored mass-produced models.Chapters include:Old Retro: In the 1970s and 80s as the motor industry turned its sights towards the global market, campervan designs began to change.Simple Life: Exploring functional campervans where styling doesn't overwhelm function and wherevans are so well designed in the first place, there's nothing more to add than the journey. Weird and Wonderful: From a converted French fire truck, to an 'extension' to a regular saloon car, these campers are customised, unusual and have been created to provide space.American Beauties: The large American Recreational Vehicles, or RVs, fulfill just about everyone's expectations of a comfortable life on the road. The enduring appeal of the RV lies in its iconic design and long association with the romantic notion of the great road journey.Classics: Some vehicle designs last longer than others. The VW T2 campervan is, without doubt, the front runner.New Retro: Reflecting owners' unique styles and interest, the vehicles here function as an artist's workroom or as a photographer's studio; these are not only places to camp out or chill out, they are happy extensions of creative lives.
