About the Author

Motoring journalist Rob Hawkins bought a VW Bay Window in 2010 and quickly turned it into a camper van for his family, enabling them to visit countries including France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. The work he completed on his van has helped him write his first book, Fitting a Camper Van Interior (Crowood), and spurred him onto writing this second practical book on modifications.
