Description


Renowned automotive writer Pat Foster celebrates the simple joy of hitting the highway in a vintage camper, trailer, RV, or van in this illustrated examination of their hardware and cultural histories.

The look, the feel, and the sheer style of vintage campers and trailers are impossible to duplicate in sterile modern units. It’s little wonder more and more of us, from all walks and ages, are ditching the increasingly hectic modern life and rediscovering the simple freedom of small, uncluttered spaces and the wide-open road.

In Vintage Campers, Trailers & Teardrops, Foster breaks down the subject by camper categories, illustrating his knowledgeable text with evocative modern photography of restored and original-condition campers, as well as period photos and advertising art. Sidebars examine topics like:

  • Clever designs that make small living possible
  • The evolution of campers and gear over the ages
  • Tips for trailer living
  • First-person anecdotes from enthusiasts
  • And much more

Along the way, Foster covers all of the most popular camper and van brands, such as Winnebago, Airstream, Shasta, Spartan, Scamp, Volkswagen, and more.

Whether lived on the road, your driveway, or your armchair—your minimalist adventure starts here.
