Description


Whether you're still dreaming about the perfect camper or looking for practical information, Camper Rehab is your top to bottom guide to getting any camper trailer road ready.

From Airstreams and Apaches to Shastas and Winnebagos, classic campers have an undeniable appeal! But how do you know which one will work for you? Or if the one you have your eye on is a good deal or a money pit? Before you get too far down the road, picturing it bouncing along behind the family car, arm yourself with the information you need for all things camper.

Campers are not quite homes or cars. They have their own unique systems and demands that make fixing and upgrading a challenge. Even if you are fluent in DIY, campers might seem like a foreign language. Consider Camper Rehab your Rosetta Stone:
  • Covers camper options: Whether you're considering a fifth-wheel, teardrop, pop-up, or other style of camper trailer, this book runs through all the popular choices.
  • Buying guide: Camper Rehab walks you through the process of evaluating a potential purchase, identifying which issues are fixable and which are deal-breakers, as well as how to spot hidden problems.
  • How-to tutorials: From basic troubleshooting to electrical and plumbing projects, replacing interior surfaces, and clever decorating ideas, there's not shortage of how-to information.
  • Special considerations: How do you work with painted aluminum siding? What's the best way to re-caulk camper seals and seams? How can you re-align a camper door? Even those handy with automotive DIY are sure to learn a thing or two!
  • Visually driven: You'll find detailed illustrations as well as extensive color photography to help you get your travel trailer into shape for your next big—or little—adventure.
Written by accomplished DIY author Chris Peterson, whose light and approachable tone is coupled with the hardworking DIY information you need, Camper Rehab is a must-have for anyone with a camper—or seriously considering one!
