A Guide to Buying, Repairing, and Upgrading Your Travel Trailer

Camper Rehab is your top to bottom guide to getting any camper trailer ready to hit the road in a style to match your dreams. Old campers have an appeal that reaches back in time and can send your imagination soaring. Let's face it: they are cool. Who hasn't seen one parked on a boulevard with a "for sale" sign and pictured it bouncing along behind the family car, ready for adventure and fun?

Even if you have plenty of DIY experience, a camper speaks a foreign language. Consider Camper Rehab your Rosetta Stone for the language of Shasta, Dutchmen, or Airstream. This book is a top-to-bottom guide to getting a fifth-wheel, teardrop, or other camper trailer ready for the road and beyond. From basic troubleshooting to electrical and plumbing projects, replacing interior surfaces, and clever (sometimes "retro") decorating ideas, this book uses detailed illustrations, color photography, and a wealth of step-by-step, how-to information to get help you get your travel trailer into shape for your next big--or little--adventure. And in case you haven't pulled the trigger on that trailer you're eying on Craigslist just yet, Camper Rehab also walks you through the process of evaluating a potential purchase, identifying which issues are fixable and which are dealbreakers, as well as how to spot hidden problems. 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 any camper owner or dreamer.
