A weekend away in a stylish caravan provides the perfect antidote to 21st-century living and more and more people are now taking a look at caravans, breathing fresh 'retro' vibes into the humble caravan and campervan. Old style caravans and campervans also tap into the nostalgia/retro market and the desire for a simpler lifestyle. My Cool Caravan aims to inspire with both text and well-styled photography a new generation of caravan and campervan owners and provide an idiosyncratic sourcebook for the design conscious. The inspiration for the styling can come from many different sources – this book looks at 40 styled caravans of all vintages, from across the world, covering themes such as Country Cottage, Old Retro, Trailer Park Treasures, Silver Bullets and Recycled.
