About the author (2012)

Matthew Ball has always had a keen interest in building things. At the age of 10 he was designing things such as an infinitely variable bike sprocket (that never worked), and a pedal hovercraft (that did). Not content with these, he later came across a copy of Ron Champion's 'Build your own sports car for as little as 250,' and built his own sports car for 3000. His interest in moving objects and machines led him to gain a degree in mechanical engineering, a useful qualification when building the first 1k camper.

Stuart Ball is 'Mr DIY' – so much so that he calls B&Q his second home. He is qualified in many areas – furniture making, wood turning, upholstery, and computer aided design, to name just a few – and is the proud owner of more power tools than most building companies. Stuart has undertaken many projects, most recently helping build a camper van with his older brother, Robert, a process through which he gained much experience of both how to, and how not to make and build the 1k camper – experience and knowledge that will make it so much simpler for you.
