Vantastic Kiwi Collections

By Don Jessen

Availability: In stock

The Kiwi retro caravan craze is in full bloom — clear from the ever-increasing number of vans parked up at idyllic holiday spots, vans spotted at car events around the country, the magazines and online chatter on the subject, and a general yearning among the population for the sort of carefree holidaying that caravanning offers.

Don Jessen profiles some of the country’s prettiest and most interesting vans, and gives a bit of history on what is an enduring and endearing hobby for many.

Foreword by Kevin Milne.
