Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the complete guide to Volkswagen's Transporter, which has now surpassed even the Beetle in popularity, particularly in camper form. The author provides a brief history of the Transporter, through its first three incarnations, between 1950 and 1990, before describing each model in detail. Whole chapters are then dedicated to camper conversions and special models before moving on to discuss the practicalities of buying, owning, maintaining and modifying a Transporter today. This book is the perfect companion for beginners and long-term enthusiasts alike.
