Classic Dormobile Camper Vans: A Guide to the Camper Vans of Martin Walter and Dormobile


Classic Dormobile Camper Vans: A Guide to the Camper Vans of Martin Walter and Dormobile Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dormobile, a name inescapably linked with camper vans, grew out of a Folkestone coachbuilding company called Martin Walter's. In 1957, the first really affordable camper van, the Dormobile, was introduced. It was a great success and within a couple of years, over 10,000 had been sold. The factory produced camper vans in such huge numbers throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s that they were by far the leading producer of motorcaravans within the UK. The pop-up, candy-striped roofs became a common sight at campsites and on beaches all over Britain and abroad. Dormobile used a variety of base vehicles but perhaps the best known are the Bedford CA Romany, the Volkswagen split and bay vans and the Land Rover, all instantly recognizable with their pop-up roofs. The company also made a series of coach-built models including the Debonair and Newlander on Bedford and Toyota chassis.

About the Author

Martin Watts has been involved with motorcaravans for forty years. In 1991, he formed the highly respected Classic Camper Club to cater for owners of older motorcaravans. This owners' club still exists today, and the author now acts as its historian and journal editor. Martin is regarded as one of the leading motorcaravan historians in the UK and writes a regular column for MMM [Motorcaravan, Motorhome Monthly]. His previous book for Crowood, Classic Camper Vans - The Inside Story was very warmly received on its release in 2007. He lives in Worcestershire, England.
