The Author

Lindsay Porter is a top-selling motoring author who has written literally dozens of manuals and restoration guides on classic and modern cars. More than any of his books to date, this manual has been a real labour of love. Lindsay and his wife Shan have been keen VW Camper owners since they converted their VW Vanagon/Caravelle Syncro to a Leisuredrive Camper and started to produce this manual. Lindsay hopes the reader of this manual gains as much pleasure from reading and using it as he did from working with the great people at Leisuredrive, writing the book and living with his VW Camper.
