You’re not quite sure how it happened, but there’s a travel trailer sitting in your driveway and a wife wondering what the heck you were thinking. “I’ll fix it up,” you promise. “It’ll be fun,” you insist. And so you attack your new project, thinking, “How hard can this be?” But a travel trailer, as you’ll soon discover, is a different animal. Not car, not house, but an amalgam that presents problems that stump even the most seasoned DIY-er. Which is why you’ll need this book, written by home improvement expert Chris Peterson, whose guidance is a helluva lot better than unsolicited advice from the neighbor who’s never picked up a wrench. Whether you’ve got a fifth wheel or teardrop, “Camper Rehab” will help you troubleshoot electrical problems, unplug the plumbing, seal leaks, replace the torn linoleum and spruce things up so even your teenagers will think your camper’s cool. And if you haven’t pulled the trigger on that trailer you’re eyeing on Craigslist just yet, this book helps you spot hidden problems and distinguish fixable issues from deal (and relationship) breakers.
