About RV Books

This Site

RV Books replaces Collyn Rivers' caravanandmotorhomebooks.com. The name was changed  to provide an easy, quick and simple way to provide proven, accurate and unbiased information about caravans, fifth-wheel caravans, motorhomes & camper trailers to a wider audience.

All Collyn's most popular articles have been totally updated, & some rewritten. More articles are progressively added. A few independent authors contribute blogs and articles.

Do see the just-added Blog - that defines who is responsible for caravan and motorhome faults.

Also in hand is the all-encompassing Australian RV Handbook - now due for publication in late 2019.

About to be published is Why Caravans Roll Over - and how to prevent it. For the very first time, this all-new mini-book explains why caravans sway, how to tell if yours is at risk - and how to reduce that risk. It will be available in late February or early March.

Please watch this space for more updated  details..

Our associated solar website too has been totally updated. It is now solarbooks.com    

Collyn Rivers

Collyn Rivers is an ex-RAF ground radar engineer and motor industry research engineer (Vauxhall/Bedford Research Centre).There, he designed and built most of the test equipment used by that centre. See http://vauxpedianet.uk2sitebui...and scroll down for the actual details. 

In 1971, Collyn founded the worldwide electronics publication Electronics Today International  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... as well as over twenty other publications in electronics, computing, music and telecommunications. He was technology editor of The Bulletin from 1982-1990 and wrote the Federal Government's Guide to Information Technology. Today, Collyn is a recognised leading global authority on caravan stability and RV suspension and RV electrical systems. 

In 1959 and 1960, Collyn and two colleagues travelled across Africa and the Sahara by truck. It was the very last time this was politically possible. Africa virtually exploded behind them on their way back to Europe.
