Trip Truck is back – this time providing a CAMPER CONVERSIONS WORKSHOP at AOS`17

Just back from 4,262 miles round the Baltic States, Steve Wigglesworth of Trip Truck fame (or should that be infamy???) will, we’re delighted to announce, be holding a series of workshops at AOS`17 (Adventure Overland Show 2017).

These free, advice-laden sessions will cover campervan conversions and overland travel in the UK, Ukraine, Iceland, France, Lapland, Ireland and of course, the Baltic region. Steve is also a keen twitcher (“an enthusiastic bird-watcher” according to Collins dictionary, so it’s not derogatory in the least), so by all means feel free to discuss the mating habits of nutcrackers, boobies or shags … no pun intended … not much!

Times of the workshops are:-

11:00 – 12:00  Sat & Sun
14:00 – 15:00  Sat & Sun

It’s also worth noting that Steve has also moved into the world of publishing, as last year (2016) Haynes launched a book entitled Build Your Own Overland Camper. Penned by Steve, the 196 page A4-sized hardback is fast becoming the ‘bible of truck conversions’ [ISBN 978 1 78521 076 1].

It even has a Foreword written by well respected fellow author and overland legend Steven Stewart. A leading light in the Silk Route Motorcaravan Network (as it happens, this group will also be at AOS`17), this alone gives Steve’s writing abilities credence and credibility.

Breathe in! This is typical ‘on-roading’ in Ireland.

A little exposed maybe, but this is where an expedition truck comes into its own. When the weather turns, spending the night in a roof tent is hardly a comforting thought.

So feel free to visit Steve’s workshops at AOS`17, otherwise the man’s going to feel very lonely – playing Solitaire just isn’t his style!
