Even if you have plenty of DIY experience, a camper speaks a foreign language. Consider Camper Rehab your Rosetta Stone for the language of Shasta, Dutchmen, or Airstream. This book is a top-to-bottom guide to getting a fifth-wheel, teardrop, or other camper trailer ready for the road and beyond. From basic troubleshooting to electrical and plumbing projects, replacing interior surfaces, and clever (sometimes "retro") decorating ideas, this book uses detailed illustrations, color photography, and a wealth of step-by-step, how-to information to get help you get your travel trailer into shape for your next big--or little--adventure.

Leben aus der Botschaft des Kreuzes - was bedeutet das für uns heute? Klaus Berger und Clemens betrachten gemeinsam das wichtigste Symbol des christlichen Glaubens. Beide verbindet nicht nur eine langjährige Freundschaft, sondern auch der Wunsch, den gemeinsamen Glauben an das Kreuz und die Auferstehung in eine frische, neue Sprache zu übersetzen. Sie wählen ganz unterschiedliche Betrachtungsweisen und Zugänge und kommen doch zu dem selben Schluss: "Das Kreuz steht für die Wende, dass die Liebe stärker ist!"
