    I just learned that John died recently. He was well known for his Motorhome and Caravan reports on the Satellite Motorhome show amongst other things. He will be much missed for his clear and interesting presentations.

    Wasn't he the author of the Haynes Motor Motorcaravan Manual ? A veritable wealth of knowledge! Sad, RIP. Toby.

    Just couldn't press the 'like' button, one another instance where a 'thanks' button would be better. so thanks Rosalan for posting, had his Haynes manual even before I had a motorhome. None of us getting any younger

    I've only just found this out, so sad ... an absolute wealth of knowledge on many things, not just motorhomes, he will be sorely missed. Apparently he died on Saturday in a hospice and had been suffering from cancer.

    Caravan magazine is very sad to report the death of our long-time contributor, John Wickersham. JW was the ultimate caravanning guru, writing numerous manuals and guides (11 in total), and contributing to all of the UK's best caravanning publications. In a 'former life' John was a university sports lecturer, which might explain why he was always so impressively (and annoyingly!) fit, looking like a fifty-something when in fact he was 73!
    John used caravans and motorhomes to embrace his love of the great outdoors, particularly canoeing and climbing, and wrote with great accuracy and immense credibility about the technical side of our wonderful hobby.
    He leaves a wife Carole, four children and 10 grand-children. RIP.
