  • Fiat Doblò camper (High Roof)

    If you’re thinking Fiat Doblo for camping, then think of the Maxi XL High Roof version. It is the tallest MPV out there – overtakes the leading VW Caddy by a whopping 25cm, giving you much more headroom or storage space (actually both!).

    It’s about 8cm shorter than the Caddy, but still one of the longest cars out there with 217cm boot length. The rear seats can be folded (backrests) or lifted up & tilted forward, or easily removed – even more flexibility (see how in this video).

    Combined with good consumption, the Fiat Doblo Maxi High Roof makes an amazing camping car.

  • XBUS camper

    The Xbus brings a new take on a small camper bus/people carrier. Its main competitor is the VW ID Buzz, albeit the Xbus leads with its modular base and configurable components. It is a very promising concept that has gained over 1.5 million EUR in crowdfunding in 2021 and I’m sure will lead the way of electric camper vans in years to come.

    The Xbus is not for everyone – it is being developed with environmental and economic credentials as the brands’ main priority, therefore some compromises in terms of how many people it can carry or top speed need to be made. But I am sure it will find its place in many people’s hearts. I am definitely looking forward to it! The company behind the XBUS (ElectricBrands) has hired 13 new employees in 2022 with the work on Xbus underway, albeit with possible delays because of the unprovoked attack on Ukraine by Russia. BTW, the Xbus Camper is the most sought-after variant of the Xbus (in the private sector). Campers know what’s good, especially nimble campers! ;) That’s also the reason, why the company has decided to build the camper as their next test vehicle that they will take to shows and exhibitions to collect feedback. Real images (not mockups) to follow soon. Watch this space!

    I have estimated the interior dimensions, but as the vehicle is a camper by design, it can’t be compared fairly to other MPVs. I am giving it a 4.5/5 rating for now, as it’s looking to be a great camper, but will adjust this accordingly as more information surfaces.

  • Hyundai Staria camper

    Hyundai Staria is the Multivan of MPVs – swivel seats with configurable position, it comes in either a 6 or 9 seat version. A big car for sure – the seats can be folded down giving you almost 2.5m legroom. The irony is though that you are paying a premium for those luxury seats, only to then hide them under a mattress. Albeit you could sleep on those reclining middle seats for a few nights too. Or go for the van (cargo) model – it’s a bit longer and taller + you can make it your own + it’s cheaper. It’s labelled as an MPV, but really, it’s just like a Multivan, not like a Caddy. We may see these categories blend somehow in the future…

  • Caddy Maxi Camper (Life)

    The VW Caddy Maxi Life is one of the biggest MPVs out there and probably the best small camper van option out there. If boot size is your primary criteria – you can’t go wrong with a Caddy. The car drives good too. Where it lacks a bit is comfort – it takes after its van origins and offers a more basic interior. But it makes up for it in storage – it really has a lot of compartments all over the place. It’s not the best car to take off the road completely – but you can take it down a good enough mud road without any big problems. A very good car camping / microcamping conversion candidate, unless you are planning to drive through forests and very much offroad – or you prefer a higher class interior comfort.

  • Seat Alhambra Camper

    It’s basically a Sharan with the same measurements and comfort level. This also means that Seat Alhambra is a very good car for camping – if you are looking for a good level of comfort during long journeys and one of the biggest boots for sleeping at the same time.

    NimbleCamper rating: 3.9/5

  • VW Sharan camper

    The VW Sharan strikes a good balance between size and comfort. Actually, it’s one of the biggest MPV’s out there. If boot size is your primary criteria – you can’t go wrong with a Sharan. The car drives nicely too and offers good comfort in the front for the driver and passenger. It’s not the best car to take off the road completely – but you can take it down a good enough mud road without any big problems. A very good car camping / microcamping conversion candidate, unless you are planning to drive through forests and very much offroad.

  • Peugeot Partner Camper (Long – L2)

    Long + tall, cheap and good for DIY custom camper builds. It’s the same size and engine as Berlingo – both are quite popular as DIY camper cars, mainly because of their low entry price. I would recommend the L2 – Long version. The other versions are the same, just shorter – which will limit your sleeping area at the back. The newer versions come with the same nifty tailgate window and roof window as the Berlingo.

  • Rifter camper (Long)

  • Nissan Townstar camper – Combi & Van

  • Opel (Vauxhall) Combo Life XL Camper

    The Opel/Vauxhall Combo is basically a Berlingo with different trim. Citroen Berlingo is one of the most often converted cars for camping, so you could take the Combo too.

    The Combo (and its similar cousins – Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Partner, Renault Kangoo) is a good car for car camping, but not as good for general driving & comfort during long journeys. It’s not the longest MPV out there (although it’s one of the widest) but offers very good mileage and low maintenance costs. It’s also very well priced – there are plenty of used van or MPV versions to be found. It’s best suited to fill the role of your second car that you can rebuild for camping. If you want it as your main car, it’s good if your budget is low, but otherwise, you’re better off with one of the more comfy and reliable or bigger MPV in our DB.

  • Chrysler Grand Voyager Camper

    The Grand Voyager is big and comfy. At places too comfy – a fold-up TV isn’t really necessary for camping, so although it’s a big car, you’ll be paying for unnecessary luxuries. These also add unnecessary weight, increasing its consumption. It’s, therefore, more expensive to run and harder to drive. These luxuries are also not spent wisely – again, the drive is according to most reviews online, just OK. The fold-up TV doesn’t make a long trip much better – better sound insulation could do.

  • Kia Carnival Camper (Sedona)

    A big and comfy car that eats a lot. Kia Carnival is for you if you are looking for lots of space and a comfortable ride and don’t mind paying for twice the typical MPV consumption. New models tend to cost a lot more than your typical MPV, but it should be possible to find a used one for a good price.

  • Ford Transit Connect camper

    A panel van that feels and drives better than a van. It has very good safety scores and is well-rated across other websites. It offers a good-sized cargo area, about average for a panel van. Not the biggest, but it makes up for it with higher comfort when driving and in the cabin.

    The barn doors on most models are a downside, but they have a small plus point – you can open them all the way towards the front, by the sides of the car so that they won’t get in your way. You just won’t have a roof like you would with a tailgate.

  • Mercedes R350 Camper

    A very big car, albeit quite luxurious and hence a higher price, but if you can find it used, you’ll find plenty of space for sleeping at the back, including the dog and your bags. This model was discontinued in 2017 unfortunately, but used ones are still to be found.

  • Ford S-Max Camper

    A well-sized car (although at the lower end of other MPVs) with a very high safety rating and comfort level. If you prefer size over comfort, have a look at Caddy Maxi or Fiat Doblo XL. If you prefer comfort over size, Ford S-Max might be a good choice – but so could be the bigger Sharan, which is also quite comfortable. Also have a look at Ford Galaxy if you are looking for a Ford that is a bit bigger and cheaper, with less attention to comfort compared to the S-MAX.

  • Ford Tourneo Connect camper (Grand)

    The Tourneo is an even more comfortable version of the already comfortable panel van Transit Connect. You get a higher trim standard and drive comfort with a big boot for all your camping needs. When the seats are folded down, the boot height is 95cm, which isn’t much for an MPV, but good enough. Go for the Grand version of course – you’ll get a 40cm longer boot – that’s a lot. It drives well, but it also eats a bit more than other MPVs though.

    The barn doors on most models are a downside, but they have a small plus point – you can open them all the way towards the front, by the sides of the car so that they won’t get in your way. You just won’t have a roof like you would with a tailgate.

  • Peugeot 5008 Camper

    A bigger version of the 3008, the 5008 is a 7-seater with ~17mm more ground clearance and 11cm longer boot.

    There are two versions – a newer SUV, which is also more luxurious and bigger and an older MPV version (until 2016). The measurements here are for the SUV – the newer version. The average used price is for the older model, the newer model is around 19,000 GBP.

  • Toyota Proace City Camper (LWB)

    The Proace City comes from the Berlingo family and is therefore on par with others like the Opel Combo Peugeot Partner or Peugeot Rifter – they are basically the same car. This means it’s an ok car for camping – as it offers enough room in the back, given its van roots, but it’s not the most comfortable to drive… given its van roots :). There are bigger MPVs out there in the same price range, f.e. the Fiat Doblo, Nissan NV200, Caddy Maxi Life. Or even bigger & more comfortable cars like the Sharan.

  • VW Caddy Camper (Life, short)

    A shorter version of the Caddy – I don’t see why you’d go for short if there’s a longer version with everything else being the same :). But perhaps you want a more compact car – the key benefit of the shorter Caddy is its manoeuvrability – it is easier to park and drive in cities. It is 47cm shorter and 13cm lower than the Caddy Maxi Life.

  • VW ID Buzz camper

    The king of camper vans is getting an electric upgrade. Actually, not just electric – the interior is looking very cosy and spacious too, as less room is needed for an engine + all its moving parts – which are now all underneath. The multifunctional rear seats + table and swivel front seats make it a very versatile car to live in. And we do like a lot of space in our campers, don’t we!
    The double floor + rear seats folding flat to create a surface for a mattress look very handy – compared to a Multivan, where you have to level the seats with something.

  • Dacia Jogger camper

    This successor of Dacia Lodgy seems to be boasting everything you need from a good car for camping – SUV features to take it off-road, MPV size with 7-seats + a long and spacious boot at a very affordable price. Could this be the next best everyday camping car?

    Users submitted boot length on camping forums is 200cm with the front seat pushed forward, so the standard boot length is around 180cm. I have used an average of those (190cm) for the NimbleCamper rating. Makes sense as the overall car length is about 30cm shorter compared to a Sharan (with a 208cm boot length). One disadvantage seems to be that the last row of seats sticks out quite high even if the seats are folded – but you can easily take them out, see here

    According to user feedback, the boot height of the Jogger is 69cm (with seats folded down) – not that tall!

    Apparently, it will be the cheapest 7-seater MPV on the market at around €15,000 (just under £13,000) new. And if that’s not enough, it’s getting great reviews overall. The biggest downside seems to be the cheap plastic feel on the inside.

    Although it has received a very low NCAP safety rating, most reviews rate it high – especially given the price. You will get a new car with loads of space, 7 seats as standard (or a massive boot if taken out) and a light and agile MPV, maybe the lightest in it’s class.

If you want a smaller (and a bit cheaper) car with VW interior & engine standards, good safety rating and good consumption that you can still sleep in, the Touran might just be it. If you don’t mind the interior as much, you’re better off looking at Berlingo, Caddy or similar cars.
