Best cars for car camping (microcamper conversion)

VW Caddy (Maxi) Camper
(top pick for size)

One of the biggest – small cars, best suited for car camping conversions. Find all about that here – dimensions, review, images, gear, useful links.

VW Sharan Camper
(top pick for size+comfort)

Spacious and great comfort. Choose the Sharan/Alhambra if you plan long drives and want comfort.

How do we rate the cars?

Aside from rating the car’s overall practicality from a camping point of view (storage, size) and driving perspective (comfort, consumption), we also use our car camping criteria (price, boot size, reversibility).

These might come in handy...
