  • 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.

  • Nissan Townstar camper – Combi & Van

    Available in 1.3l petrol and 45kWh electric versions, both offering a very sizeable boot, this NV200 replacement looks like a very good camping car. There is a passenger version – Combi and a van, the latter offering even more room in the boot, but only two seats.

  • Nissan NV200 camper

    The Nissan NV200 is a very spacious car for its size. It is one of the tallest and offers a lot of headroom for a DIY camping conversion. Where it lacks behind is drive and interior comfort. It’s not a vehicle you would choose for long journeys – but of course, if you are not used to the comfort of higher class MPVs like a Sharan or your previous car, this won’t be a problem. It will get you there and you’ll be happily camping in its big boot, especially if you want to do your own DIY camper conversion or buy a camping box. For a simple conversion (not putting many storage options in) it doesn’t offer many built-in storage compartments in the back, you better come up with some good solutions yourself.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Dacia Dokker Camper (Van)

    Shorter but taller, not a bad option for a DIY camping conversion, but you’ll find better ones in our database.

  • 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.

  • Dacia Dokker Camper (Stepway, MPV)

    With quite a short boot and barn door (not tailgate), this isn’t bhe best option for a camping conversion – you’ll find better ones in our database.

    The most common approach seems to be a full professional camper conversion (rebuilt) or a Dokker specific camping box, which will give you the most sleeping length and storage space. As you’ll be throwing out all the seats anyway, check out the van version if you still like the Dokker, but want a much longer boot – without paying for the seats in the first place.
