    XBUS camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢210Width ↔130Height ↕140, 85

    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.

    Toyota FJ Cruiser camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢142Width ↔109Height ↕98

    The Toyota FJ Cruiser is a mid-size SUV that pays homage to the original FJ40 and it is well-rated for off-road driving and people like its distinctive looks and the rear doors that open towards the back. It also drew criticism for having significant blindspots due to its design, smaller-than-average load capacity, and rear seats that were cramped and difficult to access. Its boot is not very long and sleeping inside is doable (mostly for one person), if you don’t mind having your legs bent and can lie diagonally across the boot. Max possible length, with a DIY camping conversion and front seats pushed forward as much as possible is 188cm/76”.

    It has a retro style and a strong off-road capability. It is also a reliable vehicle, with high ratings from J.D. Power and Associates and RepairPal12. The FJ Cruiser has a 4.0-liter V6 engine that delivers 260 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. It has a fuel consumption of 17 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway1. The FJ Cruiser can be a good choice for camping, as it has a spacious cabin and a single wing boot door that opens to the side. It can fit up to five people, but the rear seats are cramped and difficult to access. The boot space is not very long, but it can accommodate some camping gear. The FJ Cruiser also has some features that can enhance the camping experience, such as a rearview camera, a compass, an inclinometer, and a roof rack3. The FJ Cruiser is a unique and rugged SUV that can handle any terrain and provide a comfortable ride.

    Peugeot 3008 Camper – boot size

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢175Width ↔99Height ↕75

    The 3008 is a comfortable car that’s good to drive, its boot is on the shorter end of the spectrum, but still good 175cm. With front seats pushed forward or sleeping with the bottom tailgate open (and top closed), you can gain even more room. The boot height is 75cm, so don’t put a very thick mattress in if you want some headroom. Make sure you use the removable boot floor (double floor) for storage.

    Models until 2016 were classified as MPV, models since then are SUVs.
