This post will help you determine which Dacia car is better for camping – the newest Jogger, the versatile Duster or older models Lodgy or Dokker. We will focus on the pros and cons related to camping (i.e. size, storage, and convertibility into a bed). We will therefore pay less attention to their engine, speed or driving experience comparisons.

This table highlights the key differences between all four cars.
The Jogger stands out with its low consumption and higher comfort rating – primarily because it is the newest car (only released in 2023). It also has one of the longest boots out of the four. Its low NCAP safety rating doesn’t mean it is not a safe car, but compared to other, higher-end cars, it doesn’t use all the latest safety technologies. But it does have all the essentials.
The Dokker has the tallest boot of them all, being a van-based model, but also the shortest one.
The Duster is the most versatile one – 4×4 (four-wheel drive), higher ground clearance, good length and height boot – kind of a hybrid of all the three other cars.
The Lodgy offers the longest boot with good height too and being the oldest model, also the lowest used price.

Car camping and microcamping allows me to keep traveling and exploring with a much greater level of freedom & privacy – to go anywhere and sleep anywhere. I didn’t have 30K to buy a VW Multivan, so found my way to the world of everyday car camping conversions. Here I share my experiences and what I learn.
