  • Fiat Doblò camper boot size (Short, Long, XL, High Roof/Top)

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢217Width ↔126Height ↕150

    If you’re thinking Fiat Doblo for camping, then think of the Maxi XL LWB or also the High Roof version. The High Roof 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!). But it only comes with barn doors (why is a tailgate better?). If you want a tailgate, go for Fiat Doblo Maxi LWB.

    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.

  • Honda Odyssey camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢245Width ↔122Height ↕118

    Honda Odyssey is one of the biggest minivan (MPV-type) cars, rivalled only by the Kia Carnival (Sedona) or Toyota Sienna. You can sleep in it easily, and have a storage box in the boot without it getting in the way of sleeping, that’s how big it is :). Its 245cm (96.5in) long boot gives you 200cm (79in) of sleeping area and still leaves 45cm (17.7in) for storage – or your dog.

    Most camping conversions I’ve come across tend to throw everything out at the back to make the most of the space and build their own bed frames and storage. It is a good car for camping, if you can get over the higher price tag (starting at around $30,000).

    If you are looking for a minivan with a lot of storage space and seating flexibility, the Honda Odyssey is a good option for you. It can fit up to eight people in three rows of seats that are spacious and comfortable. You can also adjust the seats to suit your needs. The third row can be folded into the floor, and the second row can be slid, folded or taken out completely.

  • Hyundai Staria camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢242Width ↔125Height ↕136

    Hyundai Staria is the Multivan of MPVs – swivel seats with configurable positions, it comes in either a 6 or 9-seat version. It trumps the Multivan in consumption – not by a huge margin though.  A big car for sure – the seats can be folded down giving you almost 2.5m legroom. The irony is though (the same as with a Multivan) that you are paying a premium for those luxury seats, only to then hide them under a mattress (or you’ll have to remove them to get some storage space for your camping gear). 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…

    As this car spans two categories: MPVs and People Carriers – I’d rate it as follows: 

    • MPV rating: 4/5
    • People Carrier rating: 3.7/5

  • Kia Carnival Camper (Sedona)

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢244Width ↔120Height ↕122

    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 more on fuel. 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.

  • VW Caddy Maxi Camper boot size

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢225Width ↔117Height ↕126

    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. 

    In the UK, the Caddy Maxi Life is registered as a car (not a van), so can go at a higher speed limit than the equivalent van.

  • VW Sharan camper boot size

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢209Width ↔125Height ↕113

    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.

  • Chrysler Pacifica Camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢230Width ↔123Height ↕115

    The Chrysler Pacifica is in short a Chrysler Grand Voyager with better specs and trim. It offers a spacious and luxurious interior with plenty of storage options. It has the available Stow ‘n Go® Seating and Storage System, which allows you to fold the seats into the floor and create more room for cargo1It also has in-floor bins that provide extra space for your stuff when the seats are not stowed1. The Chrysler Pacifica is a great choice for anyone who needs versatility and comfort in their vehicle.

  • Peugeot Partner Camper (Long – L2)

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢217Width ↔125Height ↕113

    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)

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢223Width ↔119Height ↕112

    The Peugeot Rifter, from the Berlingo family (and Opel Combo or Toyota ProAce City are basically the same cars), is longer, more comfortable and scores higher in safety tests than Berlingo – which just about makes it one of the top contenders for a great camper!

  • Seat Alhambra Camper boot size

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢209Width ↔125Height ↕113

    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.


    (based on our Sharan review, as they are the same cars)

  • Toyota Sienna Camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢240Width ↔122Height ↕110

    Toyota Sienna certainly is a big car! You can have a camping box behind the seats in the boot and a bed prepared on top of the seats (some DIY adjustments are needed). But, it does come with one of the lowest boot heights out of US minivans (5-10cm/2-5inches lower). It is one of the top cars in terms of size, but not in terms of consumption – it eats almost double of what a typical EU MPV does – you’ve been warned! No wonder, as it has a powerful 3.5 liter V6 engine that offers up to 296 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful minivans available.

  • Berlingo camper (Long)

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢217Width ↔120Height ↕112

    The Berlingo is one of the most often converted cars for camping. Despite not being the biggest – very likely because of its affordability and availability (and availability bias – when you Google small campers, you’ll see a lot of Berlingos, so people naturally assume those are the best, but they are not, read on…).

    The Berlingo (and its similar cousins – Vauxhall Combo, Peugeot Partner) 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.

  • Nissan Townstar camper – Combi & Van

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢186Width ↔119, 125Height ↕111

    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.

  • Dodge Grand Caravan Camper (Chrysler Town and Country)

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢230Width ↔125Height ↕115

    Big and comfy – at places too much (a fold-up TV isn’t really necessary or the table at the back in some models will have to be taken out most likely anyway). Quite expensive to run, harder to drive. On the other hand, it offers a lot of space and storage compartments, comfy seats and plenty of USB and 220V power outlets. If you don’t mind the high consumption and are looking for comfort during long rides, this is a good choice.

    Although Chrysler Town and Country is a different car by name, they are very similar and only differ marginally in terms of size. The biggest difference is in their styling – outside and inside, but nothing that would make a huge difference in terms of camping.

  • Ford Transit Connect camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢215Width ↔124Height ↕129

    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.

  • Opel (Vauxhall) Combo Life XL Camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢223Width ↔120Height ↕113

    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.

  • Chrysler Grand Voyager Camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢230Width ↔123Height ↕115

    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.

  • Mercedes R350 Camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢222Width ↔112Height ↕89

    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.

  • Ram Promaster City Camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢221Width ↔123Height ↕131

    This is your typical MPV/van style body – not seen as much in the US, where the biggest everyday cars are usually family style 7 seaters like the Chrysler Pacifica, Grand Voyager etc. Because of its lighter body, the Promaster offers a slightly better MPG. But it’s still not the biggest in terms of boot size. The cargo (panel van) version will give you the biggest boot and, (despite what Ram’s official website says), I strongly believe that the MPV (wagon) version will give you less boot space. The seats, additional storage and upholstery in the back have to take off some of the boot width, height and length, there’s no way around that. I’d expect the wagon boot size will be similar to the Ford Turneo Connect, which is also its closest rival.

  • VW Multivan Camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢225Width ↔150Height ↕132

    The Multivan is for you if size, versatility & looking cool are your main criteria (and you can afford it – it costs 3x as much as an MPV like a Sharan, but it isn’t 3 times better for camping – it is a cult car that offers a lot of space in a relatively small package, with the added bonus of being able to move and turn the seats and table around as you please + fold them down into a bed. But they can also get in a way and sometimes it’s necessary to remove them to take full advantage of the boot’s size. And you’ll have to get some kind of camping box or a bed to sleep comfortably and make the most of the sheer space. The Multivan is a bit of a cult car and keeps its value even with very high mileage (300K+) and 10+ years of age, so be prepared to pay the price. There aren’t as many DIY Multivan camping conversions – precisely for the reasons outlined on this page, in short – it’s almost the most expensive car of the range where you are paying for flexible seats that you would take out anyway for a DIY conversion. But there are plenty of manufactured camping boxes that you can carry in the boot (behind all the rear seats) and extend when camping (see image gallery for some examples, with and without the rear seats). But then, you can do that in the cheaper Caravelle too, so make sure you know why you’re paying up for a Multivan. Overall, a Multivan can be a great camper – but not out of the box. If you just want to try car camping out, you’ll be better off with a much cheaper MPV that you convert to an occasional camper. And if you like it and decide to commit to car camping, you can try out a Multivan with a camping extension.

  • Ford S-Max Camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢199Width ↔102Height ↕94

    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)

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢217Width ↔119Height ↕95

    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.

    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.

  • Mitsubishi Pajero (Montero, Shogun) camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢180Width ↔102Height ↕110

    The best SUV in our database for camping. The Pajero’s boot is about as long (if not a bit shorter) than other SUVs, but it’s much taller, allowing you to sit and sleep in the back more comfortably. Plus, it is a frequent Dakar winner – you don’t need more than that to know it will perform really well off the road. Where it doesn’t perform that well, especially the older models, is on tarmac – it is a bit rougher than you’d like. Recommended if you plan to spend much more time off-road in rugged terrain.

  • Renault Grand Scenic Camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢183Width ↔109Height ↕93

    It’s not the biggest MPV out there but still offers a good-sized boot for sleeping in. People tend to build sleeping platforms that are 180cm or longer and make them fit by pushing the front seats forward. As a bonus, you can also enjoy the panoramic sunroof that lets you admire the stars at night. This seven-seater MPV is not only stylish and practical, but also fun to drive and easy on the wallet.

    But what makes the Grand Scenic a great choice for camping enthusiasts? Well, for starters, it has a clever modular seating system that allows you to fold down or remove any of the five rear seats individually, creating a flat load floor and up to 1,870 litres of space. That’s enough room for a tent, a couple of sleeping bags, a cooler box, a stove, and whatever else you might need for your trip.

    The Grand Scenic also has plenty of storage compartments throughout the cabin, including underfloor bins, door pockets, cup holders, and a sliding centre console with four USB ports and an AUX input. You can keep all your gadgets and snacks within reach, and charge them on the go. Plus, the Grand Scenic features a panoramic sunroof that lets you enjoy the view of the sky and the stars at night.

    The Grand Scenic is not only practical but also comfortable and enjoyable to drive. The suspension is well-tuned to absorb bumps and potholes, while the steering is light and responsive. The Grand Scenic also comes with a host of safety and convenience features, such as automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors, and a reversing camera.

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.
