Land Rover Discovery camper

The Land Rover Discovery offers about average boot length and height compared to other SUV Campers but gives you more width. It is a luxurious (and hence expensive) car so it’s not the usual choice people go for when looking for an SUV camper. It offers great off-road capabilities and more luxuries than your average SUV. It’s consumption is also a bit higher than a typical SUV in our database.

This car's boot is 185 cm long ⤢, 84 cm tall ↕, and 122 cm wide ↔.

NimbleCamper rating: 2.6/5

Frequently asked questions:

Yes, you can – its boot isn’t the longest or tallest compared to other SUVs in our database, but you can get up to 202cm x 122cm maximum sleeping area (with the front seats pushed all the way to the back and rear seats folded down) – which is quite something! You will need to build some support between the front and middle seats mind you. Or you just fold the seats down to get a 175cm x 122cm sleeping area, which is still good enough for sleeping for most people. The seats fold down completely flat, the boot width is actually one of the widest among SUVs and the car is very luxurious overall. The boot is about 84cm tall, pretty average for an SUV. See our DIY camping conversions for ideas on how to sleep in a Land Rover Discovery.

In summary, while both the Land Rover Discovery and the Range Rover offer luxurious interiors and impressive off-road abilities, the Range Rover caters to a more exclusive and upscale market seeking unparalleled refinement and status, while the Discovery appeals to those looking for a versatile, family-oriented SUV with rugged capabilities.

The Discovery should be able to do more than 520 miles of driving range on a single tank of gas.

The Land Rover Discovery has been generally well-regarded for its off-road capabilities, luxurious interior, and versatile design. However, when it comes to reliability, Land Rover vehicles, including the Discovery, have had a mixed reputation.

Land Rovers, in general, have been known to experience reliability issues and have scored below average in some reliability surveys and consumer reports. Common problems have included electronic glitches, engine issues, and various mechanical faults. These issues could result in costly repairs and maintenance, which might be a concern for some potential buyers.

However, it’s essential to note that reliability can vary depending on the model year and how well the vehicle has been maintained by previous owners. Land Rover has made efforts to improve reliability over the years, and newer models might have fewer problems compared to older ones.

To get the most up-to-date and accurate information on the Land Rover Discovery’s reliability, I recommend checking recent consumer reports, owner reviews, and expert opinions. These sources can provide real-world insights into the vehicle’s performance and reliability based on more recent data and experiences. Additionally, if you decide to purchase a used Land Rover Discovery, consider getting a comprehensive inspection from a trusted mechanic before making the purchase to identify any potential issues.

The Land Rover Discovery is confirmed to work well with these camping boxes:

But make sure you check whether it fits your car model and it’s exact boot measurements.

Or you can make one yourself (it’s for an older version of the Land Rover).

  • Average used price, GBP (2015) – I use Carsite.co.uk‘s price aggregates from 2015 (or the nearest possible year if not available), or, if not found, from autoscout24.com. For new cars, I specify the closest possible match (i.e. if released this year, it’s the new price, if released two years ago, it’s the 2-years old price etc). It’s here to give you a benchmark comparison (- a like for like, an apple with an apple) of the value of each car and for filtering purposes. It’s not meant to be used as an accurate estimate of used car value – it is updated once a year, so make sure you know what the car should cost at the time of purchase if you decide to buy one.
  • Boot dimensions – taken from various sources across the web, starting with official, supplemented with other reliable websites (like ridc.org.uk), supplemented by user-generated content – images of measurements from forums or social networks. It’s also used for filtering, comparison and to give you a good idea of the car’s suitability for camping.
  • Comfort rating – a benchmark used to simplify the car’s comfort & driving score based on equipment, furnishings, handling, safety, and costs ratings from external sources like whatcar.com, carwow.co.uk, autocar.co.uk etc. It gives you an indication of whether the car will drive and feel like a van (low rating) or offer better interior & handling (higher rating). A simple van-like car, for example, a Renault Kangoo is 0.5, a well equipped and comfortable car like a Ford S-Max is a 2. No hard math behind it, just an indicator, f.e. 0.5= basic car that does the job, 1.5 = hey, that’s nice to have!, 2 = oooh, comfyyyy.
  • Consumption – I take the average 2017 consumption or closest match from Fuelly.com, or if none is available, from other sources like honestjohn.co.uk. If there are not enough cars for a single year, an average for several years is calculated.
  • NimbleCamper rating – a weighted score of boot length (45% weight), boot height (40%), consumption (10%) and comfort (5%). The logic of weighing length & height higher than consumption and comfort is – headroom is important when you sleep in the back of the car, so is the length. A comfy ride is a factor, but you can sleep in a big car that’s not that comfy, however, it’s much harder to camp/sleep in a comfy car that’s too small. Read more about the NimbleCamper rating and criteria here.
    • a note for EVs (electric vehicles) – for consumption, I am using the Fuel Equivalent Consumption estimate by ev-database.org. It is usually much lower than combustion engines, giving EVs an advantage – which I think is fair. They do have a small disadvantage in terms of having to plan your trips around charging stations + longer waiting time, but that will get better over time. More charging stations, faster chargers and better batteries. Therefore I am not adjusting the calculation for EVs in any way.
    • In short: a litre of petrol contains about 8.9 kWh of energy. If we divide the energy consumption of an EV by this (f.e. 16 kWh/100 km divided by 8.9 kWh/litre), we get equivalent fuel consumption of 1.8 l/100 km.
