Although there are quite a few Skoda Roomster campers, it’s not the best car for the job – it’s too short (although you can push the front seats forward and put in a whole 195cm camping bed, you are sacrificing storage space + can’t drive with the bed set up). The only thing that saves the car is a slightly higher boot than a standard estate car. It’s not an expensive car, but that shows in the interior & drive quality. It’s a good choice compared to a VW Golf, but not compared to a Caddy, Peugeot Grand Kangoo (closest in the price range to a Roomster) or a Ford Galaxy.
Many conversions I’ve seen fold the front seats down completely (not towards the front, but they lay the backrest down towards the back) and then build a platform above them. This way, you can get more than 200cm/78in sleeping area – but you are still sacrificing quite a lot of storage space. You can get some of it back by removing the rear seats.
