    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.

  • Air Seconds Base Connect – Inflatable car tent

    £300

    Don’t like fiddling around with poles? This inflatable car tent might be the right choice for you then (note that it does require a separate pump). It’s made to connect to cars and vans, you can also buy an additional bedroom section to put inside. This looks like Decathlon’s first venture into real car tents (as so far, it was unintended – they built tents that happened to fit cars too). It’s also 10cm taller than the Arpenaz Base M. The sheet + poles make joining it to your car even more flexible. It has two large openings on opposite ends, giving you a choice of which side you’ll attach to the car. Key benefits:

    • versatility – fits most MPVs – tailgate or side-door, you can connect it from two ends
    • good quality – tested in long rain, strong winds, it holds up pretty well (relatively to the price)
    • easy to put up/down

    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

    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.

Se le dimensioni del bagagliaio sono il tuo criterio principale, non puoi sbagliare con una Sharan. L’auto si guida bene e offre un buon comfort nella parte anteriore per il conducente e il passeggero. Non è l’auto migliore per uscire completamente di strada, ma puoi portarla su una strada fangosa abbastanza buona senza grossi problemi. Un’ottima soluzione per il campeggio in auto o per la conversione in microcamping, a meno che tu non intenda attraversare foreste e fare molto fuoristrada.

  • Nissan e-NV200 camper – Combi

    Boot dimensions:

    Boasting one of the tallest boots out of electric MPVs, this is one of the best EV Campers you’ll find. Boot length isn’t the best (albeit still over 2 meters, so good), meaning you’ll be giving away leg room for more headroom.

    It also offers better interior and drive comfort compared to its combustion engine counterpart. What would improve its NimbleCamper rating further? Even higher cabin and drive comfort and longer boot. To get the most out of the e-NV200, go for the Acenta trim, which will help you maximise your range.

    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.
