Summary

The VW Caddy Maxi Life is the second biggest MPV out there (as of 2021) but probably the best small camper van available. 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.
VW Caddy Maxi Life is one of the top cars in our 30+ cars for car camping table.

TLDR – Conclusion

If I was to buy a car for camping, it would definitely be a VW Caddy Maxi Life. It’s good enough in terms of comfort but it wins big time in terms of boot space it offers. And most camping boxes you can find are made to fit the Caddy.

Caddy comes in two sizes – Short and Maxi. I would definitely recommend the maxi version for camping:

How does the Caddy compare to other everyday campers?

The Caddy is proudly in the lead – it’s not #1 for size, but if you want size and better comfort than say a Doblo, then Caddy is the winner.

Autotrader.co.uk offers a wide selection of used cars – new or older at a range of prices that will fit any buyer. Prices start at around £4,000.
