The 12 best motorhomes that money can buy


Whether you're after a sub £50k, easy-to-drive campervan for family getaways or a luxurious A-class motorhome for a relaxing break for two, the choice of motorhomes and campervans on the UK market can be completely baffling. 

To help you in your quest to find your perfect motorhome or campervan, we've picked what we believe to be the 12 best 'vans on the market in 2018, with a layout and price to suit every budget...

Best campervan under £50,000: Lunar Campers Lerina campervan

Base vehicle: Toyota Proace
Price from: £42,000
Berths: 4
Travel seats: 4
Gross weight: 3,100kg
Payload: 600kg

A major part of the appeal of the Lunar Campers Lerina campervan comes from its Toyota Proace base vehicle. Built in France alongside its Citroën Dispatch and Peugeot Expert sister models, this new van debuted in 2016 and was said to be the only all-new light commercial vehicle in its class. Power comes from a pair of 2-litre Euro VI diesel engines – a 120bhp unit with six-speed manual gearbox (priced at £42,000) or a 180bhp version with automatic transmission (£44,250). For comparison, the cheapest diesel-powered VW California Ocean is now £56,597...

The Lunar Campers Lerina’s advantage over key campervan rivals isn’t just in terms of price, though. It comes as standard with air-conditioning, remote central locking, cruise control, tinted windows, plus 17in alloy wheels and a 7in multi-media screen with DAB radio and sat-nav. A stop/start system is included to save fuel and reduce emissions and there’s keyless entry, just as you find on many a new car.

The camper conversion uses the classic side kitchen floorplan but incorporates the top-quality fittings that you’d expect if you’ve ever examined a Ford Terrier (a past Campervan of the Year). The kitchen features a Dometic two-burner hob and sink combination, with a useful area of worktop alongside. A small 25-litre front-opening compressor fridge is fitted, with a drawer above, and the galley also provides storage for a portable chemical toilet. The standard spec includes a 100W solar panel and Eberspächer 2.2kW diesel-fired heating, too. 

On site, the cab seats both swivel and the rear bench can be positioned in the optimum position, either to maximise floor space or storage in the rear boot. A free-standing table with tripod base is provided, while bed-making is a simple matter of folding the rear bench to make a flat 1.88m by 1.09m double bed. Importantly, sufficient standing room remains in front of the bed to get undressed.

If you’re after a well-priced, good-to-drive campervan to act as a daily driver, then the Lerina is a modern, generously equipped newcomer that looks set to make significant inroads into a burgeoning market. A five-year conversion and base vehicle warranty is a further big plus.

Best campervan over £50,000: Rolling Homes Magellan campervan

Base vehicle: Mercedes Vito
Price from: £45,995
Berths: 4
Travel seats: 4
Gross weight: 2,800kg
Payload: 400kg

Our sister magazine, Campervan, described the Rolling Homes Magellan as “one of the most desirable campervans out there.” The Caravan and Motorhome Club awarded it a class win – Campervans over £45,000 – in its recent Motorhome Design Awards, with one judge commenting “as good as it gets!” So, we’re not exactly alone in rating this Mercedes-based camper as one of the stars of the 2018 season.

The Vito – converted here in mid-sized Long form, at 5.14m – offers a bit more interior space than the usual, short-wheelbase T6, but it’s a little lower overall. That means that the Magellan is only 1.93m tall with its pop-top lid down – so it’s more likely to go into a domestic garage, multi-storey car park or under a height barrier. The star of the show – as ever with a Rolling Homes camper – is the handcrafted cabinets. Mark Cooper was originally in the bespoke domestic kitchen business before he turned his attentions to campers and the craftsmanship and experience is obvious to see.

The Magellan’s offside furniture is the same width as the unit in the company’s VW Columbus conversion, but here the bed is wider – 1.12m by 1.90m. Its party piece is that you can angle the section closest to the tailgate to create a sort of double-width chaise longue for daytime chilling out or breakfast in bed. There’s also a second double bed – 1.27m by 2.00m – in the SCA Deluxe roof, with the mattress here resting on flexible plastic springs for increased comfort.

The side galley finishes short of the driver’s seat so that tall pilots can be easily accommodated behind the wheel, while the second sliding door, on the offside, provides access to some of the storage, via a door in the back of the kitchen unit. Up top, the cook’s kit includes a stylish Thetford hob and sink combination unit with a black glass surface under the gas burners and an inset stainless-steel bowl. Alongside, a top-loading 40-litre compressor fridge frees up more cupboard/drawer space.

There’s room to keep a chemical loo under the back seat, while the boot area offers generous storage space, especially as the rearmost section of mattress can be raised to a vertical position for taller loads.

Best van conversion with fixed bed: Sunlight Cliff 600 campervan

Base vehicle: Fiat Ducato
Price from: £41,250
Berths: 2/3
Travel seats: 4
Gross weight: 3,300kg
Payload: 435kg

In tune with other Sunlight vehicles, this van conversion holds few surprises. Up front, the half-dinette has separate head restraints for rear passengers and the reading lights clip to a rail and can be positioned wherever you deem most suitable – that feels like a touch from a considerably more expensive vehicle. The compressor fridge has a generous 90-litre capacity and is mounted at chest height for super-easy accessibility.

Opposite, between the washroom and lounge is a surprisingly large wardrobe with a very useful shelved locker below – just one indication that storage is well-thought-out in this vehicle. That’s before you consider the usual fold-away rear bed which allows bikes, etc, to be carried on board.

Although it seems to take up very little interior space, the washroom is actually one of the best features of the motorhome. The tap swivels so you can get your face right over the basin, there’s good storage behind the mirror (with fiddle rails to keep everything in place), the loo has plenty of room for sitting and there’s a hanging rail for wet clothes – in tune with Sunlight’s sporty brand image. Best of all, you won’t be getting yourself all tangled up in a shower curtain.

The bed, of course, along with the storage below, is a key reason to buy and you’ll welcome the thick, comfy mattress, the heater outlet and the movable/removable reading lights. But, if it’s bikes you want to carry, the way the bed folds away is simplicity itself.

A vehicle like this is not about fancy fittings but practical camping, and simple, high-quality design is what Sunlight does best.

Best van conversion without fixed bed: Hillside Hopton campervan 

Base vehicle: Volkswagen Crafter
Price from: £52,995
Berths: 2
Travel seats: 2
Gross weight: 3,500kg
Payload: 650kg

Hillside builds its campers on the Highline spec Volkswagen Crafter with air-conditioning as standard, so the highly competitive £52,995 starting price for a Hopton is more good news. That’s for a 102PS engine, but we’d fork out another £1,350 for the 140PS motor.

The rear lounge floorplan is nothing new but the duo-tone woodwork, Corian-style worktops, optional half-leather trim, induction hob and more show that this is not just a copy of the Fiat/Peugeot-based masses. Of course, the Hopton feels even more roomy when you relax in the rear lounge with the back doors flung open for that indoors/outdoors mix that’s so appealing. But it does cosy, too, when the weather comes over all British and you slot in the extra cushions to create a wrap-around U-shaped lounge. Even the under-seat storage is pretty generous.

With its dual-fuel hob mounted flush with the upmarket galley worktop, the kitchen starts off on a positive note. The cooler is a good size, too – 90 litres – and mounted at eye-level, while storage throughout the galley uses drawers rather than cupboards, so finding what you’ve packed should be a doddle. There’s a Smev gas oven/grill, as well, and the promised radiused corners to the kitchen unit and fold-up flap at the forward end of the galley will be the finishing touches to a far better kitchen than you’d probably expect in this class of motorhome.

Opposite, the silver walls of the washroom make a pleasant change from the usual white, while the tambour door for access is very convenient. Finally, at night you have the choice of sleeping singly or together, in longitudinal beds. The super-sized double is 1.90m by 1.75m and having to tuck your feet under the overhanging hob (nearside) or fridge (offside) seems like a small price to pay for such instant, comfy beds on top-notch slatted bases. Pleated blinds are a further upmarket fitting.

Best fixed bed motorhome under £50,000: Sun Living S 65SL motorhome

Base vehicle: Fiat Ducato
Price from: £45,925
Berths: 3/4
Travel seats: 4
Gross weight: 3,500kg
Payload: 818kg

What if you could have a big bathroom when you’re actually using it, but a small one when – for 99% of the time – this space is not required? Well, that’s exactly what Sun Living has come up with in this new layout for 2018.

Its answer is a clever ‘hideaway’ washroom, where, in effect, the whole front wall of the ablutions quarters is a huge tambour door and, in an arrangement not dissimilar to that seen in some continental van conversions, the shape of the door’s tracking allows the washroom to contract when not in use. There simply isn’t another fixed bed motorhome of such compact length (6.71m) that feels so roomy inside.

It’s not just the bathroom that benefits from the hideaway design, but the kitchen, too. The L-shaped integrated hob and sink unit is a good design which frees up a little worktop and the oven/grill is a standard fitting for the UK. Cupboard space is more than adequate, too.

In the lounge things are pretty conventional but the raised floor won’t leave legs dangling and the pull-out perch that emerges from under the wardrobe is great as a footrest when reclining in the driver’s seat. More importantly, perhaps, in this layout the twin beds are a good size; both at least 1.91m. Under the beds is a proper garage, measuring 0.80m wide and 1.05m high across the whole width of the motorhome and equipped with two full-sized doors, as well as tie-down hooks and a light.

So, we reckon Sun Living is a brand to watch. Its dealer network is growing, too, with seven outlets now representing the marque in the UK – with dealers across Europe from Seville to Moscow, if you’re planning a big continental tour. And, if the single bed layout is not for you, then you’ll see the same clever washroom design in models with a transverse rear double bed or bunks.

Best fixed bed motorhome over £50,000: Dethleffs Advantage Edition T 705l EB motorhome

Base vehicle: Fiat Ducato
Price from: £59,995
Berths: 3
Travel seats: 4
Gross weight: 3,850kg
Payload: 812kg

When we spent a few days away in this special edition Dethleffs, the most difficult part of the review was finding anything much to really criticise. The Dethleffs Advantage Edition is actually a continental range that wasn’t originally destined to come here at all – until Lowdhams spotted its potential and snapped up an exclusive deal. It’s the very long list of standard kit that really grabs your attention, though.

You can choose from island bed (T 7051) or single bed (T 7051 EB) layouts, with the latter coming in low bed form or with high beds (and thus a full garage). The EB and non-EB versions are identical forward of the bedroom and both come with either 130 or 150bhp engines, and a choice of manual or Comfort-Matic gearboxes.

The Edition’s fairly compact galley has more of a stepped depth to the worktop than a true L-shape, which appears to open up a bit more floor space in the area. A folding worktop extension is a practical addition, too. Second only to the specification in the reason-to-buy stakes is the EB layout’s end bedroom and en suite.

Opting for the low single bed model completely changes the feel of the bedroom, and it could actually be seen as offering a super king-sized double. There are single mattresses on either side – each at least 2m long – but in between is a central cushion measuring 1.10m long. Then there’s a further slot-in centre section which increases the length of the middle bit of bed to 1.72m – now it’s practically a triple bed, measuring 2.13m across!

The whole en suite bedroom area can be segregated using the toilet door, while the shower and loo can then be made private from the bedroom with a pull-across concertina screen. In any case, the shower eschews the usual clear plastic enclosure for a rotating, grey tambour door, which is left ‘open’ for a more spacious feel when not occupied.

So, a great fixed bed motorhome with all the toys for just over £60k.

Best non-fixed bed motorhome under £50,000: Lunar Cassini EL motorhome

Base vehicle: Renault Master
Price from: £40,994
Berths: 2
Travel seats: 2
Gross weight: 3,500kg
Payload: 620kg

We’re in ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it’ territory here, with plenty of space for a decent bathroom and kitchen up front and, in the rear, a lounge that’s super comfortable and easily makes up into a bed when the time comes for lights out. In short, a classic tourer for two that’s easy to live with, drive and park.

The standard Renault motor pushes out 130 horsepower, while a 145bhp unit is on the options list, as is an automatic gearbox, which comes with the 170-horsepower engine. This example of the EL was fitted with the Driver’s Pack (just £1,399) – pretty essential as it contains cab air-con, cruise control and a radio with DAB and sat-nav. Notable is the fact that a passenger airbag is fitted as standard, when many rivals charge extra.

The lounge is U-shaped and very thickly upholstered in cream fabric, with comfortable accommodation for up to seven. At dinner time the table emerges from its home in the wardrobe to stand between the sofas. Come bedtime, construction of a double bed is simply a matter of pulling out aisle-filling frames, sliding base cushions forwards and dropping backrests in behind. In fact, with a length that’s just an inch short of seven feet and width of just over six feet, this is a huge bed in which you might choose to sleep lengthways. Or simply removing the backrest cushions creates two singles.

Just as lounges are a forte of British motorhomes, kitchens are often a strength, too – at least in the area of cooking appliances. Cassini EL offers a pretty full complement of cooking kit – a three-burner hob, oven/grill and above, a swish stainless-steel microwave.

Rather than try to squeeze a separate shower into the washroom, Lunar has created an integrated alternative that’s well designed. Underfoot, the shower tray goes the extra mile to help water drain away when the ’van isn’t quite level with no less than three drains. The rest of the room is furnished in sensible fashion with a corner basin, high-level cabinet and swivel-bowl loo.

A great new take on a classic layout, the Cassini offers an arguably superior base vehicle – a fact that makes its stonking-value price even more remarkable.

Best non-fixed bed motorhome over £50,000: Benimar Tessoro 483 motorhome

Base vehicle: Renault Master
Price from: £40,994
Berths: 2
Travel seats: 2
Gross weight: 3,500kg
Payload: 620kg

Now in its fourth season back in Britain, Benimar has risen rapidly to become one of the country’s favourite imported brands. There’s a smart new addition this season with Benimar fitting a touchscreen DAB radio with sat-nav and reversing screen built-in. The 2018 models also get automatic lights and wipers and a quick-defrosting windscreen. Already included were a metallic silver cab, ESP, traction control, Hill Assist, alloy wheels, air-conditioning, cruise control and remote central locking.

The 483 also introduces a new layout, making it three models now that have the over-lounge drop-down double as their main sleeping quarters. The Benimar’s bed is superbly comfortable and glides down to whatever height you like at the twist of a key. The 483 scores an even bigger victory over rivals as a four-berth, though. The omission of cupboards below the drop-down bed not only allows it to come down lower in two-berth mode but frees up more headroom for family sleeping below when you’re mob-handed. And the lower bed, for once, is a good one – very big and largely flat, while its make-up is not too complicated, either.

The Tessoro 483 is one of the few low-profiles without a fixed bed that does have a full-sized garage. Another key feature, of course, is the generous-sized lounge. With a long L-settee on the offside (incorporating belted travel seats for two), a two-person sofa on the nearside and twin swivel cab chairs, there’s room for at least six to gather around the large table. Then there’s a kitchen with giant (149-litre) fridge/freezer and a microwave. A combined oven/grill features, too, and the hob has a mains hotplate in addition to the two gas rings.

But perhaps the most surprising aspect of this new Tessoro is the rear bathroom – and its humungous wardrobe behind two large mirror-fronted wardrobe doors. There’s plenty of room to get dressed and undressed in the washroom, while the shower is a separate cubicle that’s hard to fault.

So, this Benimar is a great all-rounder with a huge bathroom, big garage and large lounge, plus a comprehensive spec and the driver appeal of the Ford base. And you can buy one from Marquis branches all around the UK.

Best family van conversion: Dreamer Family Van campervan

Base vehicle: Fiat Ducato
Price from: £48,700
Berths: 5
Travel seats: 5
Gross weight: 3,500kg
Payload: 500kg

The Dreamer Family Van squeezes in no less than five berths and five travel seats. While Dreamer may not use the longest Ducato van, the Family Van is based on the loftiest version, the extra-high H3 model. Using the taller van also crucially provides enough space for a lengthways, drop-down double bed to be installed above the lounge.

The bed – measuring a respectable 1.86m by 1.24m – descends manually, with a ladder provided for access. Under the lowered bed there’s still just enough headroom to sit in the lounge and it’s possible to turn the seats here into a fifth berth. Better still, the rear is not just a bunk room, but also a versatile stowage area.

The lounge is, unsurprisingly, based on a half-dinette and this provides two belted travel seats. Cab chairs make it four seatbelts, while a rearward-facing, lap-belted removable seat sets up atop a box just inside the side door for passenger number five.

Moving rearwards, the kitchen includes a low-level oven/grill and a two-burner hob/sink combo that fills the counter space. There is a small-but-useful flip-up surface at the unit’s forward end to make the cook’s life easier, while the galley’s drawers are big and centrally locked via a twist knob.The wardrobe and fridge face each other across the aisle at the rear.

Despite all this, the Dreamer still offers a full washroom – making it all the more desirable for those trading up from a small VW. Another plus concerns the fresh and waste water tanks – unusually for a van conversion, both are inboard, beneath the washroom.

So, here’s a six-metre van conversion that really does work for a family – without requiring mum, dad or two kids to ever have to assemble a bed. It’s well-made, winterised and has good storage, while its compact dimensions will let you explore off the beaten track where a coachbuilt wouldn’t fit.

Best family coachbuilt: Chausson 711 Welcome Travel Line motorhome

Base vehicle: Fiat Ducato
Price from: £55,150
Berths: 4
Travel seats: 4
Gross weight: 3,500kg
Payload: 449kg

It’s not just the quartet of comfy seats that makes this Chausson a one-of-a-kind motorhome. While most continental motorhomes have their habitation door on the right and UK-built ’vans have theirs on the left, the 711 has two doors into the living area – one on each side. What’s more of a USP is that there are actually two drop-down double beds in the 711.

At the rear, the lounge table descends at the turn of a key, so the bed can come down to an easy-hop-in sofa level. This double berth is comfortable, long and wide, too. The front bed cannot come down as low – you’ll need to use the ladder here as the top of the fridge is partially in the way, but there’s still good headroom above.

Although this motorhome doesn’t have a fixed bed, it does have a garage. And if you’re an enthusiastic outdoor cook, you don’t have to clutter the garage with a gas grill. The optional Easy Chef – a three-burner hob/griddle which slides out of a dedicated locker – is a brilliant addition.

Inside, those four swivel chairs up front aren’t just great on the road, but they make an excellent lounge area, too. There’s a snack/coffee table here, too, and unusually for an imported ’van it’s removable. And the second lounge is that British favourite – a rear wrap-around U-shape. Here, you could probably seat eight in reasonable comfort. And the larger round table here makes the back of the ’van a great place to dine.

After all this adventurous design, the kitchen is pretty ordinary. For British buyers the galley has been especially redesigned to incorporate Thetford’s Triplex cooker with dual-fuel hob, grill and oven. The tall ‘n’ slim Dometic unit boasts 134 litres, as well as benefiting from a removable freezer section and automatic energy selection.

The washroom doesn’t disappoint. A circular theme here sees a round basin, toilet lid and integrated shower cubicle fit snugly, while storage is squarer, with a shallow but expansive cupboard above and big pigeonhole further down behind the loo.

But this isn’t about the spec, it’s about rethinking motorhome design and coming up with something that isn’t just for retired couples. It’s unique on the market today and one of the most exciting designs of 2018.

Best A-class under £100,000: Rapido 8094df motorhome

Base vehicle: Fiat Ducato Al-Ko
Price from: £70,600
Berths: 4
Travel seats: 4
Gross weight: 3,500kg
Payload: 385kg

While much of the new Rapido 8094dF comes from sister models in the 80-Series and will be of no surprise to those who know their way around an imported motorhome, you only have to turn left as you enter and go beyond the usual split washroom facilities to find something completely different. Here, it would have been easy for Rapido to copy a British U-shape, but instead it created a stylish L-shaped sofa and an ideal space for two people to relax.

Up front, the 8094dF differs from its forebear in having a very British dinette of side-facing settees. Combined with white walls, gloss white cabinets in a reversed ‘L’ (facing the seats) and optional creamy beige leather-like upholstery, the effect is one of open-plan spaciousness. You could seat six here, or there’s room to spin the cab seats right round and put your feet up on the sofas. Typically, too, the table is unobtrusive and adequately sized for a light breakfast, then it unfolds for a full gastronomic extravaganza.

Even the kitchen impresses compared with most imports. There are bigger galleys, of course, but it seems to have everything – a kitchen roll holder, an extractor hood, a 160-litre two-door fridge/freezer, a three-in-line hob, a generous supply of centrally locked drawers, an illuminated splashback and a low-level oven/grill (as part of the upgraded UK spec).

But it’s in the basement where the Rapido beats lesser motorhomes. Equipping its 80-Series models with a double floor not only makes them eminently more suitable for winter camping, as well as creating a flat floor from cab right through to rear settee, but also gives the 8094dF enough storage space for you to start thinking about a chassis upgrade (3,700kg and 4,400kg options are offered). If that’s not enough, then there’s an external locker under the rear lounge that’s the next best thing to a full garage.

Having an A-class gives you another plus – that instant, comfortable drop-down double bed in the cab. If you prefer, there’s a second double to be made from the rear settee.

Close the toilet door across the aisle and the whole rear of the vehicle becomes a dressing room. There’s an excellent separate shower and the toilet area impresses with its storage.

Best A-class over £100,000: Hymer B-Class SupremeLine 708 motorhome

Base vehicle: Fiat Ducato Al-Ko
Price from: £90,730
Berths: 4
Travel seats: 4
Gross weight: 4,500kg
Payload: 1,110kg

When Hymer launches a new B-Class, everyone takes notice, especially when that B has the SupremeLine suffix, heralding a new flagship. The B-SL is not just a facelift, though – it shows off a brand-new, exclusive-to-Hymer chassis, dubbed SLC (Super Light Chassis). This has been developed with Al-Ko to provide a deeper double floor containing all the services, the heating and extra storage, as well as creating the largest garage in its class (which can carry up to 350kg as standard).

This a 4.5-tonne motorhome which the driver can enjoy with confidence. The twin-lens, bus-style mirrors are superb and the optional multi-media unit even includes a camera to show you when your waste outlet is perfectly positioned over a drain. Inside, the air of restrained elegance is applied to a layout that holds no surprises for anyone already considering a European island bed floorplan – there’s also a B-SL 704 which is identical bar a bedroom with twin beds, and second, slightly shorter twin bed model, the B-SL 674.

The kitchen includes a drop-down compartment for a pod-based coffee machine, as well as special recesses for the pods themselves. And Hymer is a follower of fashion with the three-burners-in-line hob, controls for which are stylishly mounted separately on the front of the galley, while the oven/grill goes above the 160-litre fridge/freezer. Then there’s a large sink with reversible cover, the underside revealing a chopping board. And six large drawers provide copious storage.

When it comes to the ablutions facilities, the 708 has the usual across-the-aisle en suite with a toilet compartment door that does the familiar trick of providing closure between the bathroom and the lounge/kitchen. The shower is the feature that you’ll notice first… With real glass doors, it looks like something out of an apartment, and has dimensions to match. It’s backed up by 180-litre water tanks, too.

At over 2m long and more than 1.50m wide, the island bed is, again, very generously sized, and, while it has radiused corners, these don’t rob you of too much mattress. Even better, the luxuriously thick mattress slides back electrically, raising the head of the bed as it goes.

You’ll not want for storage. There are his and hers, illuminated wardrobes in the bedroom and an ideal home for footwear under the side seat. Of course, there’s loads more storage in that double floor, too. And the garage is huge, with its larger loading door on the offside and an internal height of at least 1.10m.

And if all this luxury isn’t enough, there are options to consider – from the Arctic Package or Alde heating to a ceramic loo or a hidden safe. You’ll probably spend at least £115k to get the spec spot on for your B-SL but this motorhome shows Hymer doing what it does best. Few other A-classes come close.
