Best new motorhomes and campervans of 2021
Best campervan: Auto Campers Day Van Eco-line Series
What Motorhome said: “The key to this camper is that quality has not been sacrificed. Throughout, this is a conversion that exudes sturdy, practical design. It eschews bling and feels built to last.”
Budget van conversion: Auto-Trail Expedition 66
What Motorhome said: “This new camper is perfect for first-time buyers on a tight budget and anyone who would rather not buy used. Head to your local Auto-Trail dealer for THE bargain buy of 2021…”
Van conversion without fixed bed: Consort Reef
What Motorhome said: “This camper is about sensible, practical design and lessons learned through years of using campervans. If you think that all rear lounge campers are much the same, maybe take a look at a Consort before you sign on the dotted line for another brand.”
Fixed bed van conversion: Globecar Roadscout Elegance
What Motorhome said: “Here, then, is another high-quality Globecar campervan with a predictably Euro-style interior. What is does do is incorporate a better kitchen and washroom than many of its ilk into a camper that’s a great size for adventuring off the beaten track, as well as into towns and cities.”
Fixed bed coachbuilt (under £60k): Carado T459 Clever+ Edition
What Motorhome said: “Spacious and sturdily made, the T459 is a great example of this popular type of layout. In Clever+ Edition form it has a comprehensive spec that wants for almost nothing, while giving the impression that it will be a better long-term proposition than any competitor with a similarly keen price tag.”
Fixed bed coachbuilt (over £60k): Adria Matrix Supreme 670 SL
What Motorhome said: “From its all-silver exterior to its strikingly modern interior, this new Matrix offers everything the luxury motorhome of 2021 should.”
Coachbuilt without fixed bed (under £60k) Pilote P626D Evidence
What Motorhome said: “Overall, we love the compact size of this Pilote but it’s the Evidence spec that makes the P626D look such superb value at under £60k including the automatic gearbox.”
Coachbuilt without fixed bed (over £60k) Auto-Sleeper Broadway EL
What Motorhome said: “In a premium-priced British motorhome you expect a good kitchen, and you won’t be disappointed by the Broadway. Overall, if you’re looking for a luxury two-berth rear lounge motorhome, you need to look no further.”
Family van conversion: Elddis Autoquest CV80
What Motorhome said: “At first glance, the latest Elddis campervan is exactly the same as the existing CV40 model – no bad thing as it’s a proven product. But look up and you’ll spot the difference – the addition of a pop-top roof that makes the CV80 into a four-berth.”
Family coachbuilt: Bailey Adamo 75-4DL
What Motorhome said: “Bailey’s new Adamo isn’t the first motorhome to match a rear lounge with a garage but it does so with aplomb. For a start, this is a proper garage, but just a useful extra external locker.”
Compact coachbuilt: Chausson X550 Exclusive Line
What Motorhome said: “There have been many attempts to combine the advantages of the two types of leisure vehicle – the compact and car-like campervan and the more homely, more spacious motorhome. Chausson’s X550 could be the best combination yet of the features of each genre.”
A-class: Niesmann + Bischoff iSmove 6.9E
What Motorhome said: “You can spec your iSmove to meet your needs exactly. Here is everything that’s made the Arto and Flair such a success but in a more manageable size and with a load of clever new features. The iSmove is our Motorhome of the Year 2021.”
