The best campers on the market
More and more people are choosing to change the typical trip we all know for an adventure on wheels aboard a motorhome or even a camper.
In fact, according to the Asociacion Espanola de la Industria y Comercio del Caravaning (ASEICAR), sales of this type of vehicle have grown by no less than 340 percent in the last five years in our country.
But what are the advantages of travelling by motorhome or camper? Why have so many people already opted for this option or are thinking of doing so? The first thing to keep in mind is that these types of vehicles have gained in comfort in recent times.
Years ago, they were presented as models designed to cover the most basic needs of their occupants. Today, manufacturers have been improving these vehicles, which do not lack the slightest detail. Another advantage compared to booking an apartment or hotel is the cost of the getaway, much lower, especially if you travel with your family. Moving by motorhome or camper also offers us other facilities such as being able to take all the luggage we want or even our pets.
In addition, we will never be subject to transport schedules or accommodation, but we will have a flexibility and freedom impossible to achieve in any other way. On the other hand, overnight stays - something that usually worries users - have increased in recent years, making it increasingly easy to find multiple options for spending the night where it suits you best.
As if that weren't enough, the camper van segment continues to grow, offering us more and more complete model car brands adapted to different tastes and/or needs. For this reason, here is a selection of the best campers you can find on the market today.
The French manufacturer just presented the new versions of the SpaceTourer, developed together with the specialist company Tinkervan.
The range will be made up of several alternatives, both in body sizes M and XL. In addition, the model also incorporates a folding table, two swivel seats and an electric shower.
Fiat has also joined the car, with the camper version of the Fullback Cross, which came to market combining robustness and versatility in equal parts. The range includes the Tischer Trail 200 cab, which has a living room, kitchen and double bed.
Using the Transit Custom as a base, the American firm haven’t missed the opportunity to develop the Nugget version, which has everything you need - beds, wardrobes, auxiliary heating, kitchen, tables, chairs, refrigerator, shower etc. - for four adults to enjoy their holidays anywhere.
This model has managed to position itself as one of the preferred camper options of users. The interior of the Marco Polo is at the same level as its attractive exterior. In fact, the dashboard is the same as any other vehicle of the German brand.
Asian brands have also wanted to join this fashion. The specialist from BRAM Technologies has been in charge of converting both the interior and exterior of the NV300 into a real camper. It features a new image in two colors, classic type rims, awning and roof lift.
If we combine the camper segment with the electric, the result is the camper version of the e-NV200. This model incorporates practically the same comforts as the NV300 but in a smaller format. It includes two beds, a table, kitchen, awning and even folding outdoor furniture.
Opel developed this model with the aim of making it an ideal travel companion for the most adventurous customers. And it did. Equipped as standard with three rows of seats, the Vivaro Life is capable of converting the rear seats into a bed, leaving the bottom of the trunk to store luggage.
Like the Citroen SpaceTourer, Tinkervan were the company in charge of camperizing this French van. The result of this transformation is a comfortable vehicle for day-to-day use, as well as a real camper for weekend or holiday trips.
Toyota's proposal has a shower, fridge, bed, as well as an infinity of details that will make your escapades an unforgettable experience. It offers three different finishes -Outfun, Nomad and NomadPLUS-, which differ in the amount of elements included, so that the user can choose the one that best suits their needs.
And with this iconic model, we come to the end of our classification. The Volkswagen California, now in its sixth generation, has everything you need to escape to any place to disconnect, enjoying nature in a different way than you knew until now.
