a real alternative to motorhomes?

Small, practical, inexpensive … Furnished vans are an alternative to classic motorhomes. Is right ?

Converted vans are on the rise. On social networks, many are to embark on the adventure, “Old-fashioned”, with three times nothing. Whether in Europe or the United States, these vans have democratized and rejuvenated the image of motorhomes. But is this here a simple trend, or do campervans have real weighty arguments compared to classic motorhomes? We will explain everything to you.

Homemade, a new romanticism

One of the advantages of campervans is that it is possible to make it yourself. In theory, it’s pretty straightforward: buy a utility, new or used, do some insulation work, add a bed, kitchen, sanitary space, and go and play. The idea is attractive, and seems to tempt a young audience in search of adventure. But obviously these works are often far from simple. And the hand-made pushes the resale prices down.

Maneuverability, a much less intimidating factor

The size, both in length and width, of a motorhome intimidates novices. Not easy to maneuver and even less to park, they are not comfortable, especially in the city. Campervans, on the other hand, are much easier to drive, especially for the smallest of them. For more local tourism, this is a strong point.

Space on board, good and less good

Obviously, these converted vans cannot compete with full size motorhomes in terms of space on board. But on the larger versions, the roominess can be quite correct, with a seating area in the front, a stove, a transverse bed, and shower / WC. But vans are primarily intended for solo travelers or couples: if you are with family, they will not be suitable.

Prices for converted vans: the sinews of war

As always, it’s the price that often tips the scales. Where it is often difficult to find a new motorhome under € 50,000 with the correct equipment, many good quality vans are available. available below 40,000 €, or even much less on occasion. No question of luxury motorhome then. But it’s perfect for a first step into the motorhome world, even if it means switching to larger models when the family grows!
