Travelling is always a wonderful experience, but if you travel frequently in your family car, you may find that its a bit cramped. If you aren’t interested in all the inconveniences of a massive RV, but still want all the bells and whistles to make your adventures all the better, a camper van may be for you. They provide much more space than your everyday sedan, but not all the hassle (or the low gas mileage) of a large RV. Plus, they are all rigged up for overnight stay, meaning you can skip the high costs of a hotel room, and enjoy setting up shop anywhere you please. You can do some sweet custom conversions to any of these vans for an amazingly personal and memorable set up.
We have compiled a list of all the best camper vans on the market to help you choose which is best for you and your adventurous spirit, but first, it’s best to know all the accessories available, from luxury beds to fully functional kitchens.
Choosing the Best Camper Van For You
From mega off-road monsters, stylish luxury sleepers, and minimalistic compact campers, you have lots to choose from. There are a few key considerations to make when choosing a camper van to fit your lifestyle and budget:
- Size: Camper vans come both big and small, with plenty of middle ground to choose from as well. You should consider exactly how much space you need by estimating how many people will be traveling and how much gear you need, including necessities, personal items, and recreational supplies. Camper vans typically sleep anywhere from 2 to 6 people, and will have seating arrangements fit to match the sleeping capacity. Look for creative storage options, such as storage underneath the retractable awning or campers that utilize crawl space, which will help you feel less cramped.
