November 7, 2014

Why it pays to downsize

While some may think that bigger is better, when it comes to motorhoming – there’s a lot to be said for keeping things compact. From navigating windy country lanes to actually parking the thing, smaller motorhomes offer more versatility and are easier to live with at the end of the day – not forgetting, they’re also more affordable! With this in mind, we’re bringing you a round-up of the best small motorhomes on the market today.

The Romahome R20

For all-round practicality the Romahome R20 really is hard to beat. Based on the Citroen Berlingo panel van, the R20 drives like a much smaller vehicle offering more maneuverability and lower running costs compared to its competitors. Don’t be fooled by the exterior dimensions, there’s plenty of space on board for two people. The Romahome R20 could be yours from as little as £28,000!

Onboard you’ll find tastefully coordinated upholstery, providing a warm and welcoming living space. Features like the extra-wide rear door allow easier access, allowing you to open up the space and let nature inside. The Romahome comes with a freshwater tank, waste tank, fridge, sink, battery charger, flyscreens and blinds – handy for keeping out those pesky mid-summer mozzies.

The Wheelhome Vikenze

Despite its compactness, the Vikenze is a popular choice and is available in one or two berth setups – starting at just £26,000. This tiny motorhome is ideal for spontaneous short trips away!

Based on the excellent Fiat Fiorino Combi van, the Vikenze has more power than most motorhomes thanks to its 1.3L MultiJet turbodiesel engine. It’s surprisingly efficient too, returning an average of 50 mpg – keeping running costs to a minimum on longer journeys. The Vikenze’s rear seats fold down to reveal the sleeping area, while essentials like an electric oven and hob provide basic cooking facilities.

The Danbury VW T2

Most people associate the legendary VW Camper as being the motorhome of choice and the Danbury VW T2 is a conversion that pays homage to the iconic van. With prices starting at £33,849, the T2 offers a real home-from-home feel – with ample room for four people to live and travel in comfort.

With fuel prices at an all time high, Danbury offer the T2 with a super efficient biodiesel engine – a real selling factor for eco conscious buyers. Standard kit onboard includes a sofa bed, two burner hob and grill, sink and a large sliding side access door. There’s also a large list of options available to customise the T2 to suit your needs.
