In a motorhome made for two…

Think ‘motorhome’ and there’s a tendency to conjure up visions of those big beasts of the campsite, complete with their coach-like dimensions and facilities fit for a small army.

But for couples (or indeed individuals) who want to enjoy the freedoms offered by a home-on-wheels without an entourage, there’s an amazing selection of more compact vehicles to choose from.

Some are referred to as ‘Class B’ motorhomes. This term in no way implies second-class, as the category includes some of the most delightful vehicles on the market. Often referred to as campervans, Class Bs are the shape and size of large vans, but with smart, compact living space provided instead of seated rows.

Class Bs and smaller motorhomes are a perfect way to explore the world by yourself or in a couple. Basically, anywhere you can take a car, you can take one of these – without worrying about manoeuvrability, wheelbases, or height and weight restrictions.

Here we have selected just a handful of the campervans and motorhomes especially designed for couples on the move.

Carado CV 540

Compact and beautifully made, the Camper Van 540 from Carado is a double delight.  A great general run-around for the family, ideal for work and shopping, this German-built gem also excels as a comfortable and well-equipped home-from-home.

Despite its modest dimensions, the 540 houses a luxurious double bed, from which you can admire whichever scenic landscape you chose as home for the night. With its superbly-designed kitchen, bathroom and surprisingly spacious living area, the 540 packs an awful lot into its compact frame.

Beyond the abundant creature comforts on board the Grand Canyon, its Mercedes chassis and rear-wheel drive provides the power and stamina to go wherever you want, whenever you want.
