If you are shopping for the best 4 berth motorhome, there is a huge selection of makes, models and layouts for you to choose from. The Practical Motorhome Awards 2022 are to help you narrow down your search for a 4 berth motorhome. We have worked tirelessly to judge the best 4 berth motorhome, as well as revealing our shortlisted contenders, and our other top recommendations from recent years.

Whatever your priorities when shopping for your ideal motorhome, whether you want something compact and easy too manoeuvre, or the ultimate in luxury and spaciousness, there’s a ‘van on this list that could be ideal for you.

There is also something for all budgets, and many of the motorhomes below have flexible kit packages that you can add on to make sure you’re getting the specification that you want, without paying for kit that you don’t need.

The winner of the best 4 berth motorhome is…

Auto-Trail Grand Frontier GF88

  • MTPLM 5000kg
  • MIRO 4000kg
  • Price: £106,801

This motorhome’s understated style and supremely comfortable lounge proved a winning formula in a hard fought category. The well-lit lounge has a Heki rooflight, big windows, four spotlights, strip lights under the lockers and plenty of ambient lighting.

We also liked the smart and generous kitchen worktop which is so convincing, it’s easy to believe that it’s slate. There’s a large island bed and the bedroom is well-lit, with a rooflight, large windows and LEDs. The dropdown bed is also large and comfortable with easy access and spotlights for reading.

It sits on an Al-Ko chassis with a standard Fiat Ducato cab, but unlike many Continental vehicles, you can climb into the driver’s seat via a driver’s door on the ‘correct’ side – a feature well received by all. We like the overall design which is well thought out and tastefully done.

Although there are only two travel seats as standard, you have have two travel seats that fold out from under the settees added as an option.

Also on the shortlist for the best 4-berth motorhome are…

Adria Matrix 600 SL Axess

Measuring just under 7m, this motorhome is relatively compact, but the inside is roomy and spacious; it’s cleverly designed. The bedroom area in particular is impressive with super comfortable beds and excellent lighting. Build quality is good throughout and there’s a large garage.

Bailey Adamo 69-4

The kitchen area of the Bailey Adamo 69-4

A Ford Transit-based coachbuilt, the 4-berth 69-4 provides a European-style layout while retaining features that have proved popular with UK buyers. Smart and comfortable facing parallel sofas sit behind the cab seats, both of which swivel and there’s plenty of room for multiple occupants to relax and dine.

Price: £62,999

Elddis Autoquest 150

The living area of the Elddis Autoquest 150

Clever design gives this compact island-bed layout a feeling of light and space. With the island bed pushed back into its daybed position, there is plenty of room to move around at the rear. Not having the 95-litre fridge and freezer near the door helps to enhance the feeling of space in the kitchen.

Price: £51,969

Adria Matrix Supreme 670SL

A stylish, fixed single-bed four-berth, the Matrix includes a drop-down bed which fits snugly into the ceiling. The central washroom is split across the ‘van, with a sizeable shower on the offside and the generous beds are both 2.0m long. The garage at the rear is tall enough to hold bikes.

Price: £75,895

Benimar Tessoro 483

The cabin area of the Benimar Tessoro 483

A smart look and Continental styling make this four berth an attractive model. It includes a sizeable bathroom with separate shower, large kitchen work top surface and large L shape lounge with free standing table. There’s a drop-down bed and an excellent garage which is very spacious.

There are some standout 4 berth motorhomes from recent years – our team of experts have rounded them up here.

  • Price £49,805
  • Berths 4
  • Travel seats 4
  • MTPLM 3500kg
  • Length 7.32m
  • Width 2.39m

As winner of our Best Budget Motorhome Award, the Swift Edge 494 is a cleverly designed starter motorhome, perfect for first timers. With an island bed at the rear and an overcab bed at the front, it sleeps four comfortably, but would also work well for couples that may want to use that overcab area for extra storage.

While it may not have high-end finishes, this entry-level ‘van has plenty of kit, and the whole motorhome feels classy and more luxurious than you’d expect from the price tag.

BUY IF… You’re looking for a great value ‘van with plenty of space for 4

PROs:
Island bed
Reasonable payload

CONs:

  • Price £87,800
  • Berths 4
  • Travel seats 4
  • MTPLM 3500kg
  • Length 7.54m
  • Width 2.35m

This high-end A-class has plenty of attractive features for those with a healthy budget, and a long list of optional extras that you can add on to create your ideal motorhome.

It impressed our Motorhome of the Year Awards judges so much that it scooped the award for Best Innovation.

Based on the Mercedes Sprinter, this ‘van has a large rear island bed and a drop-down double over the lounge area. The central kitchen is well-equipped and makes an efficient use of space, and the washroom, across the centre of the ‘van, should be plenty large enough.

BUY IF… You’re looking for a high-end motorhome that you can tailor to become the ‘van of your dreams.

PROs:
Feeling of space
Design innovation
A number of options and upgrades

Basin a little shallow in the washroom

  • Price £53,000
  • Berths 4
  • Travel seats 4
  • MTPLM 3599kg
  • Length 6.35m
  • Width 2.05m

Dreamer, a sub-brand of Rapido, has brought to the UK market an impressive van conversion, based on a Fiat Ducato. It’s an impressive offering, with a spacious rear lounge, midships kitchen and washroom, and a front dinette.

The washroom in particular has some clever design – a system called Modul’Space – which gives both a generous wardrobe and ample space for showering.

This 4 berth motorhome has both a large double bed that can be made up from that rear lounge, and a comfortable drop-down double above the front dinette. Quite a feat in such a compact motorhome. As such, it’s no surprise that this ‘van scooped the Best Rear-Lounge Model award in our 2020 Motorhome of the Year Awards.

BUY IF… You’re looking for a cleverly designed van conversion with space for four.

PROs:
Comfortable rear lounge
Separate dining space
Ready for all-season touring

Niesmann+Bischoff Flair 920 EK (2019)

  • Price £160,390
  • Berths 4
  • Travel seats 4
  • MTPLM 7200kg
  • Length 9.27m
  • Width 2.4m

If you’re looking for ultimate luxury and have plenty of cash, this highly polished motorhome could be for you. Built by German manufacturer Niesmann+Bischoff, known for their high-quality finishes, this A-class has an impressive spec level and an enormous payload.

This is more of a luxury apartment on wheels, albeit with a standard enough rear-twin-beds layout and a drop-sown double over the cab providing the four berths. There’s also a very generous garage, and plenty of payload for you to make use of it with extra kit.

The washroom is also generously-sized, complete with an upgraded toilet with holding tank, a huge shower compartment, and the ability to create a full-width washroom with space for dressing. These are just some of the high-end aspects of this motorhome.

BUY IF… You want the ultimate in luxury and are comfortable driving a large vehicle.

PROs:
High-end finishes
Generous kit level
Large payload for all your accessories

CONs:
You’ll need to check your licence restrictions

Bailey Advance 76-2T (2020)

  • Price £47,999
  • Berth 4
  • Travel seats 2
  • MTPLM 3500kg
  • Length 7.57m
  • Width 2.5m

As part of Bailey’s entry-level Advance range, this motorhome is based on a Peugeot Boxer and boasts an end washroom, fixed-single-beds layout that also appears in the mid-market Alliance range.

In terms of kit, for an entry-level ‘van it is pretty impressive given the price tag, and both storage and payload are practical. It would certainly make a very comfortable motorhome for a couple going on tour, and can easily accommodate additional overnight guests, but they’ll have to make their own way to the destination, as there are only 2 belted travel seats.

BUY IF… You’ll be taking occasional overnight guests and want a spacious motorhome for touring as a couple.

PROs:
Great fixed beds
Sideboard with TV sockets

CONs:
Lack of storage for dry foods in the kitchen

Chausson 520 (2020)

  • Price £49,910
  • Berths 4
  • Travel seats 4
  • MTPLM 3500kg
  • Length 5.99

This low-profile offering from Chausson scooped our Best Compact Motorhome award at the most recent Motorhome of the Year Awards. It has taken the hugely popular Maxi Lounge layout and put it into a compact, easy to manoeuvre, sub-6m ‘van.

It offers a layout that feels spacious, and includes a comfortable lounge, a luxurious washroom, a comfortable fixed bed and some thoughtful design touches. The only thing perhaps missing is the large garage that the three other Maxi Lounge models boast.

BUY IF… You’re looking for a spacious feel in a sub-6m ‘van.

PROs:
Clever use of space in a sub-6m’van
High-spec washroom

CONs: Storage is less plentiful than other ‘vans in the range

Mobilvetta Kea P65 (2020)

  • Price £69,996
  • Berths 4
  • Travel seats 4
  • MTPLM 3500kg
  • Length 7.38m
  • Width 2.35m

The combination of continental good looks and UK-friendly touches make this an attractive proposition for those looking for a comfortable 4 berth motorhome. This particular model has twin single beds at the rear, an L-shaped kitchen and a fairly well-equipped offside washroom.

While there’s plenty of storage lockers and a rear garage (complete with mains socket and lighting), you’ll need to be very careful to stick within the 270kg payload.

This is a highly versatile motorhome, with attractive styling and a more powerful 160bhp engine that is a definite bonus.

BUY IF… You’re looking for an attractive coachbuilt with a modern and stylish feel.

PROs:
Lots of storage space
UK-friendly
Plenty of kit as standard

CONs:
Not much payload to play with

Auto-Trail Adventure 65 (2020)

  • Price £58,895
  • Berths 4
  • Travel seats 4
  • MTPLM 3500kg
  • Length 6.36m
  • Width 2.27m

This innovative campervan took the Best Rising Roof Camper award in our 2020 Motorhome of the Year Awards, and for good reason.

Based on the Fiat Ducato, this ‘van has a make-up bed in the rear as well as the roof bed above the front lounge, which makes this a truly versatile camper.

That upper bed has a sprung mattress, reading lights and USB sockets, and it can be sealed off if you want to send the kids to bed early without them being disturbed while you relax in the rear lounge.

The ‘van also has a compact kitchen, which benefits from an underslung gas tank to make the most of potential storage space.

BUY IF… You’re looking for a rising-roof campervan that would suit a young family.

PROs:
Excellent rising roof
Modern washroom

CONs:
Kitchen is a little tight

Bürstner Lyseo 690 G (2020)

  • Price £72,125
  • Berths 4
  • Travel seats 2
  • MTPLM 3880kg
  • Length 6.99m
  • Width 2.32m

Based on the Mercedes Sprinter, the 660 model has a rear French bed and a corner washroom, while the 690 G that we have reviewed has rear fixed single beds. With only 2 travel seats, this may not make a great family ‘van, but it’s great for couples that will have occasional visitors.

Upmarket touches include rear-wheel drive, an elegant cocktail cabinet and a 142-litre slimline fridge. If you don’t go for the optional drop-down double above the lounge, you also benefit from a large rooflight as well as the overcab sunroof.

BUY IF… You’re a couple that will have the occasional visitors, but want an elegant and comfortable ‘van.

PROs:
Elegant and comfortable
Good washroom for this layout

CONs:
Storage limited if travelling with more than two people

Adria Matrix Axess 520 ST (2020)

  • Price £56,865
  • Berths 4
  • Travel seats 4
  • MTPLM 3500kg
  • Length 5.97m
  • Width 2.3m

For a sub-6m motorhome, the Matrix has great space-saving design details, such as the drop-down double bed and the configuration of the 3-burner hob and sink that still allows plenty of workspace.

Even the washroom has been impeccably designed, with a bench toilet, fold-down sink and storage for the ladder for the bed, which doubles as a drying rack.

There are plenty of option packs available to make this your dream motorhome, but this will drive up the price.

BUY IF… You’re looking for top-drawer build quality and clever design in a compact ‘van.

PROs:
For a compact motorhome, it’s very spacious
Drop-down bed saves a lot of space
Cleverly designed washroom

CONs:
All those option packs could be costly
Could do with more kit in the kitchen
