If you have the resources for a ‘van that comes to over £80,000, you’re in for a treat as this is the very top end of the market. You’ll be rewarded with spacious living areas, state-of-the-art fixtures and fittings, along with superb styling and build quality. However, by the time you’re spending so much money, you’ll want to make sure you get the best luxury motorhome.

To help you find the right model for you, the Practical Motorhome Awards 2024 are here to help. We’ve rebranded a category that was previously the best motorhome over £80,000 to the best luxury motorhome as we think it’s a better reflection of the market. In this guide, you’ll be able to see our top picks for the 2024 season. With spacious living areas and fixed beds, these luxury motorhomes offer extra comfort and well-equipped kitchen areas, along with thoughtful decoration.

You’ll also be able to see our top picks from last year, featuring some of the best motorhome manufacturers, including Burstner, Adria and more. You can also take a look at our best budget motorhome guide to see more budget-friendly options on the market.

This year, we’ve picked out the Le Voyageur Eterna 7.0 GJF as the best luxury motorhome on the market. There was a lot to impress us, with the ‘van, which we also shortlisted for the best motorhome for families category, providing plenty of sophisticated touches that we think just make touring better.

The best luxury motorhome is:

Le Voyageur Eterna 7.0 GJF
The Le Voyageur Eterna 7.0 GJF

Le Voyageur Eterna 7.0 GJF

  • Price: £122,150
  • Berths: 4
  • MTPLM: 3500kg
  • MiRO: 3042kg
  • Payload 458kg
  • Length 7.05m
  • Width 2.24m

Who says luxury can only ever be for retired couples? Not Le Voyageur, that’s for certain. This new model, which can sleep four in a comfortable 7m of length, still manages to have a MTPLM of 3500kg. So anyone can drive it, even younger adults with kids (if they are lucky enough to have the money).

It’s part of Le Voyageur’s new Eterna range, which replaces the old Classic range. This still has a Fiat cab, but is now built on Al-Ko’s STC chassis. That has a lower centre of gravity, so you should find driving on more off-road adventures easier. But perhaps more importantly the new chassis has enabled the designers to give you the luxury of having a completely flat floor inside. No more screams and bumps (for you or the kids) from tripping over steps.

Le Voyageur Eterna 7.0 GJF lounge
The lounge of the Le Voyageur Eterna 7.0 GJF

You get two large single beds in the rear, a drop down bed up front, and underneath it a very airy front lounge with settees that, being face-to-face, are better suited for family gatherings. Both of these easily convert to seats when you are travelling.

The shortlisted models for the best luxury motorhome:


Adria Supersonic 780DL

Adria Supersonic 780DL

  • Price: TBC
  • Berths: 4
  • MTPLM: 4500kg
  • MiRO: TBC
  • Payload: TBC
  • Length: 7.83m
  • Width: 2.31m

This 7.8m-long model is the latest addition to Adria’s Mercedes-based Supersonic range of A-classes, launched last season. It offers those who prefer fixed single beds in the back the option of having a front lounge with face-to-face settees as well. In between you will find a roomy washroom spread across the van, and a well-equipped kitchen. As with all the Supersonic models, it has a super stylish modern interior.

What might tempt you particularly this season, however, is the optional extras that are now coming with this and all other Supersonic models. These include a roof-mounted awning with dimmable LED lights, a waste water disposal camera, air suspension cab chairs and a ceramic toilet.

Laika Kreos H5109

  • Price: £157,000
  • Berths: 4
  • MiRO: TBC
  • Payload TBC
  • Length 7.89m
  • Width 2.32m

While the main focus for the Italian brand this season has been upgrading its more budget-focused Kosmo range, it has left room to introduce this new A-class model into its upmarket Kreos range.

And what a new addition this fixed single beds model is, from the distinctive sloping decals on the very modern look of the interior, with grey upholstery and charcoal splashback contrasting with a warm wood colour and a minimalist white kitchen worktop. With Alde heating too, and excellent well-organised storage spaces under the bed, this really is one motorhome with the bella figura, as the Italians would say and it was a deserving winner of the best A-class motorhome title.

Niesmann+Bischoff Flair 880

Niesmann + Bischoff Flair 880

  • Price: TBC
  • Berths: 4
  • MiRO: TBC
  • Payload: TBC
  • Length: 8.87m
  • Width: TBC

German brand Niesmann + Bischoff has become synonymous with ultimate luxury, and the latest addition to its Flair range is more than likely to keep that going. At 8.87m, it is in fact a slightly shorter version of last season’s Flair 920, but still based on an Iveco Daily and with the same room divisions.

That means a huge bed at the back, an apartment-style washroom in the middle, and a large front lounge with side kitchen. Extra features include a fridge and freezer that is incorporated into the wall unit, and even a dishwasher.

There is also room for up to six 100Ah lithium batteries, a 370-litre fresh water tank and a 250-litre waste water tank in the ‘van that we picked out as the best motorhome for full-time living.

Such luxury of course does not come cheap, but if you’ve got it, why not flaunt it?

The best luxury motorhomes at the Practical Motorhome Awards 2023 – the models we shortlisted for the best motorhome over £80,000 category:

Burstner Lyseo Gallery TD Harmony Line 689G

The Burstner Lyseo Gallery TD Harmony Line 689G
  • Price: £89,495
  • Berths: 3
  • Payload: TBC
  • MiRO: TBC
  • Length: 6.9m
  • Width: 2.3m

Reason to buy:

  • A real sense of a home on the move

Reason to avoid:

  • Perhaps a little pricey for what is still a low-profile.

Last season the Lyseo Gallery was really just a figment in the Burstner designers’ imagination. With its full launch this year, including in the UK, it is good to know that such a novel design has been set at a price which is just about within the grasp of ordinary mortals. It is nearly £100,000 cheaper than the Hymer Venture S, which uses the same inflatable roof technology, for example.

That roof really does give you the feeling of a two-storey motorhome. It’s much more impressive than a conventional pop-top roof.

For one thing, the bedroom area includes a small table which is big enough to house a laptop. A perfect place to retire to, then, if you need to do a little work. You won’t even have to struggle up a ladder either: there’s a perfectly decent staircase.

Inside the Burstner Lyseo Gallery TD Harmony Line 689G

For another thing, the air pockets in the roof are so effective as insulation that you really get a hushed atmosphere that is conducive for sleep – or work.

We particularly like the 689G model, because the end washroom adds to the sense of luxury.

But if there are more than three of you, the slightly longer (and similarly priced) 649G model includes a rear lounge that is just as cosy.

Adria Supersonic 780DC

Inside Adria Supersonic 780DC
  • Price: £156,690
  • Berths: 4
  • MTPLM: 4500kg
  • Payload: TBC
  • Length: 7.8m
  • Width: 2.32m

Reason to buy:

  • Great spec, classy looks, great storage

Reason to avoid:

  • Quite dark interior

Adria’s first A-class motorhome built on a Mercedes Sprinter is an impressive beast, with an all-silver exterior that includes an attractive slanting back panel with LED Hella Lights. Inside you find an interior that is extremely sophisticated, even if it might be a little on the dark side for some tastes. We are glad that models bound for the UK will come with white locker doors to offset the dark brown of the woodwork, and the dark grey floor.

As you would expect from an Adria motorhome, much use has been made of technology. And that’s not just with the media wall complete with USB ports that greets you as you step in – there are in fact USB ports everywhere you need them in here – but with things like a rear island bed you can turn into a daybed with just the flick of a switch.

The kitchen is well thought out and, like the rest of the van, includes a good amount of storage. In fact the storage situation in general means that for once this is an A-class that could comfortably support a family, not just a couple with occasional add on guests. And everybody travelling will be comfortable.

Coachman Travel Master 545

The Coachman Travel Master 545
  • Price: £122,000
  • Berths: 4
  • MTPLM: 4500kg
  • MiRO: 3850kg
  • Payload: 650kg
  • Length: 8.39m
  • Width: 2.78m

Reasons to buy:

  • Packed with kit, luxurious interior for longer tours

Reasons to avoid:

  • Pricey, requires a C1 driving licence

Okay, so there’s no denying that all of the motorhomes in this category cost a lot of money. But if you’re going to spend a lot of cash on your van, then you want good value – which means a high level of kit and a real feeling of luxury.

The Travel Master range is caravan builder Coachman’s first foray into motorhomes, and we were impressed from the first time we saw it. The island bed 545 is our favourite layout: it’s great for couples on longer tours, but the electrically operated drop-down bed at the front means that you can invite overnight guests if you want, too. There are all the touches that you’d expect in a £120,000-plus motorhome, including sumptuous upholstery, and it’s well winterised to allow you to keep touring all year round.

We also recommend the following best motorhomes over £80,000 from recent years…

Carthago Chic E-line I51 QB 2020


  • Price: £126,180
  • Layout: Rear island bed
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Travel seats: 4
  • MTLPM: 4500kg
  • Length: 8.07m

This stylish A-class was named Best luxury motorhome over 3500kg in our 2020 Motorhome of the Year awards and is a clever combination of sophistication and practicality. It simply oozes luxury, with a popular floorplan that’s now on a Mercedes base.

The 51 QB with island bed layout has always offered style in spades, thanks to its large fixed bed and spacious lounge, but combine it with that Mercedes base and you have an even more tempting prospect.

Offering many features, such as adaptive cruise control, brake assist and crosswind assist, the Sprinter cab is one of the most advanced out there, helping to make every second of your tour that much more comfortable.

It doesn’t come cheap – on the Mercedes base, this model costs more than £119,000. But if you’re looking for a luxurious motorhome, this could be the one for you.

Rapido M96 2020


  • Price: £87,800
  • Layout: Rear island bed
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Travel seats: 4
  • MTLPM: 3500kg
  • Length: 7.54m

The M96 scooped the Best Innovation prize in our Motorhome of the Year Awards 2020, with the judges noting that it’s “packed with clever features that make it a very deserving winner”.

Needless to say, it’s made the right way, with GRP bodywork, Styrofoam insulation and a double floor. Beyond the Mercedes cowl, it’s all on an Al-Ko chassis extension, too. On the road prices start at £87,800, but my guess is, you’re looking at those tempting upgrades and are more likely to budget in excess of £100,000.

The kitchen is space-efficient, thanks to its L-shape and other design aspects; and in the bedroom the wider-than-average double bed is thanks to a cutaway angle to the wardrobes either side. The bed itself has height adjustment of some 30cm should you wish to optimise storage in the garage below. The washroom comprises a shower cubicle on the offside and a toilet room nearside, with the door for the latter combining with sliding panels for privacy.

Upgrades will bump up price considerably

Niesmann+Bischoff Flair 920 EK 2019


  • Price: £160,390
  • Layout: Rear single beds
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Travel seats: 4
  • MTLPM: 7200kg
  • Length: 9.27m

Driving license and wallet at the ready? You’re going to need both for this giant. Most of us will never be able to afford a vehicle like this, but we can all dream! This is no ordinary ‘van – more of a luxury apartment on wheels.

The 920 EK is one of 10 Flairs for this season, with a standard enough rear-twin-beds layout and an electric double ready to glide down from above the cab.The main kitchen is something to behold. There’s a three-ring gas hob set in the ‘mineral’ worktop, with permanent work surface to its right and a sink (inset, with flush-fit loose cover) on the left.

At the back, steps take you up to the single beds. Like the front double, they have Froli springing and cold-foam mattresses, with upper-level lockers to three sides and a Heki rooflight overhead. The washroom is just as good. The shower compartment is huge.

Fantastic engineering and payload

Price will rule most buyers out

Frankia M-Line T7400 QD 2019


  • Price: £105,280
  • Layout: Rear island bed
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Travel seats: 4
  • MTLPM: 5000kg
  • Length: 7.67m

This award-winning German coachbuilt on a Mercedes base looks classy inside and out, and has a spacious, comfortable island bed. Frankia’s M-Line T7400 GD scooped our Luxury Motorhome over 3500kg award this time around, but I think I’ve now found something just as good – sister model the QD. Instead of twin single beds at the back, the QD has a luxurious island double. Either model is two-berth, with belted travel for up to four; otherwise, there’s no floorplan differences.

Throughout the interior, quality is to the fore. The lounge is a bit compromised, despite the extra daylight via the fixed overcab sunroof and wind-up rooflight. Attention to detail prevails in the kitchen. The Dometic hob has three burners, while the sink is inset into the worktop; its covers match the work surface and splash panel. Those covers double up to give extra worktop.

The bed itself sits high, with steps each side for easier access. Reading lights on stalks have USB outlets, and cubbyholes either side of the bed are another great idea. Aft of the kitchen, there’s a shower cubicle nearside, in all-plastic with a cleverly integrated pull-down drying rail, as well as a riser bar, and two plugholes in the smooth floor.

Excellent build quality

There’s no spare – just a repair kit

Carthago Liner-for-two I 53 2019


  • Price: £118,670
  • Layout: Rear lounge
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Travel seats: 2
  • MTLPM: 4500kg
  • Length: 7.83m

Carthago’s Liner-for-two is one of the most luxurious two-berths currently on the market.

The spacious rear lounge can seat six or more people in comfort around the fixed pedestal table. Strictly speaking, this lounge is C-shaped, rather than U-shaped, because it extends around to provide the rearward facing sofa behind the kitchen bar.

You only get a three-burner gas hob with this kitchen – no extra electric hob. But the cast-iron-effect trivets fold up easily for cleaning. The swan-neck tap on the large sink can be extended into a hose, while the sink cover is neatly designed to divide into two – one half doubles up as a chopping board and can be stowed away in a slot under the bar.

The two fixed beds that drop-down over the cab once you fold the seat forward are some of the most comfortable we have ever slept in. They can easily be merged into a double, too. Carthago has even included a hidden dead switch, which you can turn on to stop any children wearing down the battery by playing with the system.

The Liner-for-two can be completely partitioned off on both the front and the rear sides – although the light switches for the shower are on the outer side of the rear door. However, unlike some other A-classes, the space you are left with when you do this is still enormous. In fact, even if you move the door over to shut off the nearside washroom on its own, there is still generous space to move about.

Seems a little top-heavy

Swift Kon-tiki Dynamic 675 2019


  • Price: £146,490
  • Layout: Rear single beds
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Travel seats: 6
  • MTLPM: 7200kg
  • Length: 9.04m

Swift’s latest offering in this luxury range is designed for fans of motorsports and outdoor events, who need to stay connected off-grid. The Dynamic 675 is based on the Iveco Daily, providing a 3.0-litre engine, rear-wheel drive and, in the case of our test model, a 205bhp, eight-speed automatic gearbox. A 180bhp six-speed manual version is also available. Overall MTPLM is 7200kg, and you can fit a motorbike in the capacious rear garage.

The interior is much more like the standard Kon-tiki. But, as you might expect in a ‘van designed for sporting events, the 675 is heavy on electrical connections, with nine mains sockets in here. In the kitchen a four-burner dual-fuel hob sits on top of a Dometic oven with a separate grill. Across the aisle, you get a Dometic fridge that opens both ways, and a microwave on top.

The rear fixed beds can make a double, with four spotlights and a second TV station here. At the very back are two more USB sockets and another mains socket. The overcab bed impressed us. A heavy-duty zippable cloth partition should keep out the light, and you get a choice of lighting colour, two USBs and a roof light. The third double, made from the dinette, requires three infill cushions
