If you’re looking around for the best van conversion for under £50,000, you’ve come to the right place, as we’re revealing our top pick at the Practical Motorhome Awards 2022, as well as our other top recommendations.
The winner of the best van conversion under £50,000 is…
Carado CV600 Edition 15
- Price: £47,960
- MIRO: 2821kg
- MTPLM: 3500kg
The raising roof is an option on all Edition 15 camper vans this year, brought out to celebrate the German company’s 15th anniversary. It is as superior raising roof too, as it includes a double bed on slats, its own roof light, a goose neck light complete with a USB port, and tent fabric that can be completely opened at the front.
The Edition 15 part of the set up gets you all sorts of goodies too at a knock-down price, including alloy wheels, an awning, not to mention a more powerful 140-bhp engine. You could go for the smaller CCV540 model, but this van at just under 6m gives you that little bit of extra room, and yet you still get change from £50,000.
The other recommended van conversions under
Sunlight Cliff 600 RT
Sunlight claims the roof bed in its new RT models is the largest on the market, measuring 2.06 x 1.43m. With a telescopic ladder, a 12V socket and a reading light, it certainly makes for a comfy upstairs bedroom.
Bilbo’s Nexa SL
Bilbo’s has been converting vans since the 1970s and has built up a loyal following among motorcaravanners who value reliability and comfort. This new model with its end toilet adds necessary comfort too.
Price: from £46,950
Joa Camp 63T
The longer of the two van conversions in the new Citroen-based budget range from the Pilote Group features fixed single beds in the rear. Built on the same assembly lines as Pilote, it’s at a very keen price.
