If you are looking for a motorhome under 7m (seven metres), you have come to the right place, as the Practical Motorhome Awards 2022 are here to help. We have worked tirelessly to use our decades of industry experience to judge the best motorhome under 7m, which we reveal here, as well as the shortlisted contenders.
Making our list are models from some of the biggest brands out there, including Auto-Sleeper, Adria, Pilote and more.
You can find out more about the various manufacturers out there in our round-up of the best motorhome brands.
The winner of the best motorhome under 7m is…
- Price: £68,700
- MTPLM: 3500kg
- MIRO: 3171kg
- Shipping length: 6.63 m
There’s much to commend this comfortable and bright van which was a popular choice among our judges, all of whom liked the spacious lounge area and excellent washroom. The rear lounge is extra comfortable, with armrests and corner headrests on the settees.
A huge Heki and three windows let in plenty of daylight, and at night there are no fewer than eight spotlights. We also appreciated the one touch-sensitive LED in the ceiling, and ambient light above the lockers.
The side kitchen is also well lit, with a large window, a second Heki, the sunroof over the cab, and two LEDs and a strip light under the overhead locker. And what about that central washroom? It screams quality and features a swinging partition that you open out to create more room for a separate shower cabinet. It’s not surprising to see this van made it onto our best motorhome for 2022 round-up.

We also shortlisted the following for best motorhome under 7m…
There are some other standout models on the market that made the shortlist – we round them up here.
- Price: £62,500
- Berth: 2
- MTPLM: 3500kg
- MiRO: 2805kg
- Shipping length: 6.26m
There’s a lot like to like about this ultra compact low-profile model, not least the drop-down bed and huge end washroom. A two-berth model, it provides an extremely comfortable and adaptable living space, and the washroom, complete with skylight and stylish shower hidden behind a smart-looking partition, is a real winner.
The practical addition of two foldout travel seats means you could easily use this for day-to-day use too.
A bright lounge – always nice to see when there’s a drop-down bed – comes with a sunroof and 14 LEDs, but it’s worth noting there are no spotlights.
The kitchen includes a two-burner hob, along with a combined oven and grill. A clever touch is the cubbyhole that can be found beneath the corner cupboard. In here, you can find a socket that can be used for something like a small kettle.
Full review: Pilote 626D Evidence
- Price: £62,895
- Berth: 3
- MTPLM: 3500kg
- MiRO: 2937kg
- Shipping length: 6.99m
It may be compact, but the SC Supreme is spacious enough and features a large garage and a sunroof. This 2-berth model has four seats and comes in a silver body with a modern interior.
The kitchen has a high standard spec, complete with a good-sized sink, combined oven and grill, plus an extractor fan and an 84-litre fridge. You will also find a three-burner hob.
Despite being only 6.99m long, you still get a split washroom – Adria has even found room for two drainage holes.
The whole rear bedroom area is also really comfortable and has an island bed.

Chausson Exclusive Line 660
- Price: £57,890
This new model includes a front lounge geared around a space where you can house a 32-inch TV – or you can use it for extended family get-togethers. Then at the back the kitchen leads straight back to a garage with external access – perfect for bikes.
- Price: £61,100
This compact low-profile with special Fiat chassis has an electrically height-adjustable central bed and the living room converts to single occasional berth. It’s a bright and comfortable model with smart design touches and modern styling.
Itineo PC640 Spirit Edition
- Price: £47,600
It may be one of the ‘Cosy’ range, but there’s plenty of room in the PC640 due to its good design and layout. Highlights include the electric drop down bed and large rear bathroom. Friends and family will also enjoy the spacious dining area.
Rimor Seal 12P
- Price: £52,495
There are no fewer than six travel seats in this four-berth, so your kids could bring along extra friends for the day or to camp outside. In just 6.48m, there’s still room for a fixed adult bed and a separate shower too!
