Overall, this is a really stylish motorhome, and it’s got a keen price tag, too – it was a worthy winner in our most recent Motorhome of the Year Awards, taking the Best Luxury Motorhome Under 3500kg category win.
PRACTICAL MOTORHOME SAYS…
Internally, the P67 probably works the best of all the new Kea P motorhomes. There’s more space in the lounge, better storage and a great rear bed, even if it is a transverse example (which means that one occupant would have to climb over the other if they need to use the loo at night).
The position of that toilet in the washroom might prove a bit of a minus point, but otherwise this is a well-priced motorhome that feels both spacious and luxurious.

Comfortable, sociable living space; separate shower cubicle; good price tag
Cheap looking cab dashboard; limited TV positioning
Mobilvetta’s Kea P low-profiles now have habitation doors on the correct side for the UK. But because of its fixed single beds, the Kea P65 is 7.38m long – not ideal to fit in your driveway, or a parking space.
Now, the same kind of motorhome is available in a shorter length – if you don’t mind a transverse bed. The Kea P67 comes in at 6.99m. It has a similar exterior, with skirting locker and an external barbecue point and shower.
With a high-gloss table that can be rotated between the nearside settee and the L-shaped settee on the other side with the two travel seats, it really is a sociable space
Step into the lounge and the first advantage of this layout is apparent. Although the P67 is nearly 40cm shorter than the P65, it doesn’t have to make way for lengthways single beds, so there is more room for the lounge.
That means you get a full settee on the nearsde, not just a perching seat. With a high-gloss table that can be rotated between here and the L-shaped settee on the other side with the two travel seats, it really is a sociable space. And it is well lit, thanks to the sunroof, LED lights and blue ambient lighting.
The Truma Combi 6 heater in the Winter Pack, usually an optional extra but for Marquis (the sole UK importer) included as standard, should keep things nice and toasty.
The TV bracket and sockets are located by the door, which means the TV can only be viewed comfortably from the cab seats. And these sockets are the only ones in the lounge area.
The central kitchen is on the offside. The oven is above the fridge and above that is a large open shelf. The rest of the kitchen is much like that of the P65: a dual-fuel hob, extractor fan, and L-shaped work surface with a trapdoor for a bin – but also has a socket, splashbacks and a rail for a kitchen roll.
Storage underneath the worktop includes two large pull-out shelves with a hidden compartment behind them, and two drawers and a locker with a retainer under the hob.
The washroom is on the nearside, so the access hatch for the toilet cassette is on the awning side – not ideal. But inside you still get a separate shower compartment. The tray only has one drainage hole, but there’s a good riser, an LED light and a rack for shampoos.
The washroom itself has an opaque window behind the toilet. It includes a see-through salad-bowl-style basin and a large, lit mirror. There are cupboards above the toilet and below the basin.
The transverse double, accessed by ladder and shut off with a curtain, could be a real oasis, with two spotlights, USBs and a headboard. There are also two speakers, and a set of TV sockets.
The drop-down bed comes down easily and, thanks to the extended lounge, doesn’t obstruct the door.
Although some of the area under the side settee is taken up with electrics, there’s a separate compartment that could serve as a boot locker. The space under the travel seats is taken up with the water tank, but you get two large unshelved overhead lockers here.
There are two wardrobes – the one to the left of the ladder as you climb into bed is a good size. Behind the ladder is another cupboard that can be shelved, or another hanging space.
There are two more overhead lockers above the bed, and some cubbyholes, while on the other side of the ladder are a couple of magazine holders.
Finally, there is that huge garage at the back. It’s not accessible from the inside, but it is 1.15m high.
