Of course there are some compromises, just as you find in any motorhome.
The truth is, the Wellhouse Terrier Lux-XL falls somewhere between a camper van and a full-on high-top. But that might just be where its appeal lies.
It’s car-like enough for everyday use, and offers sufficient facilities to allow you only to consider visits to the shower block as an absolute necessity.
But watch this space for an even bigger version, with more space (including headroom), a full washroom and more.
If you can’t wait, call Wellhouse Leisure and ask about Project Giant.
But, in conclusion, this is a very neat two-berth that offers just a bit more than a standard camper van – the Lunar takeover should mean increased production, too.
Just check you’re OK with the headroom, the lack of a shower and the bed set-up, or wait for the arrival of big sister.

For two, it’s a refreshingly different floorplan on a manageable footprint
The cab is comfy and well equipped
It is compact, but has a toilet

It’s quite dark inside – and the headroom won’t be enough for some
Despite having a toilet, there’s no shower
You could say that Wellhouse Leisure has moved on to bigger things since its Terrier won the Best Rising-Roof Camper gong at our Motorhome of the Year Awards in 2014 (not least being taken over by Lunar).
The original Terrier has spawned a handful of stablemates – long-wheelbase, Sport and the positively outrageous V-Sport variants – as well as this, the Lux-XL.
Positively two-berth, this is a high-top with a roomy floorplan that offers a relatively large amount of space.
You can thank the rear settee for that, and the fact that the kitchen wraps around the rear, with a toilet room in the offside corner.

Beyond that open lounge, the kitchen unit is angled at its leading edge, enhancing the feeling of space.
There are 230V and 12V sockets in the former and in the kitchen.
You get a useful amount of worktop either side of the sink, a Smev two-burner hob set across the back and a Dometic extractor above.
Under the hob is a Waeco compressor fridge – space is tight, so it’s only a 40-litre model, but it’s above a floor locker, making it easier to access.
In this example, there’s a Smev grill, a £300 option.
The locker below is tall and not very deep (the wheelarch intrudes), so it might be suitable for bottles and so on.
Adjacent to the end kitchen, the toilet room has a Dometic swivel-bowl loo, with cassette access via the back door.
Storage is limited to an overhead locker. Access to the loo can be a bit tricky when the bed is made up.
The bed size in this Wellhouse Leisure motorhome starts at 1.60m x 1.26m, but you can extend the swivelled cab seats to 2.01m – the front squabs can be set flat and level.
