Everyone should be able to enjoy a motorhome — and especially with a partner, family member or friend. And there’s an old saying: two is company, three is a crowd.
In this article, I reveal the best motorhomes for couples on the market available right now, from brand new to still great second-hand models.
I’ve tried to be all-encompassing with our list here. And so, you’ll find the best small motorhomes for couples that share at least one of these features:
So let’s jump right in:
At number one spot is the Auto Sleeper Nuevo EK. This motorhome is what most people would class as the traditional small 2-berth motorhome. It is low profile. And the lounge area consists of two long bench seats that can be folded out into a large double bed.
The ‘EK’ in the title stands for “End Kitchen”. It has an oven and grill, a fridge, and usually four hob burners. The rear of the kitchen also has a workspace with a microwave above it.
And in the back corner is a washroom with a toilet, sink and shower. Making the Auto Sleeper Nuevo — in our opinion — one of the best 2-berth motorhomes with a shower and toilet available to buy in the UK.
This motorhome can be driven on a standard car licence. A new model might cost around £60,000. But you should still be able to pick up an older model, in excellent condition and with low mileage, at a much lower price. A 2010 model will be under £30,000 for example.
Check out our video review of a 2008 model we purchased recently:
The Elddis Accordo Prestige 135 is one of the best compact motorhomes on the market. It is a dealer special 3-berth and comes with four belted seats.
At just under 6-metres, it’s the smallest model on the list. It’s nice and compact and can be driven on a standard car licence — you should be able to slot it into a standard British parking space, length-wise at least. This model has two forward-facing seats (that can swivel around) with seatbelts at the front, along with a small table.
This model is popular with couples because there are essentially two lounge areas. The table at the front can be used as a lounge, and the same space can also be used as a single bed. The rear lounge area consists of two bench seats and a table.
In the middle of the motorhome is a fitted kitchen on one side, and a washroom with a shower and toilet on the other.
You can easily pick up a 2015 model with low mileage for much cheaper than the ‘new’ price. Here’s an example of a 2015 model we purchased:
This beautiful 2 berth fixed bed motorhome has a similar layout to the Nuevo EK above. For example, in that it has two front bench seats that form into a double bed, an end kitchen and a corner washroom.
The length of the model (just shy of 6.5 metres) makes it noticeably roomier in comparison to other 2-berth motorhomes with a similar layout.
You can buy a great 2014 model for under £35,000. So if you’re happy to have one a bit older, you can pick up a great deal.
Check out our review of a 2018 model we purchased, with lots of extras included:
The Auto-Sleeper Kingham is probably our favourite 2-person campervan motorhome. This model has a French bed at the rear, so there is no need to set one up every night.
There is also a lounge area at the front including a long bench seat — and two seats from the cab which can swivel around. There is a fitted kitchen area in the middle and in the far corner. And there is a washroom with a sink, toilet and shower.
The Auto-Sleeper Kingham can be driven on a regular driving licence and is built on the Peugeot Boxer 2.2 HDI engine.
You can buy a great 2015 model for under £40,000. This is significantly cheaper than the new-model price, leaving over plenty of spare change for some trips away.
Check out our review of a 2020 model we purchased. Although please note that the model in our video features an engine that has been upgraded up to 150bhp:
The Swift Bolero 722 FB might be a 4-berth — but it’s just perfect for couples because of the layout. At the front of the motorhome are two belted swivel seats. Just behind the seats is a lounge area with two long bench seats, with space for a table to stand in between.
In the middle of the motorhome is a fitted kitchen with an oven and grill, a four-hob burner, sink, microwave, and a large fridge-freezer. Towards the rear is a fixed French bed, and at the very back is a full-width bathroom with a toilet, sink and separate shower.
The Swift Bolero 722 FB is 7.71 metres in length and I think it is the ideal tourer for couples. It would definitely be a model I’d like to drive own — once the kids have grown up and flown the nest.
Please note, however, that this model has a slightly heavier Maximum Authorised Mass — meaning you will need a Category C1 to drive it. (Check out our motorhome driving licences and the law guide for more information.)
You can pick up a 2014 model for around £40,000 — which is significantly cheaper than if you bought it new. Check out our video review on it here:
The Carthago Liner I53 is a luxury 2-berth motorhome like no other. I’ve been careful so far to only mention models that are affordable to most people.
But this one is so gorgeous I couldn’t resist. If I had a spare £122,000 lying around, this is exactly what I would be spending it on. (The price quickly jumps to £140,000 if you add any extras.)
As you’d expect with a Carthago, the build quality is exceptional — and it looks stunning both inside and out. Storage-wise it’s impeccable. There’s a double floor with room for lots of additional storage options. Plus a lot of clever compartments positioned throughout.
At the front, there is an electric drop-down bed just above the cab. And just behind that is a toilet area and a separate shower room with a beautiful waterfall shower.
Moving towards the rear there is a very spacious kitchen with lots of built-in extras available. The rear of the Carthago I53 has, for me, probably the most impressive lounge I have ever seen in a motorhome, it’s almost a full wrap-around lounge with a large flatscreen TV — and a part of the lounge also extends at the simple touch of a button!
Beyond this, at the very rear is a large garage underneath the lounge area.
It really is just a motorhome you have to see for yourself, here is a walk around video from a recent Motorhome & Caravan Show at the NEC.
I’ve listed above some of my favourite motorhomes that should suit couples ideally. I’ve tried to be all-encompassing here, but this article only serves as an introduction.
