We are looking to upgrade our camper and I’m considering the auto sleeper kingham. My hubby thinks the bed will be too small, what other vans compact Motorhomes do people recommend? I like the idea of another panel van as I do all the driving. However, hubby thinks for what we would pay we should go for something bigger. We travel to Europe a couple of times a year. I think we’d use something more if we had more internal space. Definitely want a fixed bed/s.

What sort of price range are you looking at?
We have a Carthago Compactline on order, hardly any bigger than a PVC but loads of space inside masses of storage including a big garage.

Hi and welcome to FUN. (y) The Kingham is a nice Van, how tall is your husband and what side does he sleep, if he sleeps on the left then he should be fine.
Thanks, he sleeps on the left. We will definitely go and see one when we are back from our next trip. 🙏

Thanks for this, definitely one for us to look at! Happy to say that this time our budget isn’t an issue. Just want to feel that it’s worth the upgrade but without having a monster 😂

I was advised once to buy the smallest van/MH you are comfortable to live in, the smaller you have the more places you can go.

If the guy who got stuck down a side street in Spain had had a smaller van then all would have been well, or he would have got stuck further down, we shall never know.

Thoroughly agree!! It's the same as cameras - the best one is the one you've got with you, if it's too big you'll have left it at home.

We went from a 5.4m Ducato PVC to a 6m coachbuild. It feels three times bigger inside. We don't have to take turns standing up. Much more comfortable when it's dark, cold and pee'ing it down.

But it is more difficult to drive in the UK due to the width. Urban streets with parked cars mean you have to stop and wait far more often. Single track is more of a faff. But it is doable.

In Europe, it's absolutely not an issue. I'm never stressed by the size once I'm the other side of the tunnel.
