The kitchen is fully kitted out with Thetford ‘K-Series’ combined oven, grill and hob, and Dometic 10 series 153 litre electronic fridge freezer, and we liked the look and comfort of the ceiling mounted mechanically operated Alu-Line transverse drop down double bed.

Measuring over 8 metres this van maximises space and features – a great option.

Also on the shortlist for the best 6-Berth Motorhome are…

Adria Coral XL 670 DK

Best 6 berth motorhome 2022 - Practical Motorhome (4)

  • Price: £67,295

This stylish overcab model certainly looks the part, offering spacious and practical accommodation. There’s a smart panoramic roof window and a neat seating area. We also liked the small but well-equipped kitchen area and comfortable beds.

Elddis Autoquest 196

Best 6 berth motorhome 2022 - Practical Motorhome (5)

  • Price: £52,669

This well-priced 6-berth with electric drop-down bed over the large front lounge has much to recommend it –from the family kitchen, with Thetford enamelled oven, grill and 3-burner gas hob, to the bright rear lounge which makes up into a huge double bed.

Benimar Primero 313

Best 6 berth motorhome 2022 - Practical Motorhome (6)

  • Price: £49,995

Providing six berths and six travelling seats with rear bunk beds and dinette seating to the front, the 313 nevertheless comes in at under £50K. It’s compact, yet looks good, managing to pack a large amount of features in to its 6m length. The bunk beds are particularly comfortable.

The 6 berth motorhomes that we recommend from recent years are…

Our expert panel have been very impressed with the following 6 berth motorhomes:

Swift Edge 486 2020

Best 6 berth motorhome 2022 - Practical Motorhome (7)STAR RATING 4.5 OUT OF 5

  • Price: £50,125
  • Layout: Rear lounge
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Travel seats: 6
  • MTLPM: 3500kg
  • Length: 7.32m

Swift has a strong reputation for value-for-money, family-friendly coachbuilts and the 486 is another winner, scooping the Best Family Motorhome trophy.

Adults are sure to love the rear lounge: it’s a good size, and is surrounded by windows to allow in masses of natural light.

Sizeable kitchens are vital in family-friendly ‘vans. This model scores well here: there’s plenty of work surface to make use of – and a foldaway flap offers even more. The kit list has a Dometic 8 series manual energy selection fridge, combination thermostatic oven, three-burner gas hob and a grill.

The washroom should prove large enough for most families. There’s no separate shower cubicle but there is a handy towel shelf up top, and a small amount of storage in the unit beneath the handbasin.

The rear lounge can be made up into one of the three double beds: it’s the smallest, but they’re all a good size (ranging from 2.14 x 1.31m upwards). One other is made up from the double dinette, with the final bed living in the overcab area.

PROs
Plenty of workspace in kitchen
Layout offers zones for adults and children

CONs
Not the cheapest of 6-berth motorhomes

Bailey Advance 70-62018

Best 6 berth motorhome 2022 - Practical Motorhome (8)STAR RATING 4 OUT OF 5

  • Price: £47,500
  • Layout: End lounge
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Travel seats: 6
  • MTLPM: 3500kg
  • Length: 6.96m

British buyers tend to favour end lounges, and the one in the Bailey Advance 70-6 is a good-sized and comfortable example.

It’s a bright, airy place to spend time, and the trio of windows means you’ll get a good view outside no matter where you sit. Opposite the kitchen is a double dinette, which can seat four; if you’re touring six-up, another table can be set up in the rear lounge to allow you all to eat at once. The dinette is also home to four belted seats – along with the pair in the cab, this means that there’s a belt for every berth.

The kitchen is a great size and has a Thetford Triplex combination oven and grill, with a three-burner hob above. Additional cooking duties are taken care of by the stainless-steel, 800W microwave. There’s also a Dometic 95-litre fridge with detachable freezer section, and a square sink with a drainer and chopping board.

The washroom sits in the centre of this motorhome.There’s no separate shower cubicle, so you’ll need to be happy to make use of a shower curtain to protect the rest of the surfaces from getting wet.

Four of the sleeping berths are in the dinette area – the seats can be made up into a double bed, while another double drops down from above. Both of the beds are comfortable, but the fixed bed is particularly so: it’s made of foam and rests on a sprung base. The final two berths make up from the cushions in that rear lounge

PROs
The nearside kitchen is well proportioned
This ’van has a very inviting end lounge

CONs
The payload might be a bit tight for six

Swift Edge 4762020

Best 6 berth motorhome 2022 - Practical Motorhome (9)STAR RATING 4 OUT OF 5

  • Price: £50,125
  • Layout: coachbuilt overcab
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Travel seats: 6
  • MTLPM: 3500kg
  • Length: 7.32m

The Edge, designed for families, offers five models, and we took an early look at the six-berth 476, one of three overcabs.

On the road for £50,125 might not strike you as ‘budget’. But unless you’re keen and can grab an early Edge with Euro 6b engine – in which case, the 476 would come in at £48,255 – your vehicle will have one of Fiat’s latest Euro 6d engines, which adds vehicle excise duty of £2315.

The double dinette offers belted seating for four, with a short settee nearside. There’s a rather narrow side-fixing table, but there is an extension to slot in and clip on. There’s one small window in the lounge.

In the kitchen, the Edge makes do with a Thetford Triplex cooker (three gas rings, combined oven/grill) and a small Dometic fridge (albeit with removable freezer section). But I appreciate that a lot of cost has been saved here.

The washroom facilities include a tap that extends for showering in an area that’s part-lined. There’s also a swivel-bowl toilet, a high-level shelf and a locker under the basin. The overcab bed is an impressive size, with plenty of headroom. The main sleeping area is at the back, on high-level fixed single beds.

PROs
Feeling of space in rear bed area
Low purchase cost

CONs
Limited kitchen facilities
Limited windows

Sun Living S70 SP2018

Best 6 berth motorhome 2022 - Practical Motorhome (10)STAR RATING 4.5 OUT OF 5

  • Price: £49,625
  • Layout: coachbuilt with rear transverse bed
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Travel seats: 6
  • MTLPM: 3500kg
  • Length: 2.32m

The Sun Living S70 SP – one of the new-look coachbuilts – was the winner of the Best for Innovation category at our 2018 Motorhome of the Year awards.

The internal headroom in the Sun Living S70 SP is an impressive 2.10m, but in the lounge itself, because of the drop-down bed, this reduces to 1.80m – tall people will need to stoop here. There’s a daring colour combination of green, blue and grey, and in terms of materials, a very welcome return to corduroy fabrics.

The designers have made the most of limited space in the L-shaped kitchen by positioning the in-line three-burner hob slightly behind the square sink. Underneath the worktop there are two drawers (one large, one small) next to a Thetford Duplex oven.

The Sun Living S70 SP’s washroom – which also features on other Sun Living coachbuilts – is where the brand’s innovation really shines. And all through the simple inclusion of a tambour door that you can slide away to create space when the washroom isn’t in use. Within the extra space of a coachbuilt, rolling the door away really pays dividends.

At 1.35m wide, the ’van’s transverse rear bed is a little on the narrow side to be the main bed but it is comfy.The drop-down bed is a better size (for a drop-down bed) and is also comfortable.

PROs
The washroom’s slide-away tambour door makes a huge difference to the interior space
We love the internal garage access – and the storage provision

CONs
No dedicated TV point

Swift Kon-tiki Dynamic 675 2019

Best 6 berth motorhome 2022 - Practical Motorhome (11)STAR RATING 4 OUT OF 5

  • Price: £146,490
  • Layout: rear fixed beds
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Travel seats: 6
  • MTLPM: 7200kg
  • Length: 9.04m

Swift’s latest offering in this luxury range is designed for fans of motorsports and outdoor events, who need to stay connected off-grid. The interior is much more like the standard Kon-tiki. But, as you might expect in a ‘van designed for sporting events, the 675 is heavy on electrical connections, with nine mains sockets in here. Our test model featured a full Pullman-style front dinette, with six travel seats, and a sofa on the nearside.

The kitchen benefits from a well-lit workspace. Underneath is a peninsula cupboard. The four-burner dual-fuel hob sits on top of a Dometic oven with a separate grill. Across the aisle, you get a Dometic fridge that opens both ways, and a microwave on top. The cupboard here is a useful location for any TV, too.

There is a step up (with two LED floodlights) to the central washroom, which can be partitioned on both sides. There are no windows, just a roof light. The shower is medium-sized, with one drain hole and a plastic swivel door. But the wardrobe here is large, and opposite are two cupboards and a mirror.

The rear fixed beds can make a double, with four spotlights and a second TV station here. At the very back are two more USB sockets and another mains socket. The overcab bed impressed us. A heavy-duty zippable cloth partition should keep out the light, and you get a choice of lighting colour, two USBs and a roof light. The third double, made from the dinette, requires three infill cushions.

PROs
Capacious rear garage
Underfloor LPG tank

CONs
No cab blinds

Marquis Majestic 196 2018

Best 6 berth motorhome 2022 - Practical Motorhome (12)STAR RATING 4.5 OUT OF 5

(Video) The Practical Motorhome Hymer Van 314 Review

  • Price: £50,495
  • Layout: rear lounge
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Travel seats: 6
  • MTLPM: 3500kg
  • Length: 7.34m

If you want a British-made ’van for a large family, with a great spec and plenty of style, the Marquis Majestic 196 is one to consider. The large windows on all three sides and the rooflight make the lounge feel bright, and there is a well-placed heating vent to keep you cosy.

The kitchen is often where the extras you get in a dealer special come into play, and this Majestic is no exception. A standard Autoquest only has a three-burner gas hob for chefs to make use of, but here you’ll find a dual-fuel four-burner hob and, up above, a microwave, which with Elddis is a £190 option. You have plenty of work space to show off your culinary expertise, especially because you also get an extension flap that opens out by the door. Two sockets nearby should be more than adequate for a kettle and any other gadget you might bring.

You don’t get a separate shower cubicle, either – just a curtain to contain the water from the showerhead located to the left of the basin. However, the designers have been rather clever in positioning the basin over the wheelarch, so the latter doesn’t get in the way – in fact, it could serve as a useful footrest.

The two sofas in the rear lounge pull together, and you then only need one thin infill cushion (which is easily stored in the wardrobe) to make a flat, comfortable bed. You don’t need to remove any cushions from the lounge below before lowering the electrically operated drop-down bed. The third double bed, in the front-lounge area, is a solid affair. You need to lower the dining table to make it, and you also require one large and one thin infill cushion.

PROs
The rear lounge is excellent

CONs
There’s no separate shower cubicle

Auto-Trail Imala 7322018

Best 6 berth motorhome 2022 - Practical Motorhome (13)STAR RATING 4 OUT OF 5

  • Price: £50,380
  • Layout: rear transverse bed
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Travel seats: 4
  • MTLPM: 3500kg
  • Length: 7.26m

This family ’van has a rear transverse bed and wowed our judges in our Motorhome of the Year 2018 awards, taking the best family ’van category win.

The huge front lounge has two facing settees, and the only two travel seats on the standard model are in the cab. Cost options, including a dinette with at least two forward-facing travel seats, start at £825 – well worth it to let you take children or grandchildren on holiday with you.

The quasi-overcab profile gives you lots of headroom, but it’s not the brightest area because there’s only a medium rooflight, and the lockers over the cab limit the size of the sunroof.

In the kitchen, the sink is of such generous dimensions that there’s only an average-sized amount of workspace between it and the four-burner dual-fuel hob. Food storage space in the 732 consists of one tall cupboard between the oven and grill and the 90-litre fridge, a cutlery drawer and one overhead locker – it should prove sufficient for the food of a family of four, though. A microwave is also fitted.

The central washroom isn’t huge, but there’s everything that you could need in here – and it’s good to see a separate shower cubicle.

In the rear bedroom there’s plenty of room to move around the bed, and lots of light comes through two windows and the single rooflight. The front bed makes up easily via slatted platforms. The offside settee is longer than the nearside, so you get a useful perching area if you wake early and want to sit down with a cuppa.

PROs
It’s a luxury layout in a more affordable range
The rear bedroom is a winner
There’s a separate shower cubicle

CONs
The front make-up bed is a peculiar shape
There are no sockets in the lounge
