Motor Home Manufacturers in Europe and the UK

This page is about motor home manufacturers in the UK and Europe. You can find information on RV manufacturers in North America here and motor home manufacturers in Australia and New Zealand on this page.

European and UK manufacturers have a distinctive style that comes from having to fit much into a small space. Vehicles in Europe are smaller than the equivalent US-built vehicles in general and this equally applies to the motorhome market.

The advantage this holds is two-fold:

  • vehicles come factory-built as LHD
  • they are small enough to fit our length criteria (less than 8 metres or 26 feet)

There is also a very strong expedition vehicle market operating in German and Austria with brokers working out of Holland. While expedition vehicles are one-step further than poor-road vehicles, there is much to be learnt from their design and build and much that we may adapt.
