Motorhomes might be a better suited to off-road use than caravans (at least judging by the Jeep Action Camper recently featured at our sister site, Practical Motorhome), but there are still options for ‘van owners looking for a pitch that’s far from the beaten track. Or campsite.

The usual array of interior options are also provided, including running hot and cold water, shower (albeit of the outdoor variety), portable toilet, air conditioning and the essential generator with supplementary solar panels — there’s unlikely to be a mains hook up where these are ‘vans are designed to go, after all.

Prices range from $5,500 to $15,500 (around £3,400 to £9,800)
