As always, make sure you know exactly what type of campervan fits your lifestyle, and always give any vehicle you think of buying a thorough inspection in order to avoid problems later on. This means making sure you inspect the electrical, water and gas systems where applicable, and it may be worth getting a qualified electrician or gas supply expert to give it a thorough check too.
Campervans come in many different shapes, sizes and configurations, so it is vital you understand what type of campervan you require so you do not have any regrets later on. Even though the engine and the mechanicals are typically the same as the panel vans they are based on, you need to take greater care to inspect the additional camping accessories. In this guide, we will take a closer look at some of the best campervans currently available for under £5,000 so you can get an idea of exactly what you can expect to get for your hard-earned money.
1. Peugeot Partner Tepee Micro Camper van
The Peugeot Partner Tepee has enough room to carry five people or sleeping room for two, and Peugeot has done an excellent job in cramming in as much storage space and facilities as possible in the u-shaped rear camping section. There is a twin-burner gas-powered hob that slides out for convenience, and the table drops inside the bed frame and becomes part of a large double bed. There is also plenty of storage underneath the bed. There are air conditioning and on-board electrics too. The rear camper section is completely removable, so the van can be converted to an MPV or used as a van for those runs to the recycling centre.

This three-berth campervan comes with an automatic transmission, has a 2.8 turbo diesel engine, a high roof and is fitted with many facilities, making it ideal for a weekend getaway. Some of the features include solar, gas and electric hookups, a fridge, a table, a gas-powered hob and grill, laminate flooring, plenty of storage space and cupboards. It is also large enough to fit a double ergo-flex mattress. If you are looking to travel across Europe, you will have no problems as this vehicle comes with both European and UK standard electric hook-up leads. This vehicle also comes with an immobiliser and central locking.

In conclusion
Hopefully, this guide has given you some idea regarding what you can expect for £5,000 when it comes to buying pre-owned campervans. However, for the price range, you may need to do some work to get the vehicle roadworthy, as you are likely to be buying a campervan that has already done a lot of touring.
