In Europe, companies such as Camperiz from Spain are converting the Dacia Jogger into a compact camper. As an RV, this small van has several advantages. First and foremost, the vehicle is reasonably priced, and it has adequate interior space. The combination is ideal for those looking for a low-cost motorhome for weekend getaways in the wilderness.
On the outside, nothing distinguishes Camperiz’s work on the Dacia Jogger from the stock van. An optional roof box expands the storage capacity of the rig.
The interior is where this little van transforms into a useful camper for a weekend away. A small refrigerator, sink, and portable gas stove are among the features. A 100-amp auxiliary battery and a 3.17-gallon (12-liter) fresh water tank are included for off-grid use. The rear seating and cargo areas fold down to form a folding bed with a removable mattress. If you intend to take this van camping in cold weather, a small heater is an option.
When you arrive at your camping location, the vehicle has two folding outdoor chairs and a matching table.
The Dacia Jogger by Camperiz is powered by a 99-horsepower engine that runs on either gasoline or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) (74 kilowatts). It is linked to a six-speed manual transmission. The interior of the vehicle includes an 8-inch infotainment screen.
In Spain, the Dacia Jogger by Camperiz costs 23,295 euros ($23,171 at current exchange rates). There are several optional upgrades available to raise the price. Aside from the aforementioned enhancements, customers can add a 150-watt, 230-volt inverter, an outdoor tent, a ski rack, a surfboard carrier, a water heater, and a bike rack.
The Jogger, like other Dacia vehicles, will not be available in the United States anytime soon. Instead, think of this rig as an entry-level camper in the European market for buyers who don’t necessarily want to build an RV from the ground up.
