Joa Camp 75 T: motorhome test

Ting-E-Ling, you can hear Joa Camp ringing in your head when the white, boxy structure with the turquoise stickers rolls up. At first glance, it looks like a large ice cream truck. But not like a frozen food delivery truck, more like one of those pretty pastel colored vans that bring with them the promise of a warm and carefree summer day.

There can hardly be a better first impression for a motorhome from a new, young brand. The name does the rest. Joa is the Breton form of “joy” and means, you know, joy. The Pilote daughter made her debut at the Caravan Salon last year.
There are currently six vehicles to choose from: four semi-integrated models between 6.99 meters and 7.39 meters in length and two panel van layouts measuring 5.99 and 6.36 meters, all based on the Citroën Jumper. The Joa were designed as entry-level models in the respective class – with respectable basic equipment, practical options in a package and a lot of good humor.

Joa Camp 75 T: five seats ex works, optionally five sleeping places

That’s him: At 7.39 meters the longest Joa in the model range. And a real family hero. The long giant already offers five belt places ex works. The total of five sleeping places, on the other hand, are optional. In any case, the semi-integrated vehicle has enough space for such a large family. The living room is spacious and feels wonderfully airy. This is not only possible thanks to the cleverly designed floor plan, but also thanks to a headroom of a whopping 2.10 metres.

At first glance, the lengthways single beds in the rear look a bit unusual and more than live up to their name. Between the 72 centimeter wide lying surfaces there is a large shelf, plenty of space to change clothes and space to access the large storage compartments under the beds. In our prototype, the beds remain separate, but in the production model, with an extension and additional cushions, they can be combined to form one large sunbathing area (as is usual).

The white furniture fronts, the light wood decor, the gray upholstery and the turquoise accents make the living room and bedroom look fresh and cheerful, so that you immediately feel like getting behind the steering wheel and roaring to the next sunny sea coast.

Some unusual extras are already on board as standard

He has: a few standard equipment details that are unusual in this entry-level class. These include, for example, the ceramic insert in the toilet, the pressure water pump, the fifth seat belt, the larger 90-liter diesel tank and the 133-liter refrigerator. The list of possible options is manageable. The most important ones, such as the reversing camera, gas pressure regulator, multimedia system or 16-inch rims, can be booked via three packages (chassis, body, extra).

Yeah Camp 75T

Great feel-good factor: Big Joa doesn’t lack bright windows, skylights and daylight.


Our test car was equipped with the electric fold-down bed (1290 euros). If you want the larger Truma Combi 6E and a heated waste water tank for winter camping, you have to pay another 800 and 300 euros. On our first tour to wintry Tyrol, the Joa also cut a fine figure with the standard Combi 4. The semi-integrated model only lacks heating air outlets on the rear beds.

On test: Joa Camp 75 T


While the living area heats up quite quickly, it takes a little while for the warm air to reach the back. But the skis can dry well in the heated rear garage. But when the frost guard jumps out in cold temperatures, things get tricky. The small switch is inaccessible under the floor of the storage space under the right rear bed.

The feel-good speed is around 115 km/h

This is how he drives: Tall Joa is naturally not a speeder. However, the Citroën Jumper does its job reliably and remains unobtrusive in our test course. But the long overhang is noticeable during windy motorway journeys. The fairly wide and high, boxy structure provides noticeable wind resistance.

The comfortable speed of the Joa 75T is around 115 km/h, far from the theoretical top speed. This means that the Frenchman with the 140 hp diesel (800 euros) still has enough reserves for overtaking and for mountainous stages.
