Many of us are planning Easter holiday breaks either in the UK or Europe.

We recommend the following camper vans in our range of marques available:

Best Camper Vans To Buy?

Volkswagen has recently re-vamped its camper van range. The introduction of the Transporter T6.1 platform to the commercial vehicle line-up has seen the iconic California camper van get a make over too. Now available in ‘Ocean’ and ‘Coast’ versions, the California is kitted out with efficient engines, high quality interior fittings, all the latest infotainment and high tech driver assistance and safety features.

If you’ve always longed for a ‘veedub’ camper, then you might want to choose the retro two-tone paint option. We have VW camper vans for sale in our dealership in Sussex.

What’s It Like Inside A Camper Van?

You might think that space is limited, but the Volkswagen California has been developed over 60 years, and the experts at VW have used every inch of space effectively to give you a really comfortable home from home.

An elevating roof allows you more head room when you’ve parked up. The California can sleep 4 people comfortably.

When it’s time to eat, the fully fitted kitchen on board houses a cool box, sink and stove unit. There’s also a camping table and chairs which can be set up outside or stowed away neatly when not in use.

We Need More Space

That’s not a problem. Volkswagen have just launched the Grand California in two sizes. This is even bigger than the Ocean and Coast models and can sleep two adults, two children and has a bathroom on board. Having a toilet, shower and sink included makes the freedom of the road even easier.

But that’s not all, an external temperature-controlled shower, touch-pad control of lighting, water and battery levels, dual fuel heating, optional roof mounted air conditioning , optional solar panels and TV satellite dish mean that all your home comforts travel along with you.

How Easy Is It To Drive A Camper Van?

The latest versions of our Volkswagen California and Grand California have plenty of technology to help you. Think front and rear parking sensors, crosswind assist to keep you stable in high winds, lane assist and adaptive cruise control.

I Need My Tunes

Don’t worry, the VW campers have intelligent mobile online services, touchscreens, integrated SIM cards, USB type C ports, smartphone integration, Bluetooth, DAB+ radio and ‘We Connect’ gives you media streaming, emergency call systems and cloud-based personalisation. You’ll be fine!
