A home away from home! The iconic California has had a make over on the 6.1 platform. It now has more efficient engines, changed interior fittings, up-to-date infotainment and driver assistance systems, and the latest online mobile services.

This model benefits from motorhome registration, because it has a mini kitchen, and so it is taxed as a motorhome (flat-rate vehicle excise duty).
The iconic 'veedub' camper has always been synonymous with freedom and the open road. Now it's been brought right up to date with the latest in Volkswagen's automotive technology.
The elevated roof can be raised once you are settled in your chosen camping spot. It allows more room to move around the passenger compartment and gives enough room for 4 people to sleep in comfort.
The fully fitted kitchen includes a cool box, sink and stove, and there's a table and chairs included which can be set up inside or out and stowed away when not in use.
Touchscreen infotainment has a built in SIM card offering a range of online services and functions. A customisable digital cockpit keeps the driver informed of all the information they need. The multi-function leather steering wheel and camper control panel allow further control of the technology on board. Music, navigation and smartphone integration come via the Composition Colour infotainment system. Volkswagen We Connect adds the finishing touches with an emergency call system, vehicle health report, driving data, parking position and speed alerts.
Front Assist With City Emergency Braking - warns the driver of potential collisions and can apply the brakes. It now recognises potential roadside hazards such as cyclists and pedestrians.
Driver Steering Recommendation - suggests ways of stabilising the vehicle and intervenes with slight adjustments if oversteer is detected on cornering.
Crosswind Assist - works with the electronic stabilisation system applies braking above 50mph if the vehicle is in strong cross winds.
The Volkswagen California 6.1 Campers are available in a range of colours, with two-tone, metallic, solid paint and pearl effect options. With a range of alloy wheels, interior furnishing trims and upholstery you can really make your home-from-home your own.
