To many people, the Volkswagen camper van would rekindle memories of the iconic buses made over the three decades to 1979. The fact is, they wouldn’t be entirely wrong, given that the more modern the VW California keeps the spirit alive.
The VW California…or Camper to some, remains true to the camper van concept of being able to cart a family of four around and provide a place for them to eat and sleep. VW promotes it as an alternative to the family car that’s ready for an adventure any time.
That engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged tuned to produce about 150 horsepower or 200 HP depending on which you pick. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is going to be the transmission most people but can be tweaked just a little
It rides on all four wheels and among lovely features you get here is the adaptive cruise control. This is a camper’s car, thus there are some features that make it more fancy.
A two-burner propane stove, sink, gas-powered rear section heater, a tiny shower/hose, fridge, swiveling front passenger seat, fold-out center table, fold-flat rear seats (to become a bed), and the roof which expands skyward to make room for a second sleeping area. How does that sound?
With this,you are quite at home. Your food and snacks easily tuck into the top-loading fridge and front-loading cupboards just like in your home shelves.
To shield from sunny mornings, you can pull down the big shades that tuck neatly into the van’s body and can be pulled out to cover all the windows while you enjoy a good book inside.
There is a lot of forethought that has gone into the camper. The most beautiful thing is that if you aren’t using it for camping purposes, it is just a very normal car in your garage.
