Externally the California T6.1 has been subtly tweaked by the designers. Not that it needed much, it was always a great looking campervan. The front-end has a reshaped front grille and more aggressively restyled front bumper. LED headlights are now standard fit completing the more modern look of the front. The rear has also not been forgotten, with remodelled LED rear lights and more pleasing design shapes when illuminated.
The wings now have the word ‘California’ crafted into them which blends into the side repeating indicators, a small touch, but helps to remind you that you are looking at a premium campervan. New wheels and additional colour options complete the exterior modifications. For our money, the two-tones are where it’s at and really lifts the vehicle from ‘nice’ to ‘sublime’.
The compact dimensions of the campervan remain. Still measuring only (4.9 m x 1.9 m), its demure size makes this a really go-anywhere campervan. Want to visit ALL of the famous Scottish NC500 landmarks? This campervan will get you there without worrying about squeezing through the narrow and twisty parts. Parking sensors all around and the reversing camera are the icing on the cake for all of you intrepid explorers.
Perfectly equipped, for every journey
Campervan holidays allow you to be completely self-sufficient, that is why the VW California T6.1 comes with a fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare something fresh at any time. If you are stuck for inspiration just have a look at the VW Campervan Cookbook that we supply as part of your campervan hire experience.
There are many other features that you will appreciate especially if your travels take you further afield than a campsite with on-site facilities. A 30-litre fresh water tank, a 42-litre compressor fridge and two dedicated leisure batteries giving you light and power to be off the beaten track for a number of days.
The VW California is renowned for its clever storage of the onboard table and chairs. Release these from their clever hidey-hole, retract the outside awning, get the beers out of the fridge and…….relax! The bottle opener is in the kitchen drawer, top-right, ok?
Cosier than ever
The California always was a place of serenity and calm to be in, not much has changed in that regard, the captain seats still swivel 180° allowing everybody to socialise together, the amazing auxiliary heater is still there to ensure you are always warm and cosy even on the chilliest nights, so for this iteration, mostly minor tweaks are to be found. However, Volkswagen does not like to rest on its laurels and has given us something new to appreciate.
New for you to enjoy when you hire the T6.1 California Ocean from us, is the lounge-recline function of the lower bed. Allowing you to adjust the bed in any position you find comfortable. Simply pull on the strap, lie back and release, and there you are! A perfect position for reading a book, watching a film on your iPad, or if you're inclined, open the panoramic window of the pop-top roof and enjoy the view of the stars in the evening sky. Fantastic.
Sleeping on the lower bed has also been improved with a new mattress which is both slimmer yet more comfortable by choosing more modern materials.
Camper control unit
The old-style camper control unit has finally been replaced with a more modern, sleek, glossy and highly responsive touch control interface much like an iPad. This provides a more intuitive and premium feel to interacting with the camper controls and the larger screen now allows important information to be displayed graphically.
With this new incarnation, Volkswagen have added two new features; a handy levelling display to ensure you can position the camper so that your head is always above your feet when you sleep, and a LED sunrise function to gently and calmly wake you in the morning, mimicking nature's sun rays
