Can we bring our dog in the VW Grand California?
Furry co-pilots are welcome to join in on the adventure. We allow one Labrador sized or two Westie sized dogs in our vehicles.
Please ensure they are well behaved and properly restrained whilst travelling.
Everything. Including the Kitchen Sink
With the two-gas burner stove top, sink with hot and cold running water, fridge, freezer and ample storage space, you have everything you need to prepare your own tasty meals at any time. A folding tap collapses out of the way when not required and the glass tops double as a convenient worktop. There is also a pop-up worktop extension panel at the end of the unit to give you a little extra space when preparing for cooking. Grand California, grand cuisine.
When you rent a VW Grand California, you will be mightily impressed with the 70-litre fridge with freezer compartment.
This clever design allows for easy access whether you are inside or outside dining in the evening air or perhaps you just need easy access to a cold beverage in the summer sun.

Some adventures, you can do without!
One adventure no one enjoys are late night trips to the toilet blocks or the early morning rush for the showers. When you hire a VW Grand California you can leave that behind! The 110 litres of on-board water coupled with the hot water system brings a new aspect to the California. The spacious wet room allows for a comfortable morning shower and the cassette toilet provides a practical solution for the morning routine.
Everyone likes to sleep in their own bed. The pillow is fluffy in the right way. And the mattress springs the way you like it. Admittedly, the sleeping experience at Grand California is a bit different. This is primarily because you hear the birds chirping quietly. Or the waves are roaring. Otherwise, everything is at home: At Grand California you always have your own bed with you.
This Grand California 600 offers plenty of space for peace and quiet with a spacious cross-bed, always made up, always ready to jump into at any moment. No converting the rear seat on this model!
Is it bedtime yet?
Your mini adventurers are catered for too! The top bunk bed has a lying length of 160 cm to 190 cm, enough for one or two small holidaymakers. The Grand California 600 provides their very own realm, which they can climb via a practical aluminium ladder. It is not only a sleeping place, but also a cuddly cave, a reading corner – and thanks to the panoramic roof even an observatory. The latter can be opened and secured with a mosquito net or completely darkened. Going to bed has never been so much fun: you don't have to sleep right away.
HOW TO SET UP THE OVER-CAB BED
Let there be light
Due to the two large roof hatches (0.70 m x 0.60 m) a lot of light comes into the motorhome during the day. And in the evening you can look at stars from the dinette or even from the bed. They can also be secured with mosquito nets or darkened with a pull-out roller blind.
You will be sure to be able to have everything you need with you in your home from home on your Grand adventure. With plenty of storage space, including overhead lockers, storage under the rear bed and kitchen and bathroom. There is no need to compromise anymore, bring everything!
HOW TO SET UP THE AWNING
The VW Grand California includes the latest technology and modern features you need
to make your adventure comfortable no matter how long you spend on the road.
So that you can enjoy all the comforts of the vehicle no matter where you park it, a solar panel has been fitted to keep your batteries topped-up regardless of how far you are off the beaten track.
The Grand California comes equipped with a powerful heating system ensuring that you are comfortable all year round. Cleverly located under the seat with multiple directional vents, allowing you to be nice and cosy just where you want it.
The touchscreen panel allows you to monitor and set the system to a comfortable temperature for you. You can even set a schedule, just like at home.
With it’s big windows and skylights, the Grand California allows a huge amount of natural light into the vehicle so we don’t think it needs much in the way of additional lighting, but VW has not disappointed here either. Touch dimmable light strips are dotted all around the vehicle and edge lighting really makes the interior pop. You can also set the ambient lighting via the touchscreen to give you a choice of your favourite colours, will it be blue, green, red, or our favourite, orange. There is also an LED awning light to allow you to spend longer outside. So convenient, so clever.
To ensure a comfortable and relaxing first experience when entering the California, an electric step extends to welcome you inside. The step will extend when you open the door and retracts when the door closes. You can also manually control the step with a touch of a button.
