New VW Camper - Volkswagen California 2019 in-depth review

  • Published: 06 December 2018
  • This is the new Volkswagen California Ocean! This camper van comes packed with a host of features and gadgets that make it a perfect accompaniment to a camping trip. But when you add a couple of extras on, the price can easily top £60,000! So the question is, should you consider the California Ocean when there are so many motor home options already on the market?

    To everyone saying this has a shower, what I meant is that it doesn't have a built-in one with warm water. You can get a shower hose option to hook up to the water supply. But you have to shower outside and the water is cold. Lovely...

              Some very odd design decisions and extremely extortionate priced extras. Better off just converting a van.

                              Everything looked a bit cheap like the blinds, the bed, the seats, the stove etc. Very flimsy. 60k??? Not on your nelly.

                                      The cost of this thing and yet VW can't be arsed to put the sliding door on the correct side. Stick to 3rd party conversion companies.

                                                    Better off buying a Luton van or LWB sprinter and converting it into a campervan will cost you less than half the price.
