New VW Camper - Volkswagen California 2019 in-depth review

Published on Dec 6, 2018 838,441 views

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? Join Mat for his latest review to find out!

    MatWatsonCars 3 месяца назад 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...

  • K Mason
    K Mason 3 месяца назад Westfalia Kepler One and Six or Joker City, VW T6's with optional hot water and shower (some inside the van). Transit version, or Nissan version, from other divisions of the Rapido Group (Which includes Westfalia). Citroen version from Possel. VW only one with Haldex AWD. Main selling points 4.9m to 5.4m long, under 2.1m high. Means it fits city multistorey and underground parking - so you have the running costs of 1 vehicle not 1 plus a "proper camper". Expensive - yes. Cheaper to stay in a hotel, probably, if you go to the same places as everyone else. But who wants to do that? Interested if you compared some like the 7 seater Kodiak to the 7 seater VW Beach though. Price vs Practically vs Flexibility vs Space.

  • Shane Michael Boland
    Shane Michael Boland 4 часа назад MatWatsonCars Etui are missing the point with the Bulli... it’s a camper you can park anywhere, one that drives like a family car ( with the 205ps and dynamic suspension ) with 4 motion you can drive almost anywhere. I live in the Swiss Alps and regularly drive into Northern Italy to incredible Italian Camping Sites with fantastic facilities. I park up & either head off on my Trek Madone for a blast or go for a long hike into the mountains with the Springer Spaniel...when I come back I grill a nice piece of meat, open a Barolo or two and sit enjoying the views of the alps or some amazing valley. After the fillet and the Barolo I sleep like a baby up top if the weather is good or down below if windy and wet... in summer the shower at the back is a blessing after a long hike and the wrap around tent at the back gives you the privacy you need when showering... of course not necessary off grid.. the DyAudio System factory installed is excellent and I can stay off grid for 4/5 days with the three batteries installed... reaching into the fridge for a cold beer after 80kms on my Trek is hard to describe... snoozing with the side door open close to a beach or lake is also hard to beat ..

It has a tent on top? If you went out and bought a decent camping set up with a tent, cooking facilities, shelter, chairs etc etc, it would cost nothing like the price the van is listed at

    A real bisexual petrol-head 3 месяца назад INUMIMI28 Just because it's called California, doesn't mean it should be sold in USA. Plus Transporter was once sold in USA as Eurovan, but was pull from US market. The last Transporter is US was Eurovan T5. US market already plenty of Van by Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, Freightliner, Mercedes-Benz (for some strange reason), etc. Why the hell do you Americans want a Transporter? They're designed for Europe.

  • MelCanuck
    MelCanuck 3 месяца назад @INUMIMI28 Chicken tax.... The EU (EEC?) imposed tax on US chicken imports, so the USA retaliated by imposing tax on small vans from Europe - like the VW Transporter. Eventually the EU removed its tax but the US still retained theirs... think the tax is 25%, or so

  • Erik Smith

  • TreeroyJ
    TreeroyJ 3 месяца назад (изменено) because its a very low production vehicle. they can make loads of regular vans and sell them en masse. not the case with campervans. It's for a very small specific market. The people who buy these are old, middle class camping fanatics who have the disposable income / spare money to be able to do it themselves rather than rely on hotels or campsites. They are willing to pay this money so the car gets sold at this price.

After first 3 years will lose say 15k, less than a car at that price, after that 2k a year so again less than a car and accommodation in for free by then. Pre Brexit vote was 55k so agreed, now less affordable entry price for 'the people'.

    Astir01 3 месяца назад The VW is small enough for everyday use, so you have a van and a normal car. See if you get two cars that cover all the features and possibilities for unter 60 k and add the additional costs for the second garage, insurance, tax and technical contol. Just to give you an example: A Ford Transit and a Ford Galaxy are both available for about 30 k but none of it is a motor home.

It starts at £57,600 to £67,900 (for the 4x4) basic price meaning it can cost over £75,000 with options which is a rip off for a builders van with outdated nav system (£1500) with sliding seats, a cooker, and electric canvas roof.

  • Daniel Collins
    Daniel Collins 3 месяца назад Wow what fanboys, I don’t see what your getting at ? Are you saying this is good value for money ? there is no excuse for a brand new model to not have the latest infotainment especially when it’s available in a much cheaper vehicle and parking sensors cost the manufacture’s buttons, again it should be standard in such an expensive vehicle.
  • Russell Hawker
    Russell Hawker 3 месяца назад @Daniel Collins guilty as charged, a fanboy. And yes, £60K maybe a bit much, better off buying a converted T6 van. And yes a bit stingy of VW to not fit the latest system. But still getting a truly versatile vehicle for the money. If that's what you want. And only has the footprint of a Ford Mondeo. But understand why you would bulk at the price considering that buys a BMW M2 or Porsche Cayman.

    MaZEEZaM 3 месяца назад That got to be better than what I did, Im an Australian and our cars generally tend to be pretty large but I camped in my Ford Falcon Sedan by folding down the rear seats, putting thick blankets and one of those camping matresses partly in the boot itself and partly on the folded down seat, that's what I slept on, wasn't too bad but could have been a lot better. At least I possibly stayed warmer than my mates in tents and I was certainly dryer and no insects or falling branches bothering me. The back of a large 4WD would have been much preferable given the flat space.

    Adrenaline Junkie 2 месяца назад With all options it's sadly £80,000. It's still only a builders van with a mini camping stove, sliding seats and electric canvas roof. See what size £80,000 gets you for an RV in America. Something you can take 8 people out in comfort and three times the size.

    Tallandcharming 2 месяца назад Retro Collected no you perch on the engine and then shit in the bottle which is disguised as a window washer. You wouldn’t poop ON the engine, that would be mental.

  • Bredadarts
    Bredadarts 3 месяца назад You got it all wrong. Buy a tent or a motorhome? A motorhome can not be used for anything else than camping. This cali i can use for camping, away days football, a day to the beach. I can use it as a daily car. Gone fishing, taking my mbt along, I can do my shopping and park almost everywhere. I can park it at home easely. And it drives way better and cheaper than a motorhome. And when i want a hotel with a nice bed, i drive to a nice hotel and park my cali in front of it. This is the whole point of the cali. Freedom. It can do all you want. Where a motorhome is only useful for long holidays. I can be in spain, next day italy if i would like. Now, do that with a motorhome. Have fun driving, parking etc.

    Bill 3 месяца назад I agree. Vehicles like this have a place, but this one is overpriced.
  • lucaswhite12
    lucaswhite12 3 месяца назад Exactly my thoughts: this is not an incapable motorhome, it's a versatile everyday car!

  • welloilbeefhooked
    welloilbeefhooked 3 недели назад Agree, I use mine for the daily commute to work/gym/shops/school run, with the added bonus of just getting away with the family, Got trips planned to Jeslo in Italy this year along with a few days down Cornwall. What I like about the VW is that it fits in a normal car parking space, you can't do this with the bigger motorhomes or even the LWB version VW T6(we always forget something, when were away so always, need to pop to the local Asda/Tesco). We also use it to take stuff to the tip and anything you can do with a car/van!! As for being overpriced, yes its expensive but have a look at the prices of the older T5 California, they still hold there value pretty well as will the new T6!!!
