rejoice VW’s Camper you want to chase the endless

I recently had the chance to blast George, Mossel Bay and the Klein in a latest and greatest GT. I had had a brilliant day of and was looking forward to capping it off a brisk journey through the curves of the Robertson Pass. was the thought but instead it was a 45km/h, but drive behind four vans. I suddenly developed a for campers, campsites and leather A few weeks later a VW California at the office and who should get the task of it through its paces?

First up the California doesn’t like a camper. There is no caravan body, barring a different roofline it looks a normal VW Caravelle from the It also doesn’t go like a camper van, thanks to the 2.5 TDI motor up front it won’t up the pack on the passes. In this version power is delivered to all wheels and goes through a box.

My time with the included a 500km round to Lichtenberg for a race meeting and I the on road manners exceptional. the middle-mannetjies created by the agricultural moving along the roads cause a hassle. The van tracked and steering feel and response was Overtaking was pleasant and very did I have to shift out of sixth. I set the control and headed North-West, at the end the consumption figure on the trip an impressive 8.9l/100km average than the claimed number. The shelving did however rattle mad over the badly corrugated but what do you expect from a van everything including the

kitchen sink?

Yip, that is right it has a sink and a folding kitchen Wood-trimmed cupboard fittings, hobs with Piezo a 42-litre compressor cool box and storage space than a townhouse. The front seats can be to face the rear for a picnic and the VW can sleep four people.

The seats, which unfortunately seat 2 rear passengers, flat to make a bed while the extends using electric to reveal another small bed. There are lights for blinds to blank off the windows, an socket to tap into camp power, a fresh water two folding deck chairs, and cup holders and 12V sockets.

Park it alongside a racetrack, the roof and the California pulls quickly. It looks cool, well and is even a practical commute if you only need to yourself and three people. The downside is that at R542 700 it cost the same as a 1 bedroomed I reckon it’ll be up to the retired with some extra tom around to buy it. And let’s hope buy the VW rather than anything The California has everything they’d and the performance will guarantee they won’t hold up the on Long Tom Pass. I have a new for Campers now if only the Lotto swing my way and I could chase the summer.
