VW California Beach & California Ocean Camper Vans Comparison
As spring is upon us, it’s the time of year to start planning how you’ll spend your summer. If you want a break from your busy life and a chance to get back in touch with nature, you should consider a Volkswagen camper van! But which is the camper van for you? Keep reading to find out the different between the best campers in the VW range – the California Beach and the California Ocean.
The Perfect Family Camper – California Beach Camper
Able to smoothly drive 7 passengers from A to B, the California Beach is ideal for those with a family, and in need of a camper van with space! Easily sleeping 4 with collapsible front seats that form a bed, the Beach provides extra interior space for more people and luggage, giving you ultimate choice and convenience no matter where you end up travelling to. The sleeping arrangements themselves ensure everyone is comfortable, with full-sized beds in the downstairs of the van, and one in the expanding roof, to give extra space. For the warmer summer nights, the van allows you to enjoy alfresco dining with the table and chairs that are stored in the boot, and a wind out awning that keeps you dry for any unexpected showers.
Luxury On Wheels – California Ocean
The California Ocean camper van is the top of the range VW van that gives you a premium camping experience. The vans swivelling front seats allow every opportunity to sociable - whether it’s for dinner or a coffee and chinwag – and when you don’t need all the seating, the back seats neatly fold down in the tailgate of the van. Like the Beach model, the California Ocean camper is fitted for alfresco living, with a free-standing table that is smartly stored in the sliding door, and is perfect for a week away with its incredibly apt interior features, including a sink that fills with 30 litres of water, a hob, cupboards, and even a 42 litre fridge. In fact, the Ocean van is more like a studio apartment than a camper van! Volkswagen have made this model with ultimate comfort and ease in mind, including with the electric pop out roof and shower, as well as featuring draws, cupboards and a wardrobe to ensure you have everything you need for a getaway.
What Can I Expect From VW Campers?
To begin with, both Volkswagen camper vans have the same dashboard and engines – the difference lies with their camping features. Whether you’re driving or enjoying a break from the road, you can expect the 5inch Cosmo-colour display and 6 speaker stereo which connects to your phone with a USB cable to charge and play music from your device.
No matter what type of road you’re on, he 4 wheel drive allows you to tow 2,500kg with a braked trailer, as well as tight-turning front wheels that give driver’s excellent manoeuvrability. Make your life that little bit easier on top of all this by opting for a rear-view camera and parking sensors to prevent any scratches and scrapes from other objects!
