This is the Motorhub video review of the Volkswagen California Ocean 2017 Review. I managed to drive this camper from Dublin to Wexford and Belfast and back. We even camped out on a cold December evening. The VW California Ocean is effectively a house-trained Volkswagen Transporter T6 – and this video should show why this is one of my favourite machines on the road. In fact, ever since I had it in November 2015, this is one of my kid’s favourite cars.
Our test model came with a 2.0 litre diesel engine and features Volkswagen’s 4Motion system. The Volkswagen California is not cheap though and four our test car, you are looking at the guts of €83,000. With that price in mind, this would definitely be one of my lotto cars!
The Volkswagen California Ocean proved to be a head turner, mainly for cyclists, VW owners and bikers. It consists of four beds and can carry four passengers on the road. Other features in our test model include; a sink, fridge, cooker, shower, deck chairs, turnable front seats, auxiliary heaters, blinds and much more.
