Interior design

The California design is unique. It sleeps up to four in comfortable beds and includes a fully fitted kitchen with a cool box, sink and stove kitchen unit plus more. Choose from ergonomic seats which can turn around 180° to electric 12-way seat adjustment along with a range of seat benches – the California offers you plenty of freedom to configure the camper van the way you want.

Exterior design

The elevating roof provides you with comfort in a small space. It gives you extra space to move around in the passenger compartment. The California enables you to transform the upper level of your camper van into a comfortable sleeping area. Setting up the elevating roof is even easier in the California Ocean as it’s operated electro-hydraulically. Set up is manual in the California Beach.

The camping table and chairs can be set up outside – and stowed neatly away to save space when not being used. There's accessible storage space with a wardrobe and a ceiling storage box you'll have plenty of easily accessible storage space for clothing, luggage and leisure equipment.

Heated adjustable mirrors
Electrically folding door mirrors

Electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors with painted housings are fitted as standard. The mirrors on the Ocean also come with an electrically folding function.

Enjoy optimum visibility

Halogen headlights and daytime running lights ensure that you can see well. A dimming interior mirror provides additional protection against uncomfortable dazzling from traffic behind you.

Tailgate spotlights and LEDs in the elevating roof
Lighting to make loading a breeze

Two LED lights on the inside of the tailgate light up the living compartment when it's dark outside. When the tailgate is open, the luggage area and behind is lit up to help you load and unload the California. The LED lights in the standard tilting roof and in the tailgate of the camper van provide excellent illumination and are operated by easy-to-reach switches.


The California gives you a comfortable but efficient ride with its new generation of engines compliant with the Euro 6 emissions standard.

Euro 6 engines are equipped with Efficiency Technology, featuring a start/stop system, regenerative braking, Hill Start Assist and roll resistance-optimised tyres. An optional 7-speed dual clutch gearbox DSG gives you fully automatic, almost imperceptible gear changing with no interruption in power flow, which results in significantly increased driving comfort and efficiency. You can choose between normal and sport mode.​ Its modern air conditioning system adjusts the temperature in seconds, providing cool air on hot days. The auxiliary heating will warm you up on cold days. The heated windscreen gives you good visibility in any weather.

Experience your favourite music on the high-quality radio and find your way with ease using the California's navigation system with a winning combination of intuitive operation, the best connectivity and great sound. You can equip the California with many mobile online services. Connect the vehicle to your smartphone and the Internet to access current traffic reports and apps
