California SE

California SE

It's out there.

From the moment you fasten the seatbelt and hit the road, your holiday begins. Drawing on 60 years experience, the California SE symbolises everything that’s cool about camping and moves the original ‘camper van’ concept onto another level. As you’d expect, the SE includes everything you’ll ever need – including a stainless steel sink, two-burner stove, temperature controlled cool/warm box, on-board fresh and waste water tanks, gas storage compartment, electric hook-up, two-person lower bed, masses of storage and the all important pop-up roof that’s been a hallmark of Volkswagen campers down the ages. What’s more everything fits together snugly, so there are no annoying rattles or squeaks while you’re on the move.

However, it’s attention-to-detail that sets the SE apart. From the hard-wearing and realistic wood-effect trim to the innovative floor rail system, or the remote/timer controlled parking heater to the central control system that operates most of the SE’s features at the touch of a button, the SE stands-out as a vehicle that’s been lovingly crafted for a new and enthusiastic generation of camper fans. Get out there and enjoy the view.

A true home from home.

Clever design is at the heart of every California and with the California SE, we’ve taken time to consider every aspect of how you’re likely to use the interior space. From the location of electrical sockets or choice of hygienic, wipe-clean frosted glass worktops, to the clever attachment system that runs around the kitchen unit or easy-to-use insulated window blinds, we’ve thought of practical ways to make life easier – after all, why complicate things when you’re on holiday or enjoying a relaxing day out? Whether dining outside, using the optional roll-out awning, standard removable table or twin folding camping chairs that are stored in the tailgate, or whether tucked-up inside the aluminium pop-up roof on a comfy slatted bed frame and foam mattress, the California SE is a true home from home.

New Volkswagen California SE Features

Camping has never been as good as the first time you experience a trip away to the countryside with the new Volkswagen California SE. Read on and find out why this is a camper van unlike any you have seen before:

Dine in style with a fully fitted kitchen…

You read that last heading correctly; the new Volkswagen California SE does come complete with a fully fitted kitchen in its cabin. Ready to use as soon as you park the camper van, you will be able to cook delicious meals using a pair of gas hobs, while a 42-litre fridge will keep your produce nice and fresh. A sink which operates using a huge 30-litre water tank also means that cleaning up the plates afterwards is an easy and stress-free task.

…And enjoy a relaxing night’s sleep with two spacious beds

You needn’t worry about pitching a tent and trying to catch 40 winks in a cramped sleeping bag if you’ve brought a new Volkswagen California SE along to your camping trip. A rear bench inside the camper van can fold down within seconds to create a spacious and comfy 1.14m x 2m double bed. More than two people at your campsite? Then lift the new California’s roof and an additional 1.2m x 2m double bed also becomes available for use.
