Most Camper van enthusiasts will tell you that Volkswagen is the master of camper van technology and that for years paired with Westfalia carried the camper van scene.
However, it wasn't until the new T5 California did Volkswagen make their very own factory fitted camper van and the outcome was of stunning excellence, and it is easy to see why. The Volkswagen T5 California is factory-built with a first-class pedigree. It's remarkably well designed and constructed, highly specified and demonstrates excellent engine performance.
The good news for UK camper van enthusiasts who are seeking RHD is that Volkswagen has recently reviewed its UK distribution. Having already tested the LHD Volkswagen T5 California camper van and been suitably impressed by it, Rob tested the new RHD version. He was just as impressed and immediately bought one for himself and the family.
Although the Volkswagen T5 California comes fully loaded with standard features and options you can still customise your new VW T5 California camper van with additional 'optional extras'. Based on the Volkswagen T5 Caravelle (rather than the Volkswagen T5 Transporter) the base vehicle kit is excellent including front and rear anti-roll bars, ventilated front discs, anti-lock brakes and power steering. If you get the Volkswagen 4MOTION model, you get a rear differential lock as well.
If you are looking for high quality and specification, along with excellent design and innovation, then the Volkswagen T5 California camper van fits the bill superbly. Furthermore, the Volkswagen T5 California camper van was the first vehicle of its type that could be bought in the UK that came with an official European Whole Vehicle Type Approval.
