With summer about to blow away the rain clouds soon, it’s a good time to think about buying a Volkswagen California campervan as there are tempting low-rate finance offers with up to 10 years to pay for new ones, and there’s currently a generous supply of Assured Used models available from the Volkswagen Van Centre network which you could be off on the open road with next weekend.

Volkswagen California Beach

Finance offers for the new California range include a Volkswagen Solutions PCP from £379 a month, including free servicing for three years or 60,000 miles (whichever is sooner), or competitive hire purchase rates available with repayments over 10 years.

With unlimited potential for adventure and spontaneous holidays, the California is the ultimate Volkswagen campervan with the ubiquitous pop-up roof and versatile accommodation for every active lifestyle.

The California is unique as the only campervan produced directly by an automotive manufacturer to the same standards and with the same warranty as Volkswagen’s cars and vans.

There are two California models available, the Beach and the SE, both featuring two double beds, integrated blinds and lighting, plus a portable table and two deckchairs.

The Beach offers seating for up to seven people, with retail prices starting from £33,898, while the SE is fully equipped with a wardrobe and kitchen complete with cooker, sink and on-board tanks for fresh and waste water, with retail prices from £42,603.
