4 Reasons Why the California Ocean is the Best VW T6 Campervan to Hire
Sunday 3rd February 2019
We couldn't honestly write about VW T6 camper hire without having experienced it for ourselves. Before choosing the California Ocean to be our hire vehicle, my wife and I did a lot of research into this model. Once purchased, we travelled to Scotland to discover for ourselves what it was to travel in; driving long distances and staying in it for 3 weeks.
Below we have detailed 4 reasons why we think the California Ocean is the best VW T6 campervan to hire and travel in, and we have also included what past hirers have told us they love about this camper.
1. Comfort and style
One of the luxuries of a VW campervan is the spaciousness. Extra bit of space is functional and well designed; the Volkswagen California Ocean is 60 years in the making, and they perfected providing luxury, functionality and comfort.
It's quick to set-up the beds, there's a wardrobe and ceiling box for storage, and the ergonomic seats can be configured to suit your desired layout inside the camper. Extra mattress toppers are available to go on the fully-slated bases for those looking for ultimate comfort.
The fully-functional kitchenette enables hirers to cook anywhere, and the deep fridge provides lots of food storage. Plus, there is an incorporated awning and camping table and chairs, so you can escape into the fresh air to enjoy meals.
2. Big enough for families
It's not often a converted VW campervan can sleep more than two people, but one of the best things about VW T6 camper hire is the electric, pop-top roof. If you're looking for stress-free VW campervan hire, the California is ideal as it is devoid of manual work. The roof rises electro-hydraulically, so it's quick and easy to open the roof to provide standing space whilst cooking and a bed that sleeps two. An extra luxury element is that you can control the heating from your bed by use of the remote control.
3. Space for dogs - including big dogs!
Bonnie, our Golden Retriever, came with us on every trip, and our VW T6 campervan holiday was no exception. As you know, Golden Retrievers are a large breed, but due to the spacious interior in the California Ocean, she had ample space to move and sleep. With our dog-friendly campervan hire, we also provide a pressure mat, which works by keeping pets cool.
4. Easy and comfortable to drive
If you aren't familiar with driving large vehicles, it's understanding that the thought of driving a VW T6 campervan can be daunting. The California has practical driver assistance and safety systems to help drivers when parking, changing lanes and more. The parking assistance simplifies the entire process, and as there are parking sensors at both the front and rear, you are made aware of potential obstacles all around the van. Also, the clever lighting system will automatically provide extra light when the van is going around a corner, improving the visibility.
Plus, the California Ocean has cruise control, so it is both an enjoyable and relaxing Volkswagen campervan to hire, especially for those longer drives! And, due to the larger footprint on the road, a long wheelbase will feel more stable at speed.
