60 years in the making

The movement that began with the Volkswagen campervan – a rolling symbol for independence and freedom – now brings you a true home on four wheels in the California 6.1. There is no better way to add to the success of a legend. And no better way to express your attitude to life.

California elevated sleeping area

Elevated roof

The California 6.1 offers comfort in a small space. You can set up the elevating roof of the California 6.1 in just a few easy steps at your holiday destination or stopover. The expanding roof gives you extra space to move around in the passenger compartment. Setting up the elevating roof is easy in the California Ocean as it’s operated electrically. As night falls, you can transform the campervan into your own comfortable bedroom to sleep four.
