VW California XXL: Larger Version of the Classic Campervan!

This is the VW California XXL. It’s a modern, oversized version of their iconic VW bus. Unfortunately, there are no plans to bring it to the United States. It does kind of look like a Sprinter van though, doesn’t it? What are your thoughts on it?

    I like it a lot.

    I could live in this vehicle for some time. I would not want to do it for a permanent lifestyle. But I bet there are some younger people who would and could.

    If it was all electric, absolutely.

    Look like the same layout as a small 80’s van/motorhome based on the Renault chassis. (Wish I could remember the name of it now, but age and all. . .) right down to the pull-out bathroom/shower.

    But why wait? The Mercedes Metris is about the same size and is available here in the US right now. For something just a shade larger the Mercedes Sprinter, Ford Transit, and Dodge ProMaster are also all available in the US.

    I’ve been living part-time in my Sprinter conversion, (7′ wide, 20′ bumper to bumper, 6’3″ inside headroom, 20 miles to the gallon combined [with 67,000 miles of data], set up for off-grid.) for 7 years now. (The rest of the time I live in 380 sq. ft. carved out of the corner of a barn.)

    What is the sticker price on this one?

      It’s a concept design they’re considering, it’s not in production and thus no price set… May see it at a car show for marketing purposes but that’s it for now…

    Really sleek and modern. It doesn’t look like home to me though. I’ve been checking out some Roadtreks. They’re compact, but they have a warmer, cozy feel to them.
