California 6.1 Coming soon
Hit the road this summer with the travel companion of your dreams in the new California 6.1. With a range of new colours and styling adding to its head turning looks, you wont go unnoticed.
Sleeping for four. Pop top roof. Compact size
You could say not much’s changed since the 70s. But it has (man). We’ve added all the creature comforts you’d expect in a modern motorhome, like a fully fitted kitchen, cozy beds, masses of storage and premium finishing. So go on, say goodbye to hippy-ness and hello happiness.
Sets up beds in seconds
After a long day exploring, there's nothing better than returning to your new California to take things easy. The California Ocean's interior transforms with an electric roof and easy fold down seats to sleep four adults quickly and easily.
Your home away from home
As you'd expect, the Ocean includes everything that you'll need - stainless steel sink, two burner stove, temperature controlled cool/warm box plus many more amazing features.
A fully equipped kitchen
A whole world in the kitchen
Homemade burgers or fresh fish from the sea: in the California, you can try out your kiwi favourites in your very own kitchen. Equipped with a gas hob with two rings, a fridge to store your chilled goods and a sink to wash up
Perfect sleeping conditions
Sleep like you’re on your perfect holiday
There’s not always a hotel to stay at your favourite secret spots out on the road. Unless you have your own with you: with its spacious loft bed, the California offers you enough space and comfort to dream about your best holiday moments and fall asleep with the calming rushing of waves in your ears.
A home everywhere
Discover new hotspots, cultures and beaches every day. And yet always feel at home. The California is your home on the road. Its spacious interior provides plenty of room to spread yourself out. And plenty of space for your favourite cuddly toy or holiday reading. Cook, sleep, relax – just like at home. Only with the whole world at your doorstep
Carefully planned right down to the smallest detail
4MOTION all-wheel drive
Four times the power
Power alone is not enough. 4MOTION all-wheel drive makes sure you can always work wherever you are needed. Using an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch on the rear axle, it automatically adjusts the power transmission to the current driving conditions. The system's lightweight design provides the foundations for an optimum driving response and a dynamic ride.
Dual clutch gearbox
One of its strengths: never letting up
Sometimes you just want to relax and put the pedal to the metal. The adaptive 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (DSG) means that the vehicle can change gear automatically without interrupting the tractive force. It is available in combination with all available TDI engines.
Merry and bright
A constant close eye on what’s ahead: even if you travel at night, the California is always the ideal companion. Especially if it’s fitted with LED headlights: they feature a long light beam and high lighting volume. For the best possible visibility and a safe arrival.
