Back in the 80s, the VW vans gained fame as the ultimate camping machine, offering optimum comfort and security and individual freedom, all in an affordable package. This set the stage for an entire generation of California camper vans, famous for their iconic features such as a pop-top roof that articulated at the rear over all of its years and generations.
The latest iteration of this vehicle the current California Beach Edition, which despite its modern features stays loyal to the initial basic idea of an economical camping van.
