VW California Beach

The VW California Beach was undoubtedly an iconic type van in the past but times have moved on and today one can find motorhomes or campervans which are much better equipped for less money.  As I discuss in the review, the VW California Beach is no more than a car with a tent on the roof.  If one is looking for a car, which can be parked in garages with roof clearance under 210cm (eg in multi storey car parks) with sleeping faciiities and one is not too bothered about not having sanitary arrangements then that is OK.  But with a starting price of EUR48k or GBP40k the only redeeming features are a very small footrpint and low height, otherwise one can get a much better equipped campervan for less.
