Explore freedom on a grand scale

Back in the sixties, our iconic campervan won hearts as a symbol of freedom. Seventy years later, like the Kombi, we’ve all grown up. Now life is more about relaxation than liberation. That’s why the Grand California Campervan includes 4MOTION AWD, a touch screen control pad, a heated outdoor shower, and a separate wet room. You can find peace in a 5-year warranty. With more space, comfort and freedom than ever, the Grand California Campervan is ready for a new generation of adventure.


Stretch out and relax

Featuring plenty of space to take home comforts on the road, the Grand California Campervan fits beds for two adults in the 680 and extra room for two children in the 600. The white surfaces create a modern and minimalist atmosphere, helped by the skylights. Enjoy open plan van life wherever you go.


Peace, Love & Adaptive Cruise control

With all your home away from home comforts, plus a little extra help from features including Adaptive Cruise Control, Parking Sensors, 4MOTION AWD and a Reversing Camera. The Grand California is the campervan that drives like a car.


Exploration awaits

Built from the ground up by our Volkswagen experts, your fully self-contained home on the road is designed on a platform taken from the proven Crafter. The Grand California motorhome expands upon previous generations of its proud story of building freedom on four wheels.

Clever details

Little things, big results

A simple touchpad panel controls lighting, and shows water and battery levels. The dual-fuel heating operates on gas or mains electricity to keep you comfortable all year round, as does the optional roof-mounted air conditioning.

All you need is love and solar power

Explore off grid

With a little sun worship and some handy solar panels the Grand California will keep you running no matter how far you go off the grid. Located on the roof the solar collector generates 104W for the 600 and 174W for the 680.


Exploration awaits

Enjoy the outdoors

Outside the additional heated outdoor shower is just what you need for hosing sand or mud off. The built in camping table and chairs are also perfect for enjoying summer evenings and relaxing under the awning after a long day.

Seperate wet room

A defining feature of the Grand California is the separate wet room. Including a toilet, shower and space-saving sink. There’s also integrated shelving and storage for toiletries and towels. The ventilating skylight clears steam quickly and motion-sensing lights as standard add a touch of style.

Parking assistance

When your holiday starts with parking

Optional “Park Assist” parking steering assistance
The optional “Park Assist” parking steering assistance can complete multi-stage parking into bay parking spaces. When the reverse gear is engaged, the vehicle automatically assumes control of the steering. All the driver has to do is operate the accelerator and the brake.

Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert
Provides an audible warning when reversing out of parking spaces if another vehicle is getting too close. If the driver fails to react, the system can minimise the consequences of a possible accident and, in the best case scenario, prevent an accident entirely, by applying the brakes.

“Rear View” reversing camera (not illustrated)
The optional “Rear View” reversing camera simplifies parking by showing a limited view of the area behind the vehicle on the display of the radio or navigation system. Additional reference lines aid the parking process.

Sweet dreams

Nothing makes you feel more relaxed, than a good night’s sleep. Whether you rest your head in the 680’s fixed double bed or send the kids upstairs to sleep in the 600’s loft bed, you can sleep soundly with the comforts in the Grand California.


Let the sunshine in

During the day, two large skylights (0.70 m x 0.60 m) flood the motorhome with light. And in the evening, you can watch the stars from the dining area or even from bed. They can also be protected with mosquito nets or covered with an extendible roller blind.

Dished springs

Next stop: The land of nod

Regardless of what position you sleep in, the dish springs installed under the rear bed ensure the ideal level of comfort.


Rear bed

Everyone sleeps well here.

Everyone prefers to sleep in their own bed. Your pillow has just the right amount of softness, your mattress has just the right amount of spring. Admittedly, sleeping in the Grand California is not quite a normal experience. That’s primarily down to the fact that you can hear the crickets chirping quietly. Or the waves crashing on the sand. Otherwise, everything else is just the same as at home. You even have your own bed in the Grand California. With a spacious crosswise bed, the Grand California 600 has plenty of space of peace. A generous lengthwise bed in the Grand California 680 provides even more comfort. Sweet dreams!
