This is the one everybody wants, it’s the VW factory-built California Ocean in beautiful white paintwork. It’s got blue-motion stop-start economy which works beautifully with the top of the range DSG gearbox (7 speed). Beautiful set of 17” Davenport Alloys. Electric folding wing mirrors. Everything works superbly well and we’ve really loved and looked after ‘Espirito’, and everyone that sees it think that it’s brand new! This vehicle is superb and easy to drive (I use it as my daily drive as well as camping trips) and you can go and park anywhere as under 2 metres high, and it has fantastic all round visibility including through the rear tailgate (just keep the rear headrests down if there’s no rear passengers). You can drive this for hundreds of miles without feeling tired as it has really comfortable captain’s seats including adjustable arm rests and cruise control, along with heated seats for winter. Superb radio/CD stereo system and factory fitted privacy glass.
Inside is also superb with the factory fitted insulated trim (you just don’t get this with those plywood clad self builds), and captain’s seats which swivel 180 degrees for a really cosy inside space, and lot’s of interior lighting. Everything works as it should including the built in fridge, sink, tap and double hob. All windows have built in blinds and the cutlery drawers are soft close. There’s the built in slide away dining table and the rear seat easily converts to a double bed along with a comfortable mattress. Of course, there’s the freshwater tank and waste water tank. And, with this model, you have a large built in clothing drawer, overhead locker and a small mirrored wardrobe. It has the factory fitted space heater. The electric pop-up roof operates with a touch of a button and this gives you ample standing room for even the tallest. There’s also a very large sprung double bed with another mattress up there along with zipped vents/fly screens for those warm nights. There’s also dimmable lighting up there.
In the rear, there’s ample shelving and ‘boot space’. There’s a steel wheel spare (new tyre) underslung with a locking nut for security. The mileage is below average at around 42,000 miles and I’ll provide the service history which includes the VW recommended cam belt change. It’s booked in for it’s annual service and MOT at a local campervan specialist garage on 21st September, and will also undergo it’s annual Habitation Check on 24th September (that way you know it’s safe; electrics, water tanks etc., and there’s no damp).
Of course, there’s the standard additional table for outside, wind out awning and the 2 VW folding camping chairs (these store away in the tailgate). Comes with the factory fitted bike rack (carries up to 3 bikes) with working clamp locks and key).
If the asking price of £44,950 is met, I’ll include a load of extras you wouldn’t normally get, including:
Vango Palm Air awning (RRP £495), including pump (easily erects in minutes) with built in ground sheet and only used 3 times.
Driveaway kit for the awning.
Pitch Taken sign.
Toilet Tent (never used) and Porta Potty (used twice for wee wees only) and supply of chemicals.
25 metre Hook Up cable (including storage reel) and home mains adaptor.
Small oil-filled radiator to take advantage of the hook up electricity if you need extra warmth.
Top of the range double mattress topper (Dunelm £60).
Padded cover with campervan design material to cover the porta potty (makes useful pouffe/footrest).
Three beautiful cushions all in campervan design material.
Couple of lanterns (battery operated) for the awning.
Levelling ramps and 2-way spirit level (essential to get a nice level position on the pitch).
Spare bulb kit (required legally for Europe).
Insulted front windscreen and driver + passenger window black out covers (easy fit).
Dashcam and reversing camera kit, including extension lead (I’ve not fitted this, so is brand new and cost £100).
Ridge monkey (large) double-sided cooking pan.
Gaz Bottle + empty spare.
Low voltage electric kettle.
Couple of doormats.
Full set of seat and head rest covers (these came with the campervan but we’ve never used them).
Just about everything you need!
