As an owner of a Berghaus edition California I was interested in knowing where the other Berghaus’ ended up. I’ve never seen another on the road. We’ve got a reflex silver and are down in the South West of UK. Vehicle now has 51k on the clock. I believe there were originally 80 of them produced. There was talk of a register on this site, but don’t know if that ever happened...

There was a thread about this last year - I think the silver / special wheels combo looks great.

My mate has a silver Berghaus, here in Bristol. He managed to pick it up for a great price and just 13k on the clock - #welljell

Excuse my ignorance, but what is different on a Berghaus edition? Apart from that badge near the rear wheel?

2011 Special Edition.

Volkswagen has launched a special edition of its famous camper van - the California Berghaus. Created in collaboration with the outdoor clothing specialist, the limited edition model has been developed as the 'the ultimate vehicle' for exploring and enjoying the outdoors in comfort and style.

The limited edition Berghaus model gets all the comforts that standard California models offer, including seating and accommodation for four, an electrically-operated pop-up roof, a fully-functioning integrated kitchen in the rear living space including a fridge and gas-powered cooker, plus a fold-away table and chairs.

The Berghaus model add a bike rack, a side-mounted awning, 18-inch bi-colour ‘Dakar’ alloy wheels, metallic paint, Berghaus-branded carpet mats and waterproof seat covers. Each vehicle also comes with an exclusive ‘Berghaus pack’ to prepare customers for exploring the outdoors in style. This includes a Berghaus ‘Freeflow 25’ rucksack, two sleeping bags, gloves, hats, insulated mugs, a travel water bottle, a flask and a map case.


All Berghaus models are fitted with the 2.0-litre BiTDI 180PS engine and a six-speed manual transmission, which returns a claimed 36.2mpg on the combined cycle with emissions of 205g/km. It accelerates from 0-62mph takes 12.4 seconds while the top speed is 117mph.
Priced at £47,995 on the road (including VAT), the Berghaus model is the first ever special edition California and only 80 will be produced.

So it doesn't really offer me things I would really need.
And the 2011 180hp engines weren't that good?
Or am I insulting somebody again?

If you bought this van second hand, were the Berghaus extra's still with the van? Or did someone just bought this vehicle for the Berghaus extra's and now selling the van because this wasn't what they needed?
Just wondering?

I was hoping in different interior parts, or layout. But I guess that is a bridge too far for VW.

There is a grey one I see frequently in Eastleigh.

I think he sold up recently as he had loads of bits on eBay A while back.

They only made 1 good one and then they sent it to Wales :D
Or at least 80 good ones?

If they make a special edition, I think they should really make it a special. Not only adding some extra's or gadgets.
Something like a different floor with a mountain peak. A table with a map on it. Some outdoor looking gas burners. A winch on the front. Spare wheel on the bootlid (not compatible with the bike rack).

Something like that.
But the extra's might give it a little touch of course.

Yes that's right! Repeat this 10 times with increasing speed, "Ohwa tana siam" ;)

I wonder if the Management at VW before partnering up with Berghaus to make a limited edition thought they were a German company?
