That’s good to know! This will be a brilliant thread to look back through when I eventually take the plunge!Hi @MTM84 That £276 is for the comfort mattress.
You get the "bed enlargement (multiflex) and storage compartment" whether or not you select this option. The configurator is a bit confusing.
Lots of discussion here about whether or not to get the comfort mattress, but doesn't seem like many have done direct comparisons.
(I didn't do direct comparisons either but decided to go without the comfort mattress, so use a Zonesleep Ultra which is OK but not amazing - upstairs still more comfy, but downstairs is comfortable enough. What *is* amazing is my Thermarest Mondoking XXL which I use for camping, will eventually try it in the van. That Mondoking is like my bed at home, even when placed directly on hard cold concrete. I even lost a headtorch underneath it and didn't notice. And bumps, rocks etc don't seem to matter either.... )
Similarly when I traded in my 11 year old Cali which has served very well in a variety of ways I worked out that it was not the extravagance I had thought. Just a very big purchase to begin with!! My new one is three weeks old and we are bonding nicely.Hi Martin,
I really can't see many on here answering with "There cali is totally overpriced, I really wasted my money...."
There are some lovely campers out there. The Wellhouse camper is impressive. It depends really on what use you intend to get for it.
My last Cali gave me a bedroom for over 300 nights, in often hard to get to locations, with comfort, ease and total reliability and when I sold it after four years it had cost me £3k a year. So, yes, I think that I had good value for money.
Ah right, okay then. I found such threads very useful when purchasing our Golf R and Up GTI as they illustrated who was offering the best deals and what those deals looked like.No your not missing anything , most on here have already purchased a Cali an could not give a fig for the current deals !
Deals are dealer and vehicle specific, just the way VW like it !
That seems like a load of rot -- I ordered my Beach on 18th October 2018 and I took delivery of it on 17th January 2019. i.e. 3 months. Lots of others on this forum have had similar build times recently.Apparently the waiting time for a factory order is 12-16 months
Sorry, it was late last night and I should have written 12-18 weeks!That seems like a load of rot -- I ordered my Beach on 18th October 2018 and I took delivery of it on 17th January 2019. i.e. 3 months. Lots of others on this forum have had similar build times recently.
I bought mine through Autoebid and got 8% off. The dealer that handled my purchase (Liverpool) was clearly selling *lots* of Californias
