To be fair, i've run circles around every dealer i've come across in regards to knowledge, with the exception of the Breeze Poole guys here in the UK. Cali's are sold from the commercial dealers here in the UK, and ultimately that means their knowledge focuses primarily on the commercial vehicles, rather than the intricate details of the Cali.
Hi kallista, Cali Chris & John Mason at Liverpool are well clued up and very helpful.

Factor in the luxury car tax that will probably apply to the T6, and a brand new T6.1 Ocean will not be much more.
Please could you explain what this luxury car tax will be out of interest - thanks

Currently the California is classified as a Private Light Goods Vehicle so this "luxury car tax" does not apply. However up until March this year it was a "car" and because it's list price was over £40k then you pay an additional £300 ish for the first 5 years.

£475 a year for 5 years after the first year of £1800 which should have been paid if the Cali has been taxed.

It all changed when Motor Homes (big whites) were to be treated the same as cars, ie, over £40K list price (not what is paid as a discount to below £40K didn't avoid it).
The Motor Home Industry got organised and put up a case for loss of business/sales which resulting in a Gov. backtrack but not guaranteed to be a permanent decision.
A potential cashcow waiting to be milked.
