So how many of you have ordered a T6.1 Beach?

I’ve seen a flurry of Coast and Ocean orders but can only recall seeing a handful of Beach orders being announced on here (@AlisonF being one). Are there more
new Beach orders lurking out there?

I’d also be interested to know whether people are opting for the Tourer or Camper versions in the UK...

I wonder how many people who aren't bothered by the larger bed in the Beach have decide on the Coast instead given the 3k price difference and the standard aux heater.

We wouldn’t. IF we were to change we would go Beach again and pay for any additional spec we wanted to add regardless of the price in comparison to a Coast. A Beach is not about the bigger bed for us its about the extra space and flexibility it gives us. We don’t want a permanent wardrobe or tiny sink that’s fairly useless to us. As with everything in life, you pay your money and make your choice.

So quick!
Thats what I thought! Typical as I’m not in a rush... was hoping for the end of March as the value of my current Beach will increase closer to summer!

Absolutely there's a bum for every seat, in our Ocean we didn't use the sink and only used the hob for brews when not on EHU but I did love the storage and the fact that if we had to we could cook in our Ocean should we get stuck.

What will I buy next time, probably a Coast as I think the Ocean is now too expensive with toys and gadgets we would probably never use for an extra 8k or so and after having an electric roof I think I would prefer a manual..

I’ve orderd a beach Camper for the 5 seats and extra space/light as I wasn’t interested in a sink. Ordered it on 2nd December. How do I find my expected week? The dealer initially said 31st March.
Cheers

If you visit the VW van web site and use the chat function. They can find your order from your name.

Thanks .. I did that and they have no date yet. Not sure if that’s anything to worry about

Great to hear about orders. Anyone care to share the specs they’ve ordered?

Do you know what the interior light concept offers beyond standard interior lights for the Beach. I know that on the Coast it offers lights under the kitchen/ worktop, extra lights in the boot and lights embedded into the fabric of the pop top roof. I guess it will be the boot and roof components of that for the Beach option, but does anyone know for sure?
