The VW T6 California Beach 6.0 will be the best companion for a camping trip with your dog. The difference to the VW T6 Ocean is that it doesn’t have a complete kitchenette, but therefore offers a little more storage space and the bed inside the vehicle extends over its entire width. A generous place for your furry friend is thus ensured! Thanks to the mobile gas cooker and two gas cartridges nothing can stop you preparing a delicious camping dish. Fully enjoy your holiday in the VW camper van with your dog! The pop-up roof can be operated manually and thanks to the independent heating system you are spared frostbite even on cold days.

Dog friendly campervan hire – which vehicle fits the most?

You are spoilt for choice: would you prefer the “Dog Suite” or the “Dog Hostel Deluxe”? It’s not an easy decision but the differences between the models will help you decide which of the vehicles fits you and your dog better. Both campervans are dog friendly and both are the perfect rental vans of the VW fleet for dogs. However, there is one small difference: The “Dog Suite” has an integrated kitchenette with refrigerator and gas stove, while the “Dog Hostel Deluxe” does not have a complete kitchenette but a bed that covers the entire width of the vehicle.
If you travel with large dogs or more than one furry friend you will need a lot of space, the “Dog Hostel Deluxe” will then be the better choice.
The rest of the equipment of both campervans is very similar: With a height of 1.99 metres you can easily get into any car park, the cruise control protects you from speed cameras, the rear view camera helps you out of difficult parking situations and the integrated GPS leads you the right way.
You can of course book additional equipment for both vehicles. Interesting extras might be a bike rack or even a rack on the roof – both at a low price.
