On the road with the VW van

To be free beyond all limits, to live independently into the day, without many things from everyday life and still have everything with you. This is perhaps how you could describe the lifestyle of renting a VW campervan. Because anyone who decides to rent a VW California Ocean from roadsurfer is also deciding in favour of freedom, flexibility and, of course, an absolute cult model!

The VW California, as it came off the production line as a motorhome at the beginning of the 1960s as the successor to the VW Beetle, gave many families the happiness of their first big trip across the Alps at the time of the economic miracle in Germany. Taking the van to Italy was the motto.

After the first production line as a flatbed van, the VW California – the iconic T1, which is still affectionately called the “Bulli” today – was converted into a motorhome and used by many VW enthusiasts. At that time, VW bus rental was of course not yet possible in this form. Any family that could afford a VW bus was among the privileged.

The successors T2 and T3 changed mainly in that the engine was moved from the rear to the front under the bonnet. In the beginning, the VW Bulli was designed like the Beetle, then it became a cult model for the generation of the 70s!

Renting a VW bus today means renting the VW California. Mostly the VW California Ocean is meant, because it has a completely integrated kitchen. At roadsurfer this is the “Surfer Suite Deluxe”. Also based on the VW California is the VW California Beach, without a kitchen, but with a wide 3-seater back seat and more space to lie down. This model is called “Beach Hostel Deluxe” by roadsurfer.

It is not for nothing that roadsufer started in 2017 as a VW California rental, because this campervan can be described as the mother of all small campervans and conveys the feeling of freedom, adventure and wanderlust like hardly any other camper model.

Rent a VW T6.1, plan your road trip!

The VW T6.1 California Ocean, our Surfer Suite Deluxe, offers you everything you need for a comfortable camping holiday in the smallest space. The camper for 4 people is ideally suited for a family holiday with two children. Like a small snail shell, the VW Camper offers you everything you would find in a large motorhome, from the kitchenette with refrigerator, two-plate gas cooker, sink and outdoor shower to the cutlery drawer and plenty of storage space.

If you’re renting the VW California for the first time, you’ll be surprised by the clever layout of the interior and you’re sure to experience a small miracle of space. The camping table in the inner sliding door is just as brilliantly stowed away to save space as the camping chairs in the tailgate.

The rotating front seats are really practical for family dinners. So everyone can dine together at the integrated folding table in the interior or play party games in the evening. No problem with the LED lighting in the bus. And you can also stand and cook very comfortably in the interior! Simply raise the pop-up roof automatically and the standing height is an incredible 1.99 metres! So it’s not just for midgets!

When the children get tired in the evening, they can snuggle up in the pop-up roof and make themselves comfortable. Simply close the safety blind, then the roof serves as a room of its own and the parents can chat a bit below! Renting a VW T6.1 California means having a two-room apartment – if not a whole hotel suite!

Rent a camper and experience a camptastic holiday – with your roadsurfer! Be free!
