As a further highlight, Volkswagen is bringing a California in XXL format to the Caravan Salon with the Crafter. Initially referred to as a study, it is six meters long and two meters wide, as well as a high roof for plenty of space, including headroom in the living area. A seating group is located in front of the bed, and front seats that can be rotated by 180 degrees expand the living area. The kitchen, including a refrigerator and two-burner stove, protrudes slightly into the opening of the sliding door. The wet cell with shower and toilet can be pulled out - this leaves more space in the living area.
New in the camper segment is the manufacturer Carado with the Vlow model. Carado is offering the model in four layouts between 5.41 and 6.36 meters from EUR 38,799. A lamellar sliding door separates the bathroom from the living area, the seating area with half dinette is the same in all layoutsbig.
