- Volkswagen T5 California SE
- 2.5 4Motion
- Jan 2008
Just wanted to send you some photos of our trip up to the far north of Scotland. The vehicle behaved very well and was particularly useful when we needed to sleep one night away from the chosen campsite near Lochinver in order for the four of us to climb Ben Hope (the most northerly Munro). It was not appropriate to take the van up Ben Hope, but it got us as close to it as possible! Later in the trip near Glen Affric the vehicles 4 Motion ability was useful along slippery forestry tracks. We saw quite a lot of large campervans, including a 32' one struggling along the narrow lanes. I think I would have been terrified driving one of those monsters on "single track with passing place" roads! In contrast the California was no different to driving a large car.
Since we have had the vehicle it's had quite a lot of use. The trip to the north saw it do 1700 miles in two weeks. Being totally new to the world of campervans back in February, we were very glad to have bought the vehicle from VW Campersales as it meant we did not have to go through the lottery of a dealership sales pitch. We were able to properly look at examples of the vehicle and deal with a company that obviously had a wealth of experience and sound advice to give. Your after sales help has also been excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking for a VW camper van.
With many thanks and best wishes,
Peter, Rosemary, James and Mark
