Volkswagen has launched a selection of mini-mobile camping units for its range of campervan and lifestyle vehicles.
Camping has boomed in popularity since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, with 52% of Brits saying they intend to take their holidays in the UK this year, and Volkswagen’s ‘mobile home in a box’ is intended to make life easier for those taking a road trip.
The range of modular units fit into existing luggage compartments and provide travel essentials, including a kitchen area, bed, water supply, and storage space. The kitchen can be ready in a few seconds and the bed unfolds in a single movement making life easy out on the road.
While the range starts at £495 for a folding comfort mattress, there’s quite a range of options available. At the top is the multi-purpose BusBox for Volkswagen Caravelle users. This £3,340 unit includes a bed, mattress, kitchen area (with space for a two-burner stove), extendable storage area, and water supply.
For Caravelle and California Beach Tour owners, the BusBox is available without a mattress, priced at £2,555. The KombiBox, which can be installed into the Volkswagen Caddy in minutes, offers bed, kitchen area, water supply, and cargo space, and is priced at £2,760.
The products are the latest addition to Volkswagen’s range of camping options, from the compact Caddy to the iconic California, and the range-topping Grand California. Each is available to lease at impressively affordable rates, with the optional ‘mobile home in a box’ units available as simple dealer-supplied accessories.
James Allitt, Head of Aftersales at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said:
“Our new camping accessory range makes travel more convenient for customers by combining all travel essentials, from utilities to water supply, in a smartly designed, comfortable, and compact space. Developing accessories that make our customers’ lives easier is a high priority at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, which is why our one-stop-shop mobile home in a box is a great solution for those planning a camping holiday.”
