Camper vans provide a unique way to live and travel with very minimal cost to the owner. The fact that you can drive almost anywhere and immediately be ready to camp is enough to make anyone want one. For the past couple of years the demand has increased tremendously with more and more people wanting to tap into their adventurous side.
Volkswagen has unveiled the Caddy California – a daily driver camper van that can sleep two people, has a kitchen, plus a tent that sleeps two additional people. The German auto manufacturer is one of the biggest players in the camper van industry and has spearheaded the trend for years. From ventilated windows, storage areas, and an optional panoramic glass top, the Caddy California has it all. More can be discovered about Volkswagen’s latest innovation here.
Despite carrying the name of a U.S. state, the Caddy California will only be available in Europe.
Fear not though because U.S. customers might soon have their own style camper. Rumor has it that Jeep is working on integrating an RV into their Gladiator. A concept was developed and originally set to debut at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari in April, but the event was canceled in light of COVID-19.
The head of Jeep brand for North America, Jim Morrison made a statement saying,
“Building on the popularity of last year’s Gladiator Wayout concept, and as overlanding continues to grow in popularity, this year’s Farout concept is another opportunity to gather feedback from our passionate customer base.”
