Hire before you buy

Hire a VW California Ocean before you buy?

New 2019 VW California Ocean

In the ten seasons since our foundation in 2011 Active Kampers have introduced nearly 1,000 hirers to campervanning with a VW California, now the VW California Ocean. We have also sold 12 of these campervans, most to prior customers, as we have renewed our fleet in the autumn. Many more have bought a campervan after hiring too!

We know all the features and quirks of our vans as we use them ourselves for UK and European campervan road trips. Our favourite three destinations at the moment seem to be Dorset (great for a quick weekend break) with good walks and so many traditional English things to do. Cornwall of course, for beaches, surfing, coastal walks and quaint places. Finally, a year rarely goes by without a trip to South West France, from the castle studies Loire valley to the majestic snow capped Pyrenees, for beaches, SUP surf, kayak, wine, BBQ’s, multi day treks, so fantastic and very accessible via the nearby Newhaven ferry crossing or the convenient Eurotunnel.  So I guess we’re pretty experienced if somewhat biased on the merits of campervanning in the VW California!

Anyway we have these wonderful VW California Ocean campervans available for hire which is a great way of testing whether the leading compact campervan on the market is the right choice for you. When you hire from us you don’t just pick up the keys and drive off you get any advice you need from where to camp,  alongside a full induction of the vehicle features.

This winter and spring  is a great time to road test the California with quiet sites and brightening days and lower rates than the summer. Also we are taking delivery of a brand new 2021 VW California Ocean 6.1 with upgraded features. We are one of very few hire companies to have this model, which will be available from 1st March.

So if you are thinking of purchasing a VW California Ocean why not hire before you buy and please do road test it for a weekend with us first. Even if you are considering a different VW based campervan, e.g a bespoke conversion, it’s well worth hiring the VW California for inspiration and ideas.
