Meet the California Family
Volkswagen has been giving kiwi families the freedom to adventure since the peace-loving moments of the 60s with the iconic Kombi. Since then, we’ve taken our love for this classic European‑built campervan and coupled it up with the latest modern-day technologies, safety features, and a 5-year warranty to bring you a new generation of freedom.

It’s a family thing
Volkswagen was a part of growing up for Dave’s family in the 70s with their T2 ‘58 1200. Nowadays his son Andy has a restored ‘65 T2 panel van and his daughter Jenny still has the 1302 that she brought in 1991. Check out their awesome family photo Dave shot in 1971.
From beach to chapel
Knut Erbs brought his 1973 Type 2 Kombi back in 1984 to use as a holiday camping van for his young family. Since then, in 2011 he restored it for his daughter’s wedding and now uses it to take her and her family on camping holidays. He says it’s like a member of the family. Here’s a picture he shot of his pride and joy while out exploring around the South Island.
Freedom to grow
Meet Cynthia Qiu and Michael Speth and their 10-year-old twin boys Lin and Li. “It makes everything so much easier. In a camervan of this size you can go anywhere and park anywhere,” she says. Their new Grand California has provided plenty of adventures. “It’s a good way to bring up children – it really adds a lot of flavour to our life.”
