Generations of Freedom

Generations of Freedom

A Volkswagen is much more than just a campervan. It’s built on a heritage of travel. It’s that old kombi you’d pile into in summer. It’s what gives kiwi families the freedom to explore our roads and adventure off them. Volkswagen was there with you on your journey decades ago and with the all‑new California campervan range, it will continue to be there for generations to come.

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.”
