WeDream OfEagles: @Maglevspiritualgeek What is the chicken tax?
bully1981: how can you be happy to forget the T3?
VolkswagenTube: They waited until they could go in the bushes by the lake. Or they had
their front seats converted to porta-potties maybe?
S. Strauss: I saw this thing in a Berlin showroom 4 years ago! WTF I don't understand
why they won't bring this thing to the states again!
Oldbigchief: Now -sorrowfully- you are positively right, fella! Only in a month learnt
to see 'em lovely T3's down the highway. (Sigh!)
Ufuk Top: Bu Yaa qeRisi yaLan
Maglevspiritualgeek: freak the chicken tax
GonsalvoDeCordova: Baby boomers are getting to the age where finding a restroom on a frequent
basis is an issue. VW needs to make a T5 full camper for the US market with
a poptop and a toilet. I've seen octogenerians "steering" 30+ foot rigs,
and they would probably rather be driving a T5! So would I. :^)
BlackGTR: Which side is the steering located from mexico? That plan sounds
gilia3n: The new VW T5 California is not a Westfalia Camper. It is a real
Volkswagen. It is a great Camper
Khalil Fattahi: There is a huge vacume in US market for this great Camper. I don't get it:
Doesn't VW company want to sel and make money? Then bring it to US , where
you will sell 5 times more than all of Europe market. People are buying
used 2003 Westfalia campers in US for almost it's original price, when they
have 100,000 miles on them. hear me VW?
funkyblackmonkey1: do they do 6 seater in this
sarrois: would be worth the 25 % plus, best car we ever had......
A Han: Your home is where you are . Unless you live in California , the state . :P
Marius356: @VolkswagenTube You made my day. I would really like to know if these guys
at Volkswagen marketing know how silly this is.
beachwould: VW America is lagging... why are they holding back?? Time will tell in the
current 'f*^ed' American Economy. Hope to see one of these in "California".
jdmx: Does anybody recognize this song? I've looked everywhere
arokhampa: do they sell this in sydney
dadoVRC: Westfalia's camper are the best for two person for a week end. If you have
to do a trip of one or more weeks the "westy" is too little.
aLwayss143: I like vw ):
MGM12: Hope a serial killer didn't get them.
cometomicke: I would go into the bushes, or sit ontop of a rock viewing the great
scenery, maybe the sunset while doing my crapty business, better not do it
inside, it may smell bad!!!
ollie3: Very nice. But - given the small dimensions - I guess it has no toilet,
shower, hasn't it?
cometomicke: don´t they ever crap?
ahutch70: So contact VW head office and find out where you can buy it then ..
aydin58523: hayat boş al bi california coş:)
rlacrl: Very nice , but only for weekends...
zanzaman: So wrong.... It's called VW California and has nothing to do with
Westfalia, but only the name California which VW bought back from Westfalia
to use it on it's T5 camper version
Oldbigchief: Just picked the keys of my new California four days ago. Real
sate-of-the-art wonder camper van. Forgot instantaneously my old beloved T3
after 300.000 happy kms. This is a little space ship!
enryplast: vw is the best
dtballer23: Why can't they sell them here! VW, you hear!!!
newmillshaker: we are now a long way from a inexpensive way of enjoying this planet arent
we? T3 california owner.
grippymchew: No California for California. How ironic...
MELEMANA: What is this song please?
Regino gomez saez: Gene Kelly
fakemailha: I want one so bad
Essayify: This deserves 5 stars, not 4 1/2!
VolkswagenTube: Either they waited until they got to the lake to go in the bushes ---- or
---- they converted their front seats to Porta-Potty seats. I would go with
the Porta-Potty seats myself. Maybe with a holding tank and a flush peddle.
Oh, yea, then turn the Glove compartment into a Fridge.
Emre Can TURAN: wonderful vehicle. t5 forever..:)
zachys85: Oh, and the T5 in Mexico comes in Diesel with a 5 speed and it gets double
the gas mileage of the USA VW Eurovan with the gas automatic. VW bring back
the diesels to the USA. This van gets 30 to 33+/-mpg! The 2009 VW van (aka
Dodge Caravan) is going to be the end to the camper, because even if you
extend that van like the EVC you still have a small interior in comparison
to the 200+ cu ft of the EVC.
Essayify: I wish it was available in the USA! it's so cool! :(
Tony Lin: anybody know the name of this song?
hypo383: do they come in 4 motion?
zachys85: You can buy one in Mexico. Mexico has had the T5 for sale for years
including the California. Now the USA won't allow you to legally register
it in the USA, so the way to get around this is to swap VIN numbers of a
Eurovan. (and hope you don't run into a vw van fanatic officer who knows
the difference.) Or get a regular T5 van and a Eurovan Camper and cutaway
the cabs (swap) for about $10k to do the job. (with VIN number swap of
course and hope nobody notices.)
Pablowsky DS: Does anyone recognize the song? I guess the are australian cause this vid
is taken from the New Zeland's VW website
MicrotekMybisi: I miss the flowers and Peace signs.... Man.
zachys85: One last thing, the California is a regular wheel based camper where as the
Eurovan Camper is extended 15 to 18 inches, which makes quite a big
difference. The California is somewhere between the Camper and Weekender.
So cutaway a T5 cab and weld it onto a EVC then you have the best of both
worlds. Just a thought.
jeroguru: Menudo pepinazo!!!!!
Tee Jay: @sparmtacus Yeah..... the Volkswagen California is not name Californe.
vaiol123: Anyone know the name of the song?
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
