Review

While there are cheaper van-based motorhomes, the fact that the Grand California is built in-house by Volkswagen and is covered by a comprehensive warranty will appeal to many. It’s also very well thought out inside and comes with plenty of appliances to make camping trips a piece of cake.

get the best price

The 600 is the shorter of the two Grand Californias, but its high roof means it's nothing if not family-friendly.

This 174bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine and eight-speed automatic gearbox are more than up to the job of motivating this 6.0m-long (or even 6.8m) motorhome in an easy, if relaxed, fashion.
