#RVLIFE/CAMPERVAN: Volkswagen’s ‘Mobile Home in a Box’ Is a Modular Camping Solution for Avid Travelers

BY Sergiu Tudose—Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles have unveiled a range of mini-mobile camping units, which include a kitchen area, bed, water supply and sufficient storage space for most avid travelers. The so-called ‘mobile home in a box’ can fit into existing luggage compartments and can be deployed literally in seconds, both the kitchen and the bed. The latter unfolds in a single movement.

According to VW Commercial Vehicles, demand for camping equipment has gone up in the past year, with lots of Brits feeling hampered by the pandemic – a trend that is expected to continue, with 52% of people saying they intend to spend their holidays in the UK this year.

Anyway, let’s talk about the gear, specifically the range-topping BusBox, which is compatible with the VW Caravelle T5/T6/T6.1, and it comes with a bed, mattress, kitchen area (space for a two-burner stove), extendable storage area and the water supply, as previously stated. As for the price, it’s £3,340 ($4,500).

Now, in the Caravelle and California Beach Tour models, the BusBox is available without a mattress, which is why it also costs less at £2,555 ($3,460). Meanwhile, the so-called KombiBox, which is available for the Caddy, comes with a bed, kitchen area, water supply and cargo space, all for £2,760 ($3,740). You can also get a folding mattress as a standalone accessory, priced at £495 ($670).

“Our new camping accessory range makes travel more convenient for customers by combining all travel essentials, from utilities to water supply, in a smartly designed, comfortable, and compact space. Developing accessories that make our customers’ lives easier is a high priority at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, which is why our one-stop-shop mobile home in a box is a great solution for those planning a camping holiday.”

VW Commercial Vehicles exec, James Allitt.

Such products are simply the latest in a long line of camping options available through VW Commercial Vehicles, for models ranging from the compact Caddy to the iconic California or the flagship Grand California.
