Volkswagen has presented the new Caddy California, a modular motorhome with a bed, a kitchen and a tent.
The automobile manufacturer has long been a major manufacturer in the motorhome industry. The new Caddy California belongs to the fifth generation of the Caddy family and is the third California motorhome model in the series, which already includes the Grand California and the T6.1 California.
But in contrast to the other two California models, the motorhome based on the Caddy was built as a “compact motorhome” according to the manufacturer.
VW isn’t the only mainstream automaker involved in the increasingly popular small house on wheels business. For example, Ford has its own Nugget and Big Nugget: two RVs built into a Ford Transit truck. And recently Jeep reaffirmed its role in the segment of tiny houses on wheels, as the company presented a concept pickup 2021 Gladiator with a roof tent and other equipment.
Although it bears the name of a US state, the California will only be available in the EU.
