We’d like to introduce “Cali” to you.
Born in 1972 and at 41 years old he is the oldest and as such we like to think of him as the big brother of our fleet. Cali is known as a cross over model in the VW community which is the year that VW started to give the bay window a facelift. He still has the lower front indicators and the wraparound bumper more common with the “early bay” models but has the larger rear lights that are more common with the “late bay” models. Cali came to us at the end of 2011 from sunny California and is settling nicely into his new Caledonian home (this may give some clue where his name came from). We gave him an exterior re-spray in white over Saltire blue, the interior was built and fitted by VW type 2 interiors. Cali has been fitted with a brand new 1.8 litre air-cooled engine at the tail end of 2012.

Cali’s interior has a “Rock & Roll” bed fitted which acts as a bench seat by day for when you’re travelling or having a break which then transforms into a comfortable bed by night for sleeping.  There is a 38 Litre fridge for storing food and drink and cupboard space for storing dry food, clothes, etc.

Cali comes with a sink/stove combination unit which means you have a supply of running water. There is a 20 Litre LPG tank which is located underneath the camper; this is used to supply gas to the 2 stove gas hob and the propex heating system. Our LPG gas tank stores enough gas for over a month’s continual use without the need to be re-filled giving you one less hassle on your trip and as its stored underneath this means it’s not taking up any of the valuable space inside. Safety is our top priority here at Carty’s Campers which is why each of our campers undergo annual checks from a gas safety registered engineer and adhere to their very strict safety checks.

Quite a bit has changed in the last 41 years which is why we’ve added a few mod cons. These include
  • A CD player that has the capability for use of your MP3 player (we supply the cable required)
  • Cigarette lighter which is ideal for charging your phone/mp3 player etc.
  • 240v socket. Therefore if you are on a campsite with 240v hook up capabilities you will be able to use any electrical appliances you would normally use in your house. (we supply the hook up cable).
  • There is also a portable DVD player and PSP available upon request at no extra charge.
  • Sat Nav supplied upon request at no extra charge.
