Volkswagen Australia partnered with local RV manufacturer Jayco to create the ultimate, go-anywhere Campervan equipped with amenities you expect to find in an Airbnb.
The Crafter Kampervan range is available exclusively in the Volkswagen dealer network, backed by a five-year unlimited-kilometer warranty.
After two years of development with extensive tests at Anglesea Proving Ground in Victoria, the Volkswagen Crafter Kampervan is now the new halo vehicle within the Volkswagen’s lineup which comprises the Caddy California and Multivan California.
At 6.8 meters long and 2 meters wide, it’s the biggest vehicle in Volkswagen’s range.
In July, this exclusive model of the LWB 4Motion Crafter will be available in three versions: Kampervan, Kampervan Style, and Kampervan all-terrain. The latter is equipped with Seikel off-road components such as a 30mm lift kit.
With more than 45 years of experience in Australia, manufacturing over 220,000 vehicles, Jayco has the expertise to customize the Crafter Kampervan with a fit-out exclusively for Volkswagen, which includes essential and mandatory mod cons.
The Crafter Kampervan allows a 4-Motion all-wheel drive. It has seating for four, sleeping for up to three, and multiple dining and seating areas. It also features fresh and wastewater tanks, an internal bathroom including a sink, toilet and shower, an external shower, and a kitchen with a two-burner gas cooktop, microwave, fridge, sink, freshwater tap, storage, and bench space.
Users of the campervan can enjoy reverse cycle air-conditioning, a TV and DVD audio system with internal and external speakers, a lithium 120Ah house battery with supplementary 200W solar system, diesel heating, a hot water system, an LED lighting inside and out, external Fiamma awning, and a WiFi extender.
The engine behind the latest Crafter Kampervan is Volkswagen’s 2.0TDI Bi-turbo 410, which produces 130kW power, and 410Nm torque sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. It includes a standard 75L fuel tank.
