VW is running summer special offers on its camper range.

Volkswagen’s commercial vehicle division has launched a range of summer offers, which include finance deals on the desirable California motorhome, which available until September for just £449 a month on one of the company’s Solutions PCP deals. 

Of course, you’ll need to put a hefty deposit down – £11,801.30 if you want to get the £450 deal – but Volkswagen has said that it will give buyers a £2,000 deposit contribution as a sweetener. 

Did we mention the £21,800 optional final payment if you want to keep the California after the 36-month PCP period? But still, £449 a month. 

Volkswagen says that the latest figures show that more families are choosing to holiday in the UK than ever before, with estimates showing that the current number of caravans and motorhomes on British roads – 755,000 – could rise up to around 889,000 by 2030.
