VW Caledonia SX

If you love the idea of owning an iconic old VW camper, but need something practical, reliable and new, my VW Caledonia SX is perfect for you

The name Volkswagen is practically synonymous with campervans in many people's minds. So we're happy to offer our own range of Volkswagen campervans, based on the latest Transporter vans, with their excellent reliability, low-emission Euro 6 diesel engines with AdBlue, fitted out with all the 21st Century luxuries you'd expect.

When I first jumped into my VW T6-based campervan I was pleased to find that it feels like a car, and has plenty of oomph to get up hills or cruise on the motorway. My VW Caledonia SX looks big, but it's shorter than some estate cars, such as the BMW 5 series, so you can drive it anywhere. I think it's pretty eye-catching, too - a new VW icon in the making. You'll turn heads in this vehicle, so don't forget to give a friendly wave to fellow campervan drivers on country roads.

The reliable VW T6 sips fuel, achieving up to an astonishing 46 combined MPG. Choose from two engine sizes and a five- or six-speed gearbox - or even Volkswagen's diesel 'automatic' - the DSG. The latest VW vans are all designed to make driving a dream. Whether you're touring French vineyards for three weeks, seeking sun, sea, and paella in Spain, or visiting friends in England, the VW Caledonia SX is a fantastic home from home.

All our new campervans come with our latest SX system - an underslung LPG tank and heater, with an external BBQ point. The LPG tank powers the heating and twin-burner hob.  Plus there's a fantastic new user-friendly control panel. From this control panel you can switch the LED lights on and off individually, turn the gas supply, fridge and heater on and off. There are dials to tell you how much LPG is left in the tank, and also the condition of both the vehicle and leisure batteries. There are even circuit-breakers on the panel - and everything is easy to use. 

We can build you your own VW Caledonia SX (SWB) from around £39,995 ("brand new secondhand") or from £47,995 (brand new) and you can specify many extra design touches, to make it uniquely yours.

Becoming the proud owner of your own custom campervan is a lot easier then you think

Help with your campervan purchase

Purchasing your campervan through Sussex Campervans couldn't be easier, with our finance partner. Just a 10% deposit will secure your vehicle and we can tailor a finance package that best suits your needs – for example you may be considering financing just the vehicle and you may wish to pay for the conversion yourself. We can be very flexible in what we can offer and will work with your monthly budget and deposit requirements. Just ask us for more details.

We will also accept your current vehicle in part-exchange against the purchase of your campervan.

We offer a complete servicing and repair package, as well as your recommended yearly habitation check. Talk to us about 25% off your first year's habitation check.

Winterising your campervan

Using your campervan over winter is the best way way to look after it but sometimes this is not always possible and you may not get a chance to get out in it for several months. Preparing your van for winter is really important to ensure the longevity of your vehicle and its components. We can make those necessary safety checks to the water and heating systems for you to ensure you can make a quick getaway when spring arrives!

How we make your campervan dreams come true

During your visit, let's talk about how you want to use your campervan and look at all the gorgeous fabrics and furniture colours that you can have if you choose our 'Built To Order' service. If you have a hobby or specialist equipment to get on board, perhaps we can customise the campervan to make life easier? After our discussions we'll prepare a specification for your approval.

Once you're happy with the design and specification we'll ask for a deposit of £1,000 to book the workshop time for us to build your new campervan.

We'll order your new base vehicle and ask you for half the price we take delivery of it.

Then we'll get to work to make your dreams a reality. We'll ask for the final payment once everything is finished and ready for you - a couple of days before the excitement of handover day.

And once you have purchased your campervan – we offer a full range of servicing and after-care including repairs, MOTs, Winterisation Service and Habitation Service.

Think you may want some extra modifications or upgrades? We're here to help you with that too.

Could not have been more helpful
I came away with the distinct feeling that Sussex Campervans is a company I can trust, which is pretty good for a first impression. I was met as soon as I arrived (without an appointment). They could not have been more helpful, showing me everything I wanted to see, and volunteering a lot more.
