The freedom of van life and road tripping is enjoyed by more folks than you know, and for some, it’s a year-round lifestyle. And thanks to modern Volkswagen vans, you don’t have to rough it like a dirty hippie. Now, the brand has unveiled a special California 30 Years van that celebrates the iconic vehicle’s 30 years of roaming the earth unfettered by office cubicles and house utility bills. The van sports all the features that make the versatile California so great and so livable, including a kitchenette, pop-up sleeper compartment, a full-length cabin bed, and oodles of storage. But the 30 Years also gets an external shower, auxiliary heater, insulated double-pane windows for overnight warmth, pretty 17-inch wheels, special anniversary badging, and plenty of active and passive safety features. Only 999 of these recreational wonders will be made, and though the 30 Years van would be the perfect “westward ho!” transport here in the states, the painful irony lies in the fact that a van named “California” won’t be sold in America.
