Owners of Volkswagen California camper vans are sitting pretty after data from automotive experts reveals that the vehicles are experiencing very little depreciation, making them a much sought after investment for motorists who love life on the road.
Based on the 2.0 California TDI BlueMotion Tech Beach 150 5dr DSG model (1767 plat), the depreciation is 3% of its original cost new (£44,022) meaning a one year old model with 10,000 miles will sell for £42,750, holding 97% of its value.
Similarly, a three year old model with 30k miles (1565 Plate) will retail for £34,250, holding 83% of its original cost new of £41,280.
Experts at cap hpi believe the strong values are being boosted by the increase in ‘staycations’ rather than overseas holidays coupled with the ongoing appeal of retro and vintage living. With many families feeling the pinch in 2018, an estimated 57% of holidaymakers stayed on home soil this tourist season.
