Buy all your VW California Accessories at the Club Shop Visit Shop
Liking your shopping list - the essentials! For your Gaz bottles, just make sure a gas shut off valve attachment (90deg type) comes with the van. One we hired as a new van 2 years ago didn’t, and we had to quickly scrat around to get one.Due to collect our ocean this week. Bought a ridge monkey, outwell fall crest and hill crest panels, porta potty 335, awning tie down straps, steel peg hammer, 2 x campingaz 907 bottles, 25 Mt hook up cable. Looking forward to our first trip.
After seeing your post i just bought 3. They look great. Thanks.Hi I tried to limit myself to a few key items before van arrival (S2S mattress, outwell fallcrest, ridge monkey, kettle) but as it’s getting nearer I can’t resist adding to the underbed van stash! Just ordered these cushion/blankets (from reviews it seems all the buyers are campervan owners) and some lovely melamine stuff from Rice dk.
Use as a quilt, blanket throw or cushion Easy to transform, fold it and zip it! Save on storage space Cushion: 45cm x 45cm Quilt: 190cm x 140cm Composition: 100% Polyester Machine wash at 30 degrees Quishion is the space-saving, combination cushion and quilt you won’t believe you haven’t already...www.ibeani.co.uk
Thanks for the tips everyone!

Few weeks a go we went out for 2 weeks and took some learnings from that, resulting in the following recent buys:
- Trailer, modested sized that we will use as a garage and to bring more stuff with us. Today we use a 2second pop-up tent but we find it a hassle to pack/clean when we move-on to another spot again.
- Awening, found a good second hand -> https://www.obelink.nl/obelink-paradise-vk-bustent.html
- Backdoor slide-out storage drawer (we already where using the euro boxes)- from gruenthal-mobilecamping.de (800mm edition)
- Extra drawer for back seat -> https://vwcampershop.nl/top-volgens-rob/extra-banklade/
- Storage box between kitchen and driver seat -> https://vwcampershop.nl/top-volgens-rob/prullenbakje/
- New cold water tap - previous owner mounted an outdoor hose instead, which is super inconvienient (two knobs to push to tap water, on tap itself + on the hose)
Things under investigation, but mentally already took ownership on
- Winnerwell Nomad View stove (for heat, outdoor cooking, baking, campfire)
- Dutch oven
- De Buyer steelpan
Depends on how much you have in the pub
Yes, but just one smallish tray for everything (unless you give up another space somewhere else) so go easy! We just put in spares from our kitchen when we got the van (18 months ago) and haven't actually bought very much extra - just a couple of small silicone stirrers and a mini grater.
Grey Silicone tools, all from John Lewis/ Waitrose I think, and all small size : scraper, stirrer, spatula, serving spoon, tongs (with lock on). Plus, bamboo mini chopping board, small whisk, 2 small kitchen knives, beer handle, and of course a wine bottle opener. We regularly rethink what we carry and take out stuff not being used - such as a ladle (too big) and grater (never used). It’s all got to earn a ride.
I bought it on eBay I think but they are in stock here:Love the duvet cover, where did you get it from?
Bought a cobb grill. The misses said - why do you need another BBQ as you have 4 already. To which I replied - don’t think of it as BBQ think of it as a portable oven. The result being I’ve committed to cooking a tandoori on Saturday and roast beef, roast spuds, yorkshires etc in Sunday whilst camping. Should be fun. I say I bought a cobb, which I did, and was clear on the price for that but didn’t go into details on the price of accessories. Ended up buying pretty much every accessory they do (chopping board, griddle, fry pan, wok, BBQ grill, roast rack, dome extension, cooking utensils and rotisserie). I’m a keen cook so will get plenty of use out of them.
Mine is an aftermarket storage 'drawer', not a VW original.Hi, does the extra drawer for the rear seat come with all the runners and fixings?
