Gibsea is known for his life full of travels. It’s been a few kilometres since he was born! Despite the fact of being a soon-to-be veteran, he is full of the energy of a young one and ready to conquer the hidden spots of beautiful Norway! Great classic Volkswagen California is ready for you!
Like all our campervans, Gibsea’s home is in Sandefjord town, 15 minutes from Torp Airport (TRF) and 1,5 hours from Oslo. Those three locations are where we personally deliver the campervans to you. Both Sandefjord and Oslo are great starting points to embark on an unforgettable campervan road trip in Norway.
This compact VW campervan is a well-designed vehicle with lots of smart functions. In the front, you will find two single seats, both on a swivel base. The rear seat comes with two seat belts and works as a foldable bed for two as well. The second bed for two is found under the pop-up roof, which can also be secured to the ceiling while open and gives you enough space to stand in the car. The pop-up roof has side “walls” made out of tent fabric with insect nets in its windows. Sleeping bags follow in the campervan, together with pillows, sheets and bedding. To have nice and cosy nights on your trip in whatever weather, the campervan comes with a parking heater that can run for a whole night.
The indoor kitchen comes with a double gas stove fueled by a 2 kg gas bottle, a sink with running water (cold) and 30 l fresh and grey water tanks. The top loading 30 l fridge will keep your beer cold. The cupboard is filled with all the necessary dishes and utensils you might need for your camping cooking.
The back of the campervan has several small storage places, great for your personal things that you need to have by hand. Gibsea is a compact campervan and the space for your luggage is limited. If you wish to explore Norway on bicycles, a bike rack can be added to your rental of a VW California campervan.
All electric devices such as a fridge, lights, USB outlets and a diesel heater are powered by two leisure batteries that charge while you drive. If you need more power, you can connect the campervan to 220 V at camping sites. Charge your devices by plugging them into USB ports or you can add a voltage converter to your campervan rental and charge at 220 V while driving.
For the ultimate comfort during the driving part of your journey, Gibsea has a rear camera, comfy armrests, storage compartments in the cab, AUX input, a radio to play and just as in all of our campervans a phone holder. It is a manual transmission vehicle and runs on diesel. Its 80-litre tank can drive you up to 1000 km away!
