Sure, there’s been attempts in subsequent decades to recapture the magic, with varying degrees of success.

Perhaps this vehicle could live up to the legend of its forefather?

It’s called the Volkswagen California XXL concept and it’s just been previewed by Volkswagen head office.

Based on the new-generation Volkswagen Crafter, the camper is set for a debut at a German caravan show in a fortnight.

Volkswagen tell us the vehicle, which is not yet confirmed for production, features an innovative body and interior layout that creates lots of space inside.

The California XXL concept boasts interior appointments including:

  • A two-metre long bed for two
  • Screened-off, spacious living area
  • Rotating front seats and a bench seat
  • Kitchen with twin-hob cooker, fridge, sink and extendable work surface
  • Wet room with shower and toilet (as seen below)
