Be. Piccard, the VW T6.1 family carriage
an everyday camper for families with 2 to 3 children, maybe even a dog. The vehicle should be manoeuvrable on the road while still being economical in terms of fuel consumption. True to its namesake, Bertrand Piccard, the camper is perfect for adventures from one end of the continent to the other. There are five full seats with Isofix security on the back seat. The bench seat can be folded down for sleeping, so that you can sleep comfortably on a width of over 150 cm. There are two more sleeping places in the pop-up roof.
THE BASIC CONSTRUCTION
Two sliding windows ensure a pleasant climate in the camper, with the tinted windows and the curtain system protecting you from prying eyes. The vehicle is completely insulated (floor and behind the panels), which ensures perfect soundproofing and good heat management. The floor is made of high-quality oak-look vinyl, while the side panels are covered with fine oak veneer. The body is felted in stone grey, which creates a cozy home feeling. The front passenger seat is equipped with a swivel seat console and can therefore be rotated towards the interior
Noble design for a comfortable home on wheels
THE ELECTRICS / HEATING
For cold winter nights, a 2 kW auxiliary heater is installed, which can be operated via a Comfort Control Panel with many functions. The board battery is installed ex works. There is also an outside socket to charge the battery from an external power source while stationary. The pleasant semi-indirect lighting on the ceiling can be operated via a dimmer switch, with reading lights that can be controlled separately for the rear area and additional lighting in the tailgate.
The individual furniture construction is made of 12 mm multiplex, covered with robust laminate, whereby the cover plate is made of rustic solid oak wood. Unbeatable in haptics and optics! The kitchen block is refined with an attachment washbasin and stainless steel fittings. 12 L fresh and gray water canisters are available for water. In addition, there are two spacious drawers in the Chuchichäschtli, as well as two open swallows' nests with indirect LED lighting and a USB socket. The Dometic fridge has a capacity of 45 L and even has a freezer function.
The seat can be converted into a sleeping bench in a matter of seconds and is supplemented by a visco topper for even more comfort. The seat also offers a lounge function, so you can relax either towards the tailgate or towards the driver's cabin, just like on the sofa at home. There is additional storage space in the seat itself, with two compartments that can be accessed via flaps and supplemented by a drawer. The compartments can be used as hatches, eg for skis. Part of the bench seat can be set up in the rear area so that high objects can be transported or placed in a horizontal position so that two levels can be loaded. The original VW California pop-up roof is equipped with a slatted frame and mattress.
