The Beach is also equipped as standard with a manual pop-top and two different layouts (2-deck seat with storage compartment or folding 3-seater bench with multiflex board). All this space is combined with the removable picnic table in the sliding door and the folding chairs in the tailgate.

With up to five seats it also offers kitchen with stainless steel sink, 42 liter cool box with insert basket and two burner gas stove with piezo ignition paired with lots of storage space.
The top of the range California Ocean has a very extensive standard equipment, among other things with auxiliary heating, Climatronic, double glazing, power closure for the doors and much more. The pop-up roof is operated electro-hydraulically and features dimmable LED lighting. A cup holder, ashtray holder and towel rail are also present. The integrated accessories such as camping chairs and table can be stored space savingly and securely fixed.
