Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has detailed its ‘GEN2’ Crafter Kampervan by Jayco, which will see another run of 60+ vehicles produced locally in collaboration with the recreational vehicle specialist throughout this year.

    Priced from $157,990 plus on-road costs for the Style and $165,490 before on-roads for the All-Terrain, the 2024 Volkswagen Crafter Kampervan has seen equipment enhancements as well as a claimed uplift in quality, largely based on consumer feedback.

    While the initial allocation for GEN2 is quoted as the same “60+ units” as GEN1 for the remainder of 2024, the company has promised it’s working with its factory in Germany to secure more Crafter base units in 2025 to increase its Kampervan capacity.

    As with the original, the 2024 Volkswagen Crafter Kampervan by Jayco is fully backed by VW’s five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty as well as five years of standard roadside assistance. These are also manufactured in Melbourne by Jayco, making this quite the localised project.
