This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

just putting this out there as a bit different. if your into or thinking about joining the camper-van crew but want a little luxury then this would be a good starter. i know its a lot of money but its also a lot of Van.

price £457.96x23 months
Initial rental inc VAT£4,121.60 (Plus admin fee, £195)
Annual miles:5,000

total for 2 years £14849.68
Additional mileage charge is usually 7.2p per mile, so £72 for every 1000 miles you go over which is nothing really.
its a £47 grand van, 2 year olds are going for £30k on ebay. so you save £2k - £3k and you can give it back and no debt!!

Ok, so here is what it would cost you if you walked into a dealer and wanted to buy it. So you do the math, if you want to spend £53k over 3 years crack on!! Or you could lease it for £15k and hand it back with NO DEBT!!! After 2 years. Don't worry about the mileage as I've already said it's only £72 per 1000 miles

. Almost £15k for 2 years. Think I’d rather stay in five star hotels, cooked breakfast and a cleaner included.
At 5k miles you will be doing most of your camping on the driveway
On 5k miles per year you won’t get to see much of the UK let alone a California Beach
Id rather buy a 4 year old one at 15k. I'm not anti lease deals but this is bad

Do they really drop that cheap after 4 years ? cheapest on auto trader is 30k for a 2010.

Sorry. Based on OPs info of 30k after 2 years.
30k for a 10 year old?!
My neighbours have got one. I couldn't believe how much they paid for a two year old one.
46 grand new, don't depreciate like a car would, a bit specialist, you'd be lucky to get one for less than 35 grand at 2 years. I like the idea though
Crazy money.
5k a year? Sounds like local ASDA carpark every weekend...
5k miles is probably about average. You will not be using this for your daily commute to work and once the novelty has worn off its going to be sat on your drive for big chunks of the year.
Fair play OP for posting something a bit out of the ordinary.

However £15k for 2 years is a big commitment, so unless you love camping and plan on using it on a regular basis it may be better to hire one for about £500 or so for the weeks you plan on using it.

If you do love camping then that money would go quite some way to getting something that could be kept long term.

I thought the advantage of getting a camper this small would be that you could commute in it.

Seems an outrage to me, I could get five decent foreign cruises / holidays for the £15k that cost.

Just for yourself, or for a family of four/five?

I get the point thought, I'd rather have lots of holidays than a camper van.

Just us as a couple obviously, any more than three in this camper wouldn't be too comfortable IMHO.

I like campervans and intend to buy one when I retire but when I do I will be doing 30+ long weekends a year really making the most of it, and however this deal just doesn't make sense as you'll be really limited in mileage to get the £15k value back.
You could be away every weekend in this if that's your thing
5k mileage allowance

That'll cover the mileage taking it back for a service

They don't depreciate much, as you say, which makes me think the lease isn't a great deal.

Do elaborate....
You can buy a decent second hand Hymer class A for 15K, you can sleep, defecate and shower in it, as it has all the bells and whistles and is ultimately better built, it may not have the new reg plate, but the satisfaction of knowing it is yours and you can do as many or as few miles as you like is freedom, which is the point of such a vehicle, this VW thing is just another status symbol/fad thing and is as shallow as those who buy them.....I have had my Hymer 6 years now and it is still worth what I paid for it, now that is the ultimate hot deal......Not a fashion accessory which exemplifies just how shallow you really are!

Yeah I agree not much of a deal, it's fun though and I'm sure somebody will benefit from this in the right circumstances, it's that freedom thing and if they have the disposable income it could work for them
Hymer not cheap either, just had a quick look. Bonkers

More than likely had more sense than to buy a VW campervan!
If it wasn't for the Hippie 1960's nostalgia people wouldn't buy these overpriced 'mini buses'.

Every weekend you say

5,000 miles divided by 52 weekends = 96 miles per weekend

So in other words you can drive a whopping 48 miles away from your home each weekend before you have to turn back around and head home

Detroit powered? - also, Is it a mint black and chrome one, that perhaps does steam rallies? I saw one the other day (near a steam rally) and had to stop to get a better look as it went past, it was gorgeous.
Hi everyone,

I’ve been asked to provide my bank account details in a lease proposal form from VW. Is this normal practice? I don’t understand why they would need my account details at this stage.

How did they ask you?
Under GDPR regulations they can only get that with your express written permission and must state EXACTLY why they need it, who they will share it with and how long they will retain it.
The residuals you quoted are tosh, Californias only lose about 2-3K per year, one of the best vehicles out there for depreciation. Buy it and sell it after 3 years and it probably have only cost you 7-9k max. Poor deal I'm afraid.

It was on the proposal form. I don’t mind giving them the details as long as there’s legitimate reason. Did anyone have to give yours as a part of your application?
