Summary

The VW Caddy Maxi Life is the second biggest MPV out there (as of 2021). If boot size is your primary criteria – you can’t go wrong with a Caddy. The car drives good too. Where it lacks a bit is comfort – it takes after it’s van origins and offers a more basic interior. But it makes up for it in storage – it really has a lot of compartments all over the place. It’s not the best car to take off the road completely – but you can take it down a good enough mud road without any big problems. A very good car camping / microcamping conversion candidate, unless you are planning to drive through forests and very much offroad – or you prefer a higher class interior comfort.
VW Caddy Maxi Life is one of the top cars in our 30+ cars for car camping table.

We try to make sure / verify it’s all compatible and fits well.

*regarding the Outdoor Revolution awning – according to the seller – “As long as the connection height of your van is between 180cm – 240cm this awning will fit fine.” The VW Caddy is 183 cm so this should work (if you have gutter rails, it’s even higher than that so ok).
