Westfalia’s Kepler Sixty is a thoroughly pleasing blend of modern and classic design, which – if you’ll pardon the rather extended metaphor – should both catch the eye and bring smiles to faces. You can take it as red. And white, of course. It’s not cheap, though.
Clever shower with a suction pad holder
Modern main furniture unit
Cab screens seem an afterthought
The lower bed is on the narrow side
Lacks the sophistication of the class leader
The smart two-tone paintwork is a real attention-grabber. The red-and-white theme continues inside, too.
The Westfalia Kepler Sixty looks a million dollars and starts just short of £60,000, including a ‘basic’ £58,052 OTR, plus the pretty much indispensable Kepler Pack at £1615. Our test ‘van, with a few other ‘essential’ extras, costs some £69,179.
The Kepler's rear seat is a triumph of engineering over aesthetics. Like the VW California, it's on rails, so you can switch between optimising boot space and floorspace
The kitchen adopts the usual combined hob/sink format, although the gas burners are diametrically opposed – in theory, that means you can use larger pans.
Adjacent is a 40-litre top-loading compressor fridge, while also at the kitchen end of this unit there are neat drawers (one with a cutlery tray).
The larger of the two double beds is in the pop-up roof space. It’s arguably the more comfortable, thanks to the one-piece mattress and Froli-Type plastic springing.
The main cupboard has a fixed shelf, so it won’t house, for example, a portable toilet.
There is, however, twin wardrobes, each with a hanging rail and removable shelving, so you can use the storage space here according to preference.
