While most of us dream of living a life on the road, that reality is often crushed due to the high price and large footprint of most modern RVs or adventure vans. Mercedes-Benz has had its eye on the gap in the pop-up van market and has answered back with the 2020 Weekender Camper Van conversion.
In conjunction with Driverge Vehicle Innovations and Peace Vans, the modifications are completed in South Carolina and begin with a Mercedes-Benz Metris passenger van. Standard models receive a pop-top addition that sleeps two, a rear bench seat that folds flat to sleep two, swiveling captains chairs, and an auxiliary battery system for powering accessories. Optional equipment available includes a solar power package, upgraded audio and video equipment, a pull-out kitchen, roof racks, and a camping package that includes an awning, bug nets, and rear tent extension. Additionally, the first 100 vans delivered will include a free National Parks Pass to help fire up customer’s camping excursions.
