When you hear the name “Mercedes-Benz” what are the first words that pop into your head? Luxury? Sport? High-class? How about “camper van”? Probably not, right? But it is time for you to think again because Mercedes-Benz recently unveiled their brand new camper van model. They call it the…Weekender. 

Driverge Vehicle Innovations in South Carolina will be constructing the Weekender. They are the commercial van manufacturer that constructs vans like the Ford Transit and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. 

The Mercedes Weekender | Mechanic | Midtown Auto Repair | Sacramento is marketed towards a wide group of people including adventure-seeking millennials and hip retirees. Built on the body of the Metris, the Weekender will come with a pop-up roof and will be able to sleep four people and seat five. It is designed to have multiple uses including road trips across the country, family vacations, a workspace, or simply a place to relax. The pop-up roof will be able to sleep two people on a two-inch foam mattress with springs. It will have three windows along with a USB port that can be used for charging. The rear bench will unfold into a bed for two and when the bench is in its upright position, the seats can move along a rail that allows the seats to be moved into four different positions. The two front seats can swivel 180 degrees, turning the entire van into a multipurpose lounge-like area. 

The Weekender will come with privacy curtains that cover the windshield, a second battery so you can charge any device, off-grid power and solar panel capabilities, and state of the art sound and navigation abilities. Optional upgrades include an eight-inch exterior awning, a pullout kitchen in the rear, and a tent that can connect the rear liftgate. 

This 202.4 inch long, 88.3 inch wide, 74.4 inch tall van is the next big thing for Mercedes-Benz. If the features are not compelling enough, the first 100 customers will receive a National Park Pass along with the camper! If you are looking for the best camper deal in the market, it does not get much better than this.
