Mercedes Benz USA has announced the Metris Weekender pop-top campervan will be available through MBUSA Commercial dealers beginning in March.
The Weekender features a fold-down rear seat/bed for two, swiveling front seats, a pop-top roof tent for two, and a second battery for lighting and USB chargers. Optional features include solar panels, awning, custom graphic exterior wraps, and a slide out kitchen unit in back.
Peace Vans in Seattle Washington designed the Weekender and still sells it as an aftermarket conversion, along with a more complete Metris Campervan conversion that includes stove, fridge and sink. Driverge Vehicle Innovations will do the actual production conversion work at their South Carolina facility that already performs mobility and transport conversions on Sprinter and Metris vans.
No announcement has been made whether the full Campervan conversion might become available through Mercedes dealers. If Weekender sales are successful perhaps that will follow.
