Mercedes-Benz Weekender Versatile Pop-Up Camper Ready for Adventure, Travel, or Work

by Bill P.

Mercedes-Benz recently dropped a modern pop-up camper van on sale in the U.S. this spring. The Mercedes-Benz Weekender seats five and sleeps four with a cool new sleeping area attached to the roof and a second row that opens into a bed for two.

The new Weekender camper van is built by Driverge Vehicle Innovations, part of the MASTERSOLUTIONS™ program, in partnership with Peace Vans.

The versatile Weekender is ideal for a travel off the beaten path with an available awning and bug net for the rear. And because the Metris van is configured as daily driving van, one can park it easily and pop the cover for tailgating and picnics. The Weekender is also ideal for adventurous lunches and impromptu work outings.

Glamping is on another level with an elevated roof with a sleeping area for two that includes an integrated spring system, 2-inch memory foam mattress, three windows, and added USB ports for lights, charging and more. A multipurpose rear bench seat opens up into a bed for two and moves along a rail position into four locations, allowing additional room for cargo.

Swiveling front seats rotate 180 degrees to turn the spacious cabin into the perfect multipurpose lounge. Whether doing work after getting off the trail, sharing a meal or playing cards– the reconfigured space with seats fully swiveled adds a whole new dimension to the experience.

With its superior performance, safety and reliability, the best-in-class Mercedes-Benz Metris provides an ideal platform to create the Weekender. For example, the Metris offers sophisticated safety features, exemplary fuel economy, up to 15,000 mile service intervals and a tow rating of 5,000 pounds. Standard feature highlights for the Metris include Attention Assist®, rearview camera and ECO start/stop.

Standard Crosswind Assist helps stabilize the van and boosts safety in strong, gusting crosswinds, while the dynamic handling system load adaptive ESP actively intervenes to help keep the van firmly under control and safe by automatically braking individual wheels and reducing engine power to help stabilize the vehicle if wheel spin, understeer or oversteer is detected.
