Mercedes-Benz has unveiled camper van concepts based on its new X-Class pick-up.
The concepts are a demountable cabin from bodybuilder Tischer and a conversion concept with integrated kitchen system by VanEssa Mobilcamping.
The concepts will be on show at the upcoming Caravan, Motor, Touristik show in Germany, along with the Marco Polo family of vehicles, including the Marco Polo travel van and the recreational Marco Polo Activity and Marco Polo Horizon.
The Tischer demountable cabin offers sleeping accommodation along with a kitchen which can be converted into a second bed, an integrated bathroom with enough space to take a shower, a fold-away wash basin and a swivelling toilet unit.
The VanEssa module offers a kitchen with cool box, cooking and washing-up facilities, storage space for crockery and supplies, and a second pull-out module for further storage.
Volker Mornhinweg, head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, said: “It is important to us that our vehicles appeal to camper van bodybuilders as well, of course, to end customers. The X-Class fits seamlessly into our established product range.
“We are proud to introduce first camper van solution approaches together with Tischer and VanEssa at the CMT, just two months after the vehicle's launch.
"We are also continuing to develop our own travel vans and recreational vehicles – with positive customer feedback.
“Our newest arrival in particular, the Marco Polo Horizon, is proving very popular and has played a decisive role in the growth of the Marco Polo family."
The X-Class, Mercedes’ first pick-up, which is based on the Nissan Navara, launched this month.
