Although the camper fever usually has medium or large vans as protagonists, small ones are also present. And the last chapter is written by the new Mercedes-Benz Clase Twhich already has its version Marco Polo.
It has been presented at the Düsseldorf Caravan Show 2022, which opened its doors last Friday and is being held throughout this week.
And it won’t take long to hit the market. Orders to take over the services of this little sister of the Mercedes-Benz V-Class Marco Polo will open at the end of the year.
Modular kitchen with drawers and a bed for two
The star’s compact minivan becomes camper modular in this variant Marco Polo. Not surprisingly, we are talking about a van from the Citroën Berlingo and company segment, which is 4.5 m long by 1.86 m wide and 1.83 m high.
As in the Berlingo and Rifter camper, the interior becomes a living room or a bedroom, but not simultaneously. And it is designed for two occupants to spend the night inside.
In this Mercedes-Benz T-Class Marco Polo the rear seats are folded down and on them a bed 1.15 m wide and 2.0 m long, being able to accommodate up to two adults. That is, this bed extends from the first row of seats to the rear.
This extendable bed has a base with a disc spring system, on which a 10 cm thick viscoelastic mattress sits. When folded, this structure is hidden in the trunk.
For the rest of the day, the interior doubles as a living room with the two rear seats and a also modular pull-out table, which is located behind the back of the front seats. This sits on a single foot and is anchored to the mooring rings on the floor, as is also the case with the bed frame.
The advantage of this table is that it is not fixed, so you can also choose to take it outside. For this, more legs can be added and it is accompanied by two auxiliary camping chairs.
Optionally, you can add a kitchen cabinetalthough it is not fixed on the side as it happens in medium-sized campers: from the rear area it unfolds in the form of three large drawers, under the bed.
The first hosts a small sink connected to a 15 liter water tank, while the second one has a portable gas cooker of a single fire, although quite large.
The set is completed with another third 15 liter drawer that goes refrigerated. But in these three large containers we have other smaller ones or shelves to store kitchen utensils, plates and cutlery or various foods. All are deployed with system push-to-open and they have a brake soft-close.
Also, this Class T Marco Polo It has darkened rear windows as standard and in the front windows a ventilation grill with mosquito net (which is integrated in the upper area) or pockets to store objects between the central and the rear pillar.
The Mercedes-Benz Clase T, which is already marketed in Spain, has up to four mechanical versions: the T 160 and T 180 of gasoline and diesel T 160 D y T 180 D.
The star brand has already indicated that this Marco Polo in pocket format will be available in several of these mechanics. As in the variant without a camper, the access version will be the T 160, which is equipped with a four-cylinder engine, 1.3 liters and 102 CV associated with a manual transmission.
The precio that announced departure is from 30.000 euros, although for Germany. Since the VAT on cars is higher in Spain, their price will be somewhat higher. The Class T in our market starts at 28,062 euros.
