Stuttgart, 23 August 2016

Marco Polo: With this name not only historians know to start something. Also among camping friends, the famous traveler is a term, since Mercedes denotes its in-house mobile homes so. In the context of the caravan, the Swabians in addition to special models of the Marco Polo also tags for the Citan and the sprinter show salon in Düsseldorf (27 August to 4th September 2016).

Two special Marco Polo

The Marco Polo models based on the V class we devote ourselves first. This brings Mercedes two special versions on the market: the "activity"Edition is available in Düsseldorf trailer with Motocross motorcycle, to point out to the audience. The bike not standard, is painted parts, 17-inch alloy wheels, color glazing in the rear and a 14.7-centimetre touch screen along with Navi but in body colour. 44.625 euros on board is also a hot air heater. That is significantly more expensive "Edition"-model, it starts at 59,500 euros. There's also a sport package for the body, an automatic transmission and a multimedia system for the 17-inch.

An AMG GT to stay

Quasi the bird shoots the AMG line of Marco Polo: athletic-inspired caravan pilots get here a front apron with large air intakes, 19-inch AMG wheels, a rear diffuser optics and a spent around 15 millimeters lower Sport suspension. Inside, carbon fibre trim elements provide GT feelings.

Hymer is the sprinter to the apartment

The "Grand Canyon S', the Hymer builds on the basis of the Mercedes Sprinter is clearly factual. Advantage: The sprinter has a side wind Wizard from the factory. This provides more security, finally a transverse bed of the format's 195 140 centimeters, a kitchenette and a fully-equipped bathroom in Hymer building. A new Sprinter variant with gross vehicle weight of 5.5 tonnes provides even more possibilities. Depending on the used body basis, a payload of up to 3.46 tons is possible.

Sporty Vito conversion and clever Citan

In the area of Compact motorhome, Mercedes shows the "Vansportscamper" with sporty accessories by Hartmann and a build-up of Terracamper. The Vito, whose drive offer ranges from 88 Horsepower with front-wheel drive up to 190 HP with all-wheel drive is based here. Citan with roof tent is a particularly smart idea for those who want maximum for two travel, but carry no huge motorhome. The mobile apartments called "TopDog" and comes from the company 3DOG. Stowed on the vehicle, the height of the retractable roof tent is only 25 to 30 centimeters. Rebuilt, it offers even a living tent complete with integrated floor. (rh)
