I wonder if the aftermarket here in the US is going to offer any of these features, if Mercedes USA will not.Would like to get a Metris Marco Polo Activity version but could not find any info if the options will be available in the U.S. (1st row swivel seats, pop up roof, 3rd row seating bench/bed).
No shower but the rest is quite impressive, fully functioning kitchen and sleeps FOUR, wasn't expecting that. Great for the average family.
How does that work? There is a sprayer and then you have to hook it up to a source of water?Mercedes, please bring this option to the United States! I test drove a Marco Polo with the big Diesel engine in Germany and was thrilled. Yes, 4x4 version, please. I'll sign the order today.
About shower: There is an outdoor shower option built into the rear door - good enough for me.
Holy cow! That's a huge undertaking and I wish you the best. Please post update pictures as I really want to see your progress on both the Sprinter and the Metris. Do you have blueprints yet?Thanks TCP for posting your camper ideas and resource links.
I'm looking to build stealth RVs out of both my Sprinter and a Metris and make them both convert between passenger, cargo, and self-contained RVs.
What I envision are two collapsible/removable modules separated by accordion vinyl doors; one for the living room and one for the bathroom. Yep, I'm putting a toilet, shower, sink and closet in the back of a Metris too! I don't intend on living in either van but I do want all the comforts of home whether we're camping or just stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic .
I'll be sure to share my DIY successes and failures on here (and the Sprinter forum) as I go. Wish me luck
