One of the biggest surprises in the BOTB office is the popularity of the camper vans - and the Mercedes Marco Polo is a hot favourite!
The Marco Polo is certainly a more upmarket offering than the VW Camper. It’s based on their V-Class MPV and straight away offers a huge amount of space inside thanks to the long wheelbase and higher roofline. There’s a wooden floor inside, while the drivers and passenger seats turn around 180 degrees so you can sit at the fold-out table. There’s a fridge, cooker hob and sink to one side, and the roof raises to provide a bed for two, to complement the double bed formed by lying all the seats down together.
For 2020 there’s a more powerful 236bhp diesel engine so you get much better performance and the interior is pure Mercedes, so you get a high quality, stylish dashboard full of the latest tech and infotainment.
This is the perfect vehicle for a weekend getaway and you could win this camper in the BOTB competition!
