Mercedes-Benz has revealed its new pop up camper van for the U.S. market.

Harkening back to the glory days of camper vans, Mercedes-Benz drew inspiration from illustrious models of the past while integrating the latest safety, reliability and convenience features to create a new modern pop top van.

The new camper vans are built by Driverge Vehicle Innovations, who are part of the MASTERSOLUTIONS program, in partnership with Peace Vans, one of the largest classic camper van repair and restoration shops in the United States.
