The summer may be drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean your exploring has to.

Mercedes just released four campers (three upgrades and one new van), and they’re full of all the creature comforts that’ll make your next trip to the woods feel a little more like home.

Citan Tower, aka the new guy
Technically not a camper, the Citan is a van with a rooftent. However, that rooftent is designed by TopDog, whose rigs only take a couple of minutes to assemble, come with an enclosed area for protection from the elements and sport a Tempurpedic mattress.

Vito Tourer, aka the sporty one
A sleeker option, Mercedes partnered with body-specialists TerraCamper and Hartmann Tuning for a more compact, agile design. All-wheel drive with a six-speed automatic transmission, and it has a rear pop-up roof.

Hymercar Grand Canyon, aka the proper camper
Not only does the Hymer Grand Canyon have a wider wheel base so you can go farther out in the sticks, it also equips a built-in bathroom and gas range so you can stay awhile.

Marco Polo: aka, the swanky adrenaline junkie
The Marco Polo is Mercedes’ top-of-the-line camper. It's ready to tackle any and all terrain you throw at it, but still has all of the bells and whistles you'd expect of their luxury sedans (advanced audio, plush interiors, the works).
