3 Reasons To Convert A Mercedes Metris Van

3 Reasons To Convert A Mercedes Metris Van

The Best Metris Camper Van

We may be a little biased, but the feedback we’ve received from renters and buyers is that ADF Anacapa is the most ideal Mercedes Metris camper currently out there. The features we chose and the layout we designed is what makes the Anacapa the versatile mid-sized camper it is today. If you’re on the fence about getting a smaller camper van, here are a couple of things to consider when choosing a model to convert.

#1 – It’s the perfect size

It’s not how big the house is, it’s how happy the home is. Not everyone wants to live the full-time van life and needs an oversized adventure van which holds huge amounts of gear. There are more people who are searching for a dual-purpose vehicle (truck, SUV, or van) that adapts to their current lifestyle than a van conversion which gets seldom use. That being said, if you’re looking for the ultimate mid-sized van for a camper van conversion, then the ADF Anacapa is right for you.

  • Length: 202’
  • Height: 75’
  • Wheelbase: 126’

Van Life with a Mercedes Metris

The main rationale in getting a high roof sprinter van to travel in is space; That space is mostly utilized when you’re not driving or exploring the outdoors. That being said, if your plans are to be outside more than inside a van then your priorities should be in finding a vehicle that’s more adaptable to your life. For instance, the Metris is easier to handle as a daily driver can switch from a passenger hauler to a camper van smoothly, and fits in any garage. With the Mercedes Benz Metris conversion, you’ll be saving time and money on packing, washing, and maintenance of the smaller vehicle compared to a Sprinter.

#2 – You won’t break the bank

Typically, the bigger the van the bigger the budget and if you’re looking for a part-time camper, you’ll want to be mindful of your base model spend. The 2020 Mercedes Benz Metris starts at $35,580 and when compared to similar models it outperforms in safety, features, and drivability. The 2019 Metris passenger van is $12k less than the NEW 2019 Sprinter so those savings could go towards the conversion.
