The recently introduced X-Class from Mercedes-Benz has proved to be quite popular for the outdoor kind. To make it more interesting Mercedes-Benz has introduced a range of options to make it more adventure friendly. At the 2018 Caravan Motor Touristik show starting January 13 in Stuttgart, Germany, the luxury brand will debut two X-Class camping concepts, the X-Class Tischer body and VanEssa built-in kitchen.
The Tischer X-Class concept places a traditional camper body on the bed of the pickup. Despite its small size, the camper body boasts a 60-inch wide alcove for sleeping with nearly 6.5 feet of headroom above the occupant. The camper also includes a 3-burner stove, seating for three, a foldaway bathroom, and a place to shower. Campers can also turn the seating arrangement into a second bed. With the Tischer camper body concept, Mercedes-Benz believes the X-Class can offer everything camping aficionados seek when gearing up to take on the outdoor lifestyle.
The other option is the VanEssa built-in kitchen concept. It does not include sleeping quarters, a bathroom, or any other creature comforts. Instead, it's a full-fledged kitchen stowed neatly in the X-Class' bed. The 250kg unit includes a coolbox, space for cooking and washing, and storage areas to keep pots and utensils. VanEssa built the sleek unit with pneumatic struts that allow the cover to be propped up at an angle of 45 degrees for ease of use. And it looks mighty luxurious, too; yacht-style teak wood provides durability and it's water resistant. Whether you want to go camping under the stars or just cook up a storm, the X-Class will be availabe for both.
