Designed by?Westfalia-Werke, renowned for its classic ?pop-top? Volkswagen van-conversion packages, the Marco Polo relentlessly eliminates ?roughing it? from the ?camping lexicon. Based on the sleek new V-Class design, which was unveiled earlier this year and effectively replaces the Viano and Vito vans, the stylish Marco Polo sleeps four people, courtesy of a two-seat rear bench that morphs into a single or double bed in seconds, and an upper berth that nests beneath an electric-powered pop-up roof.

The Marco Polo might transform even a trip along the arduous Silk Road into a pleasure excursion, thanks to amenities such as a kitchenette with two gas burners, a sink, a 10?-gallon refrigerator, a 10-gallon fresh-water tank, a 10?-gallon waste tank, a large wardrobe and a fold-away tabletop. There?s even a swing-out, illuminated mirror.

Refined aesthetics come along for the ride, too, with porcelain-colored furniture, roof and walls that create an aura of spaciousness; a replicated yacht-decking floor; ambient LED lighting; and piano-black lacquered trim. And to sate the need for speed, chose from several turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engines that top out at 190 horsepower. Can an AMG version be far behind?

Set to debut this month at the?Caravan Salon?in D?sseldorf, Germany, the Marco Polo is nimble, too, with a turning radius of just under 39 feet, comparable to many luxury cars. Whether on the road or at home for a driveway staycation, camping just got a whole lot cushier.
