MAKE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE WITH MATEO
Hit the road in this custom Mercedes Benz Sprinter van built by the famous Sportsmobile. This van is perfect for taking the family on that unplugged getaway you’ve been dreaming about. Unlike an RV with only two seats up front and a living space, this van is set up to seat eight people safely and comfortably: two in the front, two in captains chairs in the middle, and four on the rear bench. All are set up with seatbelts and is optimal for driving in comfort.
The rear has its own AC and heating to ensure the entire cabin is comfortable. The rear bench folds down into a massive king sized bed. The roof pops up to a ‘penthouse,’ with its own queen sized bed. Typically we sleep two adults with room to spare on the bottom and a couple kids up top. Or two adults up top and 3 to 4 kids on the large bed below. The low roof makes for easier access and better fuel economy.
Gather around to trade stories of the day. The front seats swivel around to face the captains chairs which also swivel allowing for a comfortable eating area in the center of the van. A wall mountain table pops up for easy access. And bug screens velcro on the doors so you can keep the van open and bug free! There’s also an awning that rolls out to keep the shade going for the sunny days. The van includes a backup camera for safe backing and a flip down screen to watch movies on the go.
Mateo is a breeze to drive, and has the upgraded HID headlights for optimal clarity and visibility at night.
Pick up this van in San Mateo, about 15 minutes south of San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
