Introducing the MetriVan
The road calls. So we’re calling all adventure seekers, go-getters and everyday travelers to support our project that redefines the conventional RV.
The MetriVan transforms durable Mercedes-Benz Metris Vans into affordable, versatile campers, complete with a pop-top sleeper roof and removable seats.
Whether you’re tailgating for your favorite team’s game, road-tripping with your family, or hauling your paddle boards, kayaks and bicycles for your scenic escape with nature, MetriVan paves the road for endless possibilities. The vehicle doubles as a safe, spacious and utilitarian van that you can park in your garage during the work and school week.
We just completed two prototypes of the MetriVan. We need funding to retrofit more vans so we can launch a rental fleet available to the community. We want to ensure that renters get their desired date and duration with the MetriVan, at a fair and affordable price.
Why Travel With a MetriVan?
Travel has never been easier! No need for tents, hotels, hammocks, or sleeping in your car chairs; The MetriVan has a pop-top sleeper roof and convertible bench seat to comfortably sleep four.
The MetriVan has 2 spaces for sleeping that can fit up to 4 adults. The pop top feature allows for over 6 feet of sleeping space in the top of the van. Also, the rear bench seat converts into a padded bed. Mattresses are included. All you’ll need is a blanket and pillows!
The MetriVan is equipped with a kitchenette. This includes a 2 burner stove with extra propane, built-in cutting board, powered refrigerator top loaded, two water storage jugs, water pump and faucet, silicone easy-clean sink, storage for other utensils, and more!
The MetriVan allows you to drive further than a typical RV can go. The chassis is narrower and shorter than a full-size RV, so you can easily maneuver through narrow roads, under low clearance, climb steep hills and traverse winding roads to get where you need to be.
The MetriVan is nearly the same size as a normal mini-van, making it the perfect size for everyday life. This is not just a weekend luxury. We specifically designed this van to be useful in everyday life.

Wandering About the Features?
The MetriVan is build on a truck frame. This allows the towing capacity to outdo any other van in its class. With the MetriVan, you can tow up to 5,000 lbs!
When not in use, the floor of the MetriVan Pop Top sleeper can be lifted, allowing for much higher standing room during the day. Standing room goes from 4.6 feet to 6.5 feet!
The MetriVan comes with all the safety features found in the quality Mercedes-Benz Metris chassis. This includes Airbags, Crosswind Assist, Load-Adaptive Electronic Stability Program (ESP®), Attention Assist®, Rescue Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Collision Prevention Assist, and Blind Spot Assist.
The MetriVan uses the convenience and safety of the Mercedes Benz Metris chassis as the base. We will be adding new highly functional features including new captain seats, a new Smart Floor, a Nest camper system, and most noticeably the pop top roof. All of our upgrades are certified crash tested, and in no way affect the top-notch safety of the vehicle. You will feel safe driving your family on a long adventure in the MetriVan.

Why We Need Your Help
Right now, we’ve already built 2 prototypes of the MetriVan. We need to retrofit more vans in order to build a full rental fleet available to the community. There is demand for an affordable and versatile RV, but we need your help to ensure that renters can access the MetriVan at a fair price and desired date and duration.
Raising $75k will allow us to retrofit a full set of rental MetriVans (minimum of 3) available for as little as $200 / night. We’re giving all backers the opportunity to pre-book rentals and save hundreds on the expected rental rate. We're also giving backers an ability to personally work with our team to customize their very own MetriVan, and be among the first to own this versatile vehicle.

Risks and challenges
We’re extremely proud of our project and have the strongest belief in its ability to be successful. But we’re just at the beginning. The journey may be a challenge, but we dream of making travel into an affordable and accessible lifestyle for everyone. With a goal as big as ours, risks and challenges are inevitable. If this campaign reaches the level of success we know it’s capable of, we face the potential risk of being limited by resources and manpower. While this is a risk, our vast experience in the RV industry paired with our group of dedicated individuals and skilled engineers gives us the confidence to solve any problem we may encounter. We’ve been lucky to work with a highly motivated and passionate team that has helped bring MetriVan to life. We are deeply committed to producing a rental set of MetriVans by Spring of 2018. You can be confident that as a MetriVan supporter, you are our top priority.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
