The Vito is a minivan produced by Mercedes-Benz and was available as a standard panel van for cargo called Vito, or with passenger accommodations substituted for part or all of the load area called V-Class or Viano. The first generation went on sale in 1996 and the second generation was introduced in 2004. Available in both rear and four-wheel drive configurations and three lengths, two wheelbases and a choice of four petrol and diesel engines (as well as two specialist tuned models) coupled to either a six-speed manual or five-speed TouchShift automatic transmission.
Originally registered in July of 2004 and with just five former keepers, this very presentable example is finished in silver with complementary grey trim and a five-speed TouchShift automatic gearbox. Originally a Vito long wheelbase van, it was professionally converted by the previous owner to be the ideal day tripper. The original manuals for the conversion are in the history file and are complemented by various Mercedes-Benz invoices and MoT test certificates, the most recent valid until October 2023. A full kitchen unit with twin cooker hob and gas bottle, a fridge, a sink with running water and waste, LED down lights and mains plugs with a mains hook-up, a rock and roll bed, ample storage, solar panels which can provide power when the batteries not in use and a tow bar make this a very practical yet understated camper. The air conditioning condenser has been changed and re-gassed, a recent service has been performed for which the invoice can be found within the history file and with two keys all add to what is a very attractive proposition for weekends away or days at the seaside. Viewing is highly recommended for this camper which is offered to auction without reserve.
