Marco Polo is a real explorer! He has the tendency to take our guests to the longest routes, sometimes even a month long! In that case, he never skips his former home, Lofoten. Marco was built by Vlado, founder of Benzini Campers in the harsh conditions of arctic winter above the polar circle as the first campervan. He is the beginning of the now much-loved campervan rental.
Like all our campervans, Marco’s home is now in Sandefjord town, 15 minutes from Torp Airport and 1,5 hours from Oslo. Those three locations are where we personally deliver the campervans to you. Both Sandefjord and Oslo are great starting points to embark on an unforgettable road trip in Norway.
This campervan is a custom-made one, ready for any weather conditions. The camping part of the car is very well insulated and covered with oak wood. Because in Norway you never know if July will be 25 or 5 degrees, warm air made by a powerful parking heater is only a button away. Too hot? Open the roof window, lay in the bed and stargaze.
Marco’s bed is a foldable one, very easy to set up. Sleeping bags follow in the campervan, together with pillows, sheets and bedding. While the bed is not in use, it works as a U-shaped sofa, with the possibility to put a table in the middle.
Since Marco Polo is a super compact campervan, its kitchen is an outdoor one. Both the gas stove and a compressor fridge are drawers pulled out from the back. The gas stove comes with several gas cartridges (230g), depending on the length of your trip. Do you worry about bad weather and cooking options? The gas stove is portable and you can take it anywhere where it’s hidden from the rain. The kitchen is equipped with all utensils you might need for camping cooking. There is no tap running water, yet you can do your dishes in a foldable sink. The freshwater tank is 12 l big.
All electric devices such as a fridge, lights, USB outlets and a diesel heater are powered by a leisure battery that charges while driving. You can charge your devices by plugging them into USB ports or you can add a voltage converter to your campervan rental and charge at 220 V while driving.
For the ultimate comfort during the driving part of your journey, Marco has 2 comfy seats, storage compartments in the cab, plenty of CDs to play, an AUX inlet with an AUX cable and just as in all of our campervans a phone holder. It is a manual transmission vehicle and runs on diesel. Its 60-litre tank will hold for a while since its fuel consumption is only 6l/100km!
