For those taking short summer breaks with their family in the car, Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH offers a number high quality supplies and accessories to make the short vacation even more enjoyable. Before the vacation begins, things must be packed. The noble travel bag from Mercedes-Benz, the Weekender Classic, is an excellent product to start this task for the journey. The Weekender comes in classic brown and is enhanced by an elegant material mix of cowhide and cotton/viscose.
The original seat covers of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class from the 1980s inspire the interior design of the Weekender. In addition to a large main compartment, the bag (approx. 50 x 28 x 28 cm) is equipped with an additional zipper compartment, which can accommodate smaller travel items. Two carrying handles as well as a detachable shoulder strap ensure comfortable wearing comfort.
For those who prefer to pack a suitcase, the carry-on luggage sized Upright 55 X’Blade is well suited. The black design and a 3-D Mercedes-Benz star make this case, manufactured by Samsonite for Mercedes-Benz, a perfect short trip travel partner. The case has a large main compartment with cross-belt straps, a separate compartment with crossbars in the lid, a small wet compartment and two outer compartments with zipper. The spacious and functional interior has a volume of 44 liters. In addition, the suitcase is equipped with clothes bag, shoe and laundry bag. The Upright 55 X’Blade is 2.5 kg light, approx. 40 x 55 x 20 cm in size and has two stable wheels.

With various accessories from the Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH, the trip for those in the rear becomes more of an experience. These products include the Style & Travel Equipment holder for popular tablet models from Apple and Samsung. The holder can be positioned horizontally or vertically, since it is 360° rotatable. It can also be tipped vertically for optimum positioning for users of different body sizes. The holder is simply inserted into the universal Base Attachment of the Style & Travel Equipment to the headrest brackets of the car seat. The tablet carrier can only be used in conjunction with a Mercedes-Benz protective cover that is available separately for the most popular tablets.
The travel experiences can be captured with an ActionCam. A corresponding holder can also be attached to the base attachment on the headrest brackets. The holder is compatible with common action cameras, such as GoPro or Rollei. While mounted on the holder, the ActionCam can be tilted and turned around 360°. The relevant valid data protection regulations must be observed when filming. For safety reasons, it is recommended not to occupy the back seat where the ActionCam holder is attached while the car is in motion.
Bicycles can be easily transported with the Rear-mounted Bicycle Carrier from Mercedes-Benz Accessories. The carrier was specially developed for Mercedes-Benz vehicles and can be attached to the trailer without additional tools. It can accommodate two or, respectively, three bicycles and is suitable for e-bikes with a total payload of 60 and 54 kg, respectively. The carrier has been tested beyond the legal requirements and thus offers a particularly high safety standard. The holding brackets have a quick-release fastener. If the carrier is not needed, it can be folded together in a space-saving manner and tucked in the available storage bag.
