Natural stone onboard Mercedes-Benz‘ luxury-motorhome

Why, dear readers, are we showing the Mercedes-Bens „Zetros“ motorhome? Could the vehicle equipped with a 326 hp engine be suitable for transporting or working natural stone?

Of course not. Natural stone is part of the interior cladding. The walls of the shower cabin, the counter-top surface and the table are all made of 8 mm-thick natural stone in the model shown here. Hünerkopf Company of Germany is a specialist for exclusive automobile interiors. Usually 3 mm-thick natural stone or thinner is used. But with a total mass of 18 t, the material used here could be somewhat thicker.

The original shown on our photo was shipped to Mongolia and is being driven there.
The fact that natural stone can be used at all is a result of a special construction: the „living quarters“, which truly deserve the name, are completely separated from the chassis due to an intricate feat of engineering.

A specialist for such constructions is Hartmann Company of Germany.

The dual ax kid brother of the Zetros model shown here, has already been furbished with natural stone by Hünerkopf Company: The model on the photo here comes with a natural stone frame around the counter top.
