Meridian introduces Caleche convertible glass top Sprinter

Posted on March 17, 2015

Meridian Specialty Vehicles, a Mercedes-Benz Preferred Upfitter and bus manufacturer in Las Vegas, and Caleche B.V of The Netherlands, announced an exclusive distribution agreement of Caleche's retractable glass-top convertible roof system designed specifically for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

The roof system, which replaces the factory upper walls and roof converts a bus into a mobile panoramic touring machine like no other. The glass roof system replaces the factory structure, opens and retracts with the touch of a button and incorporates several safety features to prevent injury or damage to the system.

The patented glass top convertible roof system will be installed by Meridian from knock-down kits shipped from The Netherlands and available in North America on the 144-inch wheelbase 2500 model Sprinter and the 170-inch extended wheelbase 3500 model Sprinter in eight to 20 passenger configurations and with multiple entry door options. Heavy-duty air conditioning systems, auxiliary heating systems and a unique inflatable air seal system ensure passengers will stay dry and comfortable year-round and in any climate.

The first North American glass top Sprinters have already completed all necessary safety testing and will be available for sale in coming months through Meridian's bus dealer network.
