Mercedes 508D

It's my fault for not looking at the badge on this rig. It had European plates and the owners were obviously taking a "little" trip. I've seen these before, but this one really stood out with it's school bus yellow paint. In typical European fashion, it's a diesel.


  1. Just looking over your site, I love it! I think I can help with this one. It looks like a Mercedes 508d.

  2. Hi,
    indeed a nice rig. - Because it is ours :-). I just found this picture by accident on this webpage.
    We love it. It is a Mercedes 508D, diesel, 85 HP, 3.6 liters, direct injection, from 1985.
    Where was this picture take? in Anza-Borrego?

  3. I would love to know what roof rack they have as I need something similar for my 508d :)
