1992 Ford Sportsmobile 4x2 (EB-27 Floorplan) For Sale in LA

I put this on Craigslist a few weeks ago at a pretty high asking price, which was reposted here in the CL section. I wanted to leave room to negotiate and attract serious buyers, but probably something $10.5k-$12.5k is closer to market price. I haven't posted much on this forum, but I certainly learned a lot from you all, and I'm nearly positive we'll own another Sportsmobile somewhere down the road.

Here's the ad:

The EB-27 floor plan is one of the best. Check out: http://www.sportsmobile.com/1_std-eb-plans.html

The two captains chairs are perfect for car seats and boosters if you have small kids like us. You can really strap them down, and it's much safer than attaching them to a sideways bench seat.

It carries 8 with seat belts. There's a penthouse bed, and the couch folds out into a double bed. Captains chairs and passenger seat swivel 360 degrees. Two tables inside with this cool attachment to turn them into outdoor tables. Sink/faucet with 6 gal fresh water tank. Big grey water holding tank. Thetford porta-potty (thought we'd never use it... can't live without it now on road trips). Propane stove works great. Amazing amount of storage. Comes with an AC/DC TV/DVD combo, and a Microwave that I removed for extra storage space. We've got years of service records from previous owners, too. Like many who end up buying these caravans we looked at VW Westfalia Vans, and though I've done my fair share of surfing through the GoWesty site admiring the design of the late 80s german caravans (and have friends that own them), we've been very happy with this Made in the USA, cheap to repair, venerable van, and I'm almost positive we'll end up owning another Sportsmobile some day.

THE GOOD:
- Runs great. Love driving her on the open road. Comfortable seats. I even take her into work through downtown every once and a while. Always a pleasure to drive. Good power, good brakes, good steering, good suspension. Needs nothing! 153k well maintained (tons of records).
- Brand new tires
- Brand new water pump (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002XM ... UTF8&psc=1)
- Brand new pure sine wave power inverter (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00153 ... UTF8&psc=1)
- Brand new Sears Platinum House Batter (http://www.sears.com/diehard-platinum-m ... Redirect=y)
- Propane valve replaced by http://www.yelp.com/biz/pasadena-propane-pasadena
- Replaced bulbs with power sipping LEDs throughout
- Pop Top Canvas and mesh windows are in create condition for the age and use
- Paint and band decal look amazing for the age
- AC blows cold, heater blows hot
- Air suspension
- Trailer hitch

THE NOT SO GOOD:
- The Fridge only works off of shore power (AC) so I took it out. May be an easy fix to get it to work off of DC. Haven't had the time to check it out.
- Little pebble dings have turned into cracks on the windshield.
- Cruise control is disabled.
- Overdrive doesn't work... never really new what that was...
- Radio doesn't have an aux input (bugs me... maybe you too).

THE BAD:
- Nothing! Seriously. She's ready for a cross country trip tomorrow. All the curtains, hoses, cables you need are all there are ready for the road.

I'm willing to negotiate for the right new home. No rush to sell. Open to partial or full trade for a diesel VW or Mercedes wagon. Please leave messages. Texting is fine too. 213-254-5362

How do you know the OD doesn't work if you don't know what it is?

Why is the cruise control "disabled"?

Otherwise looks in good shape for the age. Good luck!

The OD button does not depress.

I was having issues with the throttle not coming down after acceleration so I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor and disconnected the cruise control. The problem went away and never went back to work with the cruise control.

Thanks!
