1998 Econoline Sportsmobile RB50 138k $27.5K

1998 Sportsmobile EB50 in great condition with new tires.* I have owned two years, driven few miles and replaced both deep cycle marine batteries, engine battery, new tires.* 2000W inverter, hot water heater, furnace and Starcool AC system.* Navigation system with DVD player and 19" monitor with storage case.* Bluetooth compatible radio system, also has back-up camera.* 10ft Fiamma awning.* Supplies included, chocks, patio carpet & carry bag, new Camco step stool, stakes, etc.*

Current mileage is about 138k.

Iím the fourth owner it was built by sports Mobile on the West Coast and head to Washington state owners before it was purchased by prior owner in Oklahoma. His company had a fleet of Ford vans, so while he owned it it had fleet maintenance. Itís had very little exposure to winter roads.

Since purchasing the van in March 2017 Iíve spent $5000++; new Michelin defender tires, complete tuneup all new spark plugs, replaced carbon monoxide detector, replaced accessory interior fan, new batteries etc. I expected to hold the van for 10 years or more, however Iím downsizing to a condo and wonít have any place to park the van. I have all original manuals, all service receipts, etc. It's winterized and ready for more adventures!

Contact for additional pictures and details.

Nice van, but note that it's an "EB-50," not an RB. This would work well for someone who wanted to add a third captain's seat behind the passenger seat for an extra passenger.

Very nice looking van but I think you maybe asking alittle to much for a 1998 sportsmobile. If it was a 4x4 then I guess that would be a good deal. Best of luck with the sell

Looks like a great van with a solid history and records. Looks like it would make a great 4wd conversion too.

Does it have a full float rear axle? That is important to many 4wd convert dreamers.

Oh Phish, you are too funny...already laying ground work for a deal?!? LOL...Pay no attention Wildhair! I HAVE seen this van and met its owner! Nice Gal! We talked SMB's and how she has taken it over from previous owner with all the paperwork and how she has done the same b'c she fell in love with it (typical SMB story eh?!)...IT is very clean and seems RIPE for a 4x4 conversion! I seem to remember that funky gold with a stripe...Awning, clean interior...West SMB top...that is all I can remember...maybe I have a pic...anyway, great deal (or close to) for a person wanting to join the SMB party...and note, I think it would be much more if it was already a 4x4...good luck WIldhair! I am sure it will go FAST!!!!!

Ps WH What about the axel question?

Nope just trying to help out. Seen a bunch on the market for around that price with similar miles that have been for sale for a few months. But spring is on the horizon and Iím sure more people will start looking.
