2003 4x4 7.3L Diesel Sportsmobile - $49900

We're expecting a baby and have sadly decided to part with the van as there is no good way to install a baby seat on the sideways couch...

Engine and drivetrain:
- Ford E350 7.3 Liter Powerstroke Diesel V8 (the last year they produced the 7.3L engine)
- Sportsmobile 4wd / 4x4 conversion
- Atlas transfer case with individual shifter for front/rear drive
- 140k miles
- Emergency start switch (enables starting the vehicle from the house battery)
- Oversize fuel tank (40 gal, I think)

Exterior
- Aluminess front/rear bumpers
- 12k lb winch in front bumper with wired remote control
- Solar panel on roof. I usually get around 60W on a sunny day
- Movable Yakima roof rack
- Thule ski/snowboard rack
- Towing enabled with control module by captains seat (not exactly sure what it does as I've never used it)
- Gray water tank under body (has a leak)
- Two full size spares (on rear swing arm, and under body)
- PIAA & bumper front & rear lights
- TV & CB antenna
- Ladder on both sides
- Barn door light
- Under body propane tank

Interior
- Roughly EB49 Sportsmobile floor plan
- Sleeps 4
- Seats 5
- Sportsmobile electric pop-top. Canvas in great condition.
- 16.5 gallon water tank & water pump. No water heater.
- Propane furnace / heater
- Vitifrigo fridge with freezer compartment. Previous owner said it was much better than the standard Norcold fridge that apparently didn't have a very cold freezer. The solar panel generates more than enough power for the fridge on a hot sunny day.
- Microwave
- Insulated walls for winter camping
- Lots of storage in back
- Xantrex Truesine 2.0 2000W inverter (Has been acting up recently - may need to be replaced. ~$600 on Ebay)
- CB Radio
- Swivel captains chairs with adjustable lumbar support.
- Original floor plan had back space set up for a porta potty that easily could be added back.
- 1 year old Lifeline AGM house battery (the high end recommended battery).
- 2 Red Optima starter batteries. Less than 6 months old (the best starter battery on the market, I think).
- Bluetooth stereo with handsfree phone setup.
- Privacy curtains

Very nice. Similar floor plan to mine. Should sell quick.

Anybody in the Bay area that could swing by and look at this one? Sounds good and looks good but worried about the 140k on the rest of the van parts.

Give Rallypanam a shout. He has offered to help me as well as other members out with things like that and lives in the bay area. Of course he's out and about a lot so he might not be home currently.

It's a little too far for me. It's parked about 100 feet from my house right now.. gzzd is a neighbor.

IMO you are making a mistake. In some ways that van is as good as it gets.

My kids love to camp and road trip. Store it if you don't need it this year.

Why not keep it and put a rear captains chair behind your front passenger seat?
