2006 RB31 Sportsmobile 4x4. 61k miles

I'm a little hesitant to do this, but here goes...

2006 Sportsmobile, 4x4 Ford E350, 60,000 miles, RB, 5.4 gas V8. 4x4 system is from MG Metalworks/Ujoint Off-Road and has massive 14.29” brakes, Dynatrac hubs that replace troublesome unit bearings with serviceable ones, as well as Dynatrac rebuildable ball joints. This is the ‘RB31’ layout with penthouse/bed up top, long gaucho couch/bed below, sink, refrigerator, Espar D2 heater, 20 gallon freshwater, 12 gallon greywater, two 200 amp/hour AGM house batteries, two 125 watt solar panels with Blue Sky controller, Tripplite inverter, swivel seats for both driver and passenger, Aluminess front and rear bumpers with deluxe box, tire carrier, upgraded wheels and tires (4k miles) and a set of five snow tires that have about 8k miles, Bushwacker fender flares, upgraded Pioneer AVH stereo(Bluetooth, DVD, Apple Carplay and backup camera), under floor storage, smoke and CO detectors. All original Sportsmobile documentation, including build sheet.

I camped in this 2-3 nights per week all last year, including about 15 nights in at or below zero temperatures in northern Colorado. The heater keeps it warm enough to wear shorts inside. The massive battery bank, solar and water let you stay comfortably in the desert or mountains for many days at a time. Excellent shape. Other than a minor dent in the front driver’s side fender it looks close to new.

I built this for long term reliability and many days in the field but my needs have changed. Needs nothing but an adventurous owner. Asking $59,000. If you want to try before you buy, rent it on Outdoorsy (https://www.outdoorsy.co/rv-rental/s..._12006-listing) and I’ll apply your whole rental cost to the van if you buy it.

Love it. Nice build up of the 4x4. I remember those sub zero days this winter. We were camping on Rabbit Ears at that the time.

Great selection of reading material. If I were still looking, I would hit on this one for sure. GLWS - shouldn't take very long.
