2006 Sportsmobile 2500 Sprinter

2006 Sportsmobile 2500 Sprinter
Price: $47,000
Clean Title. VIN: WDOPD744465964791
High Roof and Extended Body with 158 Wheel Base. Approximately 21 long
The Sprinter is for sale by Joseph, on Flickr
We have enjoyed our 3 Year Road Trip around North American with the Sprinter, which we purchased in 2014 from Sportsmobile Texas where it was on consignment. The Sprinter will be on the Olympic Peninsula in Port Townsend, WA at the end of February. We are currently in Joshua Tree and plan on heading north on the west side of the mountains toward the end of January. We would consider showing the van as we travel.

Sportsmobile Texas built the van in 2007. It was used sparingly over the next 7 years ending with just 13,500 miles in December 2014, when we picked it up in Austin. They had completed some modifications after our purchase, including 200 watts of solar and inverter, diesel heater and re-configuring the couch to a partial platform bed for additional storage.

The van does not have house propane. Ive used a Snow Peak Baja Burner exclusively as it allows us to cook inside or out without duplicating cooking devices. The solar panels power everything adequately, including the microwave.

Its a great vehicle for living in for a weekend or a a few years.

We are selling because we plan to be out of the country for a while, and dont want to have to store the van while we are gone. And besides, it needs to be used, not sitting in a Geezer lot.

Miles: Currently 70,300 but will probably end up with a little over 73,000 when sold.

22-25 MPG depending on speed and terrain

Hello,
I didn't come across any images of the front half of the vehicle interior. Are there any captains chairs? Also wondering if there is any secondary sleeping option for a child in this vehicle?
Thank you!

The seats are original with arm rests. The passenger seat does swing around and face the rear of the van. There should be a few pictures of someone sitting in the seat in that manner in the album.

Sportsmobile does offer a platform that rests on the front seats and is used as a bed for a child. I've not seen one aside from photographs on their website.

We are in the desert with 3G and I can't get into the photo stream on flickr. I'll post a picture of the seats when we are in wifi

I have no affiliation with the seller, just putting in a good word of personal experience. I drove one of these for work for about 100,000 miles. It was absolutely trouble free and only needed headlight bulb replacements while I had it. It was one of the nicest driving and riding vehicles I've ever driven. These are a gem compared to the newer Sprinters that need so much attention and maintenance. To find one with this few miles is even better. If I could find a Sprinter van of this year and mileage I could afford I would buy it tomorrow.

Good luck with sale!
