97 Ford E350 SMB 4x4 EB for sale

1997 Ford E350 Sportsmobile 4x4, Extended Body, Voyager top
95,000 miles Located in Corpus Christi Texas

My husband died about 5-6 years ago and I am now ready to sell the Sportsmobile. We had a lot of fun with it. Towed a Wells cargo trailer with our dirt bikes in Utah and west Texas. I have purchased a Class C RV which is roomier for me and my pets to travel in so I don't need this van even though I really like it, i should sell it and let someone else play with it.
I am new to posting on a forum. Hope the photos get posted properly.

Complete maintenance records

Recent Maintenance:
New Tires, New Isolator, Chasis batteries in April 2016
New RV batteries in May 2016
Replaced Rear Differential and Wheel cylinders March 2017
Regular fluid changes etc. I have complete maintenance records.
All door latches have been replaced.

What's wrong with it:
- Odometer stopped at 77000. Mileage tracked using GPS. I have complete records documenting milage/fuel stops. I did some research on repair. Looks like it is a broken worm gear. I bought the part ($30) but don't have the confidence to remove the odometer myself.
- Glove box door latch in the Dog House broke. Have not been able to find a replacement part.
- Right rear wheel fender missing.

Robin, I'm very sorry about your husband's passing. Glad to hear of your continued travels with your pets.

I'm no expert, but this seems like a steal. if I had the cash, I'd snap it up in a heartbeat. Best of luck to you!

Thank you for your kind comments.
I am not sure if I have the correct price. But the guys at the Ford dealer where I get the work done cautioned me not to give it away. They all admired it.
It runs great and has been garaged its whole life. Based on prices of other SMBs i see I think the price is right. I'm not interested in getting a steal, just want someone to enjoy it and take care of it.
I can always lower the price if it doesn't sell, but if I'm too low, well then someone gets a good deal.

Cool! I like how the kitchen and dining/sleeping area are separated.

That 1997 is all original Sportsmobile. Still has the automatic locking hubs! Those dog house organizers are impossible to replace once they break. There just isn't any around anymore.

I'm sure this will sell today. You should accept offers over $20k as you will get that easily.
