Ad on eBay states this is a SportsMobile

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 1545100088

I asked the seller and he/she stated all work was done by SMB. I'm not an expert, but this doesn't look like a SportsMobile mod. Do they do work like this?

Anything's possible.. But that sure don't look like no Sportsmobile I've ever seen. Maybe seller doesn't realize Sportsmobile is a brand name.. i.e. yeah, it's kleenex.

No, he realizes it's a brand name. He mentions it in the ad and in his video he has linked.

Not many interior pics to go by, but I agree that it's not typical for an SMB build. I guess someone could have special ordered a wood paneled interior? Why you'd want to take a modern vehicle and go with a retro interior, I don't understand.

Cabinet brackets to floor look like SMB, but the styling is unusual. I wonder if it's possible they did some but not all?

Have to love that the seller included the blurry pic of his left hand.

The sportsmobile north sticker looks spot on for what I have on my van. I am sure that could be replicated pretty easily but I agree this is an interesting setup.

Re: Ad on eBay states this is a SportsMobile

Looks like part of it is OEM SMB: the windows, side wall paneling, and dinette/seats look like typical SMB woodgrain (similar to what is in my van). My guess is the owner then added the pine tongue/grove board cabinets and whatnot after SMB did a basic build.
