SOLD 2000 Chinook Diesel For Sale SOLD

Price reduced.... A lot 29,500

Hey guys, I used to own the manfort (sportsmobile) and sold it to a guy in Germany. After bouncing through a couple of RV's I'm now selling my Chinook. It's one of the few diesels out there and I thought I might see if any one here was interested. Convert it to 4x4 and you would have a very luxurious package for getting off the beaten path.

Here are the specs and some pics. I'm asking $32,500, it has 108,000 miles on it. It's very reliable, I would drive it to Alaska tomorrow without worry.

2000 Chinook Concourse Features

Excellent condition, everything working as it should. Notice all of the extras including 22” LCD TV, Bike Rack, Swing out tire rack, inverter, solar system, two powered fans, touchscreen navigation stereo system, and more.

This is a unique Chinook in that it has the diesel engine and many upgrades. The other Chinooks (V-10) get 9 to 11mpg. This one can average 15mpg with plenty of power.

Nice! I have looked for one on and off but now is not the time for me. Anyway, it should sell quickly.

Good luck and nice rig.


Currently vanless. Weird.

Re: 2000 Chinook Diesel For Sale

I had to make my own bike rack. I couldn't find a good solution with the rear entry.

Re: 2000 Chinook Diesel For Sale

I hope it is OK if i write this here.
I bought manfort from "Panion". A deal with a lot of risk for me as i had no chance to check the van (just on pictures).
I have to say that Tom is a very friendly, reliable, trustable good guy who maintanance his vehicles very well. And he helped me a lot with all the things need to be done before shipping to europe. He helped me like we are friends for years!
I never had regret the deal for one second. Thanks again for all Tom!

BTW i also love the Chinook and i am sure it will be sold soon.

Re: 2000 Chinook Diesel For Sale

Stole this picture of a Chinook with Ujoint 4 inch 4x4 conversion just in case anyone was wondering if it could be done. Agile could convert it as well. I have been waiting for someone to convert a diesel chinook but I am only aware of a couple of diesels coming up for sale over the last year. The Chinook in the picture below has the V-10.
