SOLD: 2001 4x4 V8 Sportsmobile EB45 Penthouse Top

Loaded 2001 4x4 V8 Sportsmobile EB45 Penthouse Top $34,000 OBO

This van is super loaded. It has pretty much everything you can get in a Sportsmobile. It is in very nice condition with very little rust (some surface rust on frame). No rips or tears in upholstery or carpet. No weird smells!

The 4x4 system is brand new, so this van has not been abused off road. Also, since Agile modifies the output shaft of the transmission requiring total removal and dismantling of the transmission, they rebuilt the transmission while it was out just because it had over 100k on it (why not?). They installed custom valved Fox shocks all around, and it handles great!

5.4 Liter V8
125,000 miles
New rebuilt transmission
Brand new 4x4 conversion by Agile Offroad
Twin Traction Beam (TTB) Independent Front Suspension (IFS)
Fox Shocks Front and Rear (custom valved)
Touch Button Transfer Case
Fox Steering Damper
Limited Slip Rear Differential just rebuilt and installed
Brand new 285/75-16 Nitto Terra Grappler Load Range E with brand new allow wheels (5)
Propane Tank (frame mounted)
Two Burner Stove
Suburban Propane Furnace
Cummins/Onan Built-in Generator (removed from vehicle by Sportsmobile West and refurbished by Onan factory in 02/14)
Rear A/C (Starcool -runs off van, Onan generator, or shore power)
Fiamma F45 exterior awning
Large 2-way fridge with freezer
Sink
Exterior Shower
Hot Water Heater
Microwave
LED Interior lighting
Aluminess rear tire carrier
Complete tune up just completed
New coils
New spark plugs
New fuel filter
New air filter
New oil filter and oil change
Leather front seats
Thule rack on penthouse top
Power Windows, Door Locks
Cruise Control
Factory Air Conditioning
Tow hitch
Tons of storage
All interior systems inspected and repaired as necessary by Sportsmobile West in 12/13

Disclaimer: This vehicle has a CA Salvage title due to a theft in Missouri. There are no accidents either known by me or on Carfax, just the theft. During the theft the steering column trim was damaged and a few items were stolen from the van before it was recovered by the insurance company after they had paid the claim, hence the salvage title. The steering column was repaired and a new ignition fitted.

Further Disclaimer: I purchased this van to convert to 4x4 and give Ramsey (BajaSportsmobile) some business, and then to sell. Iím in it to make a couple bucks, because I want to spend more money on my personal van.

And as a thank you to Jage for running this invaluable site, I'll donate $100 to him to support the site if I sell it here.







A bunch more pictures here.

Re: Loaded 2001 4x4 V8 Sportsmobile EB45 Penthouse Top

I can vouch for this SMB being an incredible opportunity for someone as I have driven this
prior to Rallypam owning it. Converting it to 4x4 has made it even better. In my opinion the Onan is one of the things that make this special as it is good in hot weather campings since that will run the star cool air systems...

Just my opinion.

Re: Loaded 2001 4x4 V8 Sportsmobile EB45 Penthouse Top

To answer a couple questions I received about what all the things on each side are:

Driver side (front to back):
propane access door
30A 120V shore power plug
city water inlet
exterior shower (white access door).

Passenger side:
porch light and 120V plugs just in front of rear wheel
sink plumbing vent above rear wheel
propane furnace inlet and exhaust behind rear wheel

The exhaust for the generator is next to the exhaust for the van, you can more or less see it in the passenger side photo behind the rear wheel.
