Yes, in October last year. Probably what you're getting at is why are we selling it now.

We love this van and it's in great shape but we've decided that a 4x4 SMB (EB-50) would make more sense for the type of camping we are able to do here in southern California. I just closed a huge deal at work last week, and the commission check (and proceeds from this sale) will go a long way toward a down payment on a pre-owned 4x4 SMB. Much better/easier route than trying to convert this van to 4x4.

Let me know if you need more photos...

oh, i hear ya!
thank for the offer,
just curious, given the fair amount of preowned listed at the sportsmobile.com sites, really wondering whether it is gas price driven, as i do not recall such large numbers of smb for sale at anyone time but then again, i don't recall such high gas prices as well.
good luck!

The high price of fuel isn't factoring into our "sell" decision at all. We're actually looking to upgrade to a 4x4 diesel in all likelihood, and diesel is more expensive now than gas. I am fortunate (skilled, educated) enough to be highly compensated in my chosen career, and the price of gas while it may be a big issue for some, is down "in the noise" for me. We also don't use our SMB as a daily driver, we have a minivan for that. I doubt anyone who can afford the payments on a $50-100K SMB would be much put off by the price of gas. But that's probably a good starting line for another forum topic.

1st buyer backed out before seeing the van... There was another interested party from Utah I believe, but I lost your email. Not sure where it went. Can you please re-email me.

Saw your rig today..

Nice rig. We were on the way to shop for lunch/dinner & your van was parked on the way to vons for us. I think there are a couple other SMB's in this district.

Yeah we live in a place that doesn't allow RVs to park on the property, but they conveniently provide some prime on-street parking. So I grabbed the parking spot closest to the major intersection, and "Popped The Top" to grab attention from passersby. Got some calls that way. One dude that was trying to compare it to a Eurovan. "But why's it so expensive?" he kept asking. Hey you want a minivan, buy a Eurovan. You want a truck with some space inside and the ability to pound the dust offroad, buy a SMB. Sent him to look at the sportsmobile website to get a feel for what the prices are used and new. He couldn't believe it when I told him that some of these babies go for over $100K new.
