SOLD: RB-50 SMB Interior

Hey everyone, yes this is crazy and something weíve (maybe just me) talked about doing for a while, but Iíve decided itís time to completely gut our rig and update/upgrade cabinets and appliances. Iím in the middle of the process of staging the interior so that itís just partially disassembled, for now, I may completely tear it down for easier transport/storage. I have no idea what this would be worth, make me an offer, I have it listed on CL at $1500, local pickup only, will not ship. Great opportunity for the do-it-yourself builder looking for an interior.

Please keep this thread relevant to finding this stuff a new home, I will start a separate build thread on everything Iím planning on doing, tear down and will post pics as we make progress with the new interior, super excited! Thanks!

The lowdown-
2003 SMB RB-50 interior cabs/appliances

MDF cabinets in cream melamine-decent condition, some scuff marks, some water swelling in areas, chips, T-moulding in cream color has shrunk, gaps and pulled corners.

Countertop in gray with one piece built in sink, faucet included

Spice shelf above counter with under cab fluorescent lights, includes new LED tubes

Cube Norcold fridge-works fine, interior coated wire shelf is a bit rusted

2 burner Suburban drop-in propane stove

Suburban propane heater w/upgraded digital thermostat for controlling

Swivel spot lights w/LED bulbs

Rear cab/magazine rack unit

8 lb.? under carriage propane tank

Items NOT included:
Van!!
Bench seat
Port-a-potty
Solar controller

YES it is CRAZY. How much more upgraded do you need to be? Sounds
like a mid-life crisis or is it that you've been living at elevation for too
long Lack of oxygen to the common sense part of the thinker organ

Thats going to make someones day! $1500 is a hell of a deal. The fact the cabinets are already cut to fit the Ford van body should make this a quick sale.
Personally though, for that price, i'd tear them each down and make templates of each piece, then sell the templates for other DIY'ers at a reasonable price - I can see how this would/could help a lot of people.

Let's be careful with this idea. I understand the enthusiasm behind it, but quite frankly it is duplicating (ripping off) SMB's design. While hardly groundbreaking in their design, the design does belong to SMB.

You have a valid point, I had only taken into consideration the "convenience of design" for others interested in building out their own.

REF, good luck selling the interior package as a whole... but if you are willing to piece it out, I'm interested in the rear cab/magazine shelf unit. Could pick up locally.

Very true. Did not quite think about that. I know it's trial an error with interior builds but for less crafty people it would be pretty awesome if there was a diy kinda kit for galleys and door galleys that did not cost a arm n leg

Now that this thread has been completely derailed, I feel comfortable adding this link to an article about a builder in SoCal that does exactly this. Saw this article:

http://www.curbed.com/platform/amp/2...-rb-components

Here's a link to the builder, https://rbcomponents.com

Just saw the pricing... gonna need lots of arms and legs.

I can totally see an opportunity in making Ikea like knockdown cabinet kits for Sprinters and Transits if not Econolines.
