SOLD: The Silver Streak is for Sale!!!

I can't believe it; I intended to keep her forever. But my life has changed, and I can no longer keep her busy, so it is time to release her into the wild.

Everything I have done with this van was with the intention of having it for a very long time; the rig is in excellent shape, and it is ready to hit the road. I have complete details in my photo album, "The Silver Streak is for Sale" Sportsmobile Forum - Glider's Album: The Silver Streak is For Sale!

Sorry to hear you are selling. This is a great rig that should sell fast. Very fair pricing.

To those who don't know the story I had the honor of helping Glider shop for and find this van. Glider flew me to get it, bring it home and go over it, do a few things and then ship it to it's new home in WA. Life was fun when I had that kind of time and the whole experience was great. It is one of the cleanest vans I have ever seen and no expense has been spared.

If I were in the market I would buy this site unseen if you aren't close.

Good luck Glider!

Wish41 and 86Scotty: Thank you so much for your kind remarks. I love this van! It is really tough to let her go.

And 86Scotty--you originally found this van on Craigslist, and gave me the heads up. It was a great adventure to negotiate across the country, for you to fly in to pick it up--sending me photos all night long as you drove her to your place --and then as you went through the entire rig for several weeks, making sure everything was in good order. Those were exciting times!

Hey Glider----add me to the list of those sorry to see your van have to go away, can't be an easy choice I'm sure.

You'd still be welcome here whether you have a van or not---your experience could be helpful to others who might find themselves in similar places during their acquisition, building and using one.

BTW 86Scotty's endorsement would be enough to tip me over the edge if I were in the market and even slightly unsure if your van was "the" van. He's had hand's on experience which goes far in my book.

Thank you, JWA!!! The van world has been so much fun...and I have learned a lot from you, from 86Scotty, and all of the other good folks on this forum. I suspect I'll still hang around the forum in the future, and if there is some tidbit of knowledge I can share with others, I'll be happy to do so.

I understand how Life can drive big changes that you never would have expected.

You did a great job with the pictures, but you need an exterior shot with the pop top raised. That's the only thing missing.

Hi Herb!
Thanks! Here are a couple, with an extra of the Silver Streak tucked in her cozy spot tossed in just for fun.

Happy the wound of selling is short lived...although I'm sure the scar will linger.
