Wanted: Used Penthouse

Only thing harder to find than used aluminess, but hey, worth a shot!

Someone out there must want to go from sportsmobile to CCV. Or what the hell, go to a fixed top!

Will travel, will take it off, will do anything

But seriously, There has to be a way to get one that doesn't involve $7k+

I'm all ears!

Good idea, thanks! messaged him, hopefully the van is still in his possession. I keep looking for old/totalled sportsmobiles. take the top, replace it with a fixed and flip it for hopefully minimal loss.

I bought the whole SMB for $1800. Figure out what years fit and keep hunting for an older one.

No reason why any 1998+ sportsmobile top wouldn't fit, right?

Nope.. as long as it's off an RB from 92-16 it'll fit your van.

For some reason i thought the same tops were used regardless of EB/RB. Are they the same length but different contours?

Nope, different lengths. You can put an EB top on an RB, it's just a bunch more work. AndrewST has a good thread on it here: http://www.sportsmobileforum.com/for...s-v2-9841.html

You all seem to forget SMBs came from all three OEMs up until 2003. Each one had different roof lines. EB and RB lengths were generally consistent though. ie any EB was the same length as another EB for a different brand.
