WTB: SMB, GTRV, Traverse, or similar, gas, RB50-preferred

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a used Sportsmobile, GTRV, or similar van. I prefer gas to diesel, RB50 layout preferred, but I'm open to other designs. 2WD is fine.

It doesn't have to be perfect, but tell me about problems upfront so I know whether I'll have the money to fix them. I don't really want to post an upper cost limit - just let me know what you have and we'll go from there.

Thanks!

Do you have an age range that you are looking for?

Larrie, no - I'm open to anything that's not already falling apart, or starting to.

Thanks reelchef - I didn't realize that Pleasure-Way had a Westy-style layout until reading through these message boards, so I'm glad to add them to my list for searching. I wonder why they stopped making them? Not enough interest?

discussion on this forum... viewtopic.php?f=34&t=15575

Here is an RB50 in CO. It doesn't have a fridge or city water hook up. The fridge can be added pretty easily (I think) since the wiring is there, but not sure about city water hookup. Also, not sure if the water tank placement is where SMB put it. I don't seem to see pictures of other 50's having the water tank there.

On the plus side, it does have a V10 and it has lower miles.

They stopped making the Traverse because Ford stopped making the E-van, I assume.
