How old are Sportsmobile owners??

Just wanted to start a thread about the age of Sportsmobile owners. I just turned 33 and purchased our first SMB, a 1995 RB30 2wd. My wife and I both work full time and even on some/weekends, but we wanted a "camper" for weekend getaways and family trips. We needed a penthouse so our son could sleep up top as well. If everything with our SMB works out and we decide it will be something that we will add permanently to our stable, we'll have to save up to upgrade to a newer 4x4!

But anyways, how old are you and what layout do you have?!

Re: How old are Sportsmobile owners??

You might want to make this a poll and list age ranges to vote on. Some may not want to share their age in public.

I don't mind.

67

Re: How old are Sportsmobile owners??

Thanks Mike. I added the poll.

For those of you who don't mind posting up your age and layout, please do so. I was interested in seeing if there was a correlation between age and preferred layout.

I'm 35.....

We have a 1993 EB30 with Voyager top. It'll remain 2x but we're planning to lift it a tad in the next few months. Other than that we are looking to add a full roof rack with driving lights and underfloor storage.

EB70 layout. 2WD until Chris at Ujoint gets his hands on it next year. I'm 41 and bought my SMB last march. Thanks for starting this thread-I've been curious just how old everybody on here is !

Well thanks. If somebody's younger than my van I'm gonna feel REALLY bad.

Re: How old are Sportsmobile owners??

46 when I bought in 2005. I bought an EB 50 cause I'm big and the isles in the walk-thru's are cramped IMO plus I haul equipment that would block the back anyway. Storage=the EB.
