Sounds like a great deal. The V10 is an awesome engine that has proved its worth for many years. Just to be warned, it is a gas hog. Good luck.

BTW, Welcome.

Re: shud i buy SMB 19 EB Ford V10????

seems to me i can buy this van and do a 4x4 conversion and resell the van at a nice profit given what i have read on the board on 4x4 sales...people are really PAYING up for the 4x4 versions even the gas vans.

sportsmobile told me there was an outfit that can do the conversion

Whoo...you're starting to push the limit now...I figured the van was a 4x4. Are you planning to do the conversion youself? It might be more of a project than what you're thinking. Remember, it's a used van. Time and effort. Not to say it aint a good deal.

Re: shud i buy SMB 19 EB Ford V10????

have you seen the prices paid on 4x4 SMBs non diesel? go to sportsmobile website for sold vehicles then go to current listings. even if you take a haircut on list prices that is alot of dough being paid by west coast fans.

a new listing on san diego craigslist...4x4 SMB Ford V10 with less amenities (like no generator) offered at 53.5K ...40K miles

Sportsmobile said an outfit in Utah will do conversions on used vans.

Re: shud i buy SMB 19 EB Ford V10????

there is another dude on this site trying to sell a 2006 Ford 4x4 V10 SMB for 70K...albiet no luck so far

the van is well priced even when compared to roadtreks and pleasureways

2003 40Kmiles...for 22.5K....sounds like a good deal.

for some reason i noticed SMB owners price their vans very high...i just hope its because of the quality, workmanship and efficacy as a RV over the competitors
