I thought that was it! Nice. Just a tad drier when we were there.

What appears to be a full satellite system on the back. The side has a ladder AND climbing holds that have blinking lights in them. Rock sliders and strangely enough a sliding door. That high roof is tall....

This guy lived in and made Moab his base. Kept seeing the rig year after year. Just this last fall his house looked all cleaned up almost like he moved? He almost seemed offended when I referred to it as a sportsmobile, his comment was “ um no!...I built it myself” neat rig non the less.

90s Ford RB SMB spotted in Kittery, Maine!

Close to the Shipyard in a driveway. Beigh with stripes. I did a double-take because you rarely see a SMB in the Northeast!

A rare east coast sighting. Maroon/deep red 2wd SMB heading north on I-81 and then east on I-64. Nice looking rig. Looked to be enjoying the van life. Safe travels if you see this.

Tan EB Ford Diesel 4x4 w/ Big Bear sticker in window.

Spotted in the Mammoth Mountain RV Park over Easter Weekend.
We also saw them in the June Lake ski area parking lot. We waved at each other a few times but were not able to chat.

Made a trip to the San Francisco bay area this last week.

Saw a white Nissan NV going north on I-5 last Sunday, first NV we've seen.

Saw Fitz's Flint in Walnut Creek when we stopped by for a visit.
Saw lots in Fresno when we stopped by SMB to get a water pump switch replaced.

Yesterday afternoon we saw a grey Sprinter and a red Sprinter, both poptops and westbound a little east of Needles, CA on I-40. There was also a red high top Sprinter in the same area with a big rack on top which might have been an SMB.

Saw a maroon Sprinter poptop eastbound on I-40 about noon today west of Grants, NM.

There he is again... (tinkerbotsupervan on IG) guys a total kook! He spends lots of time in Boulder/Denver area and Moab. Me thinks he needs more stuff to pile on top of his van.
