No photos yet, but I just picked up this sportsmobile

and brought it home.

2000 (2wd) extended Econoline pop-up with 98,000 miles and 5.4 gas engine.

The van looks just about new inside and out, and drives the same way.

I've found a hard to detect ding and a couple of little problems inside- a loose sun visor mirror and a loose folding table on door.

No detectable rust, no leaks identified after hosing.

Checked out mechanically, and clean records from carfax and autochecker, it came with original records, and ford and sportsmobile manuals.

We gave $7,500 for it.

It was at a used car dealer, but only identified as a white three door econoline van- no mention of either equipment or sportsmobile- except a statement "has everything including the kitchen sink."

I'm going to read the manual now.

Sounds good. Post pics as soon as possible...we're all here waiting to see! Does it have stripes? I bet it has stripes. "Walkthrough" layout?

Awesome find. I Love stories like yours or someone replying to an ad for and old chevy in barn and finding a vintage vette when they got there.

Congratulations and welcome.

I'm going to need to get up to speed with posting photos.

I did get a few to my gallery... including one of my photogenic dog.
