Our "new" 2006 SMB

Here he is:

My wife and I flew to Las Vegas, bought him and then drove home. Not quite 700 miles total journey. We brought along sleeping bags in our luggage and slept in the van at Elk Flats CG outside of Ely, Nevada. Everything worked fine! The motor ran like a champ.

We are very excited about our future adventures this van will bring. Hopefully we will run across many of the forum members here on the road!

Re: Our "new" 2006 SMB

Thanks everyone!

We have been looking to join the SMB club for a couple of years now. Finally happened and we couldn't be more excited. Still trying to figure everything out in the vehicle. Didn't come with a SMB manual so doing research.

Looking to add a bike rack attached to the receiver hitch. Also an awning and winch are in the near future.

I will be adding more photos of the van but here we are in Nevada after the first night in it.

Another Idaho SMB. Congratulations! I picked mine up in southern California almost 4 years ago. Nice looking rig.
