Uncle Scotty's 2009 EB-50 Sportsmobile!

After a long ride on the build vs. buy, redesign & reconsider roller coaster…and with spring upon us…I’ve purchased a Sportsmobile!

You may have seen it listed on SMB North’s website. I’ve posted a few pictures in my gallery that they provided. I’ll post more as the season unfolds.

It’s a nice setup and my family is really excited.

While it’s not a big 4x4 diesel loaded with lights & gear…it does have something unique. It has a rocket! I certainly haven’t seen anything like it before. My neighbors might have a few suggestions on why that is.

Cheers!

It has a rocket? Is that a euphemism? What am I misunderstanding?

I like rockets! Show me!

Re: Uncle Scotty's 2009 EB-50 Sportsmobile!

The previous owner claims he never had any trouble because of the rocket But I don't plan on picking anyone up at the airport with it.

He claimed it was for 'traffic control'...but actually carried a porch carpet and picnic table umbrella in it. I suppose flag poles or fishing rods might work as well. Both ends come off in just a few seconds if necessary.

It certainly is a conversation starter.
