Motorcycle Hauler (was: Looking for my first Sportsmobile!)

I'm doing a UJoint offroad conversion on a 2002 E350 XLT EB V10.

Re: WANTED: Looking for my first Sportsmobile!

I'm talking about a factory build.. the most common rb and eb 50.. with these floor plans you lose the "truck" portion of your 1 ton Van. If someone has created a custom build, then that's different. It's not an SMB, it's a DIY. No offense to any of the owners here, it's just not practical for me to have a closet, shower and a toilet eating up valuable cargo room. It's more important for me to be able to haul a load of lumber to the cabin and keep it dry. Secure a Motorcycle and gear while I'm away from the vehicle. You know "truck" kinda stuff without towing an over grown trailer.

I'm sorry if I offended you. grow some skin

You might actually read through some of the Forum here. Not only is Chris a valued member on this site, there are many members who have discussed just what you posted. Just because the site is called Sportsmobile Forum doesn't mean other manufactures are not discussed on this site. Take a look. Really, I'm not pulling your leg!

Aye, so you're talking about the Brian Lopes 55 edition then, the Sportsmobile designed, made, and sold by Sportsmobile as a toy hauler?

Or are ye just confused that the reason some of us do not use our vans to haul motorcycles is because we have a closet, shower and toilet so a motorcycle won't fit? Ye cannot get an EB50 that has room to put a regular motorcycle in, as the bed is in the way.

It's ne tha' ye be offensive, ye are just ne makin any sense of the matter.

Sounds like Jage has been spending too much time at the Renaissance Faire. You need to stop wearing those green tights too.
