07 Ford Sportsmobile 4x4 Pop top, $76k, 36k miles

Not my Tonka Truck, but it could be yours... Looks like a reasonably nice rig.

That one pops up all the time, but never seems to sell. Not sure if the color scares people off, the price scares them off, or what is going on.

I'd drop the price to $65K, powdercoat the bumpers and ladder black, and I think it wold have sold by now.

I agree about the bumper and ladder colors. It would look a lot more serious and "together" with the removal of the silver color. It might be worth painting the penthouse roof to match the body as well, so it doesn't look so patchy.

Still going with this.......the interior in that particular rig could use a bit of "staging," as well (as they say in Real Estate circles....making the inside of a house look warm and attractive to "move into.")

It looks pretty austere in there, not very inviting....what with the cold gray washable rubber floors, white paneling, and un-flinching cold LED lighting. The lack of propane, stove or heater makes it literally cold in there. As far as amenities go.....it's hard to ever ignore the highly-visible, brave-looking toilet in the corner, at arm's reach from the couch....waiting for duty.

Not very homey stuff.
Feels like looking into an ambulance.

(All of this said.......I would still love to have this rig )

LOL!
Yep.

But seriously.....there's not even a Fridge in that rig.

The kind of adventures that one would have, with no food along (yet a very capable loo) are kind of hard to imagine (and not very easily enthused about).

Definitely one of the strangest builds I've seen. I personally wouldn't trade the fridge for anything......and I also can't imagine having a toilet in a vehicle of the size.

Oddly, a yellow 4x4 is exactly what I want. I even love the interior, and I have an ARB fridge I could put in there somewhere. The bumpers and ladder definitely need to be black, though, and the price lower. And unfortunately I gave up on a 4x4 SMB after the bank couldn't justify the asking price on the last yellow 4x4 I found - they couldn't include the "extras" like the 4x4 package, solar package, etc, and came up with less than half the asking price. I gave up and bought a used class C. Someday, though. Lol, maybe by the time I save my pennies, this one will still be around...

When I was looking at RVs and SMBs the last few years, I couldn't imagine NOT having one. After living in my Class C for almost nine months and having to dump the black tank once a week and wonder if the grey tank will have enough in it to flush the line after, since I don't use much water (don't cook, don't have to do dishes except maybe once a month, use the RV park showers), I finally get it. Next time, I will just have a Porta potti.
