2001 4x4 V8 Sportsmobile EB45 Penthouse Top

Hey folks,

I've put up my Sportsmobile for sale. After finishing a year long roadtrip around the US, we are returning back to the rat race and need to sell this. You can PM me for questions or respond to the add. Thanks.

I sold this van to KM back in 2014 through this very forum: http://www.sportsmobileforum.com/for...top-13839.html

FYI, at that time it had a salvage title from CA.

That said, it was a super sweet totally loaded van.. and looks to still be in great condition.

Yeah, Thanks for chiming in rallypanam. We've maintained it well. To allow for more versatility we did remove the water system (it wasn't really set up for winter use) and the drop in stove (instead it runs to a quick connect under the van) and added 150w of solar, upgraded the stereo and added an alarm system. Having the solar allowed us to rely less on the generator on extended boondocking, but you always have it as well.

So is the bumper flaking issue because appropriate primer wasn't used before painting the chrome bumpers black?


Just curious because I haven't done that project yet.

Good question.. I'll ask my painter next time I'm down there.

That's my guess. When I bought it they were black. The first time I washed it the paint started flaking, and I didn't care one way or the other.

Is the title still salvage? Or is it clean title now?

It's a clean title now. The vehicle had been stolen in the past and was declared totalled by insurance so they could pay the claim. It was recovered a month later according to Carfax. No history of any major accidents or damage.

Well, just became aware of a few things that need to be addressed. Rather than sell the van with a bunch of issues, I am pulling the add until I get things squared away.
