2001 Ford E250 SMB EB-15 only 55k miles, $21000 San Diego

Saw this pop up on my radar...a great price for a what looks like a mint SMB.

Light on options though...no stove or starcool, don't see evidence of a furnace either. It has the lower side access door outside for the propane tank though, so maybe it has a furnace?

Propane looks to be for a water heater, and possibly the fridge is propane fridge.

Nice rig and great price!!!
If it's indeed got onboard propane behind that access door....then that's great.....super easy to add your own propane heater (and there's definitely better options available now than the Suburban ones that SMB installed back in 2001....)

The deals are still out there.....

That's pretty neat looking. What a strange omission to not have the stove. Guess a Coleman is just as easy and makes less ruckus down the road.

Just texted the seller. No furnace or water heater. So Iím not sure if that is a propane door.

I prefer not to have it to preserve precious counter space. This Japanese made Iwatani EcoPremium model fits perfectly in a standard SMB drawer and cooks awesome. It's also handy to take out to a picnic table outside when the weather is nice.

Thanks - that sucker puts out some serious BTU! Lord knows I spend a good amount of time at Asian markets so fuel wouldn't be an issue. You may have a future convert!

You can get the butane canisters lots of places now. I picked one up at Walmart today for 2.97 IIRC.

They are! I find that one can only lasts for about 3 or 4 meals, so you have to take a few cans with you if you're on a long trip. But at $3 a pop at Walmart no problem!

Can't believe this rig is still up for sale.
