2009 Sportsmobile 4X4 - $50000

The ad leaves a lot to be desired but the price seems really good.

09 Ford Sportsmobile Van 4X4 Camper

Looks like you can't open the fridge while the door is closed with the galley in place.

There is a sink under the passenger side rear window (circle is the overflow drain), only city water hookup on the driver side, possibly shore power plug next to it (looks like a breaker panel forward on the gaucho).

If you get the VIN you can look up the build sheet at SMB.

10K is stupid low miles. I haven't been pricing in so long I don't know whether this is a good deal for a minimal build, but if I was shopping I'd invest in a carfax then a plane ticket in short order...

A phone number is listed, but I guess that doesn't mean it is legit. The area code on the phone number is an LA area code. I just did a license plate search on carfax and it does come up as a 2009. Someone call and find out! Could be a REALLY good buy!

What good is a fridge you can't open? I've never seen that on an SMB. Kinda reminds me of the pop up campers with fridges that you can't get to unless you raise the top, so what's the point really?

This van is about 20 minutes from me. I'm out of town this weekend but if it's still around next week, I can check it out for someone if needed.

I just called. No answer. Computer-generated voice for the OGM on the voice mail. I didn't leave a message. I'll try again a couple of times. My nose is telling me that something smells just a wee bit off with this situation. I think I'll resist the temptation to send a money order to Nigeria.
