2010 Diesel 4x4 Sportsmobile

Not sure what engine, but a nice looking rig with low miles.

It says its a 10 cylinder diesel so even the listing party doesn't know. I'd guess a v10 gasser. Nice rig.

Ad says the heater burns diesel. My guess is that its the 6.0.

The ad also says the heater uses diesel from the "gas" tank. Oddly, I saw a similar Craigslist ad a couple days ago that referred to both 10cyls and diesel. Makes you wonder if they are legit.

It must be a VW V10 TDI swap; first time I've seen that!

If that really is a 2010 6.0 it's a rare bird. Last year of the diesel E-series. I don't know about $95K rare, but rare nonetheless.

Seems kind of scammy though. "Trust sale of Nathan Standing Bear's Sportsmobile..." Also CA plates but NV sale. I definitely would want to see it in person before wiring money to their Nigerian account.

Nathan Standing Bear did own an SMB that looked just like that, and, from what I gather, he lived a rather nomadic life, so it is not a huge surprise that the rig was licensed in CA, but the estate is being handled out of NV.

That doesn't mean that this is not a scam. It just doesn't mean that it is.

Glider you're right, it looks like the exact same van. I Googled Nathan Standing Bear and read more about him. He lived in Tahoe. Very common to have CA plates in NV and vice versa there. Gardnerville is only 40 minutes across the border too.

So on further review, way less scammy than I originally thought; probably real.

Nice looking rig.

BTW, the 8th character in the VIN is the Ford engine code. "P" indicates 6.0L diesel.
