FS: Fiberglass-top RB / $9500

No mention of overall mileage on this rig, but price isn't bad and looks reasonably well-kept. I really dig the stripes on the sides of this vintage of SMB!

Nice equipment list on this van! Starcool, Furnace, etc.....and then that low-operating-hour generator that could be a great thing....(or a terrible thing....if it hasn't run in a long time, it might need attention....)

Being a '96, this is the last year of the trusty 5.8L (351W) ---- but it's also the first year for the modern OBD2 engine computer setup, so these 1996 models are definitely intriguing.

No affiliation!

(** Been watching this one for a week or so, and in that time they've already dropped their price from $10500 to $9500, so could be a nicely motivated seller....)

We have more or less that exact floor plan, but on an EB with extra cabinets in the way back. Really like its livability.

That's a handsome old Sportsmobile. I could love it just the way it is, perhaps some window tint.

Seems like a reasonable price. I had a 95 that ran fine, the only reservation was the huge number of little vacuum lines under the hood. A couple of them got brittle and snapped, causing vacuum leaks that were hard to find, and resulting in odd problems. The problems were probably self induced though as I had to move some lines when I replaced a thermostat, and another time when I removed the air cleaner housing.
