History Purchased used in Portland, Oregon from a member in September 2014. It was a very clean used 2WD Sportsmobile with the RB50 plan. We flew to Portland and drove it home to Southern California averaging 17mpg while driving the speed limit over the 1000 mile trip.

We began modifications right away. By the spring it was mostly done and we brought it to the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff. Over the summer we took a 10K mile, 8 week camping trip to the East Coast and Canada. What a fun and comfortable truck.

Removed the bar in the hanging end of the closet and added shelves like the other side wrapped in the same headliner fabric. Installed full length slides on the drawer above the porta-potti cabinet. Built a custom drawer above the fridge on full length slides, with a John Wintersteller type inner drawer for shallow items. Installed a gun safe in the notch above the fridge and behind the drivers seat. Added a 1" foam topper to the RB50 downstairs bed, inside of a flannel zippered slipcase for comfort and extra warmth in winter months. Replaced the older Norcold DC 51 with the newer NR751BB.

Sweet Rig! Does it have a 4" lift? If so did the rear sway bar need anything other than what comes with it?

Sorry for the late reply, just saw the comment.

The lift is closer to 2-2.5".
It is the lowest that Agile Off-Road will do to fit the 33" tires.
There is quite a bit of thread left, on the drop down bolts up front, for the Sway Bar. I would guess that it would work with about two more inches of lift.

Dig your favorite destinations list, quite similar to mine. I'm not familiar with Seabeck Wa though.

Near Bremerton and Silverdale on the Hood Canal. My uncle lives there and when we visit it is Kayaking, Salmon Fishing, Crabbing, Steelhead, hiking the coast, boating and waking to the sound of bald eagles every morning.
Hard not to like...
