Sportsmobile West converted the van in Nov. 1991 adding the penthouse top with removable panels for sleeping area, swivel seats and camping package with electrical and lighting package, CO2 sensor, electric fridge, sink, 9 gallon holding tank with electric pump, propane tank and hose for stove long enough to cook on the rear bumper, (found it much better to cook outside the van using a Coleman 2 burner stove), place for a microwave, along with some plumbing and a grey water holding tank. There are privacy curtains and drop down shades for the windows along with a privacy curtain for the lower sleeping area. Sleeps 4.
In 2008 the previous owner remodeled the van to suit their needs in order to travel for a year from Idaho to Canada, then down to Central America and back to Idaho. They removed the carpet, two rear captainís chairs, and rebuilt the rear gaucho bed and boxes. They went through the wiring to organize or repair as needed and added the solar with (2) 40 watt panels, MPPT charge controller, (2)SCS-150 Trojan Batteries, a 3rd battery under the hood, and a 500 watt inverter with ext. switch. They added sound deadening membrane, Insulation under the bamboo H/W floor and walls. As for cabinetry, They rebuilt the pantry by adding individual drawers with locks to be easier accessed. They added two more cabinet boxes, replaced the door fronts, hinges, and pulls. The tops and table were replaced with maple butcher block to provide the extra counter space. The rear storage boxes fold out for a bed or sitting area. They have ample amount of storage that includes the water tank and batteries.
A custom rear bumper was added that is used as an exterior work surface for cooking or washing dishes, with locking storage and locking jerry can storage for an extra 10 gallons of fuel. The hitch is extended and can be utilized for towing. There is plenty of room in the box to store all tools, shovel, jack, gear, equipment, etc. that would be needed for the journey of your choice. It also makes a great place to sit or stand on the way in or out the back doors.
The spare tire is mounted and lockable on the front ARB bumper that was re-enforced to carry the extra weight of the tire.
Advanced Four Wheel Drive in Salt Lake installed the front end with a Dana 44 Solid axel in October, 1991. All stickers are on the driverís door jamb with GVRW.
Things to be aware of-
The sending unit for the front fuel tank is currently only working intermittently, therefore the gas guage for that tank does not always read amount of gas in tank.
The automatic return for the windshield does not work, therefore you have to manually stop the wipers in the down position.
The AC does not blow cold air. I was told it needs to be recharged, but I have not looked into it.
We have only owned this van for a couple of months, I lost my job two weeks after purchasing it and have subsequently decided to go back to school full time for the next three years and we just cannot afford to hold onto it. My wife and I have taken several trips in the van and have had zero issues. It is a pleasure to drive and we really hate to let it go. This van has everything a newer Sportsmobile has at a fraction of the cost. The previous owner put a lot of time and money into making this van the reliable and functional van that it is, I hope we can find someone who will use and enjoy it as much as we wish we could.
Feel free to contact me by phone to ask any questions or to arrange a viewing. Van is located in Durango and title is in hand for immediate transfer.
