2000 Ford E350 EB50 V10 202KMI Penthouse 2x4

I am reposting my car, I could not edit my previous post pricing or pictures. I'll post the price (or changes with replies), here are additional photos.

2000 Ford Econoline E350 XLT Super Duty with the most reliable Triton V10 engine and 4R100 transmission.

Conversion by Sportsmobile - this is EB50, with penthouse, built in 2000.

We love our Sportsmobile and had endless memories traveling with our family of three. We hope to sell to someone who would love the car as much as we did and would create everlasting memories like we did. We will be sad to see this car go (specially my wife).

2nd owner, purchased in 2010 with 32,000 miles. Now it has 202,000 miles mostly highway miles from long trips from San Diego up and down the coast of California, Arizona, Oregon. Never taken off-road and extremely reliable. Very comfortable for long roads. Needs absolutely nothing itís in great condition.

This is 19.6 ft long car, useful when you want to park in regular parking spots. Some state parks have restriction to allow maximum 20ft vehicles and this length fits perfect. Narrow enough for it to be your daily driver.

Meticulously maintained (as every sportsmobile owner does), replaced oil sometimes every 2000 miles, and replaced parts before they need replacement :-). If you purchase the car, you will be getting a big box of replacement parts, backup parts that you can take on the road with you.

Sportsmobile - standard EB50 build in 2000
- Added few modifications that created a king size bed, but in general everything is original Sportsmobile built.
- You will be able to stand-up in the car, it has a Penthouse Top and walk without hitting your head unless you are 6' 4"

The Triton V10 engine -
- engine oil was changed every 2,000 - 3,000 miles
- gas engine gets 10 miles - 12 miles per gallon
- everything works absolutely perfectly
- replaced everything before it needed replacement :-) - sparkplugs, cables, radiator, hoses, battery
- Added isolator bypass switch in case your battery runs low, you can use the house batteries to start the car ( you have to switch it back once you start the car).
- never had any issue

The 4R100 transmission works like new
- changed every 30,000 miles
- never had any issue

Suspension drives straight and extremely smoothly.
- new front coils
- new shocks
- new bushings
- added back stabilizer (for winds this made a huge difference) it drives straight through the wind

Basics
- new brake pads and rotors | front and rear
- brake fluid flushed
- new fuel filter
- new battery
- new lights (blinkers, mains) all over the car (with lots of replacement bulbs)
- 33 gallon gas tank
- Michelin Agiles tires still lot of life on them.


Sportsmobile conversion:

Electrical:
- Surepower battery isolator (to prevent the house batteries to discharge your starter battery) Ė one way only power.
- 2 large SRM4D Interstate batteries 1314 Cold Cranking Amps, 390 @25Amps
- BlueSky Switch in engine compartment enables you to start the engine with house batteries SRM4D (the batteries are dual purpose to use for inverter as 120VAC and to charge your starter battery by using a switch)
- 3000W Renogy Pure Sine Wave Inverter/Charger
- Offshore power connection (on the exterior) to power up the 120 outlets or to charge the batteries through inverter/charger
- 2x Renogy 100W solar panels - total 200W
- 3x 120V Dual outlets (one in the back)
- BlueSky 2000 controller
- Samsung Microwave 600W

Water
- 10 gallon water in the interior under the bench seat
- 5 gallon gray water tank
- Water offshore connection (can operate with external pressure or internal 12V pressure)
- Sink with soap dispenser
- Exterior shower (on the back)
- cold water only

Interior:
- Swivel passenger and driver seat (driver seat canít really turn that much Ė we barely used this feature)
- Fire Extinguisher
- King Size Bed in length, slightly narrower in width
- Bench seat, seats 3, will turn into a bed
- Microwave 600W
- Space for Toilet Ė we recommend purchasing new Toilet Thetford 365
- BLACK+DECKER BCRK43B Compact Refrigerator 4.3 Cubic Ft, Black 120VAC
- AC - Starcool III, is tied to car AC or can be operated on 120 external power (will not work on house batteries -donít try it Ė it will burn your batteries). We tried it once only.
- Lots of storage space, the tire was pulled from the back and placed on the door. In the tire place, there is now quite a large storage space.
- Reading lights, Interior lights
- Upgraded speakers throughout the car 6 speaker system
- Original Stereo - to avoid theft
- Space for garbage under the sink
- Window Fan to create draft during hot summer nights (works by pulling air in or pushing air out)
- 12V plugs

Exterior
- Water and Electrical Hookup
- Gray Water outlet
- External Batteries
- Spare Tire
- Latter on the back door.
- Light under Awning
- Awning
- Very well preserved - great color
- Yakima Rack Bars
- External Light by the doors
- There are few spots that ever Sportsmobile owner needs to maintain
- Tires have 20-30K miles left on them Michellin E series Cross Climate always rotated/balanced at Encinitas Discount Tire

You should know before you buy it:
- You can see on the window a crack - I have been driving with it for probably 3 years, it doesn't bother me but you may want to take care of it.
- There is a small dent on the rear door where the tire is located, I fixed it with a plate (if you are wondering about the screws)
- The engine consumes about 1.5 quarters (or so) of oil per 2-3 thousand miles, depending on your driving. I just replaced all oil every 2-3 thousand miles.
- Both right and left side where the penthouse is attached - the corners have rust. I maintained it each year with Lap Sealant and painted with rust proof white color.

The car is in excellent condition ready to go on a road trip anytime across the country.

Sportsmobile craftsmanship is excellent, they use anchors in their build to assure safety and security.

You will be getting a well maintained car, with a lot of life in it.

I'll add price in replies

Just sayin' - giving "some" indication of pricing would assist in weeding out potential buyers and saving you unnecessary and repeated phone calls - GLWS -
