2006 Sportsmobile E350 Diesel 4×4 RB-13 $60K OBO

Having issues posting pics, need to resize. Got a few to work. Just want to leave this here in the meantime.
We have been getting this van ready for an epic adventure just to realize that we can't tow our TT with the rear swing arms, tire and box installed. It reduces our turn radius too much with a potential for damage to the trailer. We are a bit bummed to say the least. We are in no way trying to recoup what we have in it. Just looking to move on.

2006 Sportsmobile RB13, Ford E-350 Super Duty, Bulletproofed 6.0L V8 OHV 32V Turbo Diesel with 198k miles, Quigley 4x4 with Agile RIP kit. VIN#: 1FDSE34P96DA06475

The SMB build options are; Starcool III Air conditioning, fridge, water system, underfloor storage in rear, 2000w Tripp Lite inverter, no propane or heating system. Back dinette folds into a bed. 20 gal fresh water tank, 15 gal grey water tank, sink and faucet. The top has a Yakima track mount system (round Yakima crossbars). Front and rear Aluminess bumpers, with swing outs in the rear.

More significant items replaced/added (per dealership records):

At 169k miles in March 2017: replaced fuel pump
At 165k miles in Oct 2016: rebuilt 4 injectors
At 151k miles in Sept 2014: Replace brake vacuum pump assembly
At 147k miles in June 2014: replace “motor driven vacuum pump”
At 140k miles in February 2014: replaced head gaskets, injectors, oil cooler, harness, glow plugs, front and rear crank seals, FICM, and head studs. The injectors, FICM, head studs and egr cooler were from Elite Diesel so not included in ford dealership records. The rest of the components were from Ford. At some point an SCT tune was also done, not sure when.

Items replaced September 2018:
-Rear brakes (rotors and pads)
-4 Cooper AT3 Tires
-Upper and lower ball joints
-Camber/caster adjustment bushings
-Oil seals
-Alternator, pulleys, belt tensioner, belt

Well, Looks like the East coast is the new hot spot - Heck, there wasn't even time for you to begin questioning your asking price. Bitter sweet after all you've done to the Van, but Congrats anyway Alex!

Bitter sweet for sure Felix. A very nice family from Arlington will be enjoying it soon. They're getting a good deal on this van, below asking price.
My Facebook ad is still in review!

I'll miss the capability for sure. Now we have another project in hand. Big shoes to fill.
