2012 Ford E250 RV Conversion RB 5.4L 9k miles, 2WD (Sportsmobile Penthouse)

2012 RB 5.4L 13k miles, 2WD (brand new and very custom)

This van has a Sportsmobile penthouse pop-top. The rest of the rig was designed by myself and a group of super SMB enthusiasts. It was then hand-assembled by craftsmen. If youre looking for a new, unique, and super trick rig, this is the one. Im selling it because I finished building it 2 years ago and it just sits in my driveway. Given my work schedule is not likely to change for next 2 years Im gonna sell it as it simply makes me sad to see it sitting unused. The low miles are 99% freeway. Ive camped in it like 5 times. Also, it's basically flawless.
