2017, 25,000 miles, ProMaster, Electric Penthouse Sportsmobile
I'm selling my very cool 2017 ProMaster Sportsmobile. Livermore, CA.
25,000 miles, Chassis and top still under warranty. The build is done for anyone wanting to keep it a camper-van... but there is room (physically) for water tanks, plumbing, water heater if someone wants. As it is now, it has a hand pump sink in the kitchen and a 32x24 shower stall with a drip-drain. From the roof up, it's all Sportsmobile... Electric Penthouse top with bed and 12V lighting. the top is *FULLY WARRANTEED for the second owner* until October 2022. From the roof down it's all a gorgeous self-build with about 75% reclaimed wood. There are several 12V outlets, 110V outlets, 1 Deka 119Ah Deep Cycle Gel battery (floats at 13.2-6V), 1, 100W flexible solar panel and 1 30A solar controller by Windy Nation. There is room for 5 more batteries and 4 more panels on the roof. The van is also prewired for an inverter.
So, this is apparently the only ProMaster to have a SMB Electric top (with the loft bed). Itís really beautiful... but I believe in keeping it completely honest, so... The only reason we are selling it is because we have had an extremely difficult time with SMBW, on a very personal level, and we just can't enjoy the almost finished build because of this. We are set to lose about $25,000 by selling it. But *SMBW has extended their warranty to the second owner, which is awesome and will undoubtedly help us sell the van and help the new owner feel safe with the purchase. A used Sportsmobile with a full warranty is awesome. And to be clear: There is nothing wrong with the van, the penthouse top/bed or the self build. This is the van we thought we'd be building to keep forever. (We have now almost finished building its replacement, through another builder.
-Itís white, windowless (until you put the top up, then there are 5 windows), has 25,000 miles on it.
-SMB electric penthouse top was installed October 2017. (4 years left on the warranty).
-Itís a 2017 with the backup camera and Park Sense.
-The chassis still has the remainder of the bumper to bumper warranty as well as the remainder of the powertrain warranty.
-The van comes with a gorgeous self-build interior made with 75% reclaimed wood.
-There is 1, 100W flexible solar panel on the roof; 1, 119 Ah deep cycle Gel battery made by Deka; and a Windy Nation solar controller. The van hooks up to shore power via 120V plug wired through 3 separate breakers. There are 5, 110V outlets, 2 12V outlets, and is already wired for an inverter.
-It has a full shower stall (32Ēx24);
-Small couch for 2;
-An 8000btu air conditioner unit is cleverly hidden in a closet and vented out the side behind the driverís door. The vent cover for the air conditioner looks great and is bug-screened and wonít allow for water to get in.
-Iíve done all the oil changes myself with fully synthetic oil every 5000+ miles. I took excellent care of it (I thought weíd be keeping this van forever).
-It has a top-loading fridge/freezer (96 qts) built into the kitchen counter. It automatically switches from DC to AC as soon as you plug the van into shore power.
-The kitchen has a hand pump faucet.
-Thereís TONS of storage- inside and garage storage in the back.
-The chassis battery is prewired for 12V accessories or an inverter.
There is a 300W subwoofer hidden in a cabinet so the music you play can sound awesome (nobody deserves a crapy stereo, lol).
-There is still some customization opportunities (meaning mostly bare walls, and room in the back for water tanks and propane water heater/furnace, etc.).
There is so much more... Please ask about anything I may have missed, because Iím sure I did, lol.
This is an honest sale... the ONLY reasons we are selling it is because of the moral issues with SMBW and because I canít stand up in it, which I have come to find annoying. The van cost $35,000, the top was a tad more than $10,500, and the entire build/appliances was $14,000. Thatís $54,500. We looked around and found the prices of similar vans (year, mileage, build, *WITHOUT* an electric SMB top/loft bed), to be about $54,000+. So weíre asking $42,000.
The damn thing is beautiful and everything works perfectly, and itís clean. And we are pissed to be selling it on principle, but we have no choice.
I think this is a great chance for someone to own an almost-new Sportsmobile on the cheap.
Please get in touch if you're interested.
