The owner has this posted over on expo portal as well. Seems way overpriced to me. Pretty sure a new 4x4 is in the 65K range. 45K for a build with no suspension work? Having fun limping back from Baja on low grade diesel in your $100K vehicle.

Sheepskin and a mounted shotgun. Where's the bearskin rug?

We need "like" buttons on the forum. Those comments are hilarious!

It's strange. There are more then a few converted 2015-2016 4x4 sprinters on the block right now. I wonder why people are unloading them so quickly after clearly investing time and money in them. There are a lot startups trying to get into the conversion game, but I have doubts that builds done by no-name players are going to be able to command the type of resale value you see with Sportsmobiles. Only time will tell, but there are quite a few folks sitting on 6-figure vehicles that are likely to sit given the market size and ability to get loans used van conversions.

Notice the one's for sale are home builds and not Sportsmobile. People are looking to flip for a minor profit. They would take a loss if they sold a Sportsmobile this quickly.

But Sportsmobile does not offer the second row toilet with 12 Gauge Buckshot access option.

That's why I am doing my own build.

A lot of them are Sportsmobiles. I see them come up pretty often. People might just be realizing how much trouble undecipherable German electronics and DEF systems can be on the Mojave Trail. I won't own one until I'm independently wealthy, have indefinite vacation time (so my scheduled trips aren't ruined) and Amazon will drone you in a dealership Sprinter mechanic no matter where you are. I love my German sports cars, which stay on roads where AAA will come get me.
