I bought the van new from SMB with the cab done (front leather seats etc), 4x4, top and some windows installed. I did the rest of the interior myself. I spoke with them at the time about espar diesel appliances and they did not want to use them. I had seen numerous sportspmobiles and thought that many improvements could be made. I felt the cabinets could be lighter. The electrical system could be better. The appliances could be better quality. The bed could be wider. Interior storage could be better. Fresh water holding capacity could be better. This is what I set out to do with this van.
The interior is laid out like a VW westfalia with a forward facing rear seat that folds into a bed (OE sportsmobile). The seat has seat belts for three persons but this would only work with children. Two adults pretty much take up the seat. The galley is on the left with the fridge behind the drivers seat. The cabinets are constructed of 1/8th" birch plywood held together with fiberglass tape and west systems
epoxy. This is a pretty standard construction method for boats. The cabinets are very light, strong and waterproof (no rotting etc). They also don't have screws or nails to come loose or rattle.
Included with the van is a separate accessory sportsmobile power top lifter. Also included is a custom color matched exterior cab cover made by Jonce upholstery that covers the windshield and front door windows. It has bug screens built in so you can roll down the front windows for some extra ventilation while you are camping.
Also included is a very organized folder with owners manuals and receipts for all appliances and accessories used in the build as well as all service history and fuel log since new.
It comes with the box that mounts on the rear of the Aluminess bumper but it's currently removed while some minor repairs are being done to it. There are a few minor things that need finishing. I never really drove the van at night so I never installed any driving lights but I have some that will be included with the van. It also needs to have the thermostate for the espar hydronic heater hooked up. I never finished this as we never stayed in the same spot for more than one night. With daily driving the engine operation will give you all the hot water you will need. Half the fun of owning a rig like this is doing stuff to it so there will be a couple items for the new owner to take finish. I may try to finish up some of this in the next week or so, like the espar hydronic heater.
Offered at 59,900.00
