FOR SALE: 2008 EB-52 Sportsmobile , Tan, diesel, 4x4
MILEAGE: slightly less than 37,000
LOCATION: Kirkland, WA (a suburb of Seattle)
Description: 4x4 Sportsmobile with EB-52 floorplan.
The EB 52 has 4 captain chairs that swivel up front and the EB50 back end. Itís a great setup for a family because it puts the kids up front where they are close enough to talk and they each have a window. We put in slightly larger awning windows (40x24) than the standard build for better sightseeing.
There is limited counter space compared to the EB-50 floorplan.
Overall Condition: Great condition, always garaged. We take a great trip each summer for a couple months.
The Canadian Rockies, the desert southwest, and Alaska. Outside those big trips, we have a couple weekenders and ski trips.
Otherwise it sits in the garage, covered and safe. All service has been at Ford or Sportsmobile Fresno.
Why am I selling? I decided to go back to work
Since we won't take our normal summer trips, it won't get used.
Chassis: FORD E350 chassis
Engine: 6.0 liter Power-Stroke Diesel engine
I purchased the extended diesel warranty which is valid to 200K or 3 more years (from March 2011). I don't tow nor have I modified the engine.
In April, the turbocharger was replaced. I average 14MPG on my summer trips.
4x4: Was installed by Quadvan http://www.quadvan.com
in Portland when the van was new. I had the van interior and top built out by Sportsmobile Fresno, then drove it to Portland to have the 4x4 conversion installed.
Look at this conversation string for more details of Quadvan since I documented my investigation and subsequent purchase of the Quadvan 4x4. http://sportsmobileforum.com/viewtop...&hilit=quadvan
My van is on a 4" lift with Bilstein shocks (front and rear) and a Roadmaster Active Suspension in the rear. The basic conversions included new Ford parts including a Dana 60 front Axel, steering control arms, track bars, ABS and brakes. This included the NV 271 Transfer Case with manual F-series shifter and manual hubs. Quadvan additions are the milled (or cut) bracketing that is required to get the F-series suspension to fit on an E-series body. Spacers are used in the back, putting the front and back wheels aligned with equal width. It has been rock solid and I have had no problems or service events at all. I have had my Ford Dealer service it for lube jobs with no questions. 92" overall height if you are getting it into a garage.
Warranty: FORD Extended Warranty for cumulative 200,000 miles(transferable) was purchased in March of this year.
Tires: Three of the existing 265 BFG AT tires are worn, one was replaced on a recent trip to Alaska and has 4000 miles on it. The spare is new. My advice is that you replace the three used ones with new , also using the new spare so they wear at the same rate. The lightly used one would go on the spare rear carrier. Stick with the same 265 BFG's because I have very lightly used RUD chains that fit.
