I know this van and the owner.

This van is BETTER than the day it came off the Sportsmobile West line, and even at that point it was exceptional due to the attention to detail that driveabout put into this as it was coming together.

Wow, this is a very special opportunity for someone. There will be a very satisfied new owner and I would expect it will be soon!

Makes me want to sell mine too... but really, for that price there should be a roll of paper towel in the holder above the sink. Golly.

Beautiful van! Beyond nicely equipped! I am curious to know what your towing experiences have been? What kind of weight range? What does the van weigh?

Thanks for the comments and questions.

The van weighs in at about 10,500 lbs, depending on how much premixed margaritas and ice cream I'm carrying in the not listed ARB fridge/freezer. (BTW there is a plug installed for the ARB so it can fit snuggly in the back.)

As for the trailer, your question brought back fond memories. I attached a photo of a multi-family gathering at Stovepipe Wells, Death Valley. The little yellow trailer was a Fleetwood Evolution 2 that weighed 4,500 lbs. That trip had us driving over Tioga Pass in Yosemite (10,000') and taking the 9 mile, 3500' climb from Panamint Valley over Towne Pass into Stovepipe Wells. As I recall, not a groan from the beast.

Nice catch, eddyturn. I knew I should have hired someone to stage my van! I'm planning on adding the paper goods as a bonus for the lucky buyer.

City 10 smiles per gallon from watching people oooooh and ahhhh and point

Highway 100 smiles per gallon because you know you are either on your way to someplace great to meet friends or no one at all, or if on the way home, knowing you just had a great time in your awesome comfortable capable rig in places not many people get to.

Off Road - 1,000,000 smiles per gallon because you can do it!!

Parked in your driveway - Infinite smiles per gallon because it is your escape pod and connection to sanity!!

Lifetime mileage - memories to be cherished, shared, and reflected upon with family, friends, and acquaintances
