Thatís a very good price IMO. Not sure if itís actually a Sportsmobile (which is a van converter), but the interior build looks like one. Usually they will have pop-tops, or occasionally an extended high top. Either can be retrofittted if you want to stand up, for about $12-15k (pop top) or a bit less for a fixed top. With a pop top and your interior build, year, and low miles your van would easily be worth in the mid-30s or possibly even 40s in todayís market.

Congrats and welcome. Looks like a deal to me. Might be some Sportsmobile, but not all looks like it to me.

Definitely a good deal. Not sure who did the conversion, but there are lots of things to like. Welcome!

Glad you guys think it's a deal too. It was an old man that did this conversion in his garage. He was an electrician and even provided a wiring diagram. He did really good work it's great, but it's not setup for off grid well like I'd like.

If i add some more solar power, more battery, and a way to mount a little honda genny on the back door it will be perfect.

Just took it for the first trip to a local campground. Drove like a dream. Feels new. took some more pics, converted the bed to a table.

The quality of work on this thing continues to surprise me.
