So I have lots of random threads around here and always meant to do a dedicated thread for my van but never got around to it, well its time..... So before joining the Sportsmobile ranks I had a 2000 VW Eurovan Winnebago camper in pristine condition. It was a great van and started my camper van itch. I lifted it and did just about everything I could to make it cool, useful, and what I wanted in a camper van.......except 4wd that is (more on that later) but it had decent clearance and worked for the time.
Started like this:
Turned into this:
Fast forward 2 years and we moved to Utah from AZ, well there is a ton of awesome areas to visit but the roads get rough and on one of these said trips I realized I didn't have the right kind of vehicle for the places I wanted to go but I still tried
Then this happened:
So I figured if I could sell this van I had done alot too and that was in really great shape (I fixed up the bumper) and make enough then I could go on the search for a Sportsmobile with 4wd and I had always liked them and wanted one but what seemed to mostly be 40k plus was always out of my price range. Well I sold the van pretty easy for $34k (payed $22) to a lady that flew in from Seattle to Utah and payed cash, score!!
This was our last trip before saying goodbye (10yr aniversary with the wife, not the van)
Now we can get on to the Sportsmobile since that's what we all like the most here.
