Front coils so it's not SMB's designed 4x4 conversion, possibly Quigley or SK. Looks really clean.

Dave,

Time for a new set of bifocals? It has leafs on the front. Check the picture of the front wheel.

AAD.. I mean ADD? Hell that whole article is jacked. Says 2WD but has hubs. I wonder if that is really the owner who wrote it...I am looking at it on a small laptop...well I still do need glasses just read this:

, Fuel Capacity: 35.0, Instrumentation: Low fuel level, Clock: In-radio, Coil front spring, Regular front stabilizer bar, Independent front suspension classification, Other front suspension, Fro

I wonder if the rest is up to par? If it says it has a prosine 2000 I wouldn't be suprised that it has a triplite. Actually just the opposite, might say it has the triplite but really has a prosine.

Re: 2006 sportsmobile RB found on autotrader.com NOT MINE

I spoke with the dealership yesterday and most of the info is incorrect in their listing because it was based on the standard Ford Cargo Van...they knew almost nothing about Sportsmobiles and were learning as they went. It was a trade-in for an FJ Cruiser. They did send me the original build sheet and it does have the SMB 4x4. Hoe that clarifies a few things.

I'd love to know the details of that trade-in.

Also you can attach .pdfs if you care to share the build sheet.

Though arguably stealthier than a Voyager top.

Re: 2006 sportsmobile RB found on autotrader.com NOT MINE

Well, I'm the proud new owner of this rig! I flew out Friday to finalize the deal. After my mechanic caught a cracked front rotor and waiting for the repair, I was out of the dealership 4+ hours later. Then 1100 miles to Denver through various snow storms, but I made it safe and sound. The owner took great care of it. I plan on putting in an inverter, a micro, an awning, and a side ladder to finish it off. Thanks everyone for the helpful answers on this forum...it helped a ton.

Congrats! I think Colorado has a high per capita of SMB's!
