Re: Selling my Sportsmobile - $9000
Here is the detail as well.
1992 Sportsmobile Ė Ford E150
Well, the time has come to have to sell my beloved Sportsmobile ?
If you are looking for a reliable camper to go up North or weekends to the beach, etc. this is the perfect vehicle.
I am the second owner of this van. When I bought it came with the original Sportsmobile cabinetry and accessories. After having a child and camping in it many times I realized that it did not need all the stuff in it as we did most everything outside of the van including washing dishes and grilling.
Last year I finally took on the project and took all of the insides out down to the paneling and remodeled it to fit my needs more. I have kept inside the van the refridgerator and microwave.
I took out 80% of the cabinets, hot water heater, sink and on board water 20gallon tank. I have all of these items in storage, so if the next owner would like to put everything back in they can, they would only have to have cabinets installed as the cheap mdf wood they used was no longer suitable for keeping. I also replaced the carpeting, but you can see the holes underneath if someone wants to re-run the inside plumbing.
Also last year I had the steering box replaced, new radiator, hoses, belts, fuel filler hose replaced. In addition I added a Fiamma 45s awning, this thing is sweet and only takes one person 2 minutes to set up.
She has 139K miles on her and we only put on about 4k a year. These Ford E150 engines have been known to go to 300k easily, in fact I ran into a guy who had the same van that he used for construction and he mentioned that he cant kill the thing after 400k on his.
I will try to outline some of the features of the van, but if you have any questions please donít hesitate to contact me.

Areas for improvement:
The paint is bad and there are two spots or rust and a couple dents. A quote I got from one shop was $1500. It would make this look brand new if that was done.
There is a slow oil leak from the pan gasket. Since its so minor and not big, I have not needed to get it fixed.
