I joined Sportsmobile forum so that I could get some advice on repairing my neighbor's van that I borrowed for a weekend, then promptly broke.
The van is a 2000 Ford F-250 Sportsmobile (extra body). When I was pushing the top up, I forgot to unhook the back. I realized it pretty quickly, but by then it was already too late. Even just a single push up (given the extra force of the spring loaded bars) resulted in the bars bending and the top would not go back down.
I need to get someone to straighten or replace the bars. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Does anyone have any professionals to recommend? House visit would be idea bc I can't drive the van w the top up, but I can also have the van towed to the shop if that's the only option.
