Ken: I was at the Sportsmobile shop the day you were there to pick up your van. I am looking at the EB, and I am not sure but I think I can get the large under bed storage, the large fuel tank and the grey water tank on the EB. I think because of the extra length.

I bet you're right with the extra length.

I remember you at the factory, that day. I'm glad to see you're moving forward with your plans. Good luck.

Ken

I have seen some of your pictures and it looks like you are enjoying your sportsmobile. I am getting more excited about finally taking delivery (it's still a month+ off). I am still trying to iron out the small details.

I have made a deposit on a E250 but won't get it until the end of August. :cry: I'm going for the RB50 plan & PH and will get the propane furnace & stove top. Will also have a fw system with the sink and a solar panel. My last motorhome was a small class A and, when on the road, the genset, A/C & microwave saw very little use and I was mostly dry camping. On the other hand, I cannot recomend too highly a solar panel. They are super and almost take the worry out of batteries. Good subject!

philrod: I am leaning towards the flexable/lower profile solar panels instead of the solid glass ones. The flexable ones are not as efficent but they seem like they are hardier and less likely to get damaged by a wayward tree branch.

I have the RB 50 and I had SMB move the shore power hookup to behind the rear wheel and that leaves the whole area admidships, outside of the frame, wide open (except for the diesel pumps which can be moved to inside the frame rail if necessary). That would leave a large area for a grey water tank. I usually put an extra twenty-four gallon fuel tank here.
Food for thot?? :roll:

solar

Good point Peasbugs. I'm an amateur astronomer and tend to park out in the open as much as possible. (unless it's really hot) so will probably stay with the more efficent version.

We have propane furnace and hot water. Had SMB West provide a connection on the outside of the van, so we can use the propane stove and BBQ, outdoors. A 12' hose keeps the cooking odors away from the interior.

Just wanted to throw my two cents out: My van is scheduled to be built with the under floor storage as well as the extended gas tank and grey and black water tanks. I did have them run a seperate grey water tank for the galley sink to increase the overall capacity for the grey water.

I'm looking at taking delivery in 10 weeks, hopefully.

Black water - Then you must be getting the built in toilet. How much extra Grey water will you be able to hold? Where are they putting the extra tank?
