Hello from Tennessee!

I've owned my 2009 (2010 conversion) Frieghtliner Sprinter Sportsmobile for about 5 years now. Bought it at 50K miles and have put on about 25K.

I love just about everything about it with a few exceptions which have lately caused me to consider selling and buying a used Winnebago Revel. I will have a little $$ coming soon, but the more I look around for a decent used Revel, the more I realize it is out of my price range. So I think I will keep Ole Faithful and pep her up just a little.

Dream list:
- onboard generator (want to run AC off shore power)
- ability to shower inside, hot water would be great
- diesel heater (or heater without engine running and shore power)
- upgrade the cushioning for the bench seats/bedding.
- Lengthen by a few inches the passenger side bed
- replace fiberglass running boards with something more foot-friendly and tougher
- spiffy paint and/or wrap to give it some personality

So I joined this forum to get ideas and to see what others have done with their Sportsmobiles.

Those things are possible. Most here use Hondas or some other portable generator. I do have an Onan in my van. Very noisy though. I also have a Honda.

If you have a short wheel base, the inside shower is of course more of a challenge. Maybe one like some of the Roadtrek’s have with a shower pan with removal cover/pan in the center of the floor.
