Longtime Lurker Now Sportsmobile Owner
After a long time going back and forth on solutions for traveling, camping, mountain biking, and skiing, we settled on a Sportsmobile. I spent a lot of time on this forum researching different options and things to looks for. Obviously this forum is a fantastic resource.
We pulled the trigger on a 2004 E350EB Sportsmobile. We got the van from the original owner with under 30,000 miles on it. The original owner took amazing care of it. It has the first year of the 6.0 liter diesel motor in it, but was recently removed and completely 'bulletproofed', plus a whole bunch of other maintenance.
We moved the van to Colorado and are looking forward to really getting a lot of use out of it. The pictures below near its natural habitat in the Utah desert on the way home. We can't wait to get it back out there for biking and camping trips.
