Hello All,

I'm Brian, I live in Estes Park, and after 20 years of wishing for and saving for a Sportsmobile, I finally bought one.

I've acquired a 2009 Ford EB-350 6.0 Powerstroke with too many features to list. It's a monster, has incredibly low miles, and I'm really excited for the adventures I'll be able to take it on!

I look forward to meeting many other van owners and learning from you guys (and gals). The van I bought (see avatar) only has 18k miles, but it needs a little TLC because it's been in storage for a long time.

First things first: the engine. I took it to Performance Wise today to give it the works and ensure the engine will last.

Next, I need to do a bit of trouble-shooting on the water pump and inverter. I'll be back soon to ask questions and get a little help. Lucky for me, I'm pretty handy with a wrench and not afraid to get a little dirty.

2009 E-350 Lopes 55

I'm sure several will chime in with advice for the 6.0!

More pics needed!
