Searching for my first Sportsmobile, San Francisco

Hi,

New member searching for our first sportsmobile. Ideally looking for rear bench/convertible bed seating an interior potty, pop top and dimensions so that we can fit it in our garage.

We have seen two of these for sale locally but both sold quickly.

Cheers,
Flight-King

May want to add your location to your profile so the sellers know where local is.

Once you find the right van that garage things becomes less of a problem. Just get a bigger garage.

Also look for Pleasure-Way Traverse or GTRV vans. They have much lower profile pop tops and fit in standard garages more easily.

Thanks - I have 82-84" of clearance at the garage door.

I'll post a want to buy as you suggested. Probably looking at 2WD because of the height issue.

I would be interested to know if anyone has measured the total height of those units. It might be that they are all too tall for the garage.

Thanks Scotty,

In my area getting a bigger garage would cost me about $1M plus a lifetime of higher property taxes.
