Re: Help! She's just not interested in SMB's??

I agree with trying out SUV car camping together. After having done several of those trips with my boyfriend (now husband), an SMB looks palatial. And after doing these trips, we discovered that we still like each other, even in small spaces, as long as we spend our days in the woods.

We would be outside the majority of the time.

I was just curious if anyone has had a significant other who has grew to love these for whatever reason after not so much at first. Yes! The ice cream and warmth would definitely win her over! I'm going to buy used/build myself anyway. Just thought it would be more fun If she was involved with the build.

So my plan right now is to go ahead anyway, take her on a trip and see if she has fun. If not there's plenty of fish in the sea! A man has to have his priorities straight ya know. SMB >>>> GF

You have just stated the perfect reasons for owning a Sportsmobile. Most people who own a SMB have it so they can access backpacking, hiking, biking, snowboarding and exploring areas that other RVs cannot get to. And we have the SMB because we want a few creature-comforts rather than tent camping. I just spent an hour yesterday showing my SMB to a woman who wants to travel for a year or two. The SMB doesn't work for her because she has no plans to go into any desolate areas off the main roads. A typical RV is perfect for her. But if one wants to go and see places that most people never get to see, an SMB is the best way to go. Plus it looks cool. It's a man's vehicle. Just yesterday my wife, who loves our SMB, said: "We bought a sissy Sportsmobile, but now it's a real he-man van." Here are the before and after pictures:
