Re: Mitsubishi based Sportsmobile

The van cutaway is better looking than the pickups IMO...didn't know they based off a van.




SMB should be going that way.

Not to mention better approach angle, better break-over angle, better departure angle, better visibility over the hood, lighter weight......

Do you need Chris's phone number? He gave me a brochure for that van-a-thing earlier this year.

Re: Mitsubishi based Sportsmobile

The only downside I can see is that you can't park your pooch in the camper section while driving, and you have to exit the vehicle to access the camper. Otherwise, looks terrific.
