Sportsmobile.com temporarily unavailable

I know many of you are aware...www.sportsmobile.com has been unavailable for most of Friday, June 5th. Our server has crashed and we are working to get back online. This crash may have been triggered from a Sportsmobile picture on the front page of http://www.msn.com this morning regarding an article "10 coolest RV's on the road". An overwhelming amount of traffic on the site is thought to have overloaded the server. We would like to believe that is the cause anyway

You can see the SMB portion of the article at the following link if you are interested.

http://editorial.autos.msn.com/slidesho ... =1060937#7

http://www.sportsmobile.com will be up again shortly!

Thanks for your patience!

Thanks for the heads up, I was trying to check out some options this afternoon and was having zero luck getting on to the site.

Well, that explains why my email to Heber got bounced back..........

Hope the attention generates some new buyers.
