Probably appeal to a certain group. Looks kind of cramped in there but having a passenger van that is convertible to a camper will probably be a good selling point as is its overall height. I'll bet you will see some of those for rent in the future.

Looks like Sportsmobile is using Reimo tops, then doing their own interior..

Yeah not the typical for sure, I thought they might be stepping it up a bit.

That's not their interior. We saw some demo's at the Fresno facility, and Brian said they came from europe somewhere. Really high quality and fairly modular.

Not impressed with the appearance of the interior cabinetry. Looks like they just threw in some higher end "roadie boxes" for hauling music gear.

GTRV is doing Metris conversions now which look much better! Here's more pics:
