Compared to some people, you are.

Anyway, what you think is more important than what I think.

What makes a Sportsmobile?

I think if it gets you places and transforms from a "car" to a campsite!,.'and I guess you can't call it one without the sticker. But I agree it is in what you believe.

Re: What makes a Sportsmobile?

Besides saying "Sportsmobile" is less creepy than "van"... no matter how nice, saying van to people who don't know can come off creepy.

What makes a Sportsmobile?

Being able to go to the places you want and have a level of comfort that makes you happy. I like that I just surprised a bunch of trail rigs by coming out a trail they are doing a briefing on and I did not even air up just unlocked the hubs went my way.

I love this... All of my "friends" are calling my, ummm, Sportsmobile? a creeper van and think my new plates should say creeper.

But, in all honesty, it is much easier to say sports mobile than try an explain why I drive a van.

Re: What makes a Sportsmobile?

I think the penthouse makes the thing look a lot better.

Maybe Aluminess could make a Groucho Marx style eyebrow-glasses-nose-mustache front bumper to improve the look from the front. Gotta do something with the Snoopy lookin nose.
