Sold - 2008 Ford Sportsmobile Conversion Van

$23,000

Seller's Description

I've had the camper several months and made two trips. Circumstances changed and now a car suits my needs. The van is very clean, has no damage to the exterior or interior (other than a minor paint chip or two). It has 53,000 miles, is powered by a Ford V-10 engine and gets between 12-14 miles per gallon, depending on the terrain/driving style. Plenty of power for mountainous areas. Equipped with limited slip differential. It's a very solid highway vehicle. The engine is quiet and will cruise at 70 all day. When I bought the Sportmobile in August 2021, the van was equipped with a wheelchair lift. It took up room, rattled and I had no need for it. I had it removed to free up space. The two bench couches open into a bed. It's smallish for one person, really tight for two. My plan was to use the area behind the driver's seat for additional sleeping area. There's room for an inflatable twin mattress or a built-in bed, depending on your needs. The van has storage cabinets around all four sides of the camper area. The cabinets are well made, with press-and-turn devices to open the doors. There is extra storage space under each bench seats. There's other space beneath the sink, over the rear doors and in the enclosed toilet space. That was my plan -- to install a removable bar to hang clothes. The toilet is an actual flushable unit that can be pumped out at campsites. There are campsite connections on the side of the camper for shore power, water, waste etc. This is a well-designed and constructed Sportmobile product ... not a homemade van conversion. I have manuals both for the Ford (heavy duty 350 chassis, powerful V-10 Triton engine) and for the Sportsmobile conversion. I also have a Carfax that was supplied when I bought the van in August 2021. The camper is equipped with a rooftop AC/fan that still works but no longer blows cold air. I learned after buying the vehicle that the AC is a sealed unit with no recharging ports. That means you'd have to remove the unit and purchase a new one. Purchasing and installing a new roof AC would've cost around $1,200 or $1,400, so I looked around for other options. I bought a highly rated Black and Decker portable AC that's also equipped with a heater and humidifier. It's new -- never used, and stores nicely between the back doors and sink. It will need a simple drain hose (through the sink unit) and ducting, probably through one of the openable windows. A ducting hose and adapter for the window is included. That was my plan ... you may come up with something different. The nice thing is that the AC is on wheels and can be moved wherever it suits you once you're parked. It takes power through one of the 110 sockets in the van. The Sportmobile is ready for the road as it stands (aside from ducting the AC). For comfort sake, I would personally expand the sleeping area with a camping mattress. I have memory foam that comes with the van.
