The Freedom to Sleep Around - Sportsmobile, camper, RVs


2016 Ford Transit with 2018 professional custom camper installation

Off Grid, Off road Specs


Sportsmobile Electric Roof

A $9700 installation at the Sportsmobile factory.  This is what they do best! With a press of a button, the roof raises to 6' 10" inside.  It has 5 large windows which unzip to screens. It is excellent for sleeping up top, with the feeling of a treehouse. The pop up top is a great advantage over tall vans for better gas mileage, parking in garages,  easy driving in windy areas, and missing the many overhead branches off road.

I am the second owner and have used the camper for 17,000 miles. The first 8000 miles it was a leased delivery van. I have owned full vans built by Sportsmobile and prefer the moderation in this, at 1/2 the price.

The Why

I camped 45 weekends in 2018 as I rented my home as a Vacation Rental - I got paid to go camping! Vacation rentals have now been banned in my area.  I am struggling financially without the rental income. This is the 3rd van I have owned and could have been my forever van as it is so well thought out and simple.
