Putting up for sale my much loved Sporty with just a tick over 60,000 miles on the odometer. It’s riding on 37” Cooper ST Maxx tires (95% tread with unused full size spare) and has Deaver leaf springs and Bilstein shocks all around with airbags in the back. It goes down the highway great for what it is. Hill Country Ford in Goldthwaite TX installed head studs/gaskets and all the pertinent Bulletproof mods in the last year on the 6.0 Diesel. Coolant filter, 7.3 fan, HPOP/Dummy pipe stuff, EGR cooler delete, FICM, etc. Currently running Innovative Diesel tunes and runs very strong with the tow tune uploaded. It has 4” exhaust everywhere it will fit and sounds great. It also sporting a new KC Turbos stage 1.5 turbo as well. The trans cooler has been upgraded to much larger Tru Cool 40,000 GVW unit and keeps the transmission icy cold even while towing. Also in the mix is a new 270 Amp Nations Alternator. A Redhead steering box was installed in the last year, huge upgrade over the factory leaky unit. Steers the 37’s way easier now. Aluminess bumpers are mounted front (12K Warn winch) and rear. It has Rokslide Engineering drop down steps that work great. It is a manual penthouse pop top. Pioneer Navigation deck/back up cam with Alpine Type R door speakers all around and a 12” JBL sub mounted on the kitchen counter. Sounds excellent. An Edge Insight CTS2 module is in place as well to monitor the engine. It doesn’t monitor EGT’s but there is an in dash Autometer gauge for that. Viper remote start and alarm are installed. It does have Trac Vision Satellite TV although I haven’t used it in years. Planned on removing it given all the streaming services available these days. It’s wired for solar and I still have the Kyocera panel Sportsmobile installed and a new upgraded MPPT solar controller yet to be installed. Removed the panel to lighten up the penthouse top. Need to pull trac vision dish and reinstall solar panel honestly. The awning is a Batwing wrap around unit and is practically new.

Now for the bad: I’ve had hell getting the front AC to blow cold. Had it in to several mechanics and a Ford dealer buddy that worked with Sportsmobile over the phone to try and work it out. Tried the Dieselsite heater core bypass valve, replaced lines, compressors, etc and only got it to blow cold for a cpl weeks.
Sure it can be worked out by Sportsmobile or a place that services RV AC systems as it has the Starcool rear AC unit. I relied on my Mighty Cool unit instead for front AC. Just want to give full disclosure.

The ol girl does have a few little dings and bruises here and there as well but they’re just part of her story and adventure. Van still looks great overall but it is 13 yrs old.

I plan on getting more pics obviously uploaded soon after I get it cleaned up and get my camping junk out of it. I’m sure I’m forgetting some things but wanted to get the ball rolling. I also have a rear full float Dana 60 axle that should be a bolt in and Detroit True Trac limited slip for it as well if a buyer wanted them.

Asking $75,0000.00 with title in hand and it’s located in W. Texas
I am the second owner and have the original owners Sportsmobile build out book that can be referred to for any specific info. I’ve never actually used any of the water system stuff or Espar but it’s all there. Same applies to the microwave lol.
432-270-1043 for any questions or more pics

Thanks for lookin.
