Monster Camper Van

The other day, this monster van showed up in one of the parking lots not far from my house. I couldn't help but notice it, and quietly snapped a couple of pictures.

A quick trip to Google, and I learn all about it. The builder is an outfit called Sportsmobile, which starts the process with a Ford or Chevy van or Dodge (Mercedes) Sprinter. Various interior amenities are added, such as a head, beds, mini-kitchen, swiveling chairs, and cabinets. A pop-up camper roof can also be added.

The example in my neighborhood is a top of the line specimen, as it has been given a Quigley 4x4 conversion in addition to the camper treatment. This van would cost approximately $70,000!

A nice trailer or 5th wheel camper plus a 4x4 truck to tow it seems like a better deal, to me, since you can use the truck for many non-camping activities, and you would have a much larger living space as well. Even if it doesn't make the most sense to me, these monster vans are an impressive product.

This Van seems a house with wheels. Perfect to travel. It has a good interior design also.

Sportsmobiles are fairly common here in SoCal. Vehicle of choice for Baja surf trips.

Neat Campervan, it's quite a huge fella. Not surprised if they payed over $50k for the thing though!

Yes, this van is really amazing and impressive! It's really huge! You can really use it in different life situations and it worths buying it even with such a price.

I'm impressed that a lot of interior such as a head, beds, mini-kitchen, swiveling chairs, and cabinets have been added! So, now it looks like a house on the wheels.
