After a year of mulling it over, planning, more mulling, a few trips West, we FINALLY pulled the trigger today and ordered our 2012 Sportsmobile Ford EB! The more I spoke with the guys out on the West coast the more excited I became, and now, with the deposit check sent, it is hard to believe that it is actually a reality!
There are five in my family, and we have used everything from an H1 Hummer wagon to a Defender 110 for travel vehicles for off road adventures over the last several years, but I have always thought that the Sportsmobile would be the ultimate "base camp that you can mildly wheel" platform. The wife, kids, and I are all excited, and I will be sure to post up as things progress.
Anybody out there that can shoot me some pictures of what your rig looks like please post up! Considering the size of my family and our travel needs, we are more than likely going to do a variation of either floor plan 27 or 31, and will kit it up for wandering far away from our Midwest home to camp, mountain bike, kayak, dual sport, or anything else that involves getting out and enjoying the great outdoors!
