Full list of Class B RV Manufacturers.
Sportsmobile Custom Camper Vans
We were first introduced to Sportsmobile custom van conversion at an RV Show. Angela from Sportsmobile Texas gave us a tour of one of their Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 camper vans. Ever since then, we have been geeking out over all their custom vans.
Our favorites are the camper vans that have been converted from two to four wheel drive for off roading. Follow Sportsmobile West on Instagram and you’ll see all the possibilities of owning one of their custom conversion vans.
The thing with custom camper van is no two are the same. Every conversion is a little different based on the customer’s needs. We learned this when we toured Sportsmobile West in Fresno, California.
Sportsmobile West Factory Tour
After meeting Jonathan Feld of Sportsmobile West at an RV Show, we made our way to Fresno, California to see how these custom conversion are built. For anyone seriously considering a Class B RV, we’d highly recommend checking out the Sportsmobile factory. Seeing the different floor plans and unique builds gave us some great ideas for our future custom camper van build.
Sprinter 4×4 Penthouse Top RB50
The penthouse top makes a huge difference when it comes to interior space and the sleeping situation. The bed will sleep two adults and the high ceiling allows us to stand up comfortably.
Sprinter 4×4 High Roof
Unlike the other Sportsmobiles, this layout has a wet bath with a porta potti. Most of the Sportsmobiles are built for weekend or week long camping trips. Although they are starting to build floor plans that can be used for full time RVing.
Ford 4×4 Penthouse Top
Although the Mercedes Sprinter chassis is one of the most popular, we really liked the Ford prototype Sportsmobile West had on display.
