Sportsmobile Classic 4×4 conversions look like they mean business. The burly exterior, off-pavement capability, and comfortable inside living space make for a tempting combination. This iteration, a 2005 Ford E-350 Sportsmobile 4×4, has clocked a mere 92,000 miles and is currently for sale on the Expedition Portal classifieds forum.

From the Seller:

“[An] outside the continental US move [is] forcing the sale of our beloved ‘Vinnie VanGoGo.’ We purchased [it] in early 2019; I believe we are the fourth owner[s]. Regular/annual maintenance at my preferred diesel shop in Castle Rock, Colorado (oil/filters, fuel filters, coolant flush), have receipts.”

Ashley Giordano completed a 48,800-kilometer overland journey from Canada to Argentina with her husband, Richard, in their well-loved but antiquated Toyota pickup. On the zig-zag route south, she hiked craggy peaks in the Andes, discovered diverse cultures in 15 different countries, and filled her tummy with spicy ceviche, Baja fish tacos, and Argentinian Malbec. You can usually find Ashley buried in a pile of travel books, poring over maps, or researching wild medicinal plants. Ashley is a co-founder of Women Overlanding the World and crew member of Expedition Overland. You’ll find this Canadian-born couple exploring a different continent in 2021, and sharing their trip every step of the way at Desk to Glory.
