Example — RB Sprinter • Platform & Bunk Beds
Andrew and Julia Gale designed their RB Sprinter to meet their outdoor recreation needs — primarily mountain biking and rock climbing. Andrew also is a marathon runner and his Sprinter will serve as his support vehicle.
A sealed and outside vented compartment is below the refrigerator. A portable 2000W generator and fuel can be located in this space that will run a 110V A/C, microwave, 110V heater or other 110V applicance.
Platform bed measures 66" wide by 73" long. Dimensions can vary. The mattress is laminated with soft foam on top of firm foam for sleeping comfort. The support platform is located at the Sprinter's wheelwell height. It can be higher to accomodate larger cargo below.
Bed and platform are removable. The bed can be in two sections with one side vinyl for ground cushion use.
Bunk bed hinges up. The retainer straps are adjustable so that bedding can be left in place when bunk is stowed.
Bunk bed measures 27" x 72" with three inches of firm foam. During the day the bed can serve as a convenient shelf.
Two people can remove the bed in about two minutes. Each end has a steel socket fitting. (O)
"We first thought we would need an extended body Sprinter to meet our requirements. However, with some careful planning and Sportsmobile help, we found the regular body Sprinter would work just fine.
We are going to the Ironman Triathlon in Idaho for our first trip. We are quite happy."

Example — RB Sprinter • Platform Bed
'06 Sprinter EB
Ryan and Susan travel full time building multi-use trails and riding their mountain bikes.
An electric flush Porta Potti stows in the bottom of the front cabinet. The stove and propane system were deleted for credit, but they could be installed later. A 4 CF refrigerator, microwave and custom sound system were also included.
There's plenty of height above the 75" long, almost queen size, bed. The platform and bed are removable.
The rear slider windows were installed high for better ventilation and visibility. See van top photo.
The toy hauler space will accommodate four bikes and lots of gear.
Ryan and Susan have now owned their Sportsmobile for almost three years. They have traveled 96,000 miles and visited all 48 continental states for work and pleasure.
"The Sprinter and Sportsmobile conversion have served us well for our trail design, construction services and fun. When we order another one, there is only one thing we will change. We will add a window behind the driver's seat."
