Vans often prove to be an ideal alternative to large touring buses. They're much more economical to operate, easier to drive, maneuver, park and go places that larger buses cannot.
Sportsmobile can customize the interior to meet whatever seating, sleeping and comfort level you desire. We work directly with you to help ensure your requirements are met.

"We have made a number of tours now throughout the States and Canada. Our Sportsmobile has served our traveling requirements very well." — The Band
A variation of the above Van for Sam Riggs & The Night People band.
Essentially the only changes made was the deletion of the cab partition and door. Vinyl seat covers in place of fabric and the addition of strip lights under the seat bases. This is a popular plan for band vans.

The Pauline Reese Band Van
Pauline's western-styled interior reflects her country-western entertainment image. Primarily the van will serve as comfortable and economical transportation for her band members. It will seat up to eight. It will also be Pauline's dressing room and a place to relax between sets.
The dinettes will convert into one large bed, or into a single bed on one side and the other side for seating. The seat cushions hinge up with prop supports for storage access. There's also storage in the upper cabinets, over the end or in the rear.
The Ford's turbo-charged diesel will pull up to a 10,000 pounds trailer. The Sportsmobile has a full-height fiberglass top. A small inverter was included to run practice amplifiers and other small-draw 110V items.
