Captain Seats 3rd & 4th
“There were always more than enough options to get just what we wanted, and we added all our little details to make it special.”
—Frank and Michelle Drewry
3rd and 4th Captain seats (O) can be added to some standard floor plans, or included with a plan you design. The foam is molded and contoured for long distance travel comfort. The seats swivel, recline and have fore/aft adjustments. Arm rests will swing up out of the way. Uphostery can match or contrast with your interior colors.
The Sprinter Cab Captain seats have many adjustments. Swivels are (O). The photos show Sprinter cab seats that have been re-upholstered to match the rear seats.
Cab divider curtain (O) can provide quick privacy or faster cooling/heating in the cab or rear.
Tell Me About The Electric Refrigerator?
Refrigerator 3E (2.7 CF) — is included in the Standard Equipment Pkg. It pulls only 2.5 amps when running on 12V. It can be exchanged for an optional 4E (3.6 CF) for Sprinter, Ford or Chevy vans. Sprinter vans will also accommodate a 7 CF model.
Electric Refrigerators are far more popular than the Three-Ways with Sportsmobile owners. Electric Refrigerators cool with a very efficient sealed compressor. You do not need to park level. No outside van vents are required.
When you are driving or parked, the Refrigerator runs off the 12V Auxiliary Battery. The 4E draws 2.8 amps. When you park, and your Auxiliary Battery is fully charged, you can normally run one to two days. Want to stay another day? Run your van’s engine for a short time or take a side trip. If a Second Auxiliary Battery (O) is added, you can normally run two to four days. You can also add a 12V Solar Panel Charger (O) to help keep your Auxiliary Battery/Batteries charged.
What Is A Three-Way Refrigerator? (O)
Refrigerator 4EP (3.6 CF) (O) runs on 12/110V or propane (O). You must park level with a Three-Way Refrigerator. Three-Way Refrigerators cool by way of an absorption process. They take several hours to make ice. Outside vents in the van’s side are required. A Three-Way Refrigerator, when on 12V, will only maintain the refrigerator’s initial temperature. It will also drain the Auxiliary Battery in several hours when parked.
We recommend the Three-Way Refrigerator only if you are going to be parked for extended periods of time and will not have a 110V hookup, or Generator.
Norcold electric refrigerators have proven to be highly reliable and efficient over the decades.
Electric refrigerators use a quiet hermetically-sealed compressor. There’s no need to park level — up to 30°. The amperage draw is quite low with improved cooling performance in higher ambient temperatures. They cool down fast, there’s virtually no maintenance and no outside vents.

Dometic 3-way absorbtion type refrigerators have been available for more than 50 years. Three-way Dometics cool by way of an absorption process. You must be parked level. We recommend 3-way refrigerators only if you are going to be parked for extended periods of time without a 110V hookup or generator. Three-way refrigerators are an additional cost option in place of the standard equipment 3E electric.
