“Now I can really travel in an environment that’s designed for my specific needs, safety, and real comfort. Thanks to the Sportsmobile staff and employees.
“It was a pleasure working with Sportsmobile’s in designing our van. They always responded constructively to our ideas. We are very pleased with the finished product.”
– John and Linda Meadows

Over The Years
Sportsmobile has converted lots of vans with special dog considerations, and other pets too, including cats, birds, and a snake.
Most Owners have only one small dog, and only need space for a small crate. Others have several dogs requiring space for multiple crates, special cabinets and other needs. Some owners show their dogs throughout the country, and need grooming equipment storage.
Whatever Your Needs we will be happy to work with you. We’ll build and equip it your way, whether it is a simple canine transport van or a luxurious self-contained motorhome.
Dr. Eddie and Mrs. Adele Neupert will primarily use their Sportsmobile to transport their four dogs for training and hunting. Some of the areas are only accessible with a four-wheel drive vehicle. Mrs. Neupert also shows their prize-winning dogs throughout the United States.
These custom aluminum crates open to the rear and front. There are two drawers in the bottom and storage on top.
- Two or four dog units
- Unique stack and latch system
- Metal slide out pan for easy cleaning.
- Deep stainless steel water bowel.
- All TIG Welded heavy duty aluminum.
These custom crates were manufactured by Kustom Krates located near Austin.
And when you shut the door you won’t worry about your dog. The rotary style door latch is the heart of the crate.
Mike Parker trains and shows dogs across the United States. The van interior is quite open with lots of visibility through the large, tinted Sprinter windows.
