“My Sportsmobile 4×4 takes me places other photographers cannot get to. I love using the van as a blind and shooting wildlife through the windows of the pop-up top.”
– Jack Panzeca, Photographer

Sportsmobile has specialized in converting vans since 1961 for all kinds of uses. We believe no one is more experienced than Sportsmobile.
We can finish out the van’s interior, install cabinets, work tables, partitions and a wide selection of options including electrical, propane and plumbing systems. Just let us know your needs. Our converted vans meet applicable RVIA (Recreational Vehicle Industry Association) codes and FMVSS (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards). This is important for the safety of your employees and liability considerations.
We have converted work vans for a wide range of uses including construction field offices, refrigerated services, oil and gas exploration, surveillance and search and rescue.
Customer requirements: large tool and parts storage capacity with lots of drawers. Tough counter-top workspace. Plenty of lights and 1220 volt outlets. 7,500 watt diesel generator for air conditioning and test equipment.
“Our high expectations were all met.”
— Mike Rudd
Suzanne’s mobile artist studio goes along with her base-camp trailer. She will drive to different scenic areas to paint in her Sportsmobile Ford EB van and return to base camp periodically.
This work van was built for Sergei Kalinin of Siberia. It’s a Ford E350 4-wheel drive. The Sportsmobile is equipped with Mattracks wheels/tires, which make it almost tank-like, to withstand long commutes in the long harsh winters and wet weather of Siberia. Siberia has eight months of snow and winter weather and four months of wet weather with plenty of mud.
Sergei is a construction contractor who spends long winters working from this type of vehicle. The Mattracks wheels/tires can be easily converted from one to the other. This photo shows the tracks sitting beside the tires.
The custom interior includes swivel chairs, day and night shades, bed, marine toilet, shower, microwave, diesel galley with stove, and refrigerator. Air-conditioner, Espar furnace, water heater and lots of storage compartments.
The vehicle left Sportsmobile in late August 2010 and was trucked to New York, where it was created and shipped to Finland. Kalinin received the vehicle after one month at sea. He then drove it to Russia.
