In a shop littered with polished aluminum Airstreams and their competitors, some 6 or 7 decades old, it’s nice to see something modern roll through the door once in a while. While the ancient restorations really get our blood pumping, modern vans make our job easy. This Sprinter arrived at Reparadise ready for transformation — with its Sportsmobile conversion complete and its interior gutted from the front seats back. All it needed was a lot of imagination and a custom interior build.
Given enough time and neglect, all campers will reach a state of disrepair… sometimes the potential for restoration seems dismal. Fortunately that wasn’t the case with this Alaskan.
Once Sportsmobile installed their well-established penthouse pop-top, and Advanced 4×4 worked their drivetrain magic to this Ford Econoline – Reparadise stepped in to turn the empty van into a one-of-a-kind camper.
In the world of perfect combinations, this 1971 GMC and matching-year Alaskan Camper Cab Over gives peanut butter and jelly a run for the money.
