Specializing in converting full-size vans into custom recreational vehicles, Sportsmobile turns your base people hauler into a rugged, rock-lovin’ beast. GP recently visited Sportsmobile West’s Fresno, CA location to see the factory and take a van on the road; the snow and ice created the perfect playground for these hulking yet nimble beasts.
