The overhead bed features its own reading lights. Sportsmobile’s first conversions were for the VW and Ford vans. The pop-up system vans and their conversions were state-of-the-art at the time, but very basic compared with today’s, states the website. Sportsmobile introduced the pop-up roof system to the Sprinter to provide room for extra beds or additional storage area.
