Anyone here converted an ambulance?
I'm a relative newcomer here, and while intrigued with the skoolie conversion idea, I've never done one. While fairly handy, I clearly have a lot to learn skill-wise before taking something like this on (welding, metalworking, electrical, and finish carpentry in particular).
While lurking on PublicSurplus.com, I ran across several ambulances. Has anyone done an ambulance conversion? I think it might be just the thing for me. I want to do a smaller bus, like a shuttle bus or ambulance. Want to make a combo tailgate vehicle and mini-man cave, with enough stowable sleeping for 3-4 in a pinch (thinking hammocks and folding beds that won't take up much space when not in use). What I like about ambulances are all the existing built-in storage compartments, inside and out. I could use the exterior compartments for built-in grills and coolers, pavilion, food and corn hole bord storage, that kind of thing.
Would love to hear from folks who have done an ambulance or seen a good one. Prices are comparable to schoolies. Headroom looks like a potential issue, not sure?
Love this site.
Lurking without a bus for now.
