Against the better judgement of our friends and coworkers, Chelsea and I have bought an ambulance. With the exception of the two photos below, the purchase was made sight unseen. We're going to Ohio just after the mountain closes to take delivery of the vehicle.
Our long term plan is to convert the 1992 E350 ambulance into a camper. We'll install running clear water, outdoor propane cooking, sleeping accommodations, and overhaul the interior. An RV needs to be a solid vehicle first, so we're testing the Campbulance with a road trip 2,700 miles across the country. How hard can it be?
It's not a total impulse purchase. We shopped around online, looking at the right mix of cost, quality, body style, and engine specs. The previous owner's maintenance history convinced us that the truck was a good bet (because buying any vehicle is a bet, honestly), and the engine and body style matched what we were looking for. The price was right, the timing was right, and we pulled the trigger.
