Ambulance Camper

I messed up on yesterday’s post on the Box Truck Van as my write-up didn’t show.  So if you viewed a single small photo of the box truck then revisit the post for an additional photo and some words of explanation.  

There was a very nicely done ambulance camper in the parking lot of the grocery store.  Unfortunately he was just leaving and my arms were loaded down with plastic bags full of grocery items and I couldn’t get a photo.  So these pictures I pulled off the internet to give you an idea.

Retired ambulances are much less to be had out there than U-Haul trucks and the like.  Ambulances are built to much higher standards and have extra heavy duty construction so they are a prized unit for the do it yourself camper builder.

They come already equipped with lots of cabinets, storage compartments and cubby holes.  Just look at how nice the inside of this one was fitted out.

Some people might be freaked out with living in something that once witnessed so much blood, tragedy and death.  Would it bother you?

Do people keep the ambulance identification on the outside? Couldn't it be mistaken for a real ambulance? Does it still have a siren for use in traffic jams??????

Would it bother me? Well, if blood and pain kept me from sleeping well, then I'd not be able to sleep in my own bed LOL...seriously, tho, no, I don't think it would bother me. I'd most likely keep in mind all the salvations that occurred in that ambulance (yeah, I've had a few rides in my day, and the EMS crews saved my life a couple of those times!) This vehicle surely has a lovely setup. Seems quite spacious in fact.

No by law just like school buses all the wording must be removed before sale. Not sure about lights and siren though. You just wouldn’t want to be caught using them for sure.
