Their $12K Simple Ambulance Conversion


They weren’t looking for an ambulance when they decided to transition from backpacking to vanlife, but it’s what popped up in their budget — and they made it into an awesome home for two digital nomads.

Because of the extra width (compared to a Sprinter), they were able to comfortably fit a stationary full-sized bed. Raychel has no problems standing in the van, but with a 5’8″ clearance, Nick has to crouch a bit. They both agree their tiny sink is the worst part of the build. Enjoy the tour!

    nicely done- unfortunately at about 6 mpg, it may be getting pretty costly to travel.

    great for stationary use though………
