My boys converted ambulance. This thing has taken us to South Dakota, Colorado, Wyoming, and some local Midwest spots (from Chicago). 

Yes, converted to 4x4. Raised ceiling and solar panels.

..by the way those do got kind of a bad rep over here as electronics have so much reliability issues I've heard, many prefer the Mercedes for conversions - looking through this thread I haven't spotted any so far - are these on the road in the US as well?


You know like -

Not completely sure which type you're referring to, but if it's the small(er) Mercedes ones they're T2's (aka "Düdo's", as they have been built in Düsseldorf predominantly) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_T2


They're basically the car-equivalent of a work-horse, have been used as trucks in various forms, as ambulances, firetrucks, utility vehicles..


..and of course as police vans

Basically there are just a lot of them out there so you can get them (used, of course) for cheap.

They are popular because the engines are reliable even with a lot of miles on them, and you have a lot of option / can customise them very easily.


They come in a lot of different shapes, sizes an flavours..
