    How to Buy an Ex-Ambulance

    I like this idea a lot. My own ideas lead me to get a 5 ton military flat bed on which I put a 16 foot cargo container for storage like a cool giant walk-in closet. Behind that I've connected a 40' low heavy flatbed missile transport trailer that supports up to 20 tons. A 5kW diesel generator on the back powering a converted 30' cargo container with windows and fold out porch and awning. It's every bit as nice as our older Dutchman trailer but the ride is not as nice as my pickup and the full ready to go rig gets about 2-4 mpg with a max speed of 50 mph flat out or 8-15mph over steeper passes. On the plus side, with 10 wheel drive it goes anywhere anytime especially on hunting and fishing trips in remote locations.......or for the Zombie Apocolypse?....

    Clearly you miss sarcasm. Please read my comment again in which I agree exactly with you. My comment suggests that this is a project for the adventurist. It is chic winnabego for the Cadillac of road tents.

    How to Buy an Ex-Ambulance

    really? You're deny yourself a camper that stores the whole house, easily converts to cooking/fridge/etc and rides like a Cadillac all because of a few dbs? Go find a $60,000 comparable Mercedes converts-van and try to avoid all the places where fatal accidents have happened on the roads you drive on....(not as uncommon as you might think!) the highway we take into town (35 miles) sustains about 8 per year. I've not yet been flagged down by a frantic ghost looking for directions.I respect everyone's beliefs. But this is clearly written for the adventurous at heart, the risk takers and those with spare time to travel.
