From camper to cargo



When I converted an ambulance to a mini motorhome I made sure all the camping components were removable. The table and bed set up comes right out leaving plenty of room for cargo. The veggie van is not just for fun, it goes to work for me to.

Will all the camping gear removed an 8 foot picnic table slid right in. The van will be in cargo hauling mode for a bit as I've one and a quarter ton of woodstove fire blocks that need to be hauled home.

It's easy to clean up as ambulances are pretty much made to be hosed out. Don't think about that feature too much. It does make clean up easy for me.

Setting up for passengers with tables takes about 10 minutes. Setting up the bed takes maybe an additional 10 minutes. It's pretty simple but does the job.

    1. Yeah, but then the vehilce would be more for work than play -and we can't have that.

  2. That's a lot of fire blocks for someone who doesn't intend to stay for the winter! But then, I don't know anything about real winter, living on the Gulf Coast. Maybe that's just what you need to get you ready to move south? Glad things are so adaptable for you. Easy-peazy!

    1. It's not really that much. I've still got to heat until we leave in December. If I don't burn them all, they keep.

  3. Your ambulance-van is so cool, a lot of thought put into it. Trucks and vans sure are handy when you have to haul stuff.

    1. It's really nice to be able to haul things on stormy days and still keep things dry.

  4. You need a slide in bin so you can carry dirty, yucky stuff without messing up the interior of the van.
