If you are looking for an ambulance campervan / RV conversion, you have come to the right place. This vehicle has a thorough mechanical stamp of approval. The RV conversion is complete and ready to live in or upgrade to your preferences.
Currently registered and classified by the State of California as a Recreational Vehicle and insured by Progressive insurance
The engine is mechanically sound in excellent condition. It just completed a $14,000 engine Bulletproofing job, which means you can reasonably expect the engine to run very well for another 200,000+ miles with basic maintenance. Most 6.0L super duty diesel engines will eventually need Bulletproofing to last the full 400,000-500,000 miles on these engines. Bulletproofing means the engine was completely removed from the vehicle, and all parts that are likely to fail during the life of the vehicle were removed and replaced with warranty-protected parts. All mechanic paperwork for the bulletproofing job is provided. You can read more about Bulletproofing here, or call your local diesel mechanic https://bulletproofdiesel.com/pages/what-does-bullet-proof-mean
All 6 tires are brand new, under warranty (warranty info/ paperwork provided)
Two brand new ultra high performance engine cranking batteries: Optima Yellow Top deep cycle lead acid 75Ah batteries with 900 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA). Good for high power use (like leaving the floodlights on a long time with engine off) and starting in super cold conditions.
The brakes and rotors have been inspected and are in good working condition at about 75%. The mechanic said it’s not time for a brake job yet but maybe in 25-50k miles.
This vehicle spent its life in Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois, and southern California with little to no exposure to snow or salt. There is very minimal rust underneath the vehicle. There are no exhaust leaks or structural rust damage.
Powerful air conditioner for front cabin area.
Battery disconnect switch for engine cranking batteries installed and accessible from driver seat.
11-15 miles per gallon
