2011 Chevrolet Van Conversion // Retired Ambulance Motorhome for Off-Grid Van Life
We are selling our tiny home on wheels. We bought this 2011 Chevrolet ex-ambulance in British Columbia and converted it into a completely off-grid motorhome in 2020.
We love a road trip and we'll drive anywhere to drop this off for you - serious buyers only.
**PLEASE READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE MESSAGING**

About 7 feet wide and 14 feet in length - if you are taller than 5’7” you will not be able to stand up straight in the van.
My wife is 5’3” and can stand on her toes, I’m 6’0” and have to bend my knees to stand. —
PLEASE READ: The Check Engine Light is perpetually on. This is due to a SLIGHT misfire, because of a valve burn, in the 4th cylinder. Brand new spark plugs were installed by a mechanic 4 months ago along with fuel injectors. Head work would be required to fix the misfire - quoted at $3,000 - but as per the mechanics recommendation, we have not done this work as the misfire is so slight that head work is not really required.
At this point in time, you can very occasionally feel the misfire when driving the van only in first gear.
In some of the photos, the paint chipping is not visible but please refer to the photos where it is visible to understand what the front exterior of the van currently looks like.
$28,000 USD OBO - open to negotiations but please be mindful that this is our home and unreasonable lowballs will be ignored
