    FOUND Vans For Sale!

    Yeah when you look at what other 4x4 vans are going for 18k is super reasonable. In fact, non Ambo 7.3 4x4s were going for more than 18k even before prices shot up in the last 12 months. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This thing is pretty cool. I didn’t see it posted yet so figure I’d share. Not mine. No affiliation. https://www.ebay.com/itm/KAISER-JEEP-/303879736330?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Insuring DIY Hardside Camper Build on chassis cab truck

    I'm not having a hard time. It's currently insured as just a truck. However, I know that insurance companies will often look for ways to not cover an incident so rather than have an issue then have them say "well you didn't tell us this was a camper". I'd rather get it insured as what it is, but...

    Insuring DIY Hardside Camper Build on chassis cab truck

    I think you are right. They wouldn’t insure my van in Florida and not my house in Michigan. But I don’t think I ever checked on the truck in MI. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Insuring DIY Hardside Camper Build on chassis cab truck

    I couldn't even get USAA to insure my regular truck. They don't like MI- the referred it out to Liberty Mutual.

    Ambulance Appraisal & Insurance Claim Help

    Looks like most of the items you have listed and are higher $$ are removable pretty easily (batteries and electrical.). Once they low ball you and only pay the van cost, just remove anything that they don’t account for. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Insuring DIY Hardside Camper Build on chassis cab truck

    Wondering those of you that made custom hardside campers on Chassis cabs, how you have them insured. I have a 1996 F350 Chassis cab ambulance. When I bought it, my DMV had no record of it being an ambulance, just an incomplete vehicle. They wouldn't even let me title it as a truck because it...

    1996 Ford F350 Powerstroke 4x4 Ambulance Build Thread

    It does have metal spring and mine also had some silicon sealant but once I got a hold of it, it came out relatively easily.

    1996 Ford F350 Powerstroke 4x4 Ambulance Build Thread

    Been a while since I have updated this but progress is slowly happening. After a lot of time going back and forth, I ultimately decided a full get and start from scratch was the route I wanted to go. But first I wanted to get this thing enjoyable to drive and mechanically sound. It had been...

    What is everyone's favorite solar, battery, controller combo these days?

    Yeah my only concern outside the cost with LifePO4 is they seem more fragile (and the expense to replace amplifies this). Like don't you have to worry about them freezing and such? As far as longevity, that makes sense, but I don't know if I will keep this rig longer than a couple/few years...

    What is everyone's favorite solar, battery, controller combo these days?

    I'm getting to the point where I am going to be ordering my electrical components for my ambulance build. My last build (a ram promaster) I went almost all renogy with 2x 100W panels, a rover 40amp controller, a 20amp DC to DC charger and 2 cheap 6v golf cart batteries. I switched to the...

    Suggestions for robust gutter mounts for self built roof rack?

    I'm looking to build my own roof rack for my ambulance. Probably out of 8020. When I did this on my van build, I used unistrut that bolted to the van specific adapters. For the ambo, it's got gutters so I'd like to just mount to those vs drill holes in the roof for stuff like solar and...
