I thought of selling my ambo a few months ago but pulled the add as I was about to travel overseas and decided I'd do a bunch of upgrades before selling her. Now is still not the best time with that dirty virus but she's just about ready to go so I'm listing her and will see how it turns out. I even lowered my initial price by a big chunk and just finished a whole bunch of engine upgrades (engine pulled out & serviced/upgraded) and she runs amazing! I'll try to list as much information as possible but feel free to ask if you need further details. (The current setup is with the 32" LED lightbar and not the two orange HID lights on the front bumper).

The interior height depending on the configuration varies from 69" to 81".

I get around 14mpg and for solar I've been using a Renogy "suitcase" that connects directly on the outside wall. That way I can park in the shade while the panels give me a good 5ah in full sun.

I dug through your build thread and never saw you mention this - was there anything special done to swap from DRW to SRW? Did agile do it when they did the 4x4 conversion? One of the things that's kept me wary of ambos are the DRW and the like $5-$10k price tag I always hear of going to SRW with the larger weight spec tires all around. It looks like you were able to keep stock size tires though?

I did the swap to a Sterling 10.5 but could have kept the Dana 70 with a 1" spacer. Brakes on old axle were shot plus other issues.

I bought the highest weight rated wheels and 35" tires. Has never been an issue. Current tires are 3860lbs, well within specs.

I've seen it, been in it, winter/summer camped with it, and if I didn't own a Delica I would buy it! Whoever takes this is getting a solid rig.

Thanks Joe, looking forward to more camping soon!

BTW, I realized I neglected to add the bed sizes....

Lower bed is 48"x72 and can stretch to 78" long.

Upper bed is 53"x84" long with room to spare (extra 2" min. all around).

Cheers!

I've been ask on the interior height with the popup down. Simple enough question but loaded answer! :)

The tallest it gets with the roof down is 81" if you remove the bed platform. I often do this if I don't plan to sleep up there. 1/2 of the popup ceiling lowers down at the back and there the full height is 75" (if you look at picture #11 in my add you'll see what I mean).

With the bed platform fully in place it is 69" tall but I usually stack the bed platform to the front end and still get 75" in the stove/fridge area.

The original height was 66"

The lowest point is above the dinette (and bed) where the floor is raised by 6" for the HD rear drawer underneath so if you'd stand there you'd only get 60"

Hope this helps!

Cheers
