This former ambulance is now a very impressive camper. OttoEx now sells rigs for an asking price of $84,995 and has a video showing what makes it special.
The vehicle started as a 2007 GMC 3500 4×4 with an ambulance conversion from the McCoy Miller company. It serves a small hospital in Wyoming and collects only 94,000 miles.
Power comes from a 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V8 engine that is driven through a six-speed Allison automatic transmission. The two-speed transfer case aids off-road capability.
OttoEx takes care of turning ambulances into motor homes. However, the person who bought it did not use the vehicle and sold it back to the company.
The exterior still looks like an ambulance except for the paint scheme. There are plenty of locking doors on the outside that offer access to things like water tanks, propane bottles, showers, and plenty of storage space.
Stepping inside, oak patterned vinyl planks cover the floor. A bench turned into a bed. At the request of the original owner, there is a hook at the back of the ceiling to attach the swing to enjoy a relaxing view from the back door. The kitchenette includes a two-burner hob, butcher’s table, sink and fridge. The backsplash consists of ceramic tiles.
OttoEx retained some of the original hooks of the ambulance when turning it into a motor home. The pieces are high quality and can be beaten.
Taxi in good condition. The control panels for all the lights and sirens are still on the center console. OttoEx notes that these things work, but it’s illegal to use them on the street.
While not seen in the video, there are roof-mounted solar panels that connect to a 40-amp charge controller. The vehicle also has a 100-amp-hour lithium-ion battery and a 140-amp smart battery isolator.
