New (to me) ambulance van to be converted

Found a 4x4 in Switzerland...
7.3 low miles
Just need to improve it
List is long already: RIP suspension, wheels, rear axle, lockers and camper layout...

Re: New van to be converted

So, you're going to have 4x4 camper vans on two continents?

Nice score.

Re: New van to be converted

Good news my friend! Do you already have it in your workshop in Switzerland? Is it empty or still with all the ambulance stuff in it?

Pschitt, stored it for 3 months down south, still an ambulance.
Getting it this we and will start a quick layout so that I can register it as a camper, full layout will be later.
