History: This ambulance was acquired from a small local hospital in the area. The hospital purchased the van from Ford and had it sent to Leader for the conversion process into an Ambulance. A 4WD package was then installed by https://whitefeather4x4conversions.com/ and it was used as a fleet vehicle and was very well maintained. I bought the van 2 years ago to utilize it as a tow vehicle for our Airstream. We no longer need it as a tow vehicle so I converted it into an adventure camper.

Exterior: This vehicle comes with fully operational emergency exterior flood lights on the driver/passenger/rear, High intensity flashers, Sirens and the Exterior Loudspeaker!
-New ceramic headlight housings and relays for brighter 80/100w Hella headlights.
-New Hella fog lights
-New front windshield
-Rear view camera
-Aluminum ladder for roof access
-Sliding window with screen installed on passenger rear
-Port hole window installed on driver side
-Curt Hitch with 2" receiver with dual style plugs and tow package
-New Rockymounts bike rack http://rockymounts.com/products/monorail-2-.html
-OVS Nomadic 180 degree awning https://nomadicsupply.com/overland-v...ng-180-degree/
-Tires and spare have plenty of tread (75%)

Engine: 7.3L Turbo Super with 176,600 miles.
-New UVCH wire harness installed 3 months ago
-Hydra Performance Chip by Power Hungry Performance https://gopowerhungry.com/hydra-chip/
-Dual alternator package
-Block heater
-Replaced starter with new gear reduction unit
-Updated Stancor (White Rodgers) Glow Plug Relay
-Replaced 4" Up Pipes
-Replaced Camshaft Position Switch
-New seals for HPOP

Front Cab: The interior has been returned to stock but still retains all overhead Leader Ambulance components.
-Air conditioning has been serviced and blows cold
-Pioneer Touch Screen Receiver https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/P...EX/DMH-2600NEX
-Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller https://www.tekonsha.com/product/901...l-proportional
-Power Windows and Locks
-Cruise Control
-Extended Power Mirrors for towing

House Battery Setup: The 300 amp hour house battery setup consists of 3 new Renogy 100ah AGM batteries tied into a Blue Seas ACR, battery meter and fuse panel.
-Blue Seas ACR https://www.bluesea.com/products/762..._-_12V_DC_500A

The system is also tied into the Vanner Power Inverter/Charging System and there are three outlets that can be used to run 120v appliances/laptops, etc.
https://vanner.com/qr-20-1050cul/
There are also 2 exterior shore power outlets that can be used when available to run the Inverter/Charger, Block heater and a separate outlet that could be used for aftermarket applications.

Rear Interior: The rear compartment was converted into a camper with new floors, a new custom mattress with foam topper and plenty of storage in the re-purposed ambulance cabinets.
The rear "paramedic desk" was converted into a kitchenette with and overhead light, stainless steel sink and running water from a electric Shurflo pump and a 10 gallon water supply.
-A 10 speed MaxxFan Deluxe with remote was installed overhead and works well to cool the cabin. https://www.maxxair.com/products/fan...uxe-00-07500K/
-Overhead LED cabin lights
-LED reading lights with charging ports
-2 USB charging stations
-Cigarette Lighter charging port (which we used to power our ARB Freezer/Cooler
-The large drawer under the "Paramedic Jump Seat" was left as storage but if desired it would be an excellent location for a composting toilet.
-We also didn't install a permanent 12v fridge because in our experience we often wanted to take our ARB cooler with us outside or to alternate camping setups. There is a tall cabinet that would be able to house a TF65 Truck Fridge if that's the route you wanted to take.

I'll upload a video that goes a little more in depth to each system as well as some more photos on the next post.

Thanks,

With the 7.3 motor,a 2" tow hitch and rear "Helper Leaf Springs" we were able to take our 34' Airstream up into the Cascades and Mt Hood area of the PNW with no problems.

With front locking hubs and 4WD High and Low, navigating the High Sierras is not an issue.

Great post. Appreciate the video. Can you give me the interior height? Are there more than 2 seat belts, and if so, where are they located? Thanks

Thanks Mtnbnd!

The interior floor to ceiling height is 64"
The mattress topper to ceiling is 42"

Both captain seats in the front have seat belts. And there is also a "Paramedic Jump Seat" in the back that has a seat belt as well.

Here are two pics of the jumpseat in the back. And there is a lap belt at the base, but hard to see in the photo.

I was contemplating re-purposing the large drawer underneath into a composting toilet.. but some folks don't like to poop in their rig so I figure I'd leave that up to the buyer.

If someone is interested in the van but would like some customization (composting toilet, diesel heater, camping package with leveling blocks/table and chairs, etc.) I could put something together.

Let me know!

UPDATE:

With winter at our door step I decided to drop in a diesel heater to make this rig a 4 season vehicle.

Diesel Heater High Altitude Edition:
A 5k Diesel Heater has been installed which is fed directly from the onboard diesel fuel tank. No need to fill up messy containers or worry about running out. This is the 5k Pro Max Alpine model which auto compensates up to 18,000ft. and comes with a programmable LCD controller.

I also added some fun led lights with remote for some mood lighting in the back.
