Moved into a CONVERTED AMBULANCE to TRAVEL the World



this episode is brought to you by Squarespace if you need a domain website or online store make it with Squarespace my name is Carl I'm Madison and this is our ambulance camper aka the Capulets so prior to by the ambulance I was on the road camping out camp Trent which is my brother he does I was traveling with them and their camper just tent lifing it and on the road I've just meet a lot of people living out of their vans or trucks that was a lifestyle that really resonated with me so I started saving for the Hat for about two years never really considered getting an ambulance found this guy on Craigslist it really just had everything I was looking for as far as a great DJ and a great solid build when he first told me about it I thought it was a joke tiny cabin we looked into a yurt for summer I think we're accustomed to living in small spaces together really made the transition pretty easy it wasn't like we went from a big house to a super small space you know I've been doing it out of a tent for the last two years so this is like a luxury upgrade for my lifestyle so this is it this is our ambulance camper aka the Campion's it is a 1997 chevrolet k 3500 four-wheel drive diesel engine and it weighs about six tons with all of our stuff in a so it's pretty heavy and if you can feel that driving around turns to going up hills but is super reliable average around 12 to 13 miles per gallon it does have two tanks if you want to check out the front here the first feature are the sirens it still can't attack for the siren speakers and a PA system so that's what's coming off here on a super heavy-duty bumper on the front half here is painted with this stuff called monster liner which is pretty much a homemade line-x kit and it's supposed to just be chip resistant and scratch resistant all that so I really want to do that to the entire ambulance moving up front here pretty standard cab just a two-seater but the best thing I like about the ambulance is the outside storage well the storage overall but there's a lot of closets around the outside where we keep our big gear and pretty much our long-term storage anything that's immediate we keep on the inside this one we keep an inflatable boat some climbing gear our backpack our second closet here is our tools pretty much everything we need for building or adding stuff to the ambi or doing car maintenance probably use the air compressor the most I the biggest tool year just for filling up on tires we also have trash access here as well it's dropped in through the main cab that's our pup already by the way moving back here's a third closet this is where we keep our water systems so this one here when you see inside is pump to our sink that's six gallons this one here is seven gallons of fresh drinking water other things we keep in here is a spare tire a little bit of extra gas oil pants when we do all that yeah these two back doors are usually open when we're at camp but it just gives you a nice look into the inside and this just provides a lot of light and a good area to chill our cooler here so this is mainly how it is as long as the weather permits us to to keep it open another closet here is just our tallest posit where we keep our skis in this red bag our fishing pole is always ready to go right here we have some leather and suede crafts for making and selling art on the road another closet just general camping gear tents backpacking stuff pretty much anything we use for outdoor living is kept in here we got a window which you don't see too often on modern day ambulances I'm not sure why that is but that comes in clutch when we're sleeping you can access our closet which which you'll see from the inside but you can get it from the outside as well and then under here is just the two batteries for the truck that charge is as we run and we can plug into that when we can't for probably two or three days a couple hours each day but the eventual project is to put solar on the roof so we can run those systems without draining the car batteries we do use these floodlights pretty frequently just when we pull in the camp and help getting set up we don't use the center one you can tell it's ripped out by trees on the drive on the Forest Service really welcome to the inside of the camp Elin come on there's here we've got our closet which is really accessible and nice and packed with all of our stuff we've got one section for Caro and section for me and we share the shoes we share a lot of clothes too just to make it work all of these cabinets that you see in here came with the ambulance originally even this red leather upholstery but you see throughout the Caviar's right here we've got this awesome chairs and it was already in pretty comfy and there's a pass-through cab right here we've got all of our utensils here Carl kind of shows you the outside but on the inside this is how our garbage system works so we have a waste circle here and we can just throw our waste recycling down in there this white panel was also in the ambulance already suction exhaust fan and all the Lighting's that's in here whenever it's nice and it's not raining we're definitely outside doing all the cooking and this is a nice setup for the stove if we are inside and it is raining in this cabinet right here we've got all of our dishes and our cookware and we keep that all stored together right there this is a hand-pump sink so it works like that down here this is our toiletries we have hand towels creams all that soap essential oil magic you've got extra storage for sleeping bags towels some fabrics that lives there and this one here is my art cabinet so those are my vintage suitcases for art supplies all right and last but not least this is where our drinking water is so we have it facedown right now so you can easily fill up anything here it sits upright as we're driving this is our say to cool also couch to the outside and also our fridge three and one so we've got all of our goodies in there keeps it nice and cold we have a dry bag that we use for our ice and that keeps everything fresh and all the water and whatnot out of this situation it's a bug screen so it rolls all the way down to the floor if needed over here it's just more cabinets this one is kind of our library our office miscellaneous storage they have all these plastic inserts in every single cabinet so you can move those around to really lock things in there which is super cluttering or driving down these bumpy roads same thing over here just kind of more open miscellaneous space we have our ukulele here doesn't see much time yet but it will and then the all-star of the inside which we haven't pointed out yet is this bar right here but you just kind of hang off and hang stuff on it work out stretch so I recommend a bar like that in all vehicles blasts major feature back here which we recently updated within the month is this bed and then we have these four legs which is our system for now three two one each leg has a spot cuz this floor and here is a little bit uneven so each one needs to be cut a little differently but whatever its day in life and be life this is how to hit so first step we just fold it up has a rubber undercoat here just to hold the futon when it's in place well otherwise it just folds out each leg has a number to a specific spot we find that's been working there we go we also stain this frame and pretty much all that other wood we put in here to a red mahogany just to kind of make you feel more like your cabin but slowly working on Adam or woman wait wait so when we're done we just slide it this way roll out some sheets you know throw the pillows back on and the best feature about this bed is a you can just open these doors right here and just kind of be wherever you're at but another great feature is this window like we talked about earlier really it's great just to wake up to wherever you're parking next to you and this is the inside of the ambulance hopefully you've never seen one before because I never saw him before – I bought it sure yeah it's a good sign you're living in the ambulance and not yet picked up by one [Laughter] the quick research I can recommend if you're going this route is check government auction websites or call local counties just kind of see what's being retired don't be so serious you like to be in the moment we talked about that up there try not to reject too much about what's in the future what's to come or getting stressed out about the things that we can't control at the time well my message would just be to travel and just be open to stepping outside of your comfort comfort zone normal life maybe be open to change and open to trusting the kindness of people spread love and every day we try to be thanks for watching oh one last thing to this I don't know what it used to be used for but this is just a safe for our Bibles and now you know where it is you finally amber you don't steal that but I hope you guys enjoyed this week's episode if you did be sure to LIKE comment and subscribe and check us out we're at cam Tran Ron Instagram or

    Remove all cabinets put it under your bed then put shower/toiler room there and that one big storage in the left put big customized water galon in there and on the right storagr is for dirty water galon

    Oh damn it made me mad dammit

    My husband and I have nearly the same model and we LOVE IT!! We were looking at the fancy Mercedes RVs for almost $100,000 to travel in. Why? For $12,500 on Craigslist we have an amazing travel vehicle with incredible storage. Yes, every time we stop for gas people ask about it. While some people have done major renovation to their ambulances, we have hardly done a thing except convert the bench into a bed. It's perfect and easy to clean, with quality materials inside and out.

    I build ambulances for a living and this is a good way to keep these hero machines working. By the way, that safe was to keep the hard drugs from being stolen. ?

    I love their home and the beauty they gave to it. I am always curious to see what others say about it in your videos and I'm very unhappy with everyone having negative comments about the mans hair. He may be prepping his hair to be ready for dreads, maybe he just has an oily head, but when it comes down to it, let the man do what he wants to with his own hair. This world and life isn't about negativity and judging people. We all need to be one together and support one another in lifes journey. Help one another to see more and be happy on this planet earth we live on. We only get one life, and it should be lived and enjoyed however that person chooses to live it. Peace,love and happiness to you all! ✌??
