This 4WD Ambulance Camper is Insane

I got the idea to build a 4WD ambulance after seeing a Unicat Terracross, but they were far too expensive. So, I did a lot of research on what would be a good donor vehicle to base my build off of.

Top 5 Budget Overland Rigs

Since this is a list of budget rigs, it should go without saying that most of them will have high mileage and a few years under their belts. Of course, as most of us already know, the simplicity of older vehicles means that almost anyone with a wrench and a good service manual can repair them -do yourself a favor and skip the Chilton’s manual. Instead opt for a factory service manual; these can usually be found on Ebay for a fair price. So, if you are the type who doesn’t mind some grime under your fingernails, then these rigs are perfect for you!
