A MAN converted an old ambulance into a house on wheels and is now traveling around the world for practically nothing.
Ben Harris converted a 1995 Ford ambulance into his tiny dream home – complete with a king bed, shower, tiled kitchen and beer fridge.
The sworn adventurer takes his fans on a long journey, regularly sharing updates on his travels across North America and beyond in The Big Girl.
Together with his partner, they drive wherever they want in their converted 4×4 powered by solar energy and a 7.3 turbo engine.
“If you are planning a conversion, I would definitely recommend that you take a look at ambulances,” he advises on his topic Youtube channel.
“Not only are they incredibly well built, but they’re also affordable.”
All in all, the social media creator spent just £10,000 to buy the vehicle and completely convert it from a working ambulance to a well-appointed home.
The ambulance itself cost £7,000, which he says is more than usual given its “all-wheel drive and low mileage”.
But the whole conversion only cost Ben his time and £3,000.
Upon completion, he proudly took his followers on a tour of the tiny home that he generously designed.
He showed off his wood paneling, king-size bed and clever tricks that allowed him to fit a shower, tons of storage space and even a surfboard inside.
He added, “I’m pretty excited to hit the road and live off it for a while.”
On his popular Instagram account @adventure_ambohe recently joked, “The only ambulance I want to ride in the back of.”
Another time, he told his fans, “It’s a tiny home, but you have the biggest garden of all.”
Ben has already traveled to the wild expanses of Alaska and over the Rocky Mountains to Canada.
The trusty ambulance has been driven all over Montana, California and more recently to Mexico.
Over time, Ben has built a loyal following of fans who are dying to know what’s next for the man who lives in the ambulance.
In response to the van tourOne user said, “One of my favorite Van Talks I’ve ever seen.”
“Dude, I LOVE THIS! Great job making this old ambulance a home,” added another.
A third responded: “What an amazing transformation! I love the solid original construction of the vehicle. The perfect basis for an installation!”
Another wrote: “You really nailed that design perfectly. It is breathtakingly beautiful and functional. The cedar ceiling gives the facility a fantastic feel.”
