“Lance” fully converted ambulance

Location: South East England - Basingstoke
Swap Value: £10.000+


Hi and thanks for looking

Here’s Lance taken from the his origin Ambulance,

So I’m wanting to sell or swap as I’m wanting bigger over the last few years Iv been upgrading and time to get set and get bigger

So a bit about Lance he was converted professionally by the previous owner of 10years , I have all the receipts from a glue tube to panels to wires to sink etc two folders to be truthful :)

Was his family camper van and business idea -used to rent it out on weekly basis - I did to with my old camper prior to selling and getting Lance

Lance is an old ambulance yes he was fully in the NHS so it’s totally iconic

Based on a 2002(51) 2.4tdci durotorque Ford transit engine

Chain driven so no Cambelt

152,321 miles to date on the clock but through research it isn’t the original engine they have to take them out due to the speed they reach but this is done before they sell them so potentially it’s a whole lot lower mileage than this certainly drives like new

Twin wheels at rear

Before I say what’s in him i say what Iv done in the year Iv had him

I purchased him around June 2019
Straight away had him in for a major service -
Glow plugs-diesel filter- air filter-oil&filter - pollen filter - drive belt - coolant change -rocker cover gasket - water pump-thermostat
Receipts to prove
Mot - flew through best they had seen in long time for a Ford

Brakes checked and all ok
Just had - brand new diesel pump as it went on me so replaced that at a cost of £1200 just for the pump
Brand new radiator was old so as was having the pumped change had done same time as was off
New diesel filter 2nd one as new one with new pump

And a stage1 remap so no more struggles up hills even the best campers struggle due to the weight they carry

Happily sits at 75-80 mph if that’s how you drive -I’m a 65-70 fuel saver enjoying the view type

So that’s the engine side of things works a treat

Now for the insides

I say it’s 2 berth but it has 3 seats belts and I have taken 5 of us out 2 adults 3 kids 7-10-12

So here we go-

3 belted seats up front inc driver with arm pads for comfort

12v-230v-gas- fridge decent size and definitely keeps food cold not just chilled
On it’s own with a work top above

Gas 3 hob - (grill-oven -two switches )
Next to seating area with draw underneath

12v-mains-gas water heater - under seating area

Hot and cold water - sink-shower
Sink is average size with drain Board - glass cover -cupboards underneath

Shower -toilet -sink - shower is over 6ft in height same as the inside
Power shower mix taps hot and cold which is attached to the sink but pulls out to act as the shower tap - pump driven
Sink is corner built
Telford toilet with working flush
Shower room is a complete wet room with curtains

Diesel heater blower build in -does the job well - control panel on wall

The dining table seats 4 so plenty room
This doubles as The bed

The bed
Made at the rear for more space and besides the rear doors which open up

It’s full size double can even fit a child in with you

The main storage we use is above the cabin where the sirons would be however we have had a child sleep there more than once it has original doors on it to close up when traveling

Loads of original items to keep the iconic look
A side door and rear doors

It has full working fuse board , 2 leisure battery’s we charge up for a full day before a weekend away

Gas bottle has its own cupboard with gas switchboard so only have on what you require at time - hobs-fridge - heater- oven

Tv which works on digital aerial all included wall mounted-

4 12v sockets and 5 230v sockets
Inverter if needed

Fresh water tank 250l and waste water

Really needs be seen to understand the quality of build

So where have we been in it in such short ownership

Seven sisters white cliff
South sea
Portsdown hill
And the short one nights of Boredom
Tadley fields
Farnborough raf camp
Local country park for few nights
So yes we travel loads and plan more but we need something tad bigger as planing a 3 month vacation and not sure we can fit that many shoes and outfits in side

Though I’d we don’t sell by the time we plan to travel ie when boarders are open the we take Lance

Mot is still for a while
Full v5c in my name and address as of my drivers license
Is on a van insurance as that’s how the last owner kept it means we can drive on our work insurance as multiple vehicles

As you can see there is age marks and scratches but what do you exits 20 years old how ever I’m trying to find someone todo the corner bumper as would hat to sell like this was done previously as why Iv not done yet as hasn’t bothered me

Also comes with review camera

Central looking
6 great tyres
And possibly loads of fuel depending what’s left over from out next trip .

Looking for around £15k
What I’m after with swaps is if someone wants to down grade il give cash your way on one that’s around £25-35k
