    hi guys i’m disabled and use a mobility scooter so thinking of getting a ambulance like :-

    Volkswagen Crafter 2.5TDi

    IVECO DAILY 50C18 3.0HPI

    MERCEDES SPRINTER 416 2.7

    the pros that i can see are their under £5000, they have been serviced every three months, they have all the electrics sorted inside, they have a heater, loads of cupboards, parking Sensors, power steering, air con, lighting sorted, so no having to fit out much and most important a ramp and steps….. sooooooo what i want to know is what are the cons of the above vehicle

    thanks guys mrvanman xxxxxxx

    MERCEDES SPRINTER 416 2.7 and IVECO DAILY 50C18 3.0HPI could be good choices.

    Some of the cons are that they often have 24v electrics, which are not useful for a campervan, but this can be changed fairly easily.
    Ambulances often have specialist components such as different suspension, which can be costly to fix.
    Also ensure you have the appropriate license to drive a heavier vehicle. A 416 Sprinter needs a pre 1997 UK license to drive it.
