Retired Firefighter Converts His Ambulance Into a 4×4 Campervan

‘Yabbity brabbity, man!’ Welcome to the most downhome — and arguably most poignant — ambulance conversion vid you’ve seen all year.

The guys at Down2Mob Overland give off a vibe you might call “down to earth.” Witness this clip, in which the YouTube channel’s stout, bearded content creator welcomes his “buddy, Happiest Trails,” who “mobs on up” with his converted 4×4 ambulance.

Watch the two rural men explore the existential underbelly of adventure vehicle building as the retired firefighter leads a rig walkthrough.

“I could sit here and build this interior for a year, out of carbon fiber [for instance], and just go crazy. But why? I wanna use the thing,” Down2Mob said. “All these different rigs? We all want to meet up and go to the same spots anyways!”

Later, the two burly builders simultaneously burst into the opening lines of Blink 182’s “All the Small Things.” I could go on and on. But in this case, the best way to experience it is to watch it yourself.
