A nice story in Metro in which Mark Bonito from Surrey talks about how and why he renovated an ambulance (bought at auction for £5,000, plus £2,000 refurbishment). Here's a snippet:
"I work from the van remotely which is really comfortable. I did all the electrics, heating and internet making it a really lovely space for me to live in. My kids love it too. We have a real passion for cooking, and have our own blog where we share recipes that can be easily cooked in vans whilst on the road. Being part of the van life community is amazing because your not tied down and you can visit the most beautiful places without leaving your home."
