A book that's long overdue

I’m a maker. I’ve been making things with my hands my entire life.  From motorcycles, to off road vehicles, to homes, and much more. I’m also a teacher and love to share the skills I’ve learned along the way.  In July of 2020 I bought a used ambulance and the obsession began.  Since then, I’ve spent thousands of hours watching and reading EVERYTHING available about ambulances and RVs. At the same time, I’ve been doing a full conversion on the AmboRV project build.  My goal with this book is to help anyone, of any skill level, get the answers they are looking for and create their own ideal overland camper.  Target date for publishing is November of 2021.
