What is an AMBO?

Like BMWs being called Bimmers and Chevrolets being called Chevys, AMBO has normally been an abbreviation for ambulance RV conversions.

But we would like everyone to consider expanding meaning. We think AMBO should be an acronym for any box-shaped DIY RV build or conversion:

  • A is for Ambulance conversions. Types I, II, III, and medium duty.
  • M is for military ambulances and other military based RV conversions.
  • B is for converted boxes. Moving trucks, step vans,  etc.
  • O is for other / obscure / overland (still boxy) DIY RVs.


Skoolies and Van Lifers have their communities. Ours is exclusively for DIY boxes!
