 As it turns out, we were right - it wasn't right 1st time. It worked, but not perfectly, some bits were fine and some bits sucked the spicy sausage. But that's OK because we can easily change it, [[..:​cc2:​start|Mk2]] will be new, improved, better, faster, stronger, more chocolatey and leaving no sticky residue! As it turns out, we were right - it wasn't right 1st time.

-**You may wonder** as you read through (//or skim through looking at the pretty pictures//) why we have seemingly ignored so many simple and common solutions to camper conversions. The answer is **to preserve the vehicle** and to avoid making irreversible changes where possible.

-The ambulance has a bit of character & history (compared with the average 3rd-hand white Ford Transit), and the bodywork would not be easy to repair/​restore if we cut a hole in it and then changed our minds, so we're trying to avoid making too many changes that can't be easily reversed. Unfortunately this does limit a lot of the easy & obvious solutions to problems of camper conversion - to put it another way, we're trying to avoid making any more holes in anything! 
- 
-There are many camper-things that require cutting **big** holes in the sides, roof, or floor of the vehicle, and for now we're really not keen to do that sort of thing. That does make fridges, toilets, heating, ventilation and plumbing more of a challenge and hopefully explains some of the slightly odd approaches we've taken. Much like getting a spider-web tattoo over your face, you've got to be sure you really want it because once it's done there'​s no easy way back! 
- 
-We made a few layout decisions which sacrifice ease-of-construction for improved camping experience. A bit of extra hassle can pay off in the long run.
