ambulance for hauling bikes?

i've been looking for a better vehicle to haul 4 bikes to races. my current setup is dirt cheap and efficient for 3 bikes. i also have a truck and trailer setup that will easily haul 7-8 bikes. i am looking for something in the middle, creature comfort (i.e. i can sleep in it), ease of use and reliability.

i've looked at box trucks and step vans, box vans, etc.

then i came across this locally:
1998 chevy 6.5 turbo diesel, 4wd, auto trans, 65k miles, type 1 ambulance. this is on a ck3500 frame. $3000.00

i checked it out and seems like a decent vehicle, and i've already figured out how to get most of the stuff out of the back to make it fit 4 bikes (i would assume?)..


anyone run one of these as a bike hauler?

any titling issues in ohio for gvwr of 12000lb?

I have a sense that you aren't a squeamish sort of guy, but I know a guy that found a solid sheen of dried "fluids" under the floor of the ambulance he bought
65k seems low, but you know they were all WFO.

i don't have pics of the ambulance, but this is the exact same model.

in the back i can take the interior out on the driver side up to the front edge of the jump seat. - on the passanger side all of it comes out to the front of the box. i will stilll have the 2 external boxes in the front driver side.

it should fit 4 bikes i would think. - interior it's approx 7'6 wide inside by 11' long.
