Ambulance Information Requested
What is your preference for ambulance style? Type 1,2,or 3? Why? How about the new "Sprinter"? And, how about cost - what are you using, and what did it actually cost?
I realize that equipment levels (and intended uses) vary widely . . . just looking for some general information here. Thanks.

I have worked in all but the Sprinters.
Type I - Must spec chassis large enough (f-450/550) or will be overweight. Easy maint.
Type II - Good for convalescence (sp). But for busy service or rural where hauling two critical pts is not practical. Hard access for maint. Isnt as safe in front end collision.
Type III - Same as Type I as far as chassis size. Same as Type II for maint concerns and safety in collision.
Medium Duty - This is the ticket. This is what my department uses. Now use FL-60. Last ones were in the neighborhood of $150k. Easy maint. Long duty life. Safe, lots of storage. Our last Navistars got 250-300k miles and 30-40k between brake jobs. New FL's have exhaust brakes so brake life should easily be 50k+.
