Cool... I was torn between front and rear for the tv mount. Looks great there.

Re: Flagstaff - E350 Crestline New Era - Camper / Mobile Office

Costco has directional cell boosters that work very well. The directional antenna could be replaced with a multi-directional one. I’ve found cell and wifi reception to be much better with the phone/receiver in the cab in the front. I’ve also found wifi routers that have long range are able to reach ...

Re: Pros and Cons

Another pro vote. With a 7.3 I’ve had very reasonable maintenance costs over the 5 years we’ve owned it. Economy is comparable to a pickup even though its 9k+ lbs.

I’d not touch a 6.0... if anything breaks it’d break the bank.

Re: Medium Duty Pros/Cons..care to share?

These 12/24v look like a great option if you’ve got enough Realestate for 1200+ watts of solar. I’d not want to run them off batteries for long, but once the sun goes down, so would the cooling requirements.

Re: Picking the right Ambulance..Advice needed

Overall they are built like tanks. However, Some are built better than others. Crestline are built by paramedics for paramedics. Many others are well built.

Evaluate what you need and shop for the rig that’ll meet them.
