Wheelchair Berlingo as base for camper
#1
Seeing lots of ads for Berlingos that have been converted for wheelchair use. 

Is there any problem to buy one of these if I'm planning on using it for a camper? Presumably I can remove the wheelchair stuff and put a false floor over where the floor has been lowered?

Where does the spare go?

Any other problems I'm missing if I choose one of these?

I'll probably be using a boot jump of some kind

I had a 2013 ex wheelchair B9 that I used for camping. I removed the ramp, got a space-saver spare which fitted to the lowered floor & put a sheet of ply over the whole back. With the B9 version, the rear seats come out easily. Only thing that I missed over the M59 was that I didn't get a Modutop version with overhead storage.

Thanks! I'll have a look at a few more of them instead of ruling them out

Just be aware on some conversions the ramp can form part of the rear door. The tailgate is not altered but when the ramp is up it forms a seal against the tailgate, so it could cause problems if you were to remove it. This is mainly on conversions that have the shallow ramps and dont have an electric winch to pull the wheelchair in. Have a look at a few on the web for sale and you will get the general idea what I mean.
Are we there yet????? Huh

Yep, I have an ex-wheelchair Peugeot Expert which has the tailgate latch as part of the ramp, so when the ramp is lowered, the latch pivots down & under. The tailgate is completely standard though so what I did was cut the ramp off at floor level with an angle grinder.
