Osage Type II Ambulances

Type2Type II ambulances have a long wheelbase and are based around an integral cab design. They tend to be smaller in weight than Type I ambulances, which means that they get better fuel mileage. Differing from Type I ambulances which have an entirely new compartment dropped onto the chassis; Type II ambulances typically use the same frame of the vehicle but feature a raised roof instead. While the smaller size also limits the on-board capabilities of a Type 2 ambulance, these ambulances can be operated at a lower cost while still meeting all of the necessary needs of a transport.

Osage Ambulances produces one Type II ambulance, the Travois, which is available on three different chassis types: The Ford Econoline, the Mercedes Sprinter, and the Chevy Express.

Type 2 ambulances are ideal for those looking for an ambulance that is more likely to be used for transportation than emergency response, due to the improved fuel mileage and reduced operation costs.
