I thought they might make a good towed, but the fuel mileage isn't that good.

Wow, 30 pictures of options! What's standard?

I have often thought it would be an interesting project. A lot of thought would need to be put into design and material to keep the weight in check. It would be easy to get carried away and exceed chasis limits.

And it woud be an RV for a select market. But a fun thing to do.

And it wouldn't be a Truck Conversion. Maybe this thread could be moved to the correct forum section?
MN is home for now.

I like these little vans. I would like to customize one as a daily driver when I'm not commuting so far. Nice space for dogs!
