RVing is nothing to be frightend about. Being from Wisconsin you just put alot of thought into keeping the ducks inline.
A conversion truck camper is considerd a (CLASS C)RV. No worries about being rejected at campgrounds for being a TC.
This does not change the fact that your choice is not considerd a (CLASS A)coach. You would not be allowed in a (CLASS A ONLY) park.
Truck conversions utilize similar demensions as delivery vans. One reason you do not see extremely long delivery vans is they are hard to manuvere in thight spots. You must always consider left, right, radious, height and swing (in this case the rear overhang), when manuvering.
45' is not a problem but it could be with a conversion. First glance would make one think bigger is better. It is, if it bends in the middle. My choice would be to consider a shorter living area maxed out for comfort with a short storage/flat bed area to the rear. This would be only a few feet. I would tow a double hight trailer behind that, remembering to keep the total lenght as manageable as possible.
First thought is what is your objective for the unit you choose. By this I mean ocassional camping, full time living, following or a little different participating in race events.
In todays world remember weight means savings, something else to consider.
There are also the low profile MAXs. These are now a few years on the market and offer the best combo of everything accept the garage.
My feelings are the more information you glean the more confusing the whole thing gets. Set your limits high so you do not have to do it again. There are thousands of units availabe on the used and forclosure market but it is still important to make the correct decision.
