Funny homebuilt RVs

I live in the redneck South. A few of the people I know are really into converting what is available into an RV. One guy I know took an old bread delivery truck, kind of like an extended UPS truck, and made an RV out of it. Called it a bread-a-bega. Complete with kitchenette and bath.

Another bought older Trailways buses and converted them to motorhomes. He actually did a good job with these and sold a couple.

The worst was a guy who bought an old hearse, cut the back off the body, then stuck a camper designed for a pickup truck on the back. This was a make do with what you got type of guy. I road in it once. A rolling deathtrap . I suspect most campgrounds had some type of code against this type of conversion.

There was a company (out of Indiana, I think) back in the '60's that took Cadillac ambulances/hearses and added "C" class type bodies to them. The ones I remember looked pretty professional.
Used to own an old hearse. The rear part was basically 3/4 ton truck.
