Converting an RV to museum on wheels

I am looking at a used 36-foot Ford V10 Tropi-Cal to convert into a Museum on Wheels "Historymobile" to display our local history at area schools and retirement homes. Anyone have experience doing this or know of one?

Welcome to the forum. I have no experience converting an RV to a museum on wheels, but I have been in a few RVs converted by vendors. In the past year, I have been in a class B that Cisco had set up for them as a mobile demo center and a class A that Promethean had outfitted as a mobile classroom. Both were new units with a generator and AC but no water, toilet, fridge or bed.

On converted RVs I've seen at various public events I've noticed they usually have a front and back door with the aisle offset to one side.
