Dwayne, we have a lot of box trucks at my work, and I was sondering what it would be like to convert one. Are you going to connect the cab so you can access the living space from the drivers area?
I agree with the last poster that most places will take you $$ as long its good. There are some "resorts" that only accept class A motor homes or ones that have an age limit on what rigs they aill allow, but they are few and far between.
It is pretty hard to connect the cab. I had built my house using insulated concrete forms (ICF). This is 2" of foam, 6" of concrete, 2" of foam. Have plenty of scrap to use up. If you take the expanding foam it makes it stick easy. What I am going to do is just build a frame out of 2 x 4, using regular outside doors. Picked up some windows from an RV being scrapped. Install holding tanks below, just have them stick the pipes up 12" into the unit. Then build a box around them with a toilet and shower. Lots of room to install any pipes needed. It is a 24' box, going to just build a back wall with another outside door 21' back, giving me a 3' porch. Has a slide up door.
I consider it to be a "poor man rv", but the truck only cost me $2300, then another $1500 in parts.
