New guy here , thinking of doing a 7.5 box truck to camper , total budget of around £6k , intend fitting wood burner , shower room /toilet , may fit mains elec and LPG , will have to get a couple of mates to help with that , otherwise I`ll do the rest myself .
Your advice is welcome , main things I could do with help are as follows :
What truck is best ?
What body length is best ?
Best thing to do with tail lifts ? ie bin them and panel it in ?
Most cost effective window?
Best way for side doors?
Whats the deal with getting the truck registered as a camper?

Hi, im a new member on here. im currently toying with the idea of converting one of many demountable lorry bodies i have. I still use the truck for my haulage business. The box is 25foot long and 10foot high and can stand on legs. Then at the weekend i can hook into the body (fitted as camper) and go enjoy ourselves. Anyone else done similar? or offer advise? Thanks in advance.
They have made a tidy looking job of that.
(although I don't think sitting a woodburner onto 5 bar ali' tread plate, which in turn looks to be sat over OSB, is the best of ideas!?).
..as nice as it it, I can imagine that using something of that size in the UK could/would be a b*ll ache, until you'd sussed out a network of sites/"locations" where you could stop without pishing off the locals.
Imagine ringing up the Caravan Club to book a pitch..."..err no..I won't be requiring an awning pitch as such..."
