the fact one of them hauled our 23 foot school bus out of deep sand at Lake Baikal effortlessly.
I'm guessing the box truck isn't going to be for off-road though--that's what the toys are for. I love to see your progress on the conversion.
No, the truck is an Isuzu 20 foot flatbed. The living unit camper will go on the flatbed just like a normal Lance type camper goes on a standard pickup truck, except our camper has a flat base (and thus more floor space without slides).
We won't really use it off-road, but I am going to put a 12,000 pound winch on the front and maybe replace the front bumper with some offroady looking brush guard. The Isuzu has a very tight turning radius for the length, so that will be nice.
Here is the truck:
