Re: "gazillion"... we looked at a Winnebago Brave last weekend after being told it was the only RV on the market with a steel structural frame... after an hour drive and considering a $123k price tag... we learned the steel structural frame they bragged so much about only covers about 4 feet of the body... the driver and front seat passenger!
So Tango... you are right on!
Back to the skoolie route! Seems like the most fun anyway.
BTW, last year we bought a 1984, rotted out TT... gutted it, pulled the skins, reframed it, painted a giant Harry Potter (by request of the kids) lightning bolt on the side, pimped the inside (all in two 30hr weekends) and went on a memorable vacation. That was #GATEWAYDRUG ! So the Skoolie is getting a similar theme on the outside, but going more simple cherry-maple-iron-copper-leather on the inside.
