I see a few benefits as well as a few drawbacks. Hoping others can help enlighten what I am not seeing myself.
Pros:
More squared interior makes for easier constuction
Any windows wanted can be put where you want them
Available in a wider choice of drivetrains
More stealth
Easier to install roof items
Blank slate

Cons:
Its a box
No windows, have to install any wanted
No "cool" website/ forums to steel ideas
Not a schoolie

There is a good number of box truck conversions on these forums.

There are other forums out there but these are the ones I frequent. They have some clever solutions to common problems.

You should have a deeper look at those sites. They are all about the DIY.
