What other DIY RV sites do you know of? (for trailers etc)

Does anyone here have any other links or forums or websites they would be able to share that are relevant to RV type conversions? There may be some useful crossover information, i'm specifically looking for other sites that cover specific RV conversion issues (for instance for trailers, anything from small units up to Class 8 big rig stuff as long as it's DIY) since I might find myself with some kind of combination (like a short bus and a converted car hauler) for more flexibility in the future.

Someone else pointed me to which covers medium duty through Class 8/semi tractor trailer, toterhome and toy hauler setups and has a forum on DIY conversions though I haven't scoured it too heavily yet.

Also i'll share a powertrain link possibly useful to the right person - - covers swapping the Cummins 4bt (the 4 cylender version of the 5.9L inline six in dodge pickups and alot of skoolies) into various vehicles.

What are yours?

There is NO OTHER Site For Buses than this. ALL the knowledge is here. All others suck.

But really, there are some other convertion sites. Bus converters has a pretty good site, and there are others. Google it out.

Here's a few you can get some ideas from:
www . mrsharkey . com/forum/
www . housetrucks . com/maindex.html
www . cheaprvliving . com/
autos . . com/group/VanDwellers/ (must join to view, but some good people & good ideas there)

You could try some marine application (boat) forums too, lots of great ideas that can cross over, especially for effective use of limited space.
