I thought about it but really want something more unique. I am a little concerned about park restrictions and what it will take to register/ insure. It's currently registered and street legal in CA.

I somehow can not imagine an RV park letting this thing in, a bit to mad max for them, and so many parks have a no more 10 year old policy that they pull out when needed.

National parks no idea .

I must say it would be really neat, and I do not go to campgrounds usually.

I think the real truth is, this is a build for someone who can do it all. Most shops have grease monkeys and maybe one or two real mechanics, and are too busy to even consider this. A shop that works on heavy earth moving equipment would be better equiped to handle it.

So... pony up and learn what you need and charge ahead for a really special project, or let it slide by as a neat dream. Personally I hope you do it. I love to see great projects built.

It would be cool to own, but I just can't think of how I'd actually use one aside from really REALLY expensive joyrides.

That is true. Prob wouldn't want to go that fast. I don't think I'd be taking it to parks much. I'm also looking into property as well. I like the skoolie camp network I saw on another thread. I'm almost ready to get it. $4500 isn't much of a loss if it doesn't happen. That's what he's selling it for. Basically the same as what he could get for scrap.

I'm just back at issue 1 though. Need a place I can work on it. Anyone have a yard big enough I could rent some space near Sacramento?

Eventually my goal is to live in it for retirement and go north for the summer and south for the winter between properties.

It be roughly 20 ft living space. Not sure exactly because I'd have to pull all the firefighting gear out first. Cab is about 10 ft and not sure how much the engine takes.
