1990 International Toy Hauler Conversion

I am hoping to find some good ideas for the garage section of my BUS/Toy hauler. Which will be mostly used for snowmobiles, So the issues is with snowmobiles after a day of riding they will be loaded with snow and it needs to melt somewhere and I need to figure out how to keep he floor level with some sort of draining system and still keep it workable for ATV, dirt bike and ect. in the summer months any ideas or past project lie mine ??

same kind of floor i am currently working on for box truck. when i do bus conversion now, i always have the floor at the level of the wheel wells in a re bus by building 2nd floor at that level before raising roof. use it for storage and keeps floor warmer in winters.
what i am working on is raised floor with 2x3 channel framework, and hydraulic jacks each corner for leveling. i am still working on how to run the pump lines and also to close the valves when the floor is leveled either sideways or fr to back, etc.
manual crank jacks would work if the crank is outside...
and i suppose air bags could be used but floor may not be rigid when running around on it.

saw this one for sale and had to snap some pics, oh the possibilities! and looks like a good place to defrost a snowmobile??

My original plan involved a toy hauler bus with which I could use the garage to be a place for growing food, ie. mobile farm. But after more thought that's more living space than I'm willing to give up. We will still grow food on the bus, however the harvest will amount to no more than your standard medium sized plot. So, unfortunately, we won't be able to share as much.

WOW, Yea that the problem I'm having after looking at the space required to storage 4-6 sleds it does not leave much room for living This is a great idea is the back section a trailer or modified to the bus??? This with a smaller garage section on my BUYS would solve some loading issues !

This is it from what I got, but I can ask for more. Unless the owner shows up here and you can ask!

I'm far from an expert but looks to me like the frame was extended and the rear wheels moved back.
