Thanks for the help.
You should be able to get the info from your local D.M.V.
Generally there is no rules on what cannot be done. The D.M.V. or D.O.T. or some one? do not regulate R.V. bodies or construction only their chassis and dimensions.
You are only limited by what you can fit in a traffic lane and your imagination!
There are a few rules, although i don't remember them. The only one I can remember is that you cannot have propane tanks secured to your rear bumper.
In Manitoba this is what you MUST have to register your vehicle as an R.V.
means a motor vehicle that
(a) is designed and constructed as an integral unit to provide permanent living accommodation,
(b) is equipped with one or more beds and
(i) a stove or refrigerator, or
(ii) washing and toilet facilities, and
(c) is designed so that there is direct access from the living quarters to the driver's seat;
Designed does not mean from factory, it means designed at SOME point, or that's what I was told! :P
