Nutty Idea / Dumb Question

Strayed off into a twisted train of thought and wondering if an 80's 454 and either TH400 / TH475 transmission from an RV could handle the weight of a larger skoolie. Engine in question is an RV application (I've heard these have a slightly different camshaft profile for more low-end torque) and the package I have in mind has around 65k original miles.

The trans is what I would be worried about. Kinda thinking the TH475 could, but not sure about the TH400. Anyone ever seen either of these in a skoolie other than cutaway van type? Thinking this could be a possible repower for a 366/427, or maybe even to possibly replace one of the more troublesome diesels (6.0 PS / VT365 for example)
