Question E 350 Shuttle adequate for conversion?

Hi all! My wife and I found what we think would be a good platform as a conversion but I am unsure of the weight capabilities.
2009 E350 Starcraft shuttle with passenger seat in cab.
Will this handle the load?

Hello and welcome,
I guess the payload of the E350 is around 4000 to 4500 lbs. Refrain from using 1000 lbs of batteries and a 120 gallons fresh water tank and you're good

That is what i’m basing my build on, gvwr is 10k. My bus with a full tank and my large self is Just under 7400 that gives me 2600lbs i doubt if my conversion, wife and family and all of our stuff will Equal 2000.

ABbus- Thanks for the boost of confidence!
Iím hoping to build as light as possible while focusing on strength of the critical structure.

Awesome!
Thank you! My sister lives up near Guerneville, maybe we’ll look you up when we’re in your area.
