I am converting a 1999 Ford e350 7.3 box truck into my house, and have very little idea of what I'm doing. I joined rvforum.net  today to see what advice is available to me, but I also wanted to share my blog (link in sig line).

thanks!

Also check out CheapRVLiving.com. Almost everything they do on there is DIY focused for building your own.

Here's a URL for a construction blog using an all aluminum Grumman box van www.data-cut.com/guru liner.htm , he walks you through with pictures and text of his build. Pretty interesting. Kinda where I'm heading I think.

Hey,Lost in Space/Wade? I'm from P'cola, do you live close to there?  Starting a van conversion, not sure if I'm going with a gen. or batteries.

My farm is above Bonifay ('bout a 100 miles east of you) and I work in Tallahassee for Florida Department of Emergency Management, during the week come home on the weekends.  When I had a real job as an engineer one of my projects was the 4 landing of SR 87.  That's near you.
