    5 ton expando vs. extra long wheelbase cargo.

    There is a difference between off road camping and living out of your rig long term. The extra space goes a long way.

    5 ton expando vs. extra long wheelbase cargo.

    Also, thanks for the link to that project, it's almost exactly what I plan on doing, only difference is popouts (hopefully).

    5 ton expando vs. extra long wheelbase cargo.

    Yea I got that once I started digging into what you used for a parts vehicle, judging by the quote you probably read my response before I figured out what was in a 915. I will give serious consideration to going this route, as I am no stranger to turning wrenches. Any specific reason you...

    5 ton expando vs. extra long wheelbase cargo.

    Nope, I don't know much about large diesel engines other than what I can read. I am assuming I would need to buy a big cam as what I had read on the NHC250 is that they are *not* easily convertible to big cam engines and most people recommended just buying a used one and refurbish because unless...

They are road legal trucks no different than anything else on the road in their weight class. Second, a commercial camper isn't going...

    5 ton expando vs. extra long wheelbase cargo.

    900 series. Specifically the CTA refresh just before they swapped to the FMTV. I don't like the FMTV C7 engines, and the NHC 250 is a bit of a slug.

    5 ton expando vs. extra long wheelbase cargo.

    Looking to build a Class A style offroad R.V. when I sell my house for full time living in. Anyone know the functional difference in length between an expando and a xlong cargo 5 ton frame? They are both listed as being on the xlong frame, but the cargo looks longer behind the rear wheels and...
