Kyle,

The Scenic is interesting but I'm quite sure Luvrbus was correct, it was an Eagle in the BCM some years ago.

Looks like a waste of a lot of living area.

I wasn't challenging Clifford's statement, but I was replying to BK's reference to a corvette -which was why I started the post with "BK".   ;)

I'm quite sure both can be correct.  :o

I'm also sure that there have been several done that way, just not many here in the states. . . .

There is this guy I know down in Texas that is mounting a Scenicruiser body on the frame of a Freightliner.  He is going to do something like what you said.  Mounting holding tanks and Generator where the old Scenic 8V71 used to be.  I’ll have to get more pic as he gets closer to done.  Here is a picture of what it looks like on the semi frame.

Anyone that would do that to a Scenicruiser isn't likely to be my 'buddy'. . . . . unless he gives me lots of free parts.  ::)

He is more likely to be an 'associate', or 'some guy I seen down the road'.  ;D

Leave it to you Kyle to say it the way it is.   I was just being nice.

You might use 'toy hauler' as your search criteria instead of rear garage.  You will find a lot of trailers in your search but they might have enough similar engineering to help you with design.
