When you put it that way, it all sounds ridiculous. Wonderfully ridiculous.

Actually ,,the stuff I have in mind to put in there I wouldn't want inside the bus,,,,and wouldn't want in the camper.

Wheel chocks
Straps
Assorted 4x4 blocks
A jack
Reciever hitch and other trailer shit

Shit,,,,,that stuff alone will mostly fill the boxes I bought.

No sunroof though,,,,but looking at those panels sloped up like that makes me wonder how it would look with one of those aerodynamic things the big trucks have or a wing like people sometimes put on towrigs.

They probably create alot of drag when not pulling a trailer though.

You got on board air, why not make an adjustable wing Think VW Corrado

After seeing it person Saturday and now seeing the pics, you sure got a jag of work done. Steve the welder right? I just kept calling him Mr Welder, or The Welder on Saturday
