Got the monster tow rig/RV project
found a deal I couldn't pass up. I'm sure most people here remember the
26 foot U-Haul truck converted to "Krawler hauler" by one of the memebers here. Well I plan to build someingthing like that.
I found a 94 F-700 with a 5.9 Cummins/6 spd trans cab and chassis teuck for a good price. Its quite a bit heavier than I had planned but this way the brakes and driveline will really last a while. (It never hurts to have more brakes then you need)
The good : 12V BT 190HP 5.9 Cummins , 6 speed Eaton/fuller trans, Starts good cold. Engine is smooth running, White paint easy to touch up, Vent windows
The Really good : HD suspension and brakes. It has a double frame!!
The Not real bad is that Its NOT equipped with A/C, It does have vent windows For your highway comfort
Without it being an RV it requires a CDL with air brake endorsment. GVW is 32,700. 15 feet of frame from cab to end.
I'm thinking if it was a box truck and had living quarters with a toilet and beds, sink and such it becomes and RV. If is was built right you could haul a TJ in the back.
And or you could tow almost any size trailer you want with it.
I'm currently looking for a 24 foot U-Haul box to install on it. I'll have to cut 4 feet of it behind the cab so it will fit.
(U-Haul 24 foot boxes have a 20 foot floor.)
