Looks like it needs a building inspector, not a MOT.

Not the best looking thing, but far from the worst! I admire people who do things like this, when it works. There are a few things I would do differently, but his/her RV is better than no RV!

Same. I camped next to a guy in Orlando last year (I think) who had built his RV. When we parked, he asked if it was OK if he ran his saw a little bit while cutting pieces for his rig. We told him it was perfectly OK and admired the work a bit.

Some of it was rough and crude, but still hella impressive to see someone building something out like that.

This one is a little rough on the eyes, but dang- they're making the best of it!

I'm prolly reading toooo much into this pic. It looks like a grate or something(serving area) on the outside of the van. Maybe selling food or something?

I have wondered about one of the small city buses to convert to an RV.

I used to see a home made TT on the way home from P/U of DS. It was aluminum smooth sided like a fiberglass unit...no paint. Then it was for sale. Then gone. Then new factory unit. Now it's for sale. Go figure.

Here are a few pics from the RV park I am staying at is SE Arizona. The owner of the park stores units at the far rear of the park and when the owner stops paying rent, or when the owner of the RV just gives it away to the park owner, the units get sold or chopped up. I got a very low hour Onan 4k gas generator out of the former class C.
