Note that "most" of the heavy items (appliances, etc) are located on or near the axle centerline. COG changes are fraught with problems. Only waste tanks expected to be emptied prior to travel are aft of the centerline (but one can travel with X-weight when full at near to ground level; with little rise from centerline to rearmost tank top).

I'd be more inclined to build living quarters in the front of an enclosed 5'er car hauler.

We were at the (formerly) Historic Races at Laguna Seca and saw this fine toy hauler...

My 1958 Caravanner 22' has the same bad floor issues so cab off is necessary. Intend to
put 14" high extensions on outriggers with circumferential top plate. While cab is off, radius the wheel openings, chop the axle ends and modify to independent air lift suspension. Suspension set to normal road clearance or 11" of lift for off road. No problem to kneel to ground as have added new front electric jack which fully retracts. Do not know how to raise ball height to allow full lift and still keep rig level. Will replace the belly pan with .60 EPDM rubber . foam the original frame cavity and then add new floor at new 14" height. thoughts?
