Diesel manual transmission conversion P30?

Has anyone heard of a diesel manual transmission conversion for an Airstream / Argosy MH on the P30 chassis? Is there enough 'universality' in this chassis to swap in engine, trams, clutch, clutch pedal etc. from a donor step van? Seems this would provide simplicity, economy, durability, more power control and something interesting to drive for us manual transmission fans.
