Unless they modified the suspension, that thing will shake that TT to death, not to mention the people in the Cab! I like the idea though.

Have you ever been in a trailer on a rough road...they shake a lot anyway.

those trucks can be had pretty cheap used. $10k or less. 4 cyc diesel and will be a work horse. I almost bought a box truck like this but ended up with a cube van... I still have regrets..

Is that a dually? Not the best option for rough and rocky roads off pavement let alone going overland.

Some people switch over to super singles to address this issue.

But really overland doesn't usually mean rock crawling. Vast majority of travel is still via roads but the extra ground clearance still provides a huge benefit.

Super Singles?

I don’t know of anyone who makes 19.5” wheels or tires to convert it to singles.

No, I haven't. (my Class A is bad enough) Why? In every state I've traveled, IMO, it's illegal/unsafe for humans to ride in a trailer. . . in motion, on the highway. Regardless, . . . IMO, it's not a bad idea, but, in this case, it's an economical prototype, not a successful production model. If it works for you, . . . hey, . . . why not? IMO, it has all the benefits of a travel trailer, but, FEW of the benefits of a Class A-B-C motor home. (no connection between the cab, chassis, and, the coach)

I might be using incorrect terminology and I'm not sure the cost...but these guys did it.

Never suggested it was a good idea to ride in a trailer. It is actually legal in some states with certain requirements but that's not the point of this thread so I suggest starting a different one if you want to discuss the issue.

I don't think anyone was suggesting it was a production model or comparable to a Class A-B-C...that's not the point. Look up Overlanders, totally different expectations and this fits in with that pretty darn well but without some of the crazy prices.

Those are heavy military type 19.5” tires that can be used in place of duals.

These are super singles and a pair of duals beside them for comparison;
