Looking for advice on transforming truck camper...

...into a small trailer. 

I'm selling my truck and buying a van, so I don't need the two camper projects I've gathered.  I only have one set of jacks, so if I get rid of the '68 Frolic, and keep the (approx) '70 Real-Lite, I was thinking of cutting off the cab-over bunk, and slicing off the two feet at the back that currently has no floor and fixing it up and attaching ti to a trailer frame. 

I could leave the two feet on the back, it'll have the trailer floor at the end of the project.  The only current possible water problem is up in the cab-over so removing that would save some trouble, and just be a little different work, re-framing and siding the new wall and roof edge.

See any problems with this plan?

Sounds like you already have the gears clattering in the ole nogginz,,, your only limited by your own imagination.... sit down with some scratch paper and draw out a few ideas,, they dont have to be perfect sketches,, just quick ideas as they come to mind, After filling the waste basket with idea after idea and your smoothing out more details,, you will then have a better idea on how to attack the project. Great projects all started with an idea,,, then the idea on paper, then from paper to lumber and materials. And after a few scraps and cuts and bruises and sweat on your brow,,, the idea you dreamed up in your head is becoming a reality. Thos kind of projects I go all hog while on,,, thin king,, hmmmm,, this would look better doing this or how about adding this before finishing that.... the brain is usually in hyper drive,, pretty much like a turbo coffee buzz followed by an energy drink.......
