rebuilding a prowler trailer to a gypsy wagon.

first of all this rig has is deplorable, it has sat in 1 spot for years. and the ocupant abaned it.  It had a leak in the water cell, and it rotted the floor from the kicthen to the bathroom, the only thing keeping someone from falling thugh the floor is the carpent, and lanolim. I had to take the floor and cabnets out. so far the water heater is propane gas, and I am reluctant to remove that, I am going to remove the heater though, and take off the air conditioner,the tub is a bad joke, but I am thinking of leaving the potty were it is, It sits directly over the sewege tank, After replacing the floor, I plan on cutting the back of the rv off, so I can make a temoury wall and door, the door will be hinged so it will act as a ramp. and be about 40 inches wide, That way I can roll in my armor box, and other things when I need to. On the right side, I plan on having a armory closet, it will hold wepons, axes, swords, and armor, on the left same size closet for the potty, forward of the potty a real soak tub.  still n the left forwerrd of that and a little higher, the seat for dinning, so OK the mate in the tub will have thire lap and feet under the galley seat. the galley will have the usual sink, stove arangment, and the master bed room the master bed will have the freshwater tank under it, along with the pump. the Now secured door, will have a small boat heater in front of it, and working aft, a fridge, and a nice setti, type berth, going to the aft of that back to the armory. the middle of the rv sould be wide open for tents, other gear, and such just to get it down the road. for now I do not plan on cutting off the tin walls, and building a nice frame, for to raise and lower the upper sides and roof, I do how ever plan on making that happen with time. I am going to build the frame out of aluninum, and skin it with aluninum, then paint it the usual color, of a dark green, and yellow trim, What will be her name? The Snugly III
