Not too bad. A little more body work, some glass, and a paint job.

Hopefully it has a decent turbo-diesel under the hood, and a good-sized fuel tank (or tanks).

But to REALLY go fully tricked out, all the axles should be steerable. Drive that sucker SIDEWAYS into the parking spot!

In someplaces a dual rear axle requires a special license.

A customer of mine took a perfectly good SUV and cut everything forward of the firewall away (including the front axle/wheels), put on a tongue and made it into a trailer. The interior is untouched of course, greatly reducing the cargo capacity. And I don't know what the tongue weight is, but it's gotta be way too much for the 1/2 ton pickup they pull it with.

Well, why the hell not, carrying extra long fence posts or laminated steel roofing panels is a bitch without a long trailer.

Not a bad idea Anon 4:14 - I used to have a Suburban and removing the 3rd seat and folding 2nd bench forward, had plenty of room to sleep out during the winter deer season. Slept like a baby - a steel tent in a cold rain is an easy way to relax and stay comfortable.

I'd open the rear doors, drape a tarp over them for a covered rear entry, hanging bug net from same as well. Just had to duct tape the buttons closed to prevent light activating. I lined the window perimeter with Velcro tape and attach the opposite tape w/ cut nylon window screen (black if you want easy viewing through) - built in vents that could be closed off. My truck had electric windows so I had to switch it for windows to operate.

Most of the comforts of home - I miss that.
