Default New Build

Hi
Just started a new to me build of a toterhome on a 1994 freightliner fl60 chassis with a 1988 8.3 turbo cummins. Plan is mainly to use to pull a trailer to haul a race car and use as a motorhome. I have bought a build somebody has started on but never finished. I have just rebuilt the turbo which had been left exposed and was pretty corroded up, installed some new batteries and just got running.
I want to add on to what they have currently done, I am pulling a tag but think I would like to leave room to put a fifth wheel hitch also.
I could use a lot of advice and input along the way to those willing to share there knowledge. The current addition does not have the head height to stand up so my addition I would need to make a little higher. Mainly wanting seating, a table, couple beds, sink , toilet, fridge, microwave.
Thanks in advance I will try and figure out how to add a few pictures.
Located in Alberta, Canada
And also a newb to the site.
Thanks

I don't know anything about building a rig out from scratch, but I thought I'd drop in to welcome you to the site. Would love to see photos of your work in progress.

Good luck with your build.

I wish I would have scrolled down to Don's post. Wouldn't have had to turn my laptop over to see those pictures.
