    I appreciate the response. I actually got started with my research on the HDT Escapee forum. They've been great so far and have been very inspirational with how awesome their rigs are.

    I am familiar with 1Rod, but didn't know he was a traveling nurse. That's great information. Thank you for that. I wanted his setup from the instant I saw it.

    What are your thoughts on the HDT rally? I'm considering attending it for informational purposes to see what's possible, but I feel a little weird showing up without anything to show off or share. I appreciate the offer to show your truck to me. I'll likely take you up on that.

    Hi Tedd,
    That's great that you are thinking about a truck conversion. I'm firmly convinced that they make a great platform for a motor home. Have you checked out the HDT forum on Escapees? Those guys mostly use semi tractrs to pull their 5th wheel trailers. Then they build a deck on the truck to haul a car or motorcycles. There is one member there, 1Rod, that is also a travelling nurse living in his camper trailer. He's got a very cool setup. He put a box on the deck of his truck and he puts his Mini Cooper in that and pulls a large 5th wheel. His 5th wheel even has a garage in back and he puts his Gold Wing in there. They have a rally every Oct., www dot hdtrally dot com I've gone the last two years and likely will go this year. Not 100% sure yet tho. If you want to check out my truck sometime I'd be happy to show it to you and take you for a drive in it.

    Hello from the other side of MSP Airport if you are still living in St Paul. We haven't met, but I saw that you were an active member on the forum and were right here in Minnesota as well. My wife and I live in Richfield.

    I like your rig! I started seriously researching truck conversions and every variety of having a home on wheels a few weeks ago because my wife is in the process of securing a work as a travel nurse practitioner. The first thing I started looking into was the licensing and registration issues. From what I can tell, I'm quite pleased regarding how liberal Minnesota seems to be about most of it in terms of what needs a CDL and what doesn't.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say hi from across the airport. I hope you are well.
