Would anyone like to comment on the different classes of truck converisons?

For example, if there are 8 different classes of trucks, which ones are you most likely to find as truck conversions?

Are they usually found in class 7 and 8 or do you find them in 4,5,6...or 1,2,3...? How small do they get and what defines the different classes as a class?

And in a class 8 size, what are the differences between the truck conversions?

Is it motor size, one or two axles...? Is everthing else similar? What would be the different variables? What would be the constant variables...?

Feel free to ad whatever you want here. I'm listening.
