Default Wanted a Shop To strip parts and I build camper

Hi, I am currently an OTR driver. I have a clear bill of sale...not rgistered in my name, that needs to be registered as..?...motorhome to be... I am looking for a shop that is able to cut the bunk off my truck, remove 5th wheel, maybe remove axle,... I would like to keep tires and rims for resale,...and shop keeps parts removed for resale ...removal and keep parts for labor of said removal...I have a tri pak generator system that I will soon sale for 3000.00. In return I would like to frame and sheet metal a 25 foot living space onto the truck at said shop. I would build said framed room...I would need no more than a months time? to construct a framed room at shop/location....SHOP COULD BE ANYPLACE USA. ANY TAKERS for a place for me to do this? share any ideas, thanks Tom

that's going to be hard to find with insurance regulations now a days. parts coming off have to be real good shape to resell. i know i couldn't tie a bay up for a month for maybe around $500 for sleeper, $200 for 5th wheel and $500 - 800 for differential.
figure 6 hrs a day x 23 weekdays 4 hrs a day for 4 Saturdays x $75.00 per hr.
that's $11,550 per month per bay. your going to need two bays almost so you can have room to work.
