a long wheelbase transit with the diesel cab/chassis looks like it is ~2000 - 2500 pounds as a rwd only, standard cab - the "light" class B transit based motorhomes are mostly 8000+ GVWR, granted they are figuring in liquid weights but even with large liquid storage tanks they add less than 1000 pounds total which suggests that easily the camper portion is 5000+ pounds.

now, most of them use similar construction on the exterior to what i'm proposing so, there aren't going to be amazing weight savings there - but, on the interior they tend to use traditional wood frame and heavy materials, which i hope to save on.

i'm hoping i can end up at ~6000-7000 pounds GVRW so not amazing savings. i think most of my best savings are going to come from aero.
