Also, hopes of switching to used fryer oil.
Luc from QC with the 17' boler is quite knowledgeable in that area. Might be someone you would want to connect with. Great guy!

Or you could pull a fifth wheel:

A nice write-up on the FC150 here:

Thanks for reminding me of this blast from the past. Now that they are gone, I sure miss them.

Very cool. You could put a cover on the wheel wells on the trailer and use for storage area.

We are planning to make our next tow vehicle a veggie engine... have to make do with what we have right now, but I see us working on that in the future. Glad to see some veggie action on here!!

Great setup

Great Donor vehicle.

GREAT engine

Run it on VEGGIE!! the 617A slurps it up and loves it.

Im in longggggggg slowwwwwwww process of something simular. 62 Unimog with same engine as yours. Will run on veggie with on board centrifuge for cleaning/dewatering waste oils for fuel. Already have the components for that and the background study.

Adding a cut down big rig sleeper cab as passenger space. Will go rest a short flat bed and mount a 5th wheel scamp egg on a pintal Military trailer as a tug behind.

Was going to go your route of fiberglass egg as camper box, but changed my mind. Have determined the tall European Style Expedition Campers too limiting on where you can use them in the US due to height.

My thought is as a trailer I can drop it off for trips like the Rubicon. Will have some sort of pop up camper on the bed or just use the sleeper box for camping when the trailer is left behind.

if your going to go anything different than diesel (wvo/bioD etc.) then scrap adding generator off of a PTO. Been there, studied that. from what I've figure out by reading and asking smarter than me folk; the constant engine speeds like a gen set is where the most problems with coked engines come into play. Can be done? but will double or tripple regular maintainance to keep the engine cleaned out.

Besides it's overkill. You cold power the whole campground with the engine curve matched with the proper sized genset head.

but read yourself and come to your own conclusions.... Im just a coach.

I've seen pictures of a Casita mounted on a cab over Mitsubishi (I think) on one of the forums but don't remember if it was on this forum. Think the owner was from Texas.
