Decided to convert the 96 Chevy 3500 Short Bus

Roadtripp the floor was modified by the RT factory. The channel is about 80 inches long.

The pan also serves as the floor for the shower with a drain in it. You could get a shop to fab one for you to your specifications. Be sure to support from the bottom if you do this, not just the lip. You will need to take into account for the driveshaft upward movement when your suspension compresses. You may also have to heat shield it from your exhaust.

Thank you for the ideas. I’ll consider every option at this stage as I haven’t done much work to the vehicle, Microbird, yet. Modifying the floor is a option as it’s empty. No seats or anything. I’ll need to go under the vehicle for some measurements now the week of rain has eased up. 
  I turned in the old title and registered it as a RV. The new title arrived. This wasn’t as easy as usual. I went to the DOL three times to get it done. They could not find anything to compare it to for a value. 
 It’s long past due for a update. I was a little on the Skoolie, Permies, Outback solar, Solar Panel Talk, and Reddit Vanlife forums. Exploring some forums has been fun. 
  The message really has sunk in that being extra tall has been the main inhibitor to using and enjoying my stock vans. Ive used my Express cargo van for two years and its enough. I just cannot move inside without a struggle. The past few months have made it plain. And I’ve noticed many newer vans and RVs are taller. Perhaps with the lighter frameing it has allowed a higher ceiling

Warning!! 
 I will add that waiting to turn in the title was a costly mistake. They fined me $130 for about 3-4 months. I believed the myth I heard that the fine is $20 total.
