Interesting proposal, but it would be easier to start with a van, most camper conversions I have seen are, there not as good looking I suppose but very few modern campers ever are.

The most common Renault conversion was the old traffic but the Renault Master would be ideal it has a very large load bay high roof and a 6 speed gearbox I found it pleasant to drive except for the fact the seats are too high for anyone over 6ft like me so you end up looking out the top of the windscreen.

My parents have a proffessionally made German camper based on the transit chassis and cab, with the 2.5ltr diesel which is surprisingly quick.

Also there are plenty of websites on comverting a van to a camper, I looked into a few years ago until my wife interveened. I'll try and find them...
