Ford does offer Transit stripped chassis models but I think it would take significant re engineering to make the Vegas/Axis on that chassis.
I do mean the "E-Series" stripped chassis on which the Axis and Vegas are built on. Starting with 2016 model year the revised chassis will include some upgrades including a switch to the 6R140 6-speed automatic used on heavier duty trucks. Gear spacing is improved compared to previous 5-speed. There are other revisions but the transmission is the one I care most about.
I'm familiar with Transit cutaway and cab chassis but have not seen anything at all about a stripped chassis. Not that the Transit chassis has the size or Gross Vehicle Weight Rating to handle a Class A motorhome. As is, I feel the 12,500 pound E-350 is marginal -- another reason why I'd eliminate the slide if possible.
