This size vehicle could make a great compact Class A slightly larger than a van, but smaller than an Axis. And the F-150 already comes with 5.0L gas V8 or 3.0L diesel V6, 10-speed auto, independent front suspension, 4X4 option, and a fully boxed frame.

Maybe Ford should develop a new pickup-truck-based stripped chassis for smaller motorhomes and step vans.

Looks would need to be cleaned up a bit ó make it look a little more like a Hymer.

Don't forget a hybrid and BEV F-150 are coming too...
