rv with a garage

does anyone have any idea on how this is constructed? could a large chassis be modified off a fire truck or school bus "diesel pusher" to accommodate a car such as a mini pickup or other vehicle with a diesel conversion in it. Frame rails would be rerouted to go up and over a vehicle in the center. any ideas

Thats how. I did a pusher conversion and if you think you can just re-route the frame rails, you got another thing coming. My frame rails look like steel I-beams used in office building construction.
