Thanks Scooby2 for your input.
Yes there are still many things to investigate. To my knowledge no twin cabs have yet been used with the slide on Innovan.
The chassis will certainly need to be lengthened by about 500 mm and the rear axle moved back by this amount. This has the advantage that there will be more useful, and useable, load carrying space alongside the chassis rails for fuel and water tanks. All below the C of G so that aids stability.
Suspension will need to be heavy duty, possibly air bag assisted so that unladen ride will not be too rugged.
Not a dead cert yet by any means, many things yet to be investigated.
Could be too expensive at the end of it all but probably still less than an all singing, all dancing, camper van
