I might try to build something like this someday. You could camp any where with a rig like this!

If your thinking about something like this. Look for a truck with a pass threw door into the living area. Having to get out and walk around to the back, open the rear door to get in kind of gives away the stealth mode.

If you watched the videos you would realize there is a pass through door.

It seems likely the poster was just trying to offer a polite suggestion on why the pass thru door is a good idea. For my part, I appreciate it when folks point out things to bear in mind when deciding what features are a priority.

I don't watch video's much and "scroll" through long ones. I do not have data to waste on long videos. Besides I'm on a phone and details are lost with such a small screen.

Thanks,
I know of some using a Sprinter Van to build an "adventure" type trailer. Those cost a lot even used. I've seen others buy used Penske trucks and just do basics for sleeping. This type you have to go around to get in "camper".

This is actually a used u-haul 10' box truck. GMC savana to be exact. You can go to the u-haul website and find them everywhere.
You can see the pass through from the cab to the camper section in the image I provided.
