I have a 76 Dodge Chinook 22' motorhome that I am thinking to make into a 4x4.
It sits on a 1 ton chassis which I think would have been also used for the 1 ton pick up. That is the exact question, are they the same chassis?

If so I can look for a similar age truck and get on with it.
That would lead to the question of how long was that chassis used? Same as this forum suggests 1987?

Hopefully someone will soon have some answers for you, Catimann!

Meantime, if you have them, would love to see pics of your motorhome.

I googled a Chinook for fun and it looks like it's based on a van. So is a van chassis the same as a truck chassis? IDK. I know some of the suspension is different but compatible. I remember people converting (or maybe they were factory(?)), vans to 4x4s back in the day.

I also found the truck frame dimensions that might provide a clue. Good luck and hopefully someone knows the answer. Grady

Truck uses frame. All vans were unibody from 1971 up. Class C motor home chassis had full frame.
