can i lengthen my van for road use?

Question by : can i lengthen my van for road use?
right,, well i have a a bit of a problem. im looking for a camper/motor home but i don’t want a westfalia or a transit with a caravan bolted to it and i dont want a bus, what i want is a really long low top van something like a transit but around 26 ft long. i done some research and all i can find is a 78 gmc royale in usa and its sort of what i want but its more round than a panel van.
so my question is this …..could i buy a lwb transit and convert it to 26ft ish by say welding another rear end off another transit and moving the axle further back, fit it out as a motor home and use it legally on uk and european roads??
id like to no if there a company that does this sort of thing i have a fair chunk to buy a motorhome any way but would rather build my own camper to my own specifications
any help would be great
many thanks

Tyres are designed and built to provide many thousands of miles of excellent service. For maximum benefit, tyres must be maintained properly to avoid tyre damage. There are many factors that will affect the life of the tyre such as temperature, maintenance, conditions of storage and use, load, speed, pressure as well as driving style. These will have a great impact on the length of service life you can expect from your tyres. Because of this it is important to inspect your tyres regularly for signs of aging that include cracking and tread deformation. It is also advisable that a tyre specialist inspects your tyres regularly after they are 5 years old to advise on when they should be taken out of service.
There is currently no agreement as to a specific age when a tyre should be removed regardless of appearance; tyre manufacturer’s recommendations vary from 5-10 years.
