What are you going to convert? bus, van or something else? If going the bus route try obtaining the bus converters bible. Try jims bus page at http://n6ecv.net/bus.htm

If you are wanting to build a trailer IMHO start with a Frame already built.
Use a salvage trailer or a old trailer and strip it. Lots of variables with building one from scratch. Axles are placed using a weight distribution percentage.

Most trailers are pretty much all built the same except for the length.
Glen L plans on the internet sells building plans for trailers for55.00 to 65.00.
these are pretty dated design but a good start point.

Some books mostly for redoing busses on the net which crossover well to trailers.
RVtimes.com in issue 102 has a story on someone building a trailer from scratch.
Good luck.
