It would likely be cheaper to buy a small pull behind camper plus im sure ur insurance company would prefer it over what you have planned…..
If you are set on doing it tho don’t used treated in contact with the frame since the chemicals will rust the frame out. use some sort of composite mayb or a ceder that’s been stained real good so it doesn’t rot away (or metal of some kind). Either way paint ur frame really well. To me it would make more since to find a flat bed that would fit your truck and build up form there.
For siding the cedar side looks good or mayb metal. How about T1-11 siding… Whatever you do keep in mind it will likely have to withstand high wind speeds.
Roofing… Id stick with metal roof that was screwed and glued down very very well

Im sure with enough time an money you can build what ever you want but I would highly remomend and old pull behind camper that was made for the speed and wind. You could still redo the insides.
or mayb a flat bed lik I already said with some walls that you’ve built and normal factory bed topper…
