Held on by trim

My birch panels are not attached to the skins at all, but held in place by flat bar trim pieces.

wood paneling

I bought some luan....got it home and didn't like the looks of it so I returned it and got some 1/4" oak. Cut a piece to fit next to the end cap. Not liking it either. Im probably going to go with some different shades of tongue and groove. Im hoping it won't be over the top because I really want wood flooring.

flooring

Im debating laying down my flooring before I begin to build the cabinets. Any insight on that? I really wanted to use a fossilized bamboo. Problem is its heavy and not cheap.
Also....I installed shallow electrical boxes for all my 110 outlets. Im finding out that the 12/2 wire does not bunch up well in that tight space. Has anybody solved that problem?

cabinets

Getting ready to start building cabinets. Curious what folks are using for cabinet depth. I plan on laying down cabinets on curb side along with street side where the sink will be located.

In a regular kitchen, common practice is to run the hardwood floor throughout the whole space, and then place the kitchen cabinets on top of the floor.

BUT, in a trailer, where weight is the enemy, I'd mount the cabinets and then place the hardwood floor up to the cabinets.

Just a thought.

floor

I figured the whole floor is going to weigh around 300. 50lbs a box and I might use 6., about 200 more then if I waited till after the cabinets ; because I used heavier gauge steel for the frame and a 6k axle I went ahead and put it down. Easier and cleaner look. .Picts to follow. Thanks for your input. Cheers, Mike

54 cruiser

picts of interior. Decided to paint the rear endocap. Sucks after all the time spent polishing. Just thought it was too dark and I really couldn't get the luster back after so much sanding of the aluminum. Looks better I think white. Also painted the rear bed. Used nature bamboo for flooring.

convertor?

Where did you buy the all in one convertor/AC/DC panel? I'm starting on the electrical rewiring and wow what a headache it is giving me!

wiring

I hear you....I ran my wires several time before coming up with a good plan. Tough part was not exactly knowing where I was putting everything. I drilled out a lot of holes and used a lot of grommets. I ended up with 4 AC circuits and half a dozen DC circuits. AC circuits....Curbside outlets, Streetside outlets...microwave and Air Conditioning. big problem Im having is with the 1.5 inch shallow boxes. Can get a normal outlet in them with 12/2 romex. Especially if their daizy chained.
