I can't take credit for the build of the cabinets. I did however design and lay it out based on some photos but I'm terrible when it comes to woodwork so got a client of mine to do it.

Just ordered my aux setup and solar. I'll keep this thread updated as I set it up.

Awesome.

What kind of lights are those? I picked up some LED light bars for my westy but haven't plugged them in yet.

Thanks they are just your average led strips

They light up the entire bus nicely.

did you get the warm white ones? (looks like it)

FYI - ebay prices are way cheaper on this stuff than amazon as you buy directly from the seller in china with minimal ebay % markup):

Yes warm white. I'm a fan of Amazon because of their great return policy and shipping times. I did not get them off eBay as there cheap already and I didn't want to wait 1-2 months for them to arrive. As well the quality is slightly different they use a copper core wire vs aluminum. I have had some off eBay before and the quality control can be terrible. Other times it's been perfect.

Just wrapping up my aux battery setup I'll post pics when complete.

I do have a bit of left over leds if you wanted to check them out.

So here it is minus the Renogy 100W folding solar panel which I will put on my roof or outside the bus when camping.

Here is a list of everything I bought:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3FVEC51SDX9PE/ref=cm_wl_huc_view

Here are the pics. I have the battery charger always hooked up, with a port for shore power, as well I have a retractable power cord which I can pull out if there is not a plugin. The inverter I have a remote switch for as well, thought it would be handy. Everything fit under my bus seat perfectly.
