I'm thinking more and more about mounting a cabinet of some kind to the lift door and using a rack and pinion type lowering device (unless whatever I can scavenge from the lift innards will do the trick). Then I can swing it out and down, but could still use from inside if necessary and not in Arizona. ;)

This one looks like it would work pretty well.

Not off the back as the OP was thinking, but creative. Fridge is inside, but everything else, sink, grill, stove, chuckbox, is outside.
Any idea how much those boxes cost

No idea, other than what I can google. Looks like he may have used an "underbody truck tool box". You can find a bunch on google. I would imagine he made or re-purposed some sliders to make it slide out like that.

I think it's a slick use of space, and clever way to do the sink without making the plumbing move (other than whatever he did for the drain side).

(The bus is named "Big Woodie". Maybe it hasn't been posted here? It was on Craigslist a while back. Some more info.)

Its like having the space of a tip out and the common sense to only vacation where its nice out.
Its a great old meets new design. I have friend with a sign shop and have done them cars with wraps on them. I have been considering a log cabin wrap or something creative.
