Yeah man get back to it! Let me know if you need help.
I didn't get anywhere near as much as I planned done this weekend because it was raining almost the entire time, then started wet-snowing, and got cold. Lame. So I did what I could.
Cut the countertops and cut out the sink, it is not installed but just sitting there (for now). It weighs like 100 lbs, cast iron Kohler unit. Got it for $40.
Got a fridge, 10.7 cubic foot Whirlpool from Best Buy, $404. Fits nicely, will run off the inverter when driving.
Shower in case I haven't posted a pic yet. FRP paneling will be on the sides.
Rear bed platform, right now a workbench. Wide enough to fit a "full" size mattress. Tons of storage underneath.
Originally the fridge was going to go here, but it stuck out too far, so I am using it as a closet. Once I buy a microwave I will put a shelf on the top for that and the rest will be a closet.
The crapper. With a bit of wheel well intrusion that will be taken care of.

View from the front.
Cabinets. Between the two I will be putting a counter section on hinges with a latch, that can hinge down so the door is still usable.
I would like to reiterate that all the walls and countertops, and the floors of the closets are made out of used solid core doors that were free
. They are pretty heavy, but I highly reccommend them, it was nice to not have to frame out walls. I am planning on running wiring in exposed PVC conduit for kind of an industrial look so not being able to run wiring in it is not an issue. Some of them have a sheetrock-like center, these were fire-rated doors. Some were just particle board all the way through. They are considerably heavier but stronger.
The cabinets were also free. And the OSB is $8 a sheet (if you can deal with the smell and how easily it caves to water exposure). I think I will seal it with poly before I put the top flooring down, just to be safe.
I have been messing with designs for a booth, which will go in front of the crapper (passenger side of the bus) across from the kitchen cabinets. Here is what I have to far:
It is roughly 7' long overall, 32" wide (we are all pretty skinny, ha). The idea is the tabletop will be able to come down (remove poles) and sit on the seat bottom once cushions are removed, and be usable as a bed, a "twin" air mattress will fit over it. Thoughts?
Looking forward to 70+ degree weather for part of this week.
