I've got this one.

Mighty Mini Compact AC/DC Power Distribution Panel

Note that the 45 or 60 amp designation refers to the DC output, not the AC input. These are both 30 amp AC input panels.

Awesome, is this the unit you would buy if you had to do everything over again?

I just finished installing the PD4560 in my build, and it is pretty easy to do. The only thing I did that was not in the instructions was to run a 12Ga wire from the grounding bar to the frame of the bus per the green line in the diagram below. Other than that I went by the book and it was an easy install.
I got my unit here:

PD4560 50 Amp Power Center with 60 Amp Converter/Charger

It gives you AC breakers, DC fuses, a three stage battery charger and it's easy to mount and hook up. I would definitely use one of these in a future conversion.
