The shelf folded. Doesn't stick out much. I Still have to figure a way to latch it in the folded position. And the hole cut out in the side just in front of the rear axle is where the Onan diesel generator goes. I have to build the slide system for that yet. Tricky as it weighs 650lbs. I'm going all electric and diesel. So if the 1k of solar falls behind i'll start the diesel genset. Water heater is electric and diesel. Heat is and diesel or the electric mach 8 heat pump on roof. The stove burner is a built in inductive unit and a convection oven/microwave.

Here is the end of the cargo box installed under the bus. To the left you can see the end of the insulated stainless 110gl gray water tank. I have pad heaters stuck to the bottom of the tank with a temperature controller in case we take it out in cold weather

Here is the platform i put on the back. It is a 12' long van ladder rack with a peice of 1/8" thick aluminum diamond plate. It ised to be on my van bit was too heavy. The bus doesn't mind the weight though.

The solar panels are on the right. I built an aluminum angle frame to tilt three panels at a time left or right. Still have to build the prop system to tilt them up. Thay are already hinged though. By the way. That array is 48" wide x 156" long.
