Got the pictures BIGGER looks much better now. Me and a buddy built it for camping out at motorsport functions such as Eldora Raceway, Bowling Green Tractor Pull and stag trips, pub crawls, and family campouts. There will be more pictures I the future now that I know how this works.

Fridge if I recall is a 12 Cubic foot. Definitely use it with shore power, but when we go out on pub crawls we also run it off the inverter. Its was brand new so I think it is somewhat energy efficient. If we know we are going out we'll cool it off with shore power and then its not such a strain on the batteries. For the bunk framing I'll ask my buddy if he still has some pictures(I didn't have a computer or digital camera at the time).
But they are made with 2x6's 5/8 plywwod on the top bunk and 1/2(lid for storage - damn wheel wells) plywood on the bottom ones. Ill take some more pictures this week and post'em.

Good job man. Your cabinets look nice too. Ever think about a stove top?

Re: Slab Cab'n
 
We wanted all the room we could have for bottles and mix, but when we go camping, depending if it is raining we have a small coleman propane stove stored under the counter, that fits on top if it right nice. Our biggest dilema right now is where to put the garbage. We bought a cheap one that is just beside/behind the driver but is in the way of the electronics cabinet. Every time we change a video or game its in the way. So I think we are going to put it under the back TV. We have a space 12" wide by 24" deep and 4' tall all that that is in there is our breaker box and a selector switch for our shore power/house power.

Here is the new Dog House Cover I machined at work out of 1/8 Stainless. I engraved the following:
Welcome Aboard The SLAB CAB'N

Also I stumbled across a used Paloma Tankless Water Heater. Model # PH-5-2F. The guy is selling for $300 with a 12 volt water pump. Picking it up Saturday. Anyone using one of these?

This is what the add said

Compare it to the new PH-6 on website
