Load center/electrical closet ideal location

So I’m getting close to installing my solar system, battery bank, load center, etc. I have a Front engine bus with underbelly storage behind the back wheels.
I’m thinking about putting my battery bank/inverter in the basement, but I do have the space under the bed which would leave the underbelly area for more Accessible storage. Also on the fence about where the ideal location for my 110 load center/fuse box should go.

What are your thoughts on location? Anything you’ve done that you really like or wish you had done differently?

What type of batteries?
LFP likes to be at about the same temperature that humans are comfortable at. ~55-75 is roughly the sweet spot, above 90 is not good, near freezing is not good (for charging, fine for storage/discharge). So if you will be using LFP, inside the passenger compartment may make sense if you ahve the space.
