A question on your dual battery setup, you say you can go 2-3 days before you run out of power on the deep cycle battery, does your setup not allow recharging the deep cycle battery via the alternator?
No worries! Hope you like it. I mean that if i pull up to a campsite in the summer, and want to not start the car, thats how long the battery will last. Of course if I turn the engine on, itll then charge both batteries, a 150-200w solar setup would allow met to avoid doing that ever.

Any cabinet building tips for noobs? Tools required? Links to cabinet building references? I知 thinking about tackling this setup myself but not too confident in my wood working skills. Thanks for the plans by the way! I知 putting donation in my costs spreadsheet for the build.

I keep debating on doing this but damn those slides are expensive. Maybe with my tax return. Truthfully you need a circular saw and a drill. A table saw may make it easier or harder depending on your skill.

For these plans I ended up using table saw, circular saw, jigsaw, router, and air nailer. Overall the plans were spot on except one missing dado on the prints but easily found when assembling. I got the drawer slides form ORR and ORR they are HEAVY DUTY. I haven't figured out the mounting yet or why the plans have 1/4"-20 and #10-32 threaded inserts. I'll post up some pics when I get them a little closer to finished. I'm only two nights of work in and so far have raw assembled boxes.

i ran into sizing issues with the metric measurements from solid works. Otherwise so far its worked well. Mine are about done and thats with me changing some things to make it my own and change some finishes around.

The difference sizes are for the connecting of the drawers to themselves versus the sliders to the drawers. You can use whatever sizes you want but thats just want tried to optimize with.

Would love to see what you made! Any pics?

Also, where is the missing dado? would love to know.

Yes, the sliders are HEAVY DUTY indeed. build it right the first time and itll last through many vehicles!

If your on instagram send me a message so I can keep up with your build.

I tried to find where the missing dado was but now I can't recall looking through the prints. They appear to make sense, but I know I dado'ed 13 pieces then when assembling had to dado one more. Maybe I just screwed up an edge, who knows! It's an Easter egg hunt.

I also put together a cut list that I found very helpful and used workshopbuddy.com to optimize the panel cuts (although it doesn't use decimals so just multiply everything by 1000). Without the left and right beauty panels and also including a 36x48 piece for my front extension/sleeping platform I was able to fit it all on 3 full 4x8 sheets.

I got my slides from ORR & ORR so the hole patterns don't line up with the prints but that's easy enough to lay out using the slides as a template.

I'll post some finished pics on instagram @blackoutt _adv when they're done but that'll probably be a couple more weeks to finish hardware dry assembly, sand and finish, then final assembly. So far I'm very happy with the size and light weight (before the slides!). These should last a very long time.

Looks good! The slides are 90% of the drawer weight.

I also found it easier to draw the holes of the slides instead of measuring as some of the measurements didnt line up when i first tried it for the holes to make.

I accounted this to the floor not being flat under the where I removed the double decker do-dad. I plan on making a shim under just the corners near the rear seat where the two boxes meet to level them out and support the sag. I'll also be using part of that flat area on the rear of the boxes to support sleeping platform legs so I need it to be solid touching the floor there. I think adding 1/2" under the entire assembly would work too but then raises the whole thing up into precious space.

I might do the same. Ill have to see how much a pain it is to keep it level and make it right. Like you said i dont want to lose any more valuable cargo space height.

I believe the missing dado is on the back of the top panel of the casings. I ended up having to do that one while assembling the first casing.

My drawer slide holes didn't line up either. For those still planning I would definitely recommend marking through the slides. Also, don't drill the middle holes until you have the slide mounted in the first two. Made life a lot easier for me.
