Hi there markopolo,
Saw you post on Woodalls forum (Aftermarket Cabinets for Roadtrek) and followed the link you gave only to discover this interesting forum. I was impressed by the cabinets made byMobileLife. They made me think of the cabinet I designed for my RT 200 and wanted to reply by mentioning my own cabinet.

After I finished registering I went to the Tweaks, Mod,&Projects section and noticed the link you gave to my own mods. My cabinet has 2 drawers and 2 sections using sliding panels instead of drawers. It's easy to remove for retrofit needs.

Feel free to ask any additional info.

When I first saw your counter top extension I thought it was just the table part. Then I read it and realized that you built the whole cabinet unit. Great job! The slide up doors are a great idea to give access when the table is setup.

I have the exact same TV mount as you. I don't know if H&P or the previous owner of my van installed it.

The wall mount was quite expensive (around $175, taxes included at FutureShop) but offered the maximum flexibility. Rodger used a Peerless articulating arm for his TV http://www.myroadtrek.homestead.com/SharpAquosTV.html. As for the TV connections, there is a 12 Volt plug still available. I could eventually use it for an other appliance and have a couple of small inverters that can easily fit in this tight space if needed.

Coming back to the cabinet, we keep the table in its actual position and simply rotate it when we eat. I used brass sash locks to give the cabinet a tight grip. It's much easier to remove the cabinet with these locks compared to having bolts and nuts.
