This is a different approach to build RV cabinets, aluminum framing cladded with either wood or plastic panels. Assembling precut 80/20 extrusions is simple, like a Lego.
Small cabinets could be easily done with 1” profiles and larger ones with 1.5”. Strong frame eliminates a need for strong panels, I used ¼” with purpose so it looks good and contains a cargo.
Cabinets can be made fully covered with color matching wood and they would look just like Roadtrek’s cabinetry.

As an example:
- A 2’ x 3’ x 6’ cabinet built from 80/20 extrusions.
- Frame from 1” 1010-S profile, $121.7 + about 10-20% in hardware, 22.4 lbs.
- Frame from 1.5” 1515-ULS profile, $206.3 plus hardware, 41.8 lbs.
- ¼” Plywood to cover all sides 2.25 x 4’ x 8’ sheets at 51 lbs.
80/20 is gaining traction in DIY community, easy to work with, very strong and modifiable. This fellow is selling his converted van with 80/20. https://sprinter-source.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=75461
