    I happen to have a pair of those Honda gennys. In answer to your question, we can build for those. I would add vents for heat and air flow. Further, we could make a hold down that mates to the feet on the gennys. In this way, a rear vent could be located to allow for exhaust gas exit.
    We can do this. Email me at pete@camperlogic.com if you are interested.

    Just finished and delivered a Tray Pak for a customer out east. We have incorporated the stile rails into the actual tray for a low profile. Tray sits as low as possible on truck frame and includes a rear drawer for things like shovels and jacks.
    We loaded an S280 military enclosure on it for a trip to Mexico.

    We have made an integral ISO style hold down in each corner. Works with holding camper down. Fittings can be added when truck is without camper and in utility mode.

    Love this. I am looking for something just like this for my 2001 gmc 2500 longbed to put a flatbed camper on. Can you provide some info on cost and timing?

    I have another camper under construction. I have done this one with nearly 150 gallons water capacity in floor-100/50 fresh/gray in an effort to get center of gravity as low as possible. Tanks are constructed of 304 stainless steel and mounted on rubber isolators.
    I have also lightened the frame by using the furniture as a stressed member.
    The furniture is a composite of aluminum square tube and birch plywood-its strong and light in weight.
    We have built an enclosed aluminum electrical box that places all the heavy electrical stuff over the center of rear axle. This box is accessed from inside of camper body.
    Trying a build from inside out and finding it much much easier. Running electrical and plumbing is significantly easier this way. It allows for tidy arrangements. Progress on this one is swift. It is much less heavy than our previous unit.

    Looks great, nice work. Experience from building my own camper is that I would make sure to vent the electrical cabinet externally. The inverter and battery charger both generate a lot of heat, and they noticeably increase the temperature inside the truck when working hard. Not a problem in mild climates, but can be a pain in the tropics. In a perfect world I would still like the equipment to be accessed from the inside only, but would seal the access door and vent the cabinet well (perhaps actively) to the outside.

    Thanks for commenting. We too have experienced the heat that comes of big invertors. We have an aluminum front vent for the cabinet-a source for fresh air to come into electrical box. We are forcing air with small fams. The hot air exhausts up a "chimney" in an effort to duct warm air up. We are placing in a solar powered RV vent in roof to allow hot air to forcibly escape out through roof.

    Are the tanks heated at all?
