Update: Made bathroom capable of using two types of portable toilets as some California state campgrounds insist on "tank" type toilets, though we prefer the bag type PET toilet and no dumping139209139210139211

Made front cabinetry over dinette with recessed LED lighting on both sides on top of windows and under center cabinet, so light level can be adjusted for the mood... 139213139214139226139225

Making a heat shield for the countertop from one of those lightweight camp stove wind shields, using wood to secure folding sections. This will be mounted under "lips" on the backsplash to prevent any damage to the foam wall.

Do you mind to share how did you make hard points for your cupboards attachment to foam wall and how is it working?

The hard points for my cabinets are embedded in the sides and ceiling by routing (or melting) out 3/4" deep pockets to match the blocking being used and then glued in place with Gorilla Glue.
139249139250
The blocks were held in place while curing with duct tape and push pins, in some cases.
139251139252
I found that setting the depth of my router to allow for the blocking and space for glue was best set up and tested until I found the level that would make flush supports. 139253

I also found that building the cabinetry into the walls was very strong when planned as part of the framing.139255
Grooving for embedding frame pieces was done with a router or the old HF soldering iron grooving tool. 139256139257
The cabinetry also strengthens the structure of the trailer when cured!

ScottE , that ’s Brilliant , and just about the only thing that’s yet to be fully utilized as part of the design itself , until now ;) ... cabinets as an integral part of the structure ... storage and support ...That’s just gotta’ be Strong !!! :o
