would it be possible to see pictures of your inverter/converter set up? Where did you end up putting all this? Again I must say you did a fantastic job with your Burro.
I put the inverter under the table area. It was pretty easy to set up. Cut the hole and followed the instructions for the wiring. I chose a 3 stage 25 amp inverter/converter. Did you need to see the actual wiring ? or where I put it ?

Wow I love all of these mods. I was wondering what you have done to the ceiling, it appears to be wood not carpet (I think a see a reflection). It looks great. I like the stainless, and material choices. I like the inverter setup best. I will be doing this to both of our campers , wish I had thought of this long ago.

Thanks, I wanted a different look so I removed the carpet on the ceiling and used epoxy to place small wood blocks on the ceiling . I then stained thin maple and cut it to fit. There was a lot of trail and error and I still have to finish the trim. The inverter set up works great, and was pretty easy to install once all the brainstorming was done.

where did you get your voltmeter? It fits right in and doesn't look so dang industrial.

I have a voltmeter staring me in the face at work all day, and even tho it's a necessary evil in a trailer, I would rather it be as inconspicuous as possible. I camp to get away from work...

It is a voltmeter from kragen auto, 21 bucks and you can choose from 4 different backlit colors. I installed a toggle switch to turn it on as needed so it wouldn't be a constant draw on the battery. You dont have to hook up the light , that would eliminate the draw on the battery but it looks better and it's easier to read at night.

I love the wood look. I have just started to replace the floor in my 1982. I will likely top off with a laminate floor, matching new cabinet doors, and now a ceiling to complete the wood look. Mine is so rough right now, it really helps to see that there is hope. Please keep posting pictures as your continue with your mods. The inspiration is great.

We are fortunate that the Burro is a labor of love, and we have another camper to use. I doubt I will get much use this summer from the burro, but hopefully by fall it will rebuilt to a usable level. I had always enjoyed moding our campers but having purchased a 2008 Roo in the fall, my wife told me hands off while under warranty. So I went out and found another "project".
