With the interior paneling all in, it's time to start on the cabinets.
This is the support framing for the counter top and the icebox.

Test fitting the icebox.

Posted Image

This is the the icebox that was in the camper and it came with a layer of Styrofoam molded right around it.

Posted Image

The frame for the icebox is finished off on the side with a section of paneling.
I mounted a 12 volt light on the side also.
I then added more more Styrofoam to the inside of the icebox frame.
It has a 1 inch thick layer of foam on the top, sides and bottom and 3 inches added to the back.

The icebox door is taken apart and the old piece of paneling was removed.

Posted Image

I put in a new piece of paneling and re-assembled the door.

The old counter top in the camper already had a section of the counter the was hinged so it could be lifted up.
There was room for a small Colman cook stove under this part of the counter top.
I trimmed the counter top down so it fit next to the icebox frame.

Here's how it looks with the hinged part of the counter top in place.

Posted Image

I cut a square section out of the table top that was in the camper.

Posted Image

This piece is fastened to the underside of the counter top.
The table top had an aluminum trim strip around edge so I used a section of that to trim the front edge here.
The piece from the table top will have the sink mounted in it.
This way we can have a nice counter area to work on and then we can lift it up to use the sink.

Ray, as usual, an excellent job refurbishing the camper. Good to see you adding more insulation as you can. I'm hoping this brings as much enjoyment as your efforts have been in fixing it up. May have more people taking the 'grand tour' than looking at your tractors.:rofl2:
