Went to Home Depot and got a quote for 6 standard under the counter cabinets by Kraft Made. 6 cabinets... $6,000; and 3 didn't even have drawers.

Are you kidding me? What wooden box costs $1,000. All of these cabinets were standard, meaning nothing special. All of the parts are fabricated with CNC machines.

Anybody know where I can get a good deal on cabinets?

I need the 5 bolts put back into the periphery of my brake drum so the speedometer will work again. I've called 20 machine shops here in town and no one can do it. The old ones broke off, but there's plenty of meat left for 5 new holes every 72 degrees. Anyone know of a machine shop here in town that wants the job.

CliffCo Heavy Equipment can do the job, but they want $400 for 4 hours of work. If you have an Indexer and an End Mill it would take about 20 minutes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We first came here for a rally with the Sunshine Statesmen GMC Motorhome Club, and enjoyed it so much we returned this year, and will likely do so again for a short stay next winter. They honor the Passport America discount on premium spots for a maximum of five days. Given the location in the Keys and the resort style ammenities available, we think the $44/night, all in, is a great value: many places in the Keys will charge far higher. We had no problem with ths size of our site, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The only ding would be the typical WiFi challenges that so many RV places have: spotty coverage and slow connection, but good enough to do basic web surfing during off peak times. The pool is very cute, they have a calendar of activities, and the protected harbor has nice snorkeling, especially if you want to see a huge number of florida lobster.  We have stayed twice and wrote up both stays on our travel blog, but the more detailed review is here:

Probably our favorite RV site in the South East.  The only down side is how difficult it is to actually make reservations: even 11 months in advance they fill up within seconds of becoming available.  We usually rely on the "check every day for cancellations" method, and it has worked so far, but only for short stays.  The park is several miles of beaches and seagrass areas with the remants of a bridge providing extraordinary sunset views.  The protected swimming cove has one of the best beaches in the Keys, and when the seas are particularly calm the other side of the island has indescribably wading: knee keep crystal clear water for a hundred yards out.  Very limited WiFi available on the deck near the store.  Several great geocaching spots. We have a more through write up with pictures at our travel blog:

We spent New Years at NAS Key West.  Their RV campgrounds are available for active and retired military, and federal employees.  There are actually two camping areas: Sigsbee Annex is located miles from downtown Key West (or much of anything other than base housing).  It containes 92 full hook up sites at $23 a night, plus a large number of dry camping "overflow" sites for $13 a night.  When the hook up sites are full the hosts initiate a rotation system so no one is left dry camping for more than a couple of weeks.  The other campground is at Trumbo Point, located just a few blocks from downtown Key West and Mallory Square.  All of the limited number of spots at Trumbo are dry camping, $13/night. 

Since hook up spots were all full when we arrived, we elected to stay at Trumbo since it is much closer to downtown and the tourist areas.  The campground is a well marked grass field with reasonable spacious and level sites, very few trees, clean bathrooms and showers, even a pool ($1 entry fee).  The main advantage of Trumbo Point is that the back gate in the Coast Guard section of the base is just blocks from downtown Key West. Just make sure that when you exit you ask the guard when they will lock it up for the night so you don't get caught outside and have to make the much longer hike around to the front gate. 

We have a more detailed write up about our experience at Trumbo Point at our travel blog, feel free to read and comment there.  http://shellonwheels.net/2015/01/07/and-we-begin/

This is it.  As far as I know, started by Mike A Kadlitz, part of his business of Bus Conversions Magazine, BCM, he also sold buses.  Other people run things now.  That's all I know, perhaps the moderator of the board will give the official story.

I keep seeing and hearing about MAK bus boards. Can someone tell me what this is. When I google it this site comes up. Is it a different name for Bus Conversion BB?
