custom tower ideas? I need your help...
A friend of mine has an older RV he just picked up. He wants to put a keggerator in it. This will be his mobile man cave.

His idea is to have the tap tower over the sink, using the sink as a drip pan.

I'd like to make a custom tap tower for it. I don't see a reason for it to be the standard 3 inch tower size. it also doesn't have to be as tall as a standard tower if you can put your pint glass in the sink to pour a pint.

I am interested in any and all suggestion that you may have.

can you post a pic of the sink area so we can see the decor and the space requirements? How about if he built it into the wall?

Can't be built into the walls and still use the sink as a drip tray. I won't be able to post pics for a while, if I can at all....

it's a pretty small rv... He's in his mid 20's. not some rich old dude... :D

What class and model/year? Is there space for a fridge by the sink? Most RV's have the fridge opposite the sink.

Not sure on the year, I think it's from the 1980's. It looks 'sorta' like this...

The fridge is opposite of the sink. but there is a closet nearby that he was going to use to hold a jockey box or something. I don't know if he plans to put homebrew kegs or rent kegs. I'm guessing/hoping he'll go with three gallon corny kegs. Then we can build one of those Igloo cooler things and fit the keg/gas/ice into one neat little package.

It will be a bit of a pain because he'll have to unhook/flush the line after each use/trip but I don't know if a fridge will fit into the space and if he'll have power to it or not if it does fit.

He's trying to keep this whole thing under 300 bucks, I think....

Class C. Usually the storage lockers on the outside are wide and deep but too short. The closet or under sink might work.
Would a keg fit in the fridge? That would be the easiest way.
