I like your approach also! As for the electrical box, it sounds like you used a standard renovation type box that has the flip out wings used to grab the wall surface.
Here is what my order looked like from Forest River
RECEPT 10-10016A $5.76 EA
WHITE SNAP ON BACK 10-19343A $2.52 EA
DÉCOR PLATE FOR RECEPT 10-10017A $.80 EA
The plate was extra and wasnt needed. Not sure why they sent that. I thought it was needed and it wasnt. I ordered from FR because I wanted to match up what was in there already. If I had known where to get a box with the "flip out" wings I would have did that instead of going thru FR. Do you know where to find them besides FR? Electrician friend of mine says he hasnt seen anything like that before and must be a "camper" thing.
I thought about tapping in elsewhere just as you are thinking but decided against because adding another circuit will keep things intact for any future owner of this camper. I have not used the electric water heater either so it would have been possible to tap in there. Ultimately I decided against as it was actually rather easy to add a circuit and only a few more dollars. I think whatever you do will be fine. I just know that the circuit is going to be nice to have and for more than just fall camping. Good luck with your mod.
