I suppose if necesary I could just "integrate" everything myself and mount it all in one smallish, well ventilated, box. The only example I can think of would be the AC Propulsion AC-150 system.
Belktronix makes such a system. www.belktronix.com
It even includes BMS for Lead-Acid or Lithium battery packs.
Unfortunately, the charger is pretty wimpy at only 1200w and there have been a variety of other issues. I'm still hoping the new generation they are working on will fix all the issues and be a solid integrated package.
