    Can anybody recommend a covered box (or a box / subpanel combination) in which I can mount a bunch of outlets?

    I want to have at least:

    2 x NEMA 14-50
    4 x NEMA 5-20


    Would be wonderful if I can just run a single 100A 4-wire cable run to it and it provides all the outlets from it. Does anything like that exists?


    PS: I don't want to use 4 or 6 individual boxes, because it looks hokey.

    Also I recommend a good electrician be consulted about this.

    No, because the enclosure is rated at only 100A, and 2x 14-50 and 4x 5-20's would exceed that.

    A small panel with some small rigid or EMT nipples and individual outlet boxes connected to it is the way that it's done in the commercial space.
