We were going to put it in a 1975 trillium. We decided we could live with it sticking out 4 inches from the cabinet. Since we ordered it from camping world we took it to them to have it installed. We drove three hours to get to our 11:00 am appointment. They didn't look at it till 2:00 pm. They estimated it would cost over $700.00 to install it. I could make this a very long story...maybe some other time. We told them we would like to return the fridge and left. We wanted improvements done and would have spent the money but the guy they put working on it kept saying things like," it can't be done, I can't do that, this isn't my job," etc. The manager there was nice but the work is only as good as the guy doing it. So we decided to try our luck elsewhere. I think we may have been overly ambitious with starting with the fridge anyway. We need to get the new style propane tank and battery shelf on the tongue and battery and converter. Right now I'm back to considering a coolmatic.
I was afraid of the same thing when I found out our Scamp's fridge
was no longer available. What I found out was that if I raised the Norcold up, by putting it on 2x4s, it would fit. The reason was the wall of the Scamp
is curved and by lifting the fridge it went into the hole further. Some slight trimming of the foot/plate of the fridge and it went in! Whoo-Hoo! Go to my site and you can see I also re-did the tank and battery
shelf too. Those 12v coolers are O.K. IMO, but if it is 95 degrees out, it is only 65 inside the cooler. Trust me, a 65 degree beer is LAME.
There is an EXPENSIVE yet very versatile alternative:
I want one of these!
There are others, too.
