Need tiny fridge replacement help

We have a 1972 13 foot Boler. When we bought the Boler it had a tiny fridge from Princess Auto but they no longer carry it. It stopped working and we took it to a repair guy but the repair hasn't lasted and although the fan runs the fridge doesn't get cold. In summary we need a new one but can't find the size that will fit. The maximum dimensions that will fit are:
17 inches wide
16 inches deep
19 1/2 inches high

Does anyone have any suggestions of where we can look for another one? I have looked online at Camperland but no luck, and I have sent them an email and waiting to hear back. Any ideas or suggestions would be sooooo appreciated! Although we do take a plug in portable cooler I want the little fridge inside the boler, otherwise it's wasted space and may end up holding clothes which is sad.

Many thanks!!

Naomi

When we installed a dorm fridge in our Uhaul where the ice box had been I had to slightly enlarge the opening in the fiberglass cabinet area. Is this possible in your Boler?

Little Fridge

It's a problem to enlarge the opening where the fridge goes. Definetly cannot go higher or lower - lower the floor is right there and higher is the two burner propane stove. To the right is the bottom bunk and to the left is a cupboard with sink which is ultimately right snug up to the fridge. There is virtually no wiggle room. I guess it was the perfect size for the ice boxes that came with the original Bolers.

I also have just purchased a 1972 Boler and am thinking about changing out the fridge. Wouldn't the small fridge that Scamp sells as a replacement in their online parts section be suitable in size since Boler is basically the percursor to Scamp?
