Wink refrigerator help?

Hi,

Just bought a 1979 13' Scamp. It currently has no frig. or icebox.

I really want to add a frig. that is taller than the height of the kitchen counter.

Any ideas out there? Can I remove the ledge from the bottom of the kitchen or is it structural? I only need a few inches.

Thanks!

I'm not sure what ledge you are talking about. But the bottom of the cabinet is the wheel well in the back and the floor around that. I don't see a ledge to cut. If you mean the lip at the front of the cabinet I would not mind cutting that out. In fact I have cut mine out a little when I removed the furnace and reconfigured the area below the stove top for a microwave and storage.

I'm probably calling it the wrong thing. When I walk into the camper, the floor is lower in the middle. The dinette/bed is up on a platform as is the kitchen area. It's like a 4-5" ledge at the bottom. The wheel well is on the side where the sink is. The right side is where an icebox or something used to be. The refrigerators I've been looking at all need just a little bit more room from a height perspective. That's why I wondered if I can cut that ledge out and let the frig. sit flush with the center floor. I hope I'm making sense!

If your talking the 5" or so of fiberglass that is under the standard fridge you can cut it down - I did and added a door under the fridge for access to the free space under the fridge - Scamp also offers a door under the fridge as an option so processed with little fear.

If your talking about the raised floor that the cabinets sit on in the kitchen then do not cut as that is structural - if you look under the trailer you will see its actually the floor. Cut it and you will be looking at the ground.

If you are wanting a taller fridge you may want to look at relocating it over to where the tall closet is - not sure if its wide enough though.

Carol,

Thank you so much! As I feared, it's structural. I'll start looking at putting it where the closet is. Will need to do more research...

I really appreciate the advice from those in the know.
