Short answer, it is slightly different sized hole. It is both slightly narrower and shorter. Long answer, when we bought this camper it was pretty close to being ready for the landfill (actually most would have said it was), most of the plywood floors we rotten enough to fall
through, rivets a mess, a 2 foot hole in the rear corner where the tire rim blew through the floor when it came apart at highway speeds, and a floppy axle
. This ended up being a major rebuild, but I am pretty good with fiberglass so the repairs were not that big of a deal, just time and an infusion of money. So, I had to fiberglass fillers on the top and bottom so the fridge fit well, then I painted the galley unit with 1 part polyurethane paint
(a marine paint
, I live aboard and cruise a sailboat). It was the only fridge I could find that was shallow enough, all the others we too deep for the hole. Since I was painting
the outside of the camper (by the way the color is too dark and I will repaint a lighter color, too hot in the desert) anyway (because of the tire rim hole repair) I also fiberglassed over the 3-way fridge vent panel as they were no longer needed and I felt detracted from the appearance of the camper.
We really like this little camper now and constantly get people asking about it. Kind of funny given the condition it was in when we got it.
