Yes, if you go tot he top where it says GALLERY, then scroll down to VIEW MORE, and then down to Tote N Tarry, you'll see a photo of our trailer where we removed the fridge and placed the porta-potty inside. I think this was before we constructed the door. If you can't find it, then I'll try to make a copy and attach it to a message here.

As you can see, once you remove the fridge, there is a lot of room for storage or anything else you can think of. This was before the door and port hole additions. Filbert

Yep, I'll have a bit more room since fridge is not under stove - it's next to it. ( and sink is on opposite side). Probably come up with some sort of shelving and some sort of storage accessed by refrigerator vents.

Well finally got her back in the garage to prep for summer and here's where the fridge stands:

I was amazed how easy it disconnected and slipped out!

Designed and built storage that would also have storage for that awkward skinny door next to the fridge hole:

Built it in two pieces- the bottom 'tray' box slipped in and sits at the same height as the wheel well so the box and shelves above it sit level.

Just need to trim it all out, add shelf lips, and add a bungee across the openings..... The SO gets her more storage and I was even able to recycle the working fridge to a forum member.... Good deal all around

That looks sweet and that extra storage will come in handy. I just put a new fridge in as the old one was not working. What a job! I thought about the simplicity of a good cooler, but a lot of the places we go ice isn't easily available. I like going off grid, and with a tank of propane, getting ice is a thing of the past. the mew fridge doesn't make ice, but we've pretty much learned to like drinking cold water (and an occasional cold beer or glass of wine) instead of just about anything else.

I really like the look of that floor!

Take Care,
Steve

Window AC

I plan on putting a window AC in the space. Do I need to do anything special with the wires from the battery? Just cap them off? Thanks

Hi Summer Scamp!
We have removed our fridge also. We are weekenders. We took out the dorm sized fridge that didn't work very well. Not replacing that as we have a Yeti Cooler to tote around. We have removed the cabinet housing the fridge and stove top with oven (took all of it out). Currently Bill is patching the outside vent holes (fiberglassing). For the inside we are going to build another bench with storage beneath. The top of the bench will fold out to expand our sleeping space (so we don't have to carry around an extra piece of wood anymore). Progress pics on our thread 1993 Scamp 16' repair and remodel - see the last few pages. Will continue posting pics.
