Trimming our larger replacement fridge

Hi....as I've seen on other threads, the new replacement Dometic fridge for our 1973 Trillium 1300 is going to be larger than existing. What sort of cosmetic solutions have others done to make this extra protrusion of 2-3" proud of the existing vertical face, look intentional? We've done a nice, full restoration of this trailer, and don't want the compromise the 'look' of the interior all because we can't get smaller fridges anymore. Unfortunately, our existing is beyond refurbishing. Thanks.

Hi Krista, not sure what you mean by "extra protrusion".

Scamp uses 1x? oak boards to fill the space between the frig. and the front cabinet. They use oak boards with the older oak standard cabinet doors. They rip the boards to fill the gap then made a frame, attached the frame to the cabinet, then they attached frig to the frame.

This photo shows the build out of wood trim that Eddie was speaking of above.

Our replacement fridge extends about 1 inch into thetrailer. We framed it a spacer made from 3/4 plywood and found some paint that matches the cabinets.

If you don't want the wood look you could try using white PVC trim for a spacer. Home Depot sells it and usually they have a good selection of widths.
