1983 Scamp fifth wheel reno - fridge question

Hello all,

I'm currently rebuilding a 1983 19' scamp fifth wheel. Currently entirely gutted. No walls, no liner, no insulation, no wiring. Just fiberglass and wood floor. I've replaced and fibreglassed new floor in upper bed, working on front lower floors now. Water leak though front window rotted out floors, couldn't be saved.

Anyway hoping to put in a two door fridge, but it's got to fit through the Scamp door. Only option I've food is the one that used to be listed on the Scamp website Dometic RMD8555, but found out it's an absorption fridge and I'd rather have a three way compressor fridge. Anyone know of a make/model fridge that'll fit through the scamp door ~21".

Upshot as the trailer is gutted I'm taking the opportunity to redesign the interior. Bathroom should work better wit he redesign.

Thanks,
David

I don't believe there is a three way compressor fridge, at least not one that I have seen, usually dual voltage like 12/120 v
the 3 ways are generally gas, 12/120v and they are absorption type.
I put in a Norcold N3150 during my Trillium upgrades, it fit the same depth as my original, And I have been impressed with the performance to date. even kept ice cream in 35*C weather, it's a two door, and personally I like it

Thanks Joe, you are correct about the 3 way. Thanks for the recommendation on the Norcold N1350. I has been replaced by the Norcold N4150 and has appropriate dimension to fit. Strange how when I went to their website earlier this one did not come up.
Cheers.
