We have the small Dometic and it keeps up with our needs.
I don't know if this speaks to the build quality of this brand... but one night, we had it on a table outside our Casita
, when the raccoons decided they could use some ice as part of their nightly scavage. They pulled the machine off the table and outside the awning
area. They were very noisy about it.
We had to do a major disinfecting of the unit, but it continues to work fine and didn't even get a dent.
We also had the standard size Emerson. It was great while it worked, about three years. Customer assistance was virtually non existent.
I do know, we have gotten so used to having one, we hope we won't have to be without one. Terry
