Remodel in search of a new fridge and AC

Hi There,
I have a 1977 20' Minuet Argosy that we are doing a total remodel on. So far we have gutted the inside and stripped the walls back to the aluminum (still in the process). All the electric and plumping works as far as we can tell. We are looking for a decent priced gas/electric fridge 5.5 cu. ft. and a roof AC 15,000BTU. Its sounds like Palomino out of MI is good on prices?? ANyone have any recommendations or suggestions to steer us in the right direction? (this is all new and exciting to us)

Thanks in advance!!!

Welcome to the forums, Kelly!

We got our A/C unit from Family RV in Florida, but they ship from a warehouse here in Ontario, CA. They sell on Ebay, but you can call them directly too. Their price was way better than Palomino for the A/C unit. We got a 15K btu, but we have a 31' Sovereign. You probably only need the 13,5k unit. We bought a Carrier which has been really great for us. We didn't get the low profile because it was more expensive. They come with or without the heat strip. We opted for without as we already have a heater. It's a personal choice. As far as the fridge goes I have no personal experience, but have heard that Palomino has good prices. Shop around, do a search for RV refrigerators online. There's a lot of places that sell them. Some even sell used/salvaged/refurbished ones.
