refrigerators

I find the usual RV refrigerators a bit stuffy/dorky looking. Are there alternative styles or at least doors and hinges to jazz the look up a bit? Craig Dorsey's
(Airstream Dreams) newest project appears to have a rather fine looking frig unit in it - I'll try to run that down as well but was wondering if anyone on the forum has any info.

I have a GE "apartment style" in my Airstream. It only runs on 120V though. So far it has worked great for us. When boondocking we have ice in it and use an Honda generator to keep it going. If you keep your fridge full it holds cold better than if it is half full.

The front panels of many RV refridgerators are replaceable. At least as far as that goes, your only limit is imagination and available materials.

most of the fridges built in the last twenty years have replaceable front door panels that slide out if you remove one of the trim pieces. you can replace them with any decorating idea that you choose that will slide back into the trim pieces.

frig

I checked out Phred's site which led me eventually to this site that had some pretty interesting info on frig choices

http://www.backwoodssolar.com/index.htm

There are two possibilities with 110v and 12v but interestingly, no propane. Sounds good however.....
