replacing old fridg with 9.7 cu ft elec

I would like to replace my old fridge in my 1969 OL with a 9.7 cuft elec. I would also like to be able to run this fridg with my truck 12V system while on the road. What size inverter do I need and what size wire do I need and what kind of switching system is available,
Thanks so much
Dave

the answer is

there is a reason why refers in travel trailers are propane. Conversion to a house type electric unit is asking for all sorts of functional issues (starting with durability) and will lower the value of the camper.

The reason being that you can use them on the road and while rving without electric. You can get a nice house type refrig for around $400. They cool down much faster than a rv refrig. With the money you save you can purchase a generator or inverter to run it where there is no electric. My next refrig will be a house type.

I have traveled over 4000 miles camping at state parks along the way and my 9.2 cu ft refridge has worked just fine. I plug it in at night when I stop and everything has stayed cold and frozen. Thanks
