RM 2410 and 2510 Freezer Door Widths

Since I started work on my '57 Caravanner two years ago, I've hoped to be able to reuse my old Marvel Fridge door in front of a new 2 way Dometic. It's a great 50's door, clunks solidly when closed, and has a really cool latch. It looks like I can make either a Dometic RM2410 or RM2510 work in the space I have in the cabinet, removing the Dometic door, and facing it with the Marvel and its frame.

The only real catch I can see with whether or not the freezer doors will clear the width of the Marvel's door frame. My tape measure says I've got 18.75" of width to work with.

Could someone with access to either of those Dometic models tell me what the width of the freezer door is?

Thanks,
steve

Thanks Lew. I've been there and I'm good with the overall dimensions. What I'm trying to find is the width of the small freezer door inside the fridge and I haven't found anywhere online to find that as yet.

cheers,
steve
