Thoughts on used Norcold 6052

My fridge is shot in my 73 Safari and I have taken an almost new Norcold 6052 out of a wrecked RV. It is a little taller but is it worth trying to make the Norcold fit in the Airstream vs. buying a new one? Anyone had a similiar expreience?

I replaced the Dometic with a new Norcold in my Excella in August 2008 ( I have been very pleased with the new one.

It was a little taller too, so I had to change a couple of things, detailed in the thread. Quality seems comparable, if not superior, to the Dometic.

Long term, I am pleased.
