What Fridge in 1974 Tradewind?

Our recently purchased "74" Tradewind has a full size dometic refrigerator but most of the pictures I have seen of "74" Tradewinds have a smaller 3/4 size refrigerator. Has ours been replaced or were the larger/taller units an option back then? Thanks!

The Tradewind I have (73) has a tall fridge like yours, Dometic. I belive the shorter fridge was possibly standard, and the tall one an upgrade option. MPJ

My 75 Trade Wind has the shorter fridge. It's a Dometic RM-67 and is 39 1/2 inches tall.

I bought my 74 argosy 28ft from the original owner. He gave me the sales sticker that was in the window when he bought it.
The 7.5 CU FT refrigerator was a $150 option.
Model RH 76
Mine still works great. However I did have to remove the spider web from the burner.

Large versus small refrigerator...

Hi Roadrunner,

As with tiger, my '76 Argosy came with the RM76 Dometic refrigerator. However, the PO replaced it with a smaller unit. I'm guessing due to cost.
