Which fridge

Got the old fridge out and measured the space. Best replacement options are Dometic model 2451 or Norcold N410. Virtually identical dimensions. Norcold costs $80 more. Any experience with either brand/model that might help me make a decision? Norcold freezer appears to be more insulated?

Decided to go with Norcold, mainly because taupe color looks more retro and top panel is slightly taller, which will require less cabinetry modification.

Tex,

We went with a larger N641.3F, 3 way, 2door. We have been very happy with Norcold. Not sure about the N410 but the doors on the N641 have changeable inserts. I cut a left over piece of black Formica I had from doing my counter tops and used it for my front inserts, but you can get as creative as you like. I thought some tie dyed material on poster board would be cool, or maybe a blown up photograph. Have fun!


-Dennis

I am going to use a sheet of maple ply, stained to match cabinets. Not very creative but will allow the new fridge to blend with the vintage interior.
