Back hatch cover

I need to put in some commercial undercounter refrigeration. Dont worry... I wont be traveling much with it...at least I dont think.

I cant get it through the front door or windows so I need to make a hatch to stick it through.

My focus was making a back hatch (between the lights). Between the lights...it is about 38 inches I am guessing from the looks of it. I have not taken the bathroom out yet to really know the structure of it does anyone know if this back area is an important piece to the construction of the AS.

I figured sice there is a door back there anyway...I could possibly make it big enought to stick a refer through...the refer will be about 34-36 inches high.

Why not get an apartment sized refrigerator, if you want a standard household type unit?
They are narrower than the big ones, and should fit in the front door. It should be easier and cheaper than cutting a bigger hole somewhere to make a standard-sized unit fit.

It has to be commercial grade...health dept wont allow that.

Our Overlander's door was 28" wide at its widest point.

The 68 measures 26"wide...
I need commercial refrigeration because it recovers proper temps faster.
