Bay Star Frigidaire Refrigerator option

Curious if anyone has more information on this option, specifically:

1. What does it look like?
2. Is there an ice maker?
3. Pictures?

Still researching and deciding.

No one else has answered your questions, here's what I found using Google.
First, no ice maker, it's an 'apartment size' fridge.

The 10 cf Frigidaire is here:
Frigidaire 9.9 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer Apartment-Size Refrigerator FFTR1022QW

Here's a walk thru tour, with a black door Frigidaire:

We have the same small/apt size Frigidaire residential fridge in our Canyon Star. We are mostly in RV parks so I figured we could manage the all-elect need of the fridge with the inverter that Newmar provides and it does.

This fridge holds a LOT more than the typical Norfolk/Dometic RV fridge as the shelves are quite a bit deeper. The bottom shelf on the door can hold a gallon milk jug. The top shelf is also tall enough to hold a gallon milk jug.

However, if you could, I would heartily recommend getting the remote on/off for the inverter and mounting it in the control panel. Without it, we have to open the basement compartment and turn on the inverter which always seems to be when it's raining or something. We are contemplating adding it but not sure about fishing the wire between the inverter and the control panel. This has nothing to do with the fridge itself, of course.

We had believed the Newmar option spec that a residential fridge comes with extra batteries but NOT this one. We had separately also paid to upgrade the two house lead-acid 12v house batteries to four AGM 6v house batteries. We ASSUMED we'd get two more AGM 6v batteries for the fridge but Newmar says the batteries we have are plenty for the fridge. Hmph, would've been nice if they'd told us that ahead of time. So be sure to ask about it before you order it if it's a concern for you.

cheers
