Residential Refrig Cost?

Two reputable RV repair/renovation facilities in Lakeland Florida are estimating $2400 - $2500 for labor to install a residential refrigerator in my 2008 CC Tribute. To those who have researched or have done the conversion, does that sound like a reasonable price?

At first blush it sounds pretty high, how ever, it depends on the size of the frig, the size of the hole and the amount of work evolved in the project. These conversion jobs are essentially all different and the shops tend to give themselves wiggle room. Since you will be in that area, get a price from Alliance Coach in Wildwood. They do good work and have a lot of experience in doing that job.

About 3 years ago I paid $2100 labor to have residential installed in a Winnebago DP so they are in ballpark. Mine involved some cabinet mods/wood work.

If there's major cabinetry work required the numbers could be correct. But if it's just a remove and install the numbers are way too high. I installed my Samsung myself and it wasn't a big deal, but no cabinet work was required. The new fridge fit inside the original opening with a just small amount of work required.

I had mine install by Kustom Coach Works in Junction City, Or along with a Magnum 2812 PSW inverter and control board for $725 (6.5hrs), like Barney not a lot of cabinet work.
This is not my install but it is the same.

We just did ours and it took two of us about six hours to remove the old one and install the new. A lot of that time was spent measuring and planning. Having now done it I think we could do the job in under 3 hours. $2500 sounds really high!

Most shops charge between $2000.00 to $2400.00. It is a bit of work, but not rocket science. I have installed two myself, one mine , one for a friend. Any chance you may know someone who could help you do it yourself?

Could part of that cost be just getting it into the coach? Some coaches require the removal of a window to get the fridge in. Add a bit of wood work, I believe required on your CC? (Our 2004 Allure will require he removal of two lower drawers, and installing a new bottom to rest the fridge on.)

And, labor rates are different in different parts of the country. They do add up.

Best of luck on wherever the swapout occurs,
