Samsung RF18. Came standard in my Bounder but I do like the Samsung design and compressor. I have a larger Samsung in my S&B.

Don't know...not on the build sheet and not in the brochure. Measure the hole and see what fits.

Same for me. I believe the actual capacity is like 17.6, and they round up to 18 nominal. Plenty big enough for me, especially vs the Notcold 1200 that was nominal 12 cu ft, the Samsung replaced.

Samsung model 197. Fit the old space just fine, came thru the window just barely, with doors off. French doors, bottom freezer, now in service 4 years. Recommended!

The Samsung 197 fit in mine with only a little modification - had to lower the floor a couple of inches. Actually have the same refrigerator in the house and pretty neat because when we travel the fridge "stuff" is the same as home. Spouse thinks they are GREAT!

Seems like most people who are replacing their 4-door Norcold are limited to a 33' wide counter depth fridge because it closely matches the allotted space. When I checked 1-1/2 years ago, I could only find one French door, 33", CD model available. The Samsung RF18 which replaced the discontinued RF 197. I think most of the larger 22-23 CF fridges are factory installed because the manufacturer designed the space around it.

We chose the smaller GE 14.6 vs the Samsung RF18 mostly for cost reasons ($550 vs $1250) but also because the freezer drawer on the RF18 would not have opened quite all the way. A minor inconvenience, but we didn't really need the bigger fridge anyway. Of course, any fridge soon fills up and rarely do you hear anyone complain of "too much refrigerator".
