Don't need the two door stuff in the door at home so why would we want it in the MH? Extra space just leaves room for more mystery packages later. As it stands we see everything every day so it gets eaten. ;-) Would take all gas before all electric.

Hey WyoFree you forgot about the additional freezer/refrigerator down below!

Bigger is better, more more more!!

(I know, it's not taking up space in the kitchen)

Never been a fan of gas lighting ...

Residential refrigerators, multiple opposing slides, power shades, flat screen TV's, radiant heated tile floors... next thing they'll want is indoor plumbing, fireplaces and his-n-hers reclining chairs.

Kids these days, huh? Trying to show off by how much "stuff" they have, am I right? Because that's absolutely the only reason anyone could ever want a 22 cf Electrolux side-by-side with ice and water in the door, a wine cooler, and a drawer freezer below with its own separate ice maker taking up all that room in a 42' rig with 420 sf of living space.

I mean, seriously... who do these showoffs think they're impressing? Certainly no one in this forum, that's for sure. Sheesh.

The answer's easy. Refrigerator enthusiasts.

No fireplace here. That's just crazy and over the top. Took that out and replaced it with a 24 bottle, perfect 56F wine cooler. Mounted on its on isolated spring system with separate PSW inverter to prevent possible bottle shock and temperature variation while traveling down Interstate 10.

In 2005 we ordered our 40' Travel Supreme fifth-wheel with a 22 cu ft Amana household refrigerator. It was a $4000 option that included the refrigerator, an inverter, and four 6 volt batteries. That was the same cost as a 12 cu ft RV refrigerator. Best decision we ever made.

We were full-timing and not trying to outdo one another on how little we could get by was not our objective. Our household refrigerator can run all the time without having the propane on.

We just bought s Bounder with an 18 cu ft household refrigerator and that was one of our selection decisions. We are going without water and ice in the door and the 4 cu ft less is acceptable.

If we were boondockers, perhaps an RV style refrigerator would have some more value but then again, if we were boondockers, we would add solar and the propane mode would be less important.

To us, do we need the double space provided by a household refrigerator? Yes.

We went from a 9 CF Dometic to a 22 CF Jenn Air but the DW STILL had to have a freezer in the storage bays!

We had an 18' Samsung in our last coach and a 21' Whirlpool in our current coach. I find that they were both a good size because we end up carrying all the food the others we RV with don't want to spoil in their propane refers!

Oh yeah....and the icemaker comes in handy when they need to borrow ice!

We have a 13.5 cubic ft domestic electric/propane unit. It is certainly big enough but it really doesn't hard freeze things like ice cream (it is 1 year old). However I do like having the ability to run on propane. Probably going to add a basement fridge/freezer (dometic or ARB or if I get a bit crazy a National Luna) to handle the real freezer needs.

Wow! Some real slamming of those that dare to have a residential fridge in their RV. And dang, then some add more outrageousness by doubling down and going BIG size fridge too. The nerve of some people...

You right a check, and you get what you want. No one else's business.

OK, so I clearly stated that IMO - do what you want, and let others do as they want.

That being said, I did hang on and spend some money to retain our Norcold 1200. I wanted the propane option for boon docking, but also wanted a safe fridge. Spent more on making out Norcold 1200 safe, then it would have cost to buy a residential fridge. Ran with this for about four years, but around year three, I add a larger battery bank up to 800AH of Lifeline's, and 1200W of solar. Used it for a large trip, and learned that I had more then enough contingency power to cover a residential fridge. So, my need to maintain a propane option for boon docking was now out voted by the wife wanting more refrigerator space. So, we went to the Samsung fridge too. After about 15 months with it, wish we had done this at the start. Saved the only on the Norcold modifications!

Now heck, those of you that want to make fun of what people have in their rigs, really need to get on those that have double couches. Now that is really crazy, why they should be outlawed from all campgrounds... !

Come on gang. I like HiFi, and I've spent a great deal of effort and more funds on equipping our coach with good 2 channel stereo equipment and speakers. Others could care less about music, and are just as happy with their MP3 butchered music playing over their phone speaker.

To each their own... go have some fun, and if you see something that does not really fit what you want, oh well, you don't own it, so you don't need to worry about it!

(While some of this was a little bit of a poke at some of the comments in this thread. It really was intended as mostly spoofing the thread in general. I suspect that some of the threads comments I read were also meant that way too...)

Best to all, and run with whatever you want,
Smitty

A residential refer with an ice maker in the freezer. Even at our house we don't buy ice that dispenses through the door.
