Although there are many things that MIGHT survive such an event. NO you may not assume anything other than stuff like Pillows will survive.

Anchored or not if you rollover the frame of the tralier (orMH) will likely be torqued so if the fridge is anchored it may be as well and if not,,Well Then there are other causes of damage.

If anything metal framed (or wood framed) survives consider yourself lucky.

Of course I understand things are going to be falling. I do know a little about physics. A refrigerator is substantially larger than anything else I can think of though. I did think that a regular RV fridge would be likely to stay in its spot, but according to what I've read here, that isn't necessarily true so no reason to choose one over the other. My main concern was a refrigerator falling on a grandchild. Not whether "stuff" survived.

Most class A motor homes have no built in safety features to protect occupants in the event of a serious crash. No crumple zones, roll cage structures, etc., not even airbags. The best safety feature is a safe, attentive defensive driver operating well maintained equipment. Spent 35 years responding to all types of accidents on the interstate, and I can tell you that our RV's do not hold up very well in a crash.

That's the conclusion I've come to.
