FWIW I suspect refrigerators are like Inverters as in a wide variation of the definition of "need". We get by with a smaller one.

If it was a problem we would load a chest super cooler with a mix of frozen and just needs to be cold for a few days and leave it alone for the first half of the week then move it into the consume soon stream after a few days of consumption made space. I'd expect the frozen would still be soft frozen and the milk or whatever cold but not frozen. We do not stash beer or many soft drinks in the refrigerator.

No problem... we have an 8 cuft in the 5er.... it seems half empty. We had a 6 cuft in the old TT that always seemed very full for 3 adults and 2 kids

You should be fine. We never run out of refrigerator space (it does get tight at times when we have leftovers, though). We found freezer space to be the biggest issue for us. We're full timers and found out that only one of the two euro-recliners ever got used. So we got rid of that and put a 3.5 cubic foot chest freezer in its place - problem solved. Can now have ice cream that's actually frozen instead of soft. We can also buy meat when we find it on sale and not think about cramming it into the RV freezer. We don't run it on an inverter when traveling. We've been 6 hours on the road in 90+ degree heat and everything is still frozen solid when we stop for the day. We also have a stand-alone ice maker and keep ice in a gallon zip-lock bag in the RV freezer.

If you take what you need then you will be fine. Don't take all the extra stuff that most of us do, those things that you never use.
Simplify and you will be happy.
