Look at the specifications for a Samsung, RF197ACRS to see if it will fit. It is 24 1/4 inches deep which is counter depth for some motorhomes.

you have a single door- and want to go side by side. this will entail some major cabinet mods. I would go with the 10 cf Whirlpool from Lowes. Around 400 bucks- and the last 5 coaches I have had, that's the route I took.

We had a single door Dometic and replaced it with a 12 cf Frigidaire - $491.00. It was an almost perfect fit. Agree that you'll have to do a lot of mods to fit a side-by-side.

Since we never dry camp, I did not have any inverters.

This is the link to see the specs for the Samsung refrigerator. It is 18 cu ft, so it is small than you might think.
Specs - French Door RF197ACRS | Samsung Refrigerators
