Silly Question: What fridge was originally in my RV? :D

We bought this old 1990 26' class C Fleetwood Jamboree Rallye (on a Chevy C30 chassis). A previous owner put in a Euro-Gold AC-only fridge. I'm looking to re-install a refurbished LP/AC fridge back into it. The problem is, I have no idea what the original fridge was that was in it. The enclosure opening is about 50H x 22W x ~24D. Or should I not even consider putting an LP fridge back in? I see lots of problems with them. We usually have shore power, but when we're moving, traveling across the country, it would be nice to have it run on LP to keep it cool. Suggestions? Opinions?

Having had both and now have a Jenn Air home unit I would NEVER go back to a propane/electric unit UNLESS I was going to boondock for weeks on end.

It might be easier to install a couple of good batteries (GC2 or Group 31) and an appropriate sized inverter and run the existing refrigerator off the inverter.
