So the question still remains; What fridge does it come with standard? What fridge are they offering as the option?

All you have mentioned so far is an 8 cu/ft. versus a 12 cu/ft. fridge.

Well standard is the 8 cu norcold propane/electric version. It appears for $2,357 that I am just getting a larger 12 cu norcold propane/electric. The salesman told me residential style electric 4 door electric 12 cu ft. I will recontact him tomorrow. This should be interesting when I call his hand on it. Never assume, question everything!

Have you looked into the reputation of Jayco MH's? I would also check with another Jayco dealer to see if they charge that much for this option.

Actually that clears up a lot. He is talking about a the norcold 1200 series. Yes I believe it is around that price range. It is just a larger propane electric. It looks like a residential but it is not. It is an ordinary absorption type RV fridge. Not a compressor type electric.

By the way, not all salesman are morons. Some of them actually live the lifestyle and have a clue. .

Frankly, I wouldn't give you 2 cents for a Norcold 12 cu/ft. fridge. In fact they would have to PAY me $2400 to take it.

My advice would be to save the $2400 and stick with the 8 cu/ft. unit which has a far greater reputation for less problems OR use the money and have them install an 18 cu/ft. residential fridge which will fit into the same opening as the Norcold 1200 with just a little height differential.

X2 ... the 8cf will probably be adequate. It's very close to an apartment size reefer internally ... many of us old folks grew up with roughly that size in a house. You may need to shop a wee bit more frequently and choose different items ... for instance, buy 1/2 gal milk instead of gallon.

$2400 in your pocket buys a lot of fuel or tires when you need them ...
