Actually, if I had to do it over, I would probably get the smaller fridge. The 6.2 cubic foot is only about half full even after we just visited the grocery store. Of course, there is only the two of us.

I like the looks of your "U", Jim, it's sort of what I envisioned when ordering Escaping Reality.

Hi: cpaharley2008... Now you got me thinkin'. What if I made a filler board like yours, but put some 1X3" poplar ribs under it, so it could sit on the floor also? That would serve two purposes... extra lounging space as pictured... and raise the floor around the legs of the table when dining!!! Alf

I'm pretty happy with what I ordered. Of course that might be because I added almost every option Escape offered at the time. I do wish I had the bathroom window...

Alf, this sounds good to me, too. Would you cut round holes in the filler board for the pedestals?

Also don't forget you need to haul your Extreme Cooler along .

Having an RV refrigerator that's only half packed is more efficient that an RV refrigerator that's overly packed. They don't work like your refer in your sticks 'n bricks home...

That's right but you may need it for meat ,milk etc. or you will get sick if it can't stay on at least 40 degrees at 5
