The "Friday" photos were not being taken on Fridays. Maybe there will be some tomorrow.

Here is a picture of the new 5.0 cuft fridge going in the 19's. Hope this helps! . Sorry it's sideways, couldn't figure out how to get it right side up.


I fixed it... Donna D.

Brian I am curious . I measured my doorway and have a good 22 in . I will be going to camping world soon and I was going to measure the Americana frig if one removed the door . Would you then be able to get the Americana in the door . Just wanted to know . My frig is now satisfactory now . I just will file this information away . Pat

That would be good information to know Pat! And I would appreciate it. While my single door works just fine too, Ten Forward is my forever trailer and would consider the Americana. I do not like the newer two door. The idea of needing to open the door to change the temperature is a major design flaw (IMHO). Why when the temperature is going up would you want to open the door so you can use the controls? Nutz. The Americana has the controls on the outside frame, just like the single door

Here's what the manuals show for dimensions, existing RMX8555 and the new XM2663 per Rbryan4. Note the widths.

22" = 558.8 mm

I don't understand? Which of the three width measurements is it?


486 mm = 19.1338583 inches
525 mm = 20.6692913 inches
632 mm = 24.8818898 inches

I agree with Donna that it's nuts to have the controls on the inside of the refrigerator. Are y'all saying that the one in the 21 foot will have the controls on the inside or the outside?

Donna, it looks to me like the first two are the RMx series (two sizes), and the last one is the XM2663.

486 mm = 19.1338583 inches
525 mm = 20.6692913 inches
632 mm = 24.8818898 inches

The controls on my two-door Dometic (trailer was new in Sept 2015) are indeed only available by opening the door. I agree it's nuts. What were the designers thinking?

I have no idea about the fridges ETI will use in the 2017 models.

If I'm not mistaken (which, knowing me I am) the new fridge looks a lot like the fridge we had in our 2007 Casita. As far as cooling goes, if they are similar, it did very well.

However, while Donna may not like the controls on the inside of the door, depending on the height placement (the Casita's was a 4 cubic foot fridge and was lower) we found that a number of times, we would brush up against the controls and turn the fridge off without knowing it. Of course, the Casita is much narrower than the Escape, which often necessitated someone turning sideways and leaning up against something to let the other person get by. So in thinking about it, maybe there will be no issue...
