Tray for 4.3 Fridge

I have done several mods to our 4.3 fridge and thought I would show some pictures of our latest.

We found the crisper did not work good for us so we removed it and purchased a extra lower shelf for a 6.7 fridge. We then had
RV Widget Works | , (tractors1) make use a tray for the bottom of the fridge. We really like the way it turned out and the quality of their work.

Now that tractors1 has switched from a Casita to Escape maybe they will be coming up with some neat solutions for the bathroom.

Very nice . That crisper doesn't work very well and your idea makes more sense.

I'm not sure which frig model the "crisper doesn't work very well" is referring to... I love mine and can't imagine being without it. Glad your solution is working for you! And, that's what ownership is all about... what works for US.

we generally find the crisper tray to be awkward (doesn't open and close smoothly), but it is a useful place to put lots of little things that would otherwise take up a lot of shelf space.

I think I need to check out the 4.3 frig. My 6.7 has a "lil" door that flips down and I pull the drawer out. Nothing sticks... hummmm

Ours is the 6.7... I'm not sure what you mean by a little door... The drawer slides out, and has a little lid that is supposed to lift as the drawer slides out. But it doesn't move smoothly.

That is what we mean the little door that is supposed to flip up -you have to struggle with to open and close every time which means refrigerator door is opened longer and considering we already have problems trying to keep things cool . Yes we are level ,yes we only put frozen and very cold items in this box , yes we always carry a extra extreme cooler just in case and to keep ice just in case you needed to know that . We have been camping over 30 years and even long time ago in a tent .
