new fridge - recommendations?

My fridge has packed it in (I have the Dometic in a 17A that now smells very strongly of ammonia). Hence, I get a new fridge - any recommendations for fridges?

It's under warranty, so I can simply get the same again - but, if there is a much better alternative then I have this opportunity to change it. I'm looking for something the same size (so there

Battery power is not super important. Sturdiness and effiency is.

Re: new fridge - recommendations?

When I was looking for an alternate fridge, at one point thinking of getting one with a larger freezer, we were limited by the size of the door to get it in. This width cut out almost all other fridges. We did find just one 6 cf fridge that would get in, but Lisa opted instead to have the additional cupboard space above, once we got to physically see the layout.
