Dimension of 5 cu ft Fridge Freezer? Dometic RM2554

I did a search but couldn't find this -- please point me to it if I've missed it... otherwise:
What are the dimensions -- height and width and depth -- of the freezer section of the 5 cubic foot refrigerator that is currently standard in the ETI 19'?
I've been told it's a Dometic model RM2554. But the Dometic site doesn't give volume or dimensions of the freezer compartment -- just the total ("5 cu ft") for the unit.
I'm trying to decide between the standard 5 cu ft unit and the optional 6 cu ft. If the 5 has a bigger freezer section than that in the fridge of my current rig then I'll probably be satisfied with it. Otherwise...
Thanks. - Mark

The 17 X 8 X 6 you report for the freezer is about twice the size of the freezer in my current rig...and doing some arithmetic tells me that the above-freezing section would be slightly bigger than what I currently have, so should be OK for me.

My current rig (a FWC truck camper) has an Isotherm 130L compressor fridge. This is not original equipment; I put this in after the original Dometic ruptured its cooling system, spewing ammonia into the camper -- 3 days into a 2-week trip.

one advantage of the smaller fridge it you get the microwave cabinet above it. its wired with plug. You can use it for more storage also.

Yes, that's the driver for me sticking with the stock 5 cu ft: I'd rather not lose that cabinet -- probably for a microwave.

or a dry pantry. In the E19 kitchen area it is not as large as the E21 and food storage of chips and other large light items, even plates I found would store nicely in the empty o/h refer closet. Also a handy 120v plug is there for keeping a rechargeable flashlight handy.
