Refrigerators? Yup, You’ll Need One

Unless you are only going on one of those rare day trips where peanut butter and bread will easily suffice, the number one RV accessory you'll forever be grateful for investing in is without a doubt a fridge. Needless to say, you're not going to want to settle for anything less than the best, which is why we narrowed it down for you.

Size:
Pull out the measuring tape. Figure out the dimensions of the area in your RV that will accommodate the refrigerator. Then, when you're shopping, find out the height, width, and depth of any units you're considering buying and check to make sure they'll fit in the space. Don't forget to allow a few inches above and behind the unit for air to circulate. Also be sure there's enough room for the doors to swing open.

If you're going for a unit with the freezer above or below the main refrigerator chamber, figure out in which direction you want the doors to open to offer you good access. Make sure the doors of the fridge you want either open in the right direction or can be reversed.

Finish
RV Refrigerators with stainless steel finishes are all the rage, but they show fingerprints. So some manufacturers came out with faux stainless surfaces that look similar but resist prints. Before you buy, keep in mind that faux and real stainless vary by brand and model, so they may not match other stainless appliances.
While water and ice dispensers in the door used to be found primarily on side-by-side fridges, now you can find them on almost every configuration. These dispensers are very convenient if your family uses water and/or ice often. However they can be messy, are susceptible to breaking, and increase the purchase price, so be sure you need this feature before you make a purchase for your RV.
