Fleetwood: My wife finds the fridge is not deep enough

Customer Question
I presently have a 2004...
I presently have a 2004 Terry Fleetwood 5th wheel trailer. My wife finds the fridge is not deep enough. Is is possible to obtain a deeper frig or a taller frig.( We have lots of room for a deeper frig.] The present size of our frig is approx. 24"wide and 54" high. Our 1999 Citation had a much deeper frig. We do spent the winters in Texas and my wife would love more room for the food and the beer.
Thank You very much

The manufacturer is Demetic I don't have the model number with me because it is at the lake I have lots of room above the existing frig. All I have to do is cut a portion of a cupboard door. I have been looking for RV frig on the Internet and when they mention depth do they mean inside or outside measurements. I would have no problem extending the shelf forward where the frig presently sits if I could find a frig that has a greater depth.

Good the room is what you have to gain,,,,,,,,the depth is of the outside of the unit,,,,they have gotten much better with size inside the refers, as they have recessed the doors, and made the walls of the units with more updated material for insulation,,,,,,,The only way to get a greater depth is to go to a house hold type of refer, and that is not very practical if you do dry camping..................when you get the model number of your unit,,,,,,,,,there is a comparison chart available the once viewed, you can see the cu ft of that refer vs the new units available,,,,,,,,,,,It would be nice if you could put in a double door, but that means going to the side, and that is not always possible.........
