Here at Vanlife Outfitters, we love this refrigerator! We used it in our last two Miles Van Camper vans and are very happy with it. It’s great to have a large refrigerator plus a separate freezer. This unit works well in a tall cabinet where the refrigerator is lifted off the ground a bit. In this orientation, you don’t have to continually crouch down to access either the refrigerator or freezer. You can see this in the photo showing the unit installed into Miles Van Camper illustrating the aluminum panel option. Also available in a light grey finish.
The unit ships with black panels for the doors but we you can remove the black panels and replace them with something like brushed aluminum or laminate. The photo showing the refrigerator installed into a van with metallic/aluminum door panels used Lamitec brand “aluminum brush” code: 2030. Other customers have used various colors/finishes of laminate for these panels. You can use the factory door panels as templates.
This refrigerator ships with the doors hinged on the right side but can be swapped so that it hinges from the left side. Details on this are included in the manual.
This refrigerator is 12 volt DC only.

Installation Flange Notes
Below are some details photos of the installation flange to illustrate that system. The flange itself is about 1″ and there is an attachment mechanism that adds about 1/4″ so the entire flange system is 1-1/4″ wide on each side (2-1/2″ total). That is why the width, without the flange is 20-3/4″ and with the flange is 23-1/4″. This all means that your opening should be at least 21-1/4 but 21-1/2″ is likely better so that there is 1/8″ of space on either side when sliding the unit into the opening.
