I have searched high and low on this site and others, and I need your help.

Does anyone still have their 12-volt refrigerator that bolts to floor behind the passenger seat?

I got rid of mine before measuring the darned thing, and I plan to build a small cabinet--the same width--and mount it to the floor using the hardware that held the fridge down.

I mostly need the width of the fridge between the mounting hardware, so that I can build my cabinet to fit the space just right.

Thank you.

I know this is a pretty old thread but does anyone have a photo of the original bolt down weekender frig? I am looking at an 86 this week and wanted to know if the set up in that one is original.
Thanks

You do know that fridge is old technology and that far better 12v efficient actual refrigerators are on the market today?

I would think twice about buying an old unit like that.

Well I am not going to buy the weekender for the old refrigerator, I just wanted to know if it is original or not. Is that ok with you? Haha
