Overland Park KS (Low 57 Sunny to Partly Cloudy High 80)

We are getting a new residential refrigerator as part of the repairs and upgrades we are going through. We got lucky when we put our Norcold 1210 refrigerator on Craigslist, someone was needing that very refrigerator right away. With a great deal on the brand new Samsung and a the money from the used Norcold we are money ahead. 

Here is a picture of the original Norcold that we got the off the web, realized we didn't have a good picture before we sold it.

The empty slot where the Norcold was

Making the slot bigger for the 20 cu. ft. Samsung

Here it is all completed with wood trim to match our existing woodwork. You can see the new vinyl flooring and new carpet in this photo also.

Since we have boondocked only 1 night in 4 years we decided against getting an inverter. We travel 4 hours or less each day so the Samsung should still be cold when we plug back in. Plus this one has an icemaker!!

They are making great progress and we "may" be back in our home, our upgraded condo on wheels, in a few short days.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. I hope you have better luck with your Samsung than I'm having. They are wonderful when they work.

  2. That is the exact refrigerator we had in the MH. I love that refrig. I am secretly hoping the one we have in the Cameo goes out so I can get a new one. I am so jealous!

  3. Like Marsha, we are just waiting for our frig to die so we can get a new one..

  4. Now that's what I want!! You travel like we do. I have that on the upgrade list. Thanks for posting.

  5. Howdy y'all,

    Have you been reading Judy Bell's blog (Travels with Emma) about her Samsung refrigerator ???
    Some of Judy's commenters have had troubles also !!!

    Your new one is just like the one Joyce wants...
