    Hi Russ

    Motorhome fridges are normally secured using 4 self tapping screws through the side woodwork into the fridge side panel.. crude but effective..

    Hi, be careful not only the mounting but it has to be vented properly and will have to be installed by a suitably qualified fitter- not as easy as you might think- would you not be better getting one of the many mini-fridges about nowadays?. I know they only work on 240v but if you are on hookup it won't be a problm. You could fill it from the "big" fridge maybe every couple of days or so.

    Hi davejen,we have a WAECO compressor fridge which does not need a vent,it only runs off the leisure batteries.

    Hi, Russ, sorry didn't realise that it should be relatively easy to move -probably best to build a frame to put the fridge onto -have you space for it if you just raise it from where it is now? then you could screw it to the inside of the van. Just a suggestion.

    A lot of 4x4 "campers" use ths type of 'fridge. I know that some of them have a mounting plate that secures them by the base, maybe if you contact some of the companies that prepare this type of vehicle you will find what you are looking for, or maybe whoever sells your make of 'fridge could advise if one is available for yours. Best of luck
