    Hi all,
    Can anyone suggest a suitable fridge for a Kontiki 610. The one is there at the moment has a small ice box at the top but that is not a necessity for us. We are going to have to buy a new one but does it have to be a Dometic or can you put a different make in. Probably sounds a daft question to you guys. Any recommendations would be good. Many thanks

    What model are you replacing? Dometic do refer to suitable replacements where the old model is specified.
    Magnums at Grimsby are shed loads cheaper than anyone else regardless of discounts.

    RM8501 is the modern replacement
    https://www.dometic.com/enie/International/Site/Caravan/Refrigerators/Replacement-models/

    See if anyone will come near Magnums price or even better it

    Make sure you get the correct side hinge as it is NOT reversible

    8501 also has a REMOVABLE freezer compartment 8551 demostrated

    Just bought a new Dometic from Jacksons of Wirral, quality of service, range of stock, speed and cost were unmatched in my research.
    It is important to compare fridge price + delivery as the delivery costs are seriously different from company to company.

    Good luck
