Refrigerator - std. propane vs. electric residential

When faced with the option of ordering either one,
What are the pros & cons on std. propane camper style refrigerators?
What are the pros & cons on electric residential style refrigerators?

We will be shopping for a 5er for fulltiming and trying to decide which kind of refrigerator we want. Any tips, hints or info would be greatly appreciated.

The obvious ones: You can only use the residential when you've got electric, but they generally hold more (and probably weigh more).

You can use the propane while you're on the road or in the wilderness. We're pretty happy with our 12 cu-ft but we don't full-time.

We're looking at the Sanibel because of its livability. We're going to full time in it, so we're looking for a residential fridge for that reason.

We love our Sanibel. Maybe I'm remembering wrong, but I thought they said the warranty didn't cover full-timing in them (which seems really silly to me).
