The outdoor kitchen is one of the things we like the most about our Crusader. If I could change anything it would be to have the outside fridge run on gas or electric. I do like the idea of the taller faucet, too. We rarely camp where we have hook-ups and most meals are done outside on an open fire so the outdoor kitchen makes a great prep area. It is also a wonderful fish cleaning station.

I wish that the fridge was propane fired. What would it cost to do so?

Mustafa - I did a quick look at Camping World and saw a 2.7 Cubic Foot refer for just under $900 that is "probably" propane. I say "probably" because it didn't say that it was, but $900 would be the range I would expect for this upgrade.

In our opinion, the extra convenience is not worth the additional cost as a standard factory feature, but we appreciate the feedback.

Hey RV Guy,

I'll second (or third) what others have said about making the fridge two-way (AC and gas). We camp half the time on electric and dry camp the other half. Sure would be a nice option. Have a good one.

I am going to go out on a limb here, but I bet you guys get some sort of break on buying fridges in bulk... So it would be a little cheaper than $900, but even if it wasn't I would have paid it.." In our opinion, the extra convenience is not worth the additional cost as a standard factory feature, but we appreciate the feedback" You ask for feedback, and that has been a reoccuring item thats has come up. What gives ??? " In our opinion" We were not talking about your opinion, we were talking about the peoples opinions who use these campers day in and day out.. Not like we were asking for the moon.. Just a fridge that is usable, all we have now is an electric "cooler" that can only really be used once you get somewhere with elec. For a minute I thought we might have a company that listens to their customers..

To me it seems really dumb to not have a two way fridge. Saying no to $900 for the cost of these would be like saying no to a gas station coke because it was 15 cents more expensive.

That being said, I think the others make valid comments about using the counter space for taller items. We hung a paper towel holder under the cabinet and there is little room between the top of the counter and the bottom of the towel holder.

I guess I'm a cake wanter and a cake eater
We hung our paper towel holder on the inside of the o.d. kitchen door. So when the door is open, the paper towel holder is above your head. Works perfect!!

There is more than the cost of the fridge people, you have to vent it , supply gas and if I am not mistaken it's deeper than an 110 volt fridge. You could probably add another $ 900.00 for all the extras or more.
