Advice on Replacing Microwave

We just recently bought our 2001 Cardinal. The microwave does not work and is not repairable so we have to replace it. I want the new microwave to fit in with the trim around it. We thought we could buy a microwave the size of the old one so we could use the existing trim. So far we can't find one the right size. Can someone make suggestions or guide me to where I can buy the microwave and trim to fit in my cabinet opening?
Here are the dimensions:
current microwave: 19.5" w x 11"h
current trim outer dimensions: 23"x16"
cabinet opening: 21"x 15"
Thanks for any advice!
Doris

Just a suggestion. Google the Manufacturer with Model number and see what pops up. That exact unit may still be available from someone.

Also there is no difference in an RV microwave and a home microwave - EXCEPT!! - how the warm/moist air is vented out of the unit. I would tend to want to order one from just about any old RV dealer, maybe one online, to get one that vents correctly. It may even be available with new trim for a really clean install.

Some folks believe RV microwaves are made to withstand road vibrations as well. Maybe. But I can't prove that. I can prove the part about venting.
