6 way leveling vs 4 door refrig

Ok This will sound whiny, but it is my dilemma.

My employer is buying a 320RS for me to full time in over the next year. The problem I need to have this in hand in the next couple weeks. That leaves me to pick from current inventories instead of ordering one made to desires.

I'm down to two units. They are exactly the same for the most part. With the exception that one has the 6 point leveling system and the other has a 4 door frig.

If you had to choose between the leveling system or the frig which way would you go and why?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Are you fulltiming in one place or moving frequently? Personally, I'd skip the auto level unless your mobile often. Then again, I've never had that luxury...

X2. I have both (sorry) and the auto leveler is only usefull if moving often. If you aren't moving often then the fridge is the must have. Unless you like going to the grocery store every few days....

I would go with the fridge, I can always level it, but noit having enough room in the fridge is horrible.

The two door fridge is ok for full timing if it's only you in the RV and occasional friends that stop buy. Any more than one person full timing in the RV, you will want the 4 door fridge. Course if the company is buying you the 320RS..............Are they also paying for your food? If not, well you already know the answer.

I would go with the 4 door fridge NOW. Then pay money later at a dealer of your choice to have the auto lever system installed. Swapping out a 2 door fridge later for a 4 door would be expensive assuming it could even be done.

We wouldn't do with the 4 door refrigerator. We don't miss bathe auto leveling.

I would go for the fridge, auto level won't cool down the beer. and you'll need plenty of beer for all the people that want to come tour your shiny new Columbus.

Thanks everyone. I went with the fridge. Sorry I didn't get to you all. I have been very sick the past few days.
