Looks like I have go a different route than Accuride as they don't sell to individuals. The website you gave me Ernest doesn't carry the larger size, they just state that they come in the larger size.

I'd definitely get at least a 36" set.... Rather have extra length than not enough.....

Make sure it's a full-extension and will support the weight you will load into it taking into account that the ref weight 61lbs empty....

Well, those won't work as they only go on the sides, not on floors.

It didn't occur to me to get a fridge to take camping until we had a fridge go out on us just as we were packing up to go camping. No time to repair or replace so we took DS fridge (dorm size) instead. Felt like a stroke of genius Perfect to keep outside for soda, water, etc. If you have power, it's awesome

I'm still looking for the slides.

Where are you going to stay in Houston? We will be traveling through Texas at some point.
