Well, I looked at a NovaKool today and didn't like the freezer on the bottom. It does fit the hole the old Norcold will leave, however. Yes, I believe that Norcold has changed to Danfoss compressors but the frig that caught my eye is the Vitrifrigo! Fits exactly in the same hole as the Norcold but has 8.1 cubic feet! (1 cubic foot more than the Norcold) Another thing that really impressed me is the "seal" around the doors. My friend has had his Vitrifrigo for two weeks and there is no evidence of it even being close to needing a defrosting.( MY Norcold needs one about every week.) So far my vote goes to Vitrifrigo!
