    303RLS -- 16 Cu. Ft. 12V Refrigerator option available?

    I'm finally getting close to retirement (already retired from the U.S. Army), in a year or so, and a 5th wheel purchase for longer duration trips than in our current travel trailer. I've been watching the 303RLS for a number of years. We prefer to camp in remote, difficult to access locations such as U.S. Forest Service sites and we want a shorter, more maneuverable 5th wheel. Although we've never had issues with our current LP/Elec fridge, I'm really leaning toward a 12v fridge (I'd be installing a suitable solar/battery system) rather than propane/electric but it seemed Grand Design wasn't really headed that way. Today I see that if I "build and price" the 303RLS there is a 16 Cu. Ft. 12V Refrigerator option. However, I don't see that option on the Spec/Features/Packages page. Does anyone know for sure if the 12V fridge is truly available on the 2022 303RLS?

    I don't think they would list it on the build page if it weren't (though there have been supply chain issues with just about all appliances). Perhaps @huntr70 has some details and will chime in.

    Thanks! The next question is... when are they going to go back to a real water heater?

    That's correct from what I'm hearing. My buddy looked at a new 303RLS and the dealer advised the same. They force the solar panel option which drives the price up $1,400 Cdn.
    I have a 2022 early build (July 2021) and it's still propane/electric fridge.

    12v standard now. Furrion unit (what else is new?). Do not know about durability, but it worked really well and has a ton of space. Frost free also which is much nicer than the one that was in our TT. I have two 6v glass mat batteries and the 160w solar that's also now standard. Not sure how long batteries only would keep it running.
