The most refined RV refrigerator on the market

The Dometic RUC8408X refrigerator has undergone extensive research and development with the result being the most refined RV refrigerator on the market. At the centre of the Dometic RUC8408X’s design is its tall and narrow cabinet, which allows for greater flexibility in the kitchen area without compromising on storage volume. Due to the smaller footprint, the installation of the refrigerator is hassle-free, the service process for the Dometic RUC8408X refrigerator has also been streamlined, the result being that rather than removing windows to access the refrigerator, the RUC8408X refrigerator can be easily fit through the entrance door of your RV if required.
