Yeah I haven't heard that about the 2019 trucks coming with fridges, but I also haven't been inside any of them. I know that none of the other trucks come with them. But all trucks should have inverters installed now, and if you get on one of the remaining older trucks that doesn't have one, the shop will install one for you.

I bought the 1.7 cu foot refrigerator from Walmart and it has plenty of room for me. Don't expect the freezer to keep anything truly frozen, but the refrigerator works great and is not loud. A lot of drivers strap them into the passenger seat, but I have mine strapped on the top bunk on the passenger side.

Like the dorm style fridge as opposed to the cooler style? Strapped to the top bunk, are there no ventilation or heat build-up issues or condensation leaks from the compressor? I'm guessing you had to remove the top bunk mattress?

Yes the dorm style and I never got a mattress for the top bunk because I don't have a need for it. I haven't had any ventilation issues whatsoever. It's completely open all the way around the fridge, with two straps over the top holding it down to the bunk. Works like a charm

I just checked out a 2-door fridge/freezer, 3.2 cu.ft. for $129.00. It's almost 20" L x 18.5" W x 33.5" H. Do you think this will be too big to have in the truck??? I was trying to figure out where I could put it but the top bunk with it strapped down sounds like a good idea.

This is what I have on my International and it fits behind the seat. It will fit in the 2019 cascadias, but too big for the cabinet in the older cascadia.

personally, i think it is too tall to go on the top bunk, but maybe. it would have to be really really strapped. And im getting too old to climb up every time i need something.

My 2019 Cascadia came with a built-in fridge. The storage is so... Sparse in this thing I don't even have a place to mount my TV. :-(
