I ordered my Ocelot with no refrigerator as I opt'd for a truck fridge portable unit.  Originally was going to put in the space where the factory refrigerators are installed, but decided to put on the floor below the front window.  Marty gave me the top cabinet board in case I later wanted to enclose that space.  I decided to go with a bench top hinge setup.  These hinges allow the geometry of flush back, pull out and swing up to work.  The one's I got are similar to these: http://tinyurl.com/y6wt2e4o

 

Framed in the space, attached hinges, attached top.

The top sits flush with side of camper, but will swing out and up to open.

Get to use the counter top, but then when needed swing it up to access stuff below.

 I use Mountainsmith modular 3 cube system in the space. http://mountainsmith...r-hauler-3.html

 

 

Works great and with the swing open counter top, I can easily access the cube system without pulling it out of this space.   I put small cargo mesh across opening to keep the cube system in place.  Originally, I was going to put a "hidden compartment" under the counter, but liked the topside access to my storage cubes.
