Engel MB40VH discontinued - what else is comparable?

Looking to add two top loading fridges - one to be used as freezer.

The word is Engel is the most power efficient and I found the MB40VH online - but it is discontinued - called the company and confirmed. Also confirmed they do not sell any kits you can use with your own cold box.

Other recommendations?

I could buy their stand-alone units and build em in I guess?

There are a lot of icebox conversion units available. I think Engel makes a version of their swing compressor just for this purpose.

On the link you supplied, there is another link to a D model that is still in production I believe.

I called the number on the website. The person told me they do not make any sort of kits for doing icebox conversion.
