Is the Samsung refrigerator model #RF197AC new to the U.S.?

I purchased a Samsung RF197AC refrigerator today in Southern California. My tentative ship date is July 11, 2011. The Sears sales rep told me her Samsung mfg rep didn't know that Samsung even manufactured this model. I am getting custom build cabinets made to fit around the dimensions in the owner's manual, but am worried that I have purchased something that hasn't been manufactured yet...and the dimensions could change.
1) Can you let me know if I can rely on the dimensions as stated in the owner's manual ?
2) Can you let me know the likelihood of receiving this refrigerator on the tentaitive ship date? I don't mind waiting 6 weeks, but don't want to wait 6 months.

Thank you

Thank you for your question. Getting a new refrigerator can be exciting. This refrigerator model has been in production for a couple of years now. The dimensions should be the same as what is listed in the owner's manual. I'm attaching the dimensions and also the installation clearance listed in the manual. I would suspect the arrival time will be on time or close. However, I recommend that you contact the store you purchased the unit from to get more information about the shipping and arrival time. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.
