RockRunner 04-01-2008 08:04 PM

I am looking for a 45 or 60, anything bigger than that and my 4Runner is doing wheelies :p: The longest time that I would need the fridge for is about 5-6 days. Besides that it would be for 3-5 day camping trips.

I would like to get one before Moab, CM that is, but if not I can wait a little longer. I am thinking of calling Christo tomorrow as I am only going to be at the meeting for a little while.:(

I went with the Waeco from here http://www.boatandrvaccessories.com/CF-50.htm Same dollars as an Engel and more space also got great reviews in Overland Journal:thumb:

We have used the arb 42qt for many adventures for the family(and years). We once even worked two families on our fridge for 7 days. The other family used ice for the non frozen stuff and we had the frozen stuff for 2/3 fridge and other stuff on top. As the days went along we just shifted stuff over to the fridge as the ice melted. I know the B&B Miller bought the big fridge(60qt) it does take a direct connection to a big amp feed if you are thinking of going that direction(almost needs to go direct to the 2nd battery).

The waeco may of gotten a good review, but when I went on training with Scott, it would only work on 110v, it seems like something internal went south. Not to say this will happen, the weaco has some nice features and I am sure you will enjoy it Dan.

The Waeco ended up a close second to the National Luna for Overland Journals fridge comparison. Though they had good things to say about all them. A good read if your in the market for a fridge:beer::beer:

I think Mike should bring his 80 so he can light up our campsite with all the LED's
