    Mini compressor fridge?



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Finally decided that the hassle of parking my caravan at the end of a trip is too awkward off a main road with many parked vehicles. Completed a fuller interior conversion of my van but am concerned about perishables going off in warm weather. No space for a three way as in the caravan so considering a 20 litre Icebox as advertised on Amazon. Has anyone any experience to share?

    Most powered iceboxes aren't mini compressor, they are thermoelectric, have used them in past and worked well, but a low voltage cutoff is recommended.
    T'other week Aldi had a good deal on one.

    Got the brand name wrong - Should be Ice Cube! Thanks to the brexit shenanigans & value of the pound the price has risen £40 overnight

    You would think selling fridges the price would be frozen.

    The Waeco compressor fridges /boxes take some beating for reliability/efficiency/VFM in most conditions .

    I got a 40 litre dometic freezer / cool box. Temperature settings really flexible you can use as a fridge or a freezer. Wouldn’t be without it as we freeze food at home and take with us on all our trips
