How much storage do you need?

Have you looked at the Dometic CoolFreeze series? They are AC/DC and portable if you need. I think a CF80 would fit on a slideout tray.

I have a CF110 on a slideout tray in my Haulmark and love it, set it as a cooler to keep your beverages cold or crank the temp down and keep your ice cream sandwich frozen.

check out the edgestar -

we have a 64 quart model, been a good one, it'll freeze down to -5 degrees (f), its thermostatically controlled and auto switches between 12vdc and 120vac depending on whats available.

I had to trim the stiffening lip of the storage bay to get he cooler to clear, but then i put ours on heavy duty slide rails...

It is actually an old Norcold. I guess Dometic bought them or something. We've had this freezer's baby brother for years, dragging it in and out of cars, trucks, and boats. It has been from the mountains to the Gulf Stream. I was very pleased to raise that hatch and find the bigger one.

I added our (edge star) and have been very pleased with it - 120* and the beers are always 34* (or what ever you set it at).

I won't be without an electric cooler....no more chasing ice at a race or tailgate event.
You don't realize how much room ice takes up in a cooler takes...until you have an electric cooler. You can get a lot more in the cooler when you don't have to have ice.

Thanks for all the input, guess I have something to work and look for.
As for the size, I was wanting for ice and some frozen foods, but now throw in beer and ice cream.....
Where do you put tables and chairs grill when you have a outside tv and a freezer??
I must be packing wrong

I am working on that. I only have one dedicated basement storage box. The DW is pushing to remove the outside entertainment center to free up some additional storage.

for us....i put chairs, out door mat, tire covers and a ton of other crap in the front bin (between passenger door & house door).

next door is TV/Entertainment system
next door is cooler & overflow usually pretty empty
final door (after axle) is grill, tool box, jack pads, hoses, cleaning poles and spare parts.

adding shelves helps a lot.


FRONT BIN



MIDDLE BINs



REAR BIN



as you can see in this (old) picture...theres quite a bit of room in our "cooler" bin if we need it...
