Not sure if the Mods can help us out here.  I know on some of the polls you can remove your vote and resubmit your new choice.

We had a 39L Engel, went to a 60L after buying a flash new camper trailer. After we sold the last camper and changed vehicles we also brought a Evakool Ice Box (didn't have dual batteries etc any more).

So at the moment we have a 60L Engel and an Evakool Ice Box, but I think I'd like to go back to a 40L, or perhaps 2 x 40L engels, one in the car and one in the trailer when we eventually get one. Well depends if I can convince Hubby, I think he's a fridge man rather than an eski man so the two 40L engels might be enough to sway him to give the 60L up!

We've got two kids who are growing fast, but a while till they're teenagers yet. Yet I must say we don't have any problem filling up the 60L even on short camping trips so perhaps downsizing isn't the best idea. Oh don't worry my Husband actually likes warm beer too (yuck!).

We have the fridge that comes in the Jayco Eagle, but as our camping trips are mostly unpowered, and so far have not been longer than 6 days, we use 80L Techni Ice Boxes.  These are fantastic ice boxes, the ice lasts extremely well in them and they are as cheap as chips off EBAY.  We use a blue one for food and a yellow one for drinks. This is so the kids know which esky holds the drinks and  :Dare not constantly into the food esky.

I run the Ironman 4x4 'ice cube' 45L fridge/freezer. Runs the Danfoss Compressor(same as Waeco CF50)
Great little unit with Battery Protector, 12v/240 and digital readout and fridge light. Runs very quiet and cools very Quickly with low voltage usage. Great looking unit as well and comes with a thermal bag.

Blackdiamond, I've added Ironman as an option on the poll.

I've never seen this fridge before, how long have they been around?

I think the have been around for a year or so. Had some really good write ups, i had the oppurtunity to pick one up for half price and thought they cant be too bad with german engineering.
The fridge itself does not have handles, but the thermal bag has them along with anchor points. Probably not the ideal setup to have jumping around in a camper trailer, but for what i needed it for (freezing mainly as the Swan has the 3way dometic) and basically sitting in the annexe it suits me nicely, and so far are rapt with it and looks to be well made.

cheers John

I went for the 60kL evakool because they are more efficient, cheaper and aussie made. All confirmed in Choice magazine. The onlly downside that I have found is that its a bit more of ackward shape.

I also have a 82 tropical ice box, which we use for longer trips with the fridge. We vacuum pack our food, freeze it and then into the ice box with 1/3 ice and it lasts a week. Makes a good stand for the evakool at camp too.

Interesting comment, Ive been looking at getting a better quality esky instead of $50 Bunnings job I have already when I couldnt be bother dragging around and setting up the Chescold 3 way 40 litre gas fridge. I have been seriously considering the Evakool box icebox from BCF.

I thought there was the option to make multiple votes, have you tried adding a second choice?

Yep poll function is that smart, I have currently set to max 3 votes per person and we can change that as we go along, but you need to add them all up front. Once you hit Vote, yours is locked in. But you can only vote for one brand once, ie if you have two waecos, you only get one vote.

Will need to add brands as people request them though
