No I'll own up and take the rap.  :police:  Don't mess around with what you don't know about (I keep tell my kids that, I wish I would take my own advice sometime).  :-[

Thanks anyway Brett.  And I thought you would fix it up and no one would notice.  ::)

Waeco CF-50 in the truck and an Evakool 60L in the trailer.
Truck fridge for storage and Trailer fridge for ready use.
Also have a CF-25 Waeco at home which used to be our second fridge before we got the Odyssey. Still usefull for BBQ's and day trips.

Haven't had a problem with any of them.

My Mum, however, has an 18L Waeco (not a compressor fridge) and has had no end of trouble with the thermostat. Been repaired three times in 18 months and is particulalry unimpressive (The fridge, not my mum :D ).

I have 4 Engel's and one Waeco.


That's what happens when you drink to much rum,  you end up an Waeco owner.

Waeco CF50.  Picked it up for $750 at factory seconds sale at Waeco's outlet on the gold coast.  It was just superceded, not marked or used. 
I'm thinking of getting a 25L waeco as a second fridge to act as permanent freezer.  But I need a camper trailer to fit the extra fridge in!  (Yes I'm an imposter here - no CT yet :-) )

I've currently got a 60L engel and I love it. Its a little on the big side for overnight trips (unless its a heavy drinking overnight trip, then its perfect :cheers:) but for most of our use its brillant. We are looking at a twozone to use with it for the real long trips

What about DIY.
Ive got a 70 litre poly "esky" from BigW and i had a Italian camper fridge with a Danfos compressor in it , Took the guts out and fitted to the esky. then covered the whole lot in ali checker plate, good and tough. Much the same result as a Evercool.
Besides that have two 29L engels that I bought back in 83 and also have two 15 L engels that I seem to keep just because I dont know how old they are.They both work great, they are the original ones with exposed evap coils.  Just cant kill a Engel.

A old B series Engel. I have the exact same model. Thirsty on the 12v but runs a treat on 240v. How does yours perform on 12v Darren?

 That fridge isn't mine. It was in the rd transport hall of fame in alice springs. I liked the look of it so i took a few pics. I have the next model and has been previously mentioned it has done easily over 100k km's, been rolled, imersed in salt water and is still powering on. It now has a fair bit of wear in the inner plastic tub from the lid seal rubing and the basket doing the same. Im going to retire it to the Kamper and buy a new one of the same next year

The old 39lt engel here, has been doing sterling service for the last 12 years, and currently on bar duty at present, 1.5 on the dial makes for a very refreshing brewskie :cheers:

Also run a 85lt poly esky that does alcohol duty in the camper. :angel:

i have a 50 litre waeco. Bought it as it fited perfectically in my old 4runnerwith the false floor and the remmovable lid was extremelly handy to gain access when it was in the runner.
I will never forget my first trip away with a fridge instead of dealing with soggy and waterlogged items in the esky. What a revelation and I couldn't believe I had waited so long.

A 60 litre engel which I picked up for nix  :angel: >:D

And too many eskies of varoius shapes and sizes.
