Will these cheap freezers do the job? Thanks for your advice in advance
I’m getting back into camping and looking at purchasing a Mistral 80L upright or 60L chest freezer from Big W for $198 (in current catalogue), comes with a 3 year warranty and weights 32kg. I can’t justify $1000+ for something that will get used 4-5 times a year
Planning 7 to 10 day trips during cooler months at camp grounds with powered sites, I need powered sites to recharge AGM deep cycle batteries in the boat.
Plan is to pre-freeze everything at home (milk, meat, bread, 8-10x2L water bottles), pre-chill as many drinks as possible and pre cool 80L Techniice esky. Then place everything into esky until I reach my destination 2-3 hours, once camp is set up, place all meat, bread and milk into freezer. Then each night re-freeze 4x 2L water/coke bottles, in the morning place these into the esky and pre-chill some more drinks to replace yesterdays. The repeat this process each day, if I need more ice I can use empty coke bottles.
