Wow, I have never heard of them before but that sure looks the goods. Read through the specs and it sure looks like a good unit. I will be interested in how it goes.

Looks like you got a good buy. Cannot go wrong with a fridge freezer set up. When we go away for the weekend we just use all fridge but for longer trips we use the freezer as well. Enjoy and let us know how it goes. :cheers

Congratulations dea. A good plan is to run the fridge for several days at home before you need it for camping. I actually run mine pretty well all year as I find they perform better overall.

Hi Dea this is a great buy I bought 1 from ebay 3 yrs ago and i thought well if it lasts a few yrs should be ok, well its still going strong I use it every time I go away it gets down to minus 19. I was sceptical when i bought mine I paid $450 and am so pleased with it Im sure youll get yrs of use from it I did recieve a bag with mine though Id try get a bag if you can.Alan

The bag that Alan refers to is a transit bag or often called an insulation bag and they are well worth having. They not only protect the exterior of the fridge but also make it run more efficiently....especially in the summer months.

If you have a look at the original eBay link you will see that it actually has a transit bag with it. ;)

The bag you get isnt like gl says its not like the ingles or waeco's its basic just a cover the ones gl is on about is top notch you wont get that with it, but I still use the bag I got as a scatrch cover really no insulation at all.
