I've had my Engel fridge for almost 4 years now and it has been an incredible addition to my trail and travel equipment list. With the addition of the Adventure Trailers stowage slide it has made the Engel 45 that I purchased from Sierra Expeditions a permanent feature in the back of my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Thanks!
We have used this unit on our 35' sailboat in the Bahamas for 6 months. It draws a third of the power that our built in Fridge/freezer draws and is much more efficient. We keep the box at 18 degrees and load it up with meat, frozen vegetables and fruit. Our sailboat is a 12 volt system and we are very conscious of power usage as our house battery is a single 8D and our starter battery is an isolated Group 27. The MT45 has proven it's value.
This was on my list for a while. Didn't think it was worth the money compared to a brand like Coleman. That was until I saw one up close they are not even similar. This is the Escalade of fridges and you can use it as a freezer also. All other I would consider a pinto next to this thing. On a side note I have had this over a year now and it has run every day straight since the purchase. I keep it at my office to hold drinks in when I am not using it in my rig. Best purchase yet!
You simply cannot compare a fridge like this to a 12-volt "electric cooler" from companies like Koolatron or Coleman. This is a REAL fridge/freezer and not just an insulated box with a cooling fan. No more warm drinks, safely carry fresh meat for
Probably the best thing I’ve added to my vehicle. Heavy duty metal case, well made. Holds enough food and drinks to last my wife and I several days - NO MORE DEPENDANCY ON ICE! I highly recommend Engel fridge/freezers!
