Default Re: What is the best refrigerator for full time van living?

I run with the ARB 50QT tub freezer / frig. It's amazing; quiet and uses far less energy than the equivalent Dometic standard door frig. Easily uses 50% less power for the same cooling. I can run it up to 2 full days on a single AGM battery with power to spare. It also has batter run-down protection; should the voltage drop, it will limit its power consumption. Also, I've had it 5 years and not one hiccup - seems bullet proof.

My 6 year old ARB has been bulletproof as well.
Super low power draw and quiet.
Easy to clean.
Holds lots of stuff and beer.
Gets cold fast.
People at ARB answer the phone....
I paid $700 shipped.

I Recently bought a New Isotherm freeline 115 for the (zero progress) build on the new van, as the wife wanted a front loader.
Iíll keep the ARB around for good measure, backup and possible freezer duties.
