Hi folks,

I am currently looking at purchasing a fridge/freezer for the back of the Cruiser and after narrowing it down to either the Engel 60l and the National Luna 52l I have decided on the latter mainly because it gives me simlar capacity but has a much smaller footprint than the Engel which will allow me to have a full size add on drawer next to it. Problem is that the fridge slide that comes with the drawer set up I am getting from ORS is 385mm and the NL 52l fridge is also 385mm on its shortest side and I am unsure as to whether it will fit.

I have contacted the NL rep and as yet have had no response. The ORS rep said and I quote "The internal tray width of our fridge slide measures 385 wide x 725 long and I noticed that the width of the fridge is 385 wide taken straight from the National Luna website. Previous experience says that fridge manufactures generally put the overall dimensions on their spec sheet and not the actual foot print so I can only assume, that the footprint of the fridge will be smaller than the fridge slide so it should all fit in the 385 x 725 fridge slide".

This doesn't exactly inspire confidence as the ORS slide isn't cheap. Does anyone out there have this combo and if not does anyone have a NL 52 litre they could measure the footprint of for me? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Craig

I have a National Luna, fantastic fridge with lots of insulation and low power use.

I have the 74L and not the 52l but remember that the width dimension of mine ( 495mm) was overall and the fridge slide part part less.

OL usually stock them or I have found National Luna in Perth helpful. Try another call and see if you get a different person.

Thanks Boobook. I wasn't aware Opposite Lock stocked them I thought they were only available through Dolium in Welshpool. I will give OL a ring. Also, good to hear you are happy with the fridge. Haven't heard any bad things about them except that they are a little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for I guess!

Cheers

Ive got a 50l Weekender fridge/freezer fitted on a FrontRunner fridge slide . All good
Unfortunately for me, my fridge survived the Canning Stock Route, but failed on the bitumen returning from Halls Creek to Fitzroy. $650 poorer, I have a new electronic module and I am back on the road.
The only good thing I can say about that, was the fridge repair guy said they were made to be repaired on the road (modular design).

Thanks Pedro, some bad news backed up with some good there as well! They do offer a pretty good warranty on new fridges. How long had you had it before you had the trouble?

Hi
Check out MSA 4x4. I have NL 50ltr and it fits in their drop down fridge slide. Google will find them.

Thanks Peter,

I am looking at the 52 litre model but I am assuming the footprint would be the same? I do like the MSA drop slide however the ORS slide is part of a "fridgepack" of drawers I am getting for the Cruiser with the slide included. The discount I would receive by excluding the slide wouldn't come close to covering the cost of the MSA drop slide. The drawers are already pretty expensive! Thanks for the feedback though.

In have had my NL for over 5 years so can't complain, especially as we have
spent 14 months on the road in the last 3 years doing the some of the good offroad stuff - Gibb, Simpson, and CSR etc.


Hopefully this picture will show our successful setup

That's a great set-up mate. Something I am slowly working towards! I should have the drawers in by Xmas so looking forward to that. I noticed you have an Oztent RV tent there. One of the things I am deciding at the moment is whether to go for a rooftent or one of the Oztents or something similar. I like the idea of the Oztent as you don't have to pack your rooftent back up if you want to go exploring but they seem pretty heavy and cumbersome when packed up in the bag and take up a fair bit of space on the roof anyway. How do you find it?

Our setup is excellent and very flexible. I also use a Foxwing and two side awning Depending on the trip, depends what gear I take. As I guess you are in Perth I am happy to show you or discuss the pros and cons of the various setups if you like.
