Hi All,

From my earlier post, you may have notice i picked up my Nissan Patrol today (3.0TD)

I need to buy a fridge for the car for 4 x 4 and camping trips I will do with the 4 x 4 club.

I wish to have a fridge that will be big enough for 2 adults and 3 kids, and have it fit in the cargo bay. I need to have one of the rear seats down for one of my kids to sit in, so I only have the space between 1 lowered seat, and the other seat folded away.

Any suggestions on what size fridge I could fit in this opening?

Thanks in advance

Tony,
Its really quite simple..just take ur new toy down to the local 4b shop and get them to allow you to true before u buy. Take the fridges out and sit them where u want it to be when ur off-road. Just check nad make sure u can open the lid if u plan on leaving inside, or ..well..u know what to do.

Dont do what i did, I went in there with the intention of getting a 60 ltr and comming home with an 80 ltr waeco. Its a fantastic fridge, but only JUST fits in and the slde draw is just long enough to allow me to slide it out and open the door.

So see how you go...in my opinion....Waeco / Engle....same differewnce..it comes down to what suits u.

best thing to is measure up the area then you can visit the fridge make web sites and see what ones fit in with your measurements, then you can decide what on best suits.

www.thefridgeshop.com has some specials on the larger sizes i noticed the other night.

check out this link. I have a Trailblaza 70 litre which may be a little big for the space you have but maybe one of their others might fit? They are an excellent fridge!! Spend the extra and get the 240V power pack, ours is our bar fridge when not in the Patrol!

Hello Brian,
Did you buy the fridge with the 75mm insulation or the 125mm? Wonder how much of a difference it makes in real terms.
Many thanks

Just the standard 75 mm insulation... it probably makes a big difference to go to 125mm but it also makes the fridge physically bigger... and the 70 litre that we have is big enough already!!!!! :-)

What ever you buy if the door is side opening make sure it opens without hitting the doors
