Shano
I got the same fridge at the same deal and it's been faultless. It's kept things properly frozen in 38 degree heat. It's easy to clean and is not too heavy. Ten out of ten.

Most things work well when new.
I reckon the time to give an unqualified endorsement (in the case of a portable compressor fridge) is when it has achieved 20+ years of blameless performance.

Mine is pretty close, bought my Eva Kool in 2000, it has been faultless now for 15 years. I rang Eva Kool a year or two back and asked em if I should get it serviced. The fella said "is it still working" I said yep. He said, "Leave it alone". It's been used as a freezer it's entire life, has kept food solid frozen in temps up to 50 degrees in the Kimberleys. It has travelled the roughest roads and tracks in Aus.

I would recommend them to all and sundry!

Mine too. It doesn't get turned off except for a quick defrost every few months. One of the first evakool's after the supakool. It's been belted and bashed and never misses a beat.

Well I have a 25l Eva Kool that I use for short trips and it is not all that impressive - has been reliable but uses heaps of power, is noisy, insulation is a bit thin and internal temps do fluctuate a bit.

It seems not all models are the same.

Nor is the price - judging by the size (do they do a 25?) it won't be an RF or a FM model which are the models you pay money for and get results from. You probably get performance in line with what you paid for it. They do 5 or 6 ranges of fridges and yes, the cheap ones are rebadged chinese ones which they have started doing recently, and it will no doubt erode the brand quality that they built up over many years prior.

Maybe - it was not cheap but it is an Eva Kool - so not all Eva Kools walk on water.

Mike what an odd thing to say we should not endorse a 12v fridge until it is 20yrs old why is that ? If you're not aware of it technology changes so a 20 yr old fridge will most probably have different electronics etc,etc so realistically it's pointless telling someone looking for a new fridge that they should get the same one you have because it will be different. All you can really do it tell them of your experience with that product and if your happy with it.

Yeah mate had my RF60l for over 8 years, even lent it to mates here and there, it hasn't missed a beat, looking to swap the thermostat to digital.

Hi
I also have the RF60L, had it for 2 years and it has been a great unit. I purchased it due to the flexibility of fridge or freezer or both.
Cheers

Notso servicing it from my understanding is usually pulling the cover off the motor and cleaning away the dust I use a vacuum cleaner to get most of it and dip cotton buds in water to clean around the fan blades. My RF47 is 11 yrs old still work well just a bit noisier these days and I replaced the fan last year.
