Dual cab or single cab.

Dunno about the water but the thief won't say no....

I set one up in the back of a Navara Dual Cab for a mate. Make sure the mount is secure from a crash safety point of view.

It reads words to the effect:

This fridge is engraved with drivers license for easy identification.

Nudie

Last year you said " these are designed to operate out in the elements!" you were refering to Engels. Why have you changed your position on this.

DISCLAIMER* I have an Explorer Fridge for sale on the trader section*DISCLAIMER

Barty,
Why not look for an Explorer or Trailblazer fridge- both of these are constructed of ALuminium outers and also have a lot better insulation (around 75mm). Both are seen mounted in the rear of utes or on trailer drawbars uncovered. Only drawbacks on these fridges is large size due to capacity and insulation and price. Hope this helps. Cheers
