Any one in Brisbane want to buy a brand new 47l Evercool fridge (RF47) with a transit case for $870? You can normally get the fridge on its own for about $950 without a lot of haggling.The transit case is usually about $100 I suppose, so its about $1150 worth for $870. The $870 is if I buy two but of course I only want one. Anyone want to join me?

Oskar,
Sounds interesting, a few more details, like is it a fridge freezer? Does it come with 240v as well as 12? What sort of wattage do they run. And finally can I get it for $770 without the bag? I live in Mansfield. Andrew...

Thanks for your replies (still no takers??) The price is $870 with the transit case - that is the deal ( from a camping store on the northside of Brisbane). I am purchasing mine this Saturday (24/05/03). Evacool, Evercool, Everkool, what's in a name - anyway it's the budget model from the makers of the fabulous Ev............ool eskys, eskies, eskey's. I am purchasing the RF47 for a couple of reasons but one of the really "cool" features is that each of the RF series has separate freezer and fridge sections which has some obvious benefits. There is only "mother and father" in our car nowadays so the "47" is the ideal size for us. The transit case keeps the fibreglass finish like new.
Thanks for the trick with the high density rubber shockies.
You have to buy/acquire the 240V kit as aseparate item.
Check the archives for the specs. & comparo's.
I'm not interested in becoming a distributor - sorry!

Oskar, ask them if they'll give you further discounts if you buy 3 or 4. These are great fridges and the ideal size (we also carry a 60 litre EverKool esky). I wasn't in the market yet but could be tempted.Be good, or be quick.

The Evakool transit bag only protects unit from scratching. Absolutely no insulating properties at all. Be careful with the RF units, as they do not have suspension around the compressor. Having said that, a piece of 10 or 20mm high density rubber from Clark Rubber will alleviate any probs. I recently purchased a Dual Temp 70l unit and it seriously is the ducks guts!! Freezes to about -16 or -18 and fridge to -1 (if i want) or +5 (if i want) or anywhere in between (if i want). Also have had no issues starting my 100s after three days running on economy mode (mind you it was not that hot). I do not use an isolator or anything either, however do carry a Honda genset that charges 12v batteries if i need it.

Good luck with you bulk buy, they are truly a fantastic product.

Oskar, Like Sloth I thought you meant Evakool which are a very good fridge. However their website doesn't seem to mention a 47litre model RF47. Just check whether you are getting an Evakool or an Evercool which may well be a cheap imitation. If you are getting a 50l Evakool for that price you will be doing very well. I have friends with one and they are very happy with it.
All the best!

Mick, EvaKool (forever misspelt as Evercool) does not advertise the RF (Retro-Fit) line on their web-site. The RF is basically one of their ice-boxes/eskies with the danfoss compressor (retro) fitted externally to the box, rather than integrated into it at time of manufacture. As mentioned above, in this model the compressor does not enjoy the benefits of "suspension". It also potentially suffers a greater risk of damage from bumps and knocks as it "sticks out". For these reasons, the RF models are cheaper than the ED models. However, $770 is still a damn good price - I was looking at paying close to $1500 for the 70 litre RF as a "show special" price at last year's (2001) Camping & Outdoor Show.Be good, or be quick.
