    Do I need a freezer? I am looking at an Engel for our new camper - the biggest unit I can get that is not too tall for the storage is the 60L (57) version but I really can't work out if we need a dedicated freezer section. So do I go with the MT60FCP which as 33L fridge and 25L freezer IIRC or go the MT60FP model which is 57L all fridge. Over the next few years we hope to be doing longer trips so maybe a week or a bit longer between resupplies. Thoughts?

    Edited to add: we still have our old 39L Engel which stays in the cruiser.

    What about running the 39 as a freezer. Might be a bit big but you will certainly freeze a lot of food..

    I bought the 60 litre engel and we'll just do what we have done in the past - get some meat cryovacced and put it in the bottom. If we start going a long time between resupplies then I can use the 39 l engel as a freezer as G&M suggested.

    Hey Hauler,

    You can't go wrong with the Engel and 60 litre is a great size. My 40 litre fridge serves me and 1 other well. However after that it is a bit small.

    Cryvovacced is a good idea. The other option is to freeze your meat. It is surprising how long it lasts frozen in the fridge.

    Yes I meant to say get the meat cryovacced then freeze it then put in the bottom. We have done that on previous trips just using the 39L Engel and worked fine although can be a bit of a process to get stuff out of the fridge - it's always buried under everything else. :-)
