High efficiency freezers

hubby has this little freezer with a huge amount of insulation that requires a surprising small amount of electricity to run and he wants to install it into our RV-- anyone have added freezer space and is there a pro and con list for having it?

I see it taking up space. But he insists you still are better off if you buy on sale and have some freezer space for food.

I'm not so sure.

At the rate he is gutting and fussing, I may never get to USE the RV!

Some have. Some dont.
We prefer to save space and weight.

We enjoy shopping for mostly fresh foods, and our fridge freezer is quite big enough, but we still sometimes find frozen stuff we did not know we had.

Sounds like your case is just the opposite as mine.........., It took a lot of years to learn this, for some reason unknown, but if she is happy, and gets things the way she wants them, we are both happier.......

I installed a freezer in the basement, she complained. Now she thinks it is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Let him install it and you will see how handy it is.

We love the extra freezer space. We stay sometimes especially in the winter at spots away from a good grocery store. Some stores don't stock the bread we like, (sara lee, honey wheat) and we buy two or three loafs and freeze it. Just as fresh as the day it was baked when we take it out. Also if you like some of the frozen entre's that are available, you don't have room in the freezer so there is another example. If you will eat left overs then you can freeze them and take them out later. It is a uneanding list of things. I think you should install it.

Well, I already said OK, he likes to have me cook a bunch of stuff ahead of time, freeze it, and just warm it up so most meals don't take very long. Last large cooking project was 120lbs of hamburger cooked and sliced into patties then frozen in small baggies to be added to steamed veggies.

So, freezer space can be good, and I may be glad to have it.

I just wish he wasn't so sure that everything he plans is perfect and would actually LISTEN so our RV might reflect me too.

We have 1 in the basement (20" X 20" X20") we keep mounted and another we put under the dinette on long trips. Don't know cubic feet but run both on the inverter when traveling.
