Looking for a compact freezer

I'm trying to find a freezer that will fit in the back of my Jeep GC for our next summers fishing trip. It seems that there is nothing in the 4-5 cu ft size that will fit. I'm looking for a 110V freezer and not a "portable" type that runs on battery power.

I need a freezer that is less than 30.5" tall.

Small Freezers - Mini, Upright & Portable Freezers at Compact Appliance

This is where I bought my freezer. It's a 4 CF under counter. I do not think you will find a 110VAC freezer that is over 3CF and shorter 33". It was the same problem I ran into when I was trying to get a fridge and Freezer that would fit in the area Ineeded it in. I ended up going to a 4 cf freezer and a smaller (shorter) refrigerator.

We, and our neighbors bought one from Wal-Mart. com and had it sent to the nearest Wal-Mart. It is a Haier (spelling) model and is 110 and works great. We use it in the basement of our MH. We also run it on the Inverter going down the road.

How big's the door on your RV, you could always put in the RV instead of the Jeep .

We purchased a 63QT EdgeStar fridge/freezer from Compact Appliance. It is both 12VDC and 110VAC and fits in the back of my HRR as well as in one of the storage bays under the motorhome. It works very well and having it in the car is great for multiple stop shopping here in Texas when it is hot. It might be worth a look since it is only 20.7 in high. There is a larger 83QT model that fits your height requirement as well.

Freezer

Norcold makes a freezer chest that is 110. It has a selector knob on it to choose either freezer or refrig. Works great.

Solution

I've decided to put a hitch mounted carrier on the back of the Jeep GC and mount a 7 cu ft chest type freezer. I can get a good carrier for under $100 and the tongue weight capacity of the Jeep is 720 lbs. Should be a good solution and I can carry back from Alaska a lot of fish.

We just purchased a Haier 1.3 cu ft Freezer from Walmart.com whiile here in the USA. Cost $158.94 with tax and free shipping site to store. Dimensions 193/4 x 193/4 x 205/16(WDH).

Been using it now for a couple of months in our RV and astonished at how much it holds and freezes stuff quickly and solidly. Unlike our RV Freezer which I don't trust to freeze meat solidly.

Very satisfied with our purchase.

My brother in law put one in the basement of his MH. Found one at Lowes that fit his dimensions. However, he had to take the compressor out in order to lay the freezer on it's back. Lid folds down to access contents.

His is something like a 6-8 cu ft. I love the idea, but DW won't give up the space.

Good dimensions for fitting, but dang you paid a premium on that freezer.

I got a 5 cu.ft Haier chest freezer for the same price a Lowes and simply went in and picked it up.

Usually, the "custom sized", smaller sales volume stuff DOES cost more for those wanting "special" items or sizes...

Theirs was also a upright. Hard to open a chest inside a RV compartment.
Yours was $31.80 a cu ft. At Lowes you could have gotten a better buy for a 14.1 cu ft one for $28.29 a cu ft.

LOL, I dunno what I'd do with that much space, I almost went with a 7 cu ft unit, but the reviews on the bigger unit had a lot of negatives.

Honestly, the best solution for freezer space is to go with the towable garage solution . Then you have a place to park your toad and a spot for your tools and what not. Only problem is with the big buses, you'd run into the issue of finding a place long enough to fit .

perhaps but if you knew the throes we had to go through just to FIND a freezer that size you probably would have some idea how grateful we were to WalMart. We hunted every store between the Ontario border and Florida for a small compact freezer (all we have room for) before finding this one at WalMart.com. We are travelling in a 27BHSS Flagstaff Camper with one slide. The only place we have for a freezer is just inside the door to the camper. Thus the small size and perhaps premium price. It is definitely meeting our needs especially since the freezer in our fridge just packed it in on "Auto". Now it only works on gas.
