Yep I'll wait and see how long it lasts. I never drove an expensive car and always got where I needed to go......
Life is a gamble, especially this lifestyle.  So far it's a gem. Low amps and plenty of room. Since never having a fridge on the road, it is great to bed able to cook and freeze portions.

I look forward to your review!  These are certainly an economical choice, so anxious to hear how you like it and, more importantly, how it does on power consumption.

PS:  There seems to be a bit of a "revolution" in 12 volt compressor fridges -- a lot of competition for the $800 ARBs -- also evidenced by the deep discounts on Engels.  Either competition is heating up, or they are dropping the quality (I hope it's the former).

I think it's the introduction of cheaper units made in China that is driving prices down. highdesertranger

I notice in Bob's new build video that he no longer had the Whynter and was using an older Dometic - in a space designed to vent properly.

I sold the Whynter with my cargo trailer, but it was working perfectly when it left. I believe I had it for 4 years and it was zero problems.

The reason I let it go and switched to the Truckfridge (Indel B) was the Whynter was too big for the van. The Truckfridge was tall and smaller at the base so I fit in a van much better. It was also much cheaper than the others and they had a branch In Tuscon. If it ever needs service, I can take it to them for service.

It's always comfort versus freedom. I wanted more freedom and was willing to lose the comfort for it

I actually just got around to purchasing it.  I bought it through Dyers for $335.99 on July 4th, and it arrived today July 6th... Free Shipping too!  Assuming it works, it appears to be an awesome value give that it's about the same price as a CF18.

I'll report back soon!
