Thanks. Does it let you have both a fridge and a freezer function at the same time, or is the whole interior one temperature?
Hi, the fridge is all one temperature but goes down to -8 degrees but if using as a fridge you can still make ice for all those G&T’s. It is also controlled via you mobile if you wish.

Ooohhh where did you get the name sticker please?
We looked around, and eventually went to www.vinylletteringonline.co.uk. We chose a number of different fonts to be made up so we could pick what suited. Our decals are 40mm high. The font chosen does make a difference to how the decal looks in the flesh, the length and spacing changes, so it's a good idea to order a few - they are not expensive and very easy to apply.

I didn’t know about the shower hose pocket. I did see the hose stored in a flimsy polystyrene? holder over the gas bottle when I had a test drive. Is this the one you ordered?

hi Dripster, perfect fit! Which model is it? The 50l? Is it good? Much cheaper than anything else similar.
Yes, 50l. This one: https://www.dellonda.co.uk/products...eezer-cool-box-for-car-camping-led-12-24-230v

I've run it at home, and gets down to temperature pretty quickly, will be using it on a trip for the first time in a couple of weeks. Chose this one because it just fits and has two areas that you can run at different temps, e.g. one as a fridge and one as a freezer, or both the same.

I wonder how noisy it is?
I always wonder why the Dometic is so expensive. This is half the price so very keen to hear how you get on with it. Thanks

It doesn't seem that noisy, a bit like sleeping next to your fridge in the kitchen (although it does have a small fan), but of course I haven't tried either yet! Plus of course it only kicks in when it needs to. We're away in a couple of weeks for the weekend but we'll probably chuck it in the awning during the night anyway.

I did a bit of research before I got it, some good UK reviews on Amazon (which you may take with a pinch of salt) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dellonda-P...er-Camping/dp/B08CPTCS3D?ref_=ast_sto_dp&th=1, there are some good videos on YouTube (mainly from the US), and it's identical in all but badge to the Alpicool 50l one (https://en.alpicool.com/details/overviews.html?id=6), which also has good reviews.

I have no doubt that the Dometic/Waeco ones will outlast it, be more efficient and quieter, and if I was going to live in the van full time I may go for those. But for the price and the convenience of a freezer section too (we're going to staying at a site with an ice cream parlour and I want to bring some back!) I think this is a good bet. I'm sure it will be better than our 7 year old Aldi coolbox!

In a month's time I may be crying and ordering a Dometic of course.

How funny it's also an Alpicool. Very helpful thanks, more reviews to go from since there weren't many on the Dell'onda name...
