Love At First Sight

When I say “love at first sight” don’t worry its not just about the fridge but it was actually JR!  The first few days we chatted before our date in person he would reference how “he always had cold beer” and I just thought he meant he also had some beers on him because we both share a huge passion for craft beer.  Well on our first in person date he showed me what he really meant….

What a 50 quart size ARB Refrigerator Freezer looks like in back of SUV

I was already impressed when said he would pick me up for the date instead of just meeting him and then he picks me up in a super nice outfitted Range Rover with a beautiful mid night blue color.  How could I be impressed more?  When he opens the back and slides out this 50 quart electric fridge/freezer that is powered off his solar panels on top the roof!  What the….?

Why We Have to Keep The ARB Refrigerator

So the debate is whether to keep our ARB fridge or not.  I say keep it, why?  Well we do have a really nice sized refrigerator in our RV so that’s all we should need but we are craft beer people and I think our 50 quart ARB portable refrigerator should hold our many finds of great craft beer we find along our travels.  The RV fridge should be full of food and the portable fridge full of cans and bottles of deliciousness!  If anyone reading this agrees with me please comment below.  We have plenty of plugin outlets and I can already think of two spots we can fit the ARB portable fridge with no problem.

  1. This is really cool! I have a friend who bought a refrigerator like this and he has been loving it! Him and his family hikes a lot so this has been the perfect investment for them.
    We borrowed it for a weekend once when we went camping I was super impressed, if we were to go camping more i would definitely invest in one.

    And as you said I’m sure it is nice for drinks as well!

    Nice find i would keep it.

    1. Everyone needs to go camping more to connect with nature and get away from the computers.  That is super nice your friend let you borrow his portable fridge because I know most people will not part with them from their vehicles.  But yes thanks we should keep it!

  2. I have had one оf thіѕ fоr six years nоw. I аm a truсk drіvеr аnd thіѕ unіtѕ аrе thе bеѕt оut thеrе. Thе unit drаw vеrу lіttlе electricity; уоu саn stop the truсk and leave іt on fоr days and іt will not dіѕсhаrgе уоur batteries. I know it sounds incredible because most refrigerators will dіѕсhаrgе the truck batteries оvеr nіght. Fоr ѕоmе rеаѕоn thе unіt іѕ аlmоѕt аlwауѕ ѕtор аnd whеn іt ѕtаrt runnіng іt оnlу uѕеѕ a fеw wаttѕ. Mine has аt lеаѕt 750 000 miles аnd уоu could guеѕѕ hоw muсh ѕhаkіng stop аnd go аnd vіbrаtіоn thаt іѕ trаvеlіng аrоund thе US аnd it is still gоіng strong. I knоw іt is pricy but considering thаt it ѕаvеѕ me at lеаѕt 150 dоllаrѕ еvеrу week (45 000+ already) by carrying my оwn fооd compared tо truсk ѕtор prices it hаѕ saved mе thоuѕаndѕ over thе уеаrѕ рluѕ the peace of mine that mу truсk wіll start in thе mоrnіng is priceless. If уоu can аffоrd it buу it. Tор ԛuаlіtу unіtѕ.

    1. Wow!  This is awesome to hear!  I never even thought how great it would be for truck drivers.  I completely agree with you on how it saves money while on the road.  We pack a few lunch meats and always have sandwiches available when off the grid.  Eating out adds up especially traveling throughout the states.  Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us!  Safe travels!
