What's A Good 12V Freezer For Tractors?

Does anyone have one of those that fits good in a tractor? Those big 50+ quart coolers don't look like they'd fit so good. I need something to store up to 3 weeks of meat, because the tiny freezer in the built-in fridge won't hold enough.

Do you use your top bunk or is it up against the back wall? I store a lot of stuff up there and my freezer fits very well with all my other totes of things.

Alpicool or Iceco are good brands. I bought an offbeat brand that had given me some fits in the Freightliners I drove. In this truck (a Pete), it has maintained its lowest temperature very well. All my meats have to be taken out a good day ahead of time to thaw, because they are a brick.

I should have gotten a bigger one, but then it would be too hard for me to get it up on the upper bunk. So my 45 quart has to do.

I have an ICECO for the past several years. I'm not on the truck, but I'll get some pictures and model details for you tomorrow.

This one rides in my top bunk, sideways. The handles serve as the upper anchor points for the ratchet straps that hold the basket that my CPAP rides in. The only issue I have had is that I accidentally snagged the power cord and unplugged it from the back of the unit. That was an expensive oopsie. Now, I have the cord looped up over the handle, and use a Velcro tie to secure it, so if it gets snagged, no biggie.

CPAP is a breathing assist device which is worn over the mouth or nose. It provides nighttime relief for individuals who suffer from Sleep Apnea.

I’ve got an alpicool as well smaller than naenae’s mine is a 38 or 40 qt. it sits on the floor behind my drivers seat. I train so bigger in the top bunk doesn’t work for my truck. I put about 2 weeks of stuff in there. I am good with that as usually about every 10-12 days I dip into a Walmart for bread vegetables fruit and such anyway.

If you have an inverter, you might consider a 120v unit. They are much cheaper, and you have the option of home use.
