Looking for the Perfect Campervan Fridge for Your Travels?

< back

At Stuart Insurances, we understand just how important having the right camper insurance is to protect you when you’re enjoying the open road. However, another really important thing on those long drives is a fridge, as otherwise many of those provisions you took could end up spoiling quite quickly.

Well, that’s something we look at now, as we look at a few of the things that you should be looking out for so that you feel perfectly at home when you’re away from home. 

The Different Types of Refrigerator

You’ll have a range of styles to choose from when deciding which one to put in your camper van and depending on your needs, there is usually an option that will suit you best.

Common varieties include:

  • The Chest Fridge - One of the most popular varieties due to its large capacity, its relative low cost and the ease of installation.
  • The Upright Fridge - more like the one you have at home, with a front-opening door and shelves, it’s a popular option that offers less room than a chest fridge.
  • The Drawer Fridge - Similar in nature to the chest fridge, it’s a more expensive option that usually comes on wheels. Usually needs to be built into your camper’s interior.

Your ideal choice will depend on factors like your budget, your campervan interior and how much storage space you’d like to have.

Other Considerations

Being as your camper fridge isn’t used indoors, there are other factors other than the style that camper owners need to consider when choosing the best fridge for their needs. They include:

Power Draw - as not every camper refrigerator will be equal in this regard and it can have an effect on your camper’s battery 

Additional Features - The way in which your camper fridge’s door opens can have a big bearing on the right choice, as can whether you want to have a separate freezer section

Warranties - Your campervan fridge can go wrong just like anything else, so you need to think about what kind of warranty it comes with. 

Before you do actually take the plunge and choose a refrigerator for your camper van, it’s always advisable to take a look at a few online reviews. Read all of them too - not just the ones with five stars, as they’ll tell you something about the good and the bad side of the product.
