Proven quality brands All models of camping fridge freezer I've recommended are from Engel, Waeco, ARB, Bushranger or Evakool which have long proven track records for building great camping fridge freezers and also have extensive service networks so there is help available around the country if you need it.
Next, what size portable fridge freezer do I need?
The most common or 'standard' size camping fridge, 40L fridges are great for two or three people over a long weekend away. 50L = 72 cans. 50L camping fridge models are suitable for a whole week's adventure for a couple, or a long weekend for a family of four. 60 to 65L = 106 cans.
Else, which fridge brand is best in Australia? The Best Fridge in Australia for 2020: Westinghouse, Samsung, LG
Best French Door Fridge: LG 570L Slim French Door Fridge Freezer.
Runner Up: Samsung 719L French Door Refrigerator.
Best Side by Side Fridge: LG 668L Side By Side Refrigerator.
Runner Up: Westinghouse 620L Side By Side Fridge.
Best Top Mount Fridge Freezer: Westinghouse 340L Top Mount Refrigerator.
As a result, is Engel or waeco better?
Waeco haven't been around as long as Engel so haven't proven themselves to be as long lasting as yet. Engel has much better (not more efficient but more robust) compressor.
Are Engel fridges worth the money?
There is a lot to be said about Engel's reliable history, but you pay extra for this and sacrifice a little on efficiency. You don't get this reliable history with a Dometic CFX yet, but the efficiency, functionality and lower price tag make them great value for money.

To keep the fridge running while the vehicle is parked, you need plenty of reserve battery power. ... So a dual battery system is a must. There are a few ways the second battery can be wired into the vehicle, depending on its intended use and the system flexibility required.
Under ideal conditions your Engel 12-Volt Refrigerator Freezer could be run for many hours on just battery power. Under the worst combination of conditions, accessories could potentially deplete the battery in 10 to 20 minutes. Some vans have 10 or 12 bulbs lighted when the interior lights are on.
