Engel Group by is a go.

The Engel group buy is a go. You have until next Friday (May 20th) to send me your request. Any of the portable top loading fridge freezers and accessories on the ENGEL website are eligible. Once I receive your order I will send you a Paypal invoice and once all the Paypal invoices have been paid the order will be placed. These are for local pick up in the Pacific Northwest only. PM for details.

A pallet of Engel fridges are on their way to Portland.

Question for everyone who owns Engels about fridge slides. Who makes them? I'm debating if I should get a fridge slide specifically to fit the MT60F-U1 fridge that I ordered or if should get a cargo slide similar to this one. Does anyone make D90 cargo slides?

Why get a slide at all? You should be able to open the lid in a D90 easily unless you have some kind of drawer system or raised platform.

I'm building a shelf that will go on top of the fridge.

The engle slide I have seen is more a lock assembly that you slide the fridge into and it locks it in place. The arb fridge has a true slide but I was not impressed when I saw one so went without on the arb fridge. Looking forward to my new Engel! Thanks Carl!

Engel USA sells the transit slide locks. Engel AUS sells the fridge cargo slides but they are to expensive to bring or some BS like that. Front Runner makes them but I'm not sure about fit.

They don't offer one for the fridge I am ordering, unless I am missing something.

Correct. They only have lock downs for the smaller fridges.

Opinions on size

Does anyone own the MT45 or the MT60 Engel fridge? I'm having second thoughts about the MT60 that I ordered. Its UUUGE. Considering its going into my D90, should I have ordered the MT45? Is the MT60 overkill for 1-2 people?

I've mocked it up here.

45 is fine for a 90 with two people. Only seen a 60 in a pick up.

I have a 50 quart ARB fridge that is more than adequate for 2 people on an extended trip to eat out of. Unless you are bringing a whole turkey the smaller Engel unit should work well.

Sounds like I may have gone a little overboard and ordered the wrong fridge. The MT60 is also 19 lbs heavier than the MT45.

I say give the 60 a shot. I find that a 45 is very cramped for just me and too small for trips beyond 5-6 days of single-person meals without resupply when fresh meats and veggies are involved.

Thanks Chris.

Do you keep beverages in there as well?

I can imagine that when you throw a sixpack or three in there along with food it would fill up in a hurry.

It depends on the person....and how long you need to carry food. I find 45 is fine.

As to the beer, you only need an evening's supply in there at once, so it depends how much you drink per day.

This. I also have a small Yeti cooler to keep clean ice cold for drinks and as an emergency cooler to keep my daughters insulin cold if the ARB failed.

I have a Yeti 45 which technically is 37.5 quarts and it's too small for my use (granted 1/3rd of the contents is ice). I would never bring both.

Last fall I borrowed my friends Luna Weekender which is 52.75 quarts. The Luna fridge portion is: 42.25 quart (40L). The freezer is: 10.5 quart (10L.) I easily filled it up for a 7 day trip.

I'm planning for two weeks in Baja this fall. Mostly off the grid.

Two weeks of supplies in a fridge and you would need two fridges or not bring much that needs refrigeration. That is a long time between re-supply.
