Great little fridge!

published

Very happy with how it has performed so far.
Being used in tractors and harvester and taken on a two week camping trip.
Can’t fault it, holds a consistent temperature, runs quiet, parts appear well made and stays cold for a long period when not powered sitting in the Ute.

Does the job.

published

It’s a pretty well thought out fridge in regards to storing tall bottles and cans. Comes with a cover, shoulder strap, tie downs, rubber feet etc. For some reason I thought the cup holders were chilled…they’re not. My mistake! Would’ve been cool if they were. The plug is a bit ordinary, socket not recessed for the cable/plug, so it’s quite vulnerable. If something brushes past it the plug can pull out easily. Which it did on day two of our trip. This should be improved. It’s a portable fridge so it doesn’t have a permanent spot in our cars where the power cable can be set up more securely. Anyway a bit of gaffer tape sorts it out. Would just like to buy something that does need a home fix with tape, cable ties etc to make it better.

Purchased in for $950.

Hi Darren,
Oh no! It might be worth getting in touch with Department of the Interior, or Cruiser Consoles, as both of those companies make centre console kits for the Roadie and 70 series.

Exactly what I wanted

published

I wanted a smaller fridge for those shorter trips and this one is perfect. It takes up so little room and fits enough in it for a weekend away. It keeps everything perfectly cool and is very robust.

Great, reliable

published

Used as a centre console second fridge, has been great so far everything works well very quiet and seems to be efficient on power.
Could maybe use an internal light and the temp control is very easy to bump which has resulted in freezing a fridge full of drinks.

Purchased in for $900.

Bushman Roadie not cheap but excellent quality

published

I use the roadie as a drinks fridge and sometimes as a freezer. It works very well doing both. The current draw at 2.5 amps is worth noting too. I hardly notice the draw on the battery. It’s not a cheap fridge but it is good quality and it fitted in the small space I had perfectly.

Hi Anthony,
Thanks for writing a review.
I totally agree, the Bushman 15L is top dollar but extremely high quality throughout. There really is nothing else like it and it is worth every penny.
Cheers, Tommy.

Brilliant little fridge

published

Fitted this little fridge into my 79 series cruiser removed console and put unit in its place, if i could make one tiny suggestion it would be that if the lid opened from the front in this type of installation it would be absolutely perfect. Cooling is excellent on 4, uses very little power, great height for arm rest. way out in front great job guys!

what a good little work horse fridge

published

what a little buety. i keep it running 24/7 in the shed on 240v power. keep it full of drinkds and then when we go out anywhere i just grab it, plug into the 12v and cold drinks all day long. the quality of build is awesome, power usage is awesome. as it doesnt have a basket like my other fridge i hope the cans of drink dont rub the inner coating to much.

Hi Kym, thanks for the review. The inner casing is pretty tough on the Roadie, but if you are on corrugations etc then it is a good idea to use something to stop things rubbing together and into the fridge Normal roads - no problems. Enjoy

Hi Leah, thanks for the question. Every car is slightly different and I'm not sure about a Hilux. Best thing to do is measure up the width and length of the area you have to see if it will fit first. Cheers, Tommy.

What is the average current draw in amps please. I would like to know how long a 100Ahrs battery will run the fridge for before needing to be recharged.

I need a 15L freezer that can be set at minus 11 as I want freeze blocks to go in my 20L esky when needed to extend my camping time out in the bush and to do the same thing when I stay on my yacht. It is the best way I know to get the most out of your fridge. It it possible to get it set to -18 degrees celcius?

Hi Michael,

Yes, the Roadie will do this. If you want it to operate only as a freezer let us know and we will programme it accordingly
