Best thing ever for our bush camp .
Great !!! No more worry with solar and batteries struggling to run a fridge all night. Uses very little gas. Running for 2 weeks on a 9kg bottle an still plenty of gas left. I run the thermostat on 1.5 out of a possible 4 and keeps everything crisp and makes ice easily. Having a light is a bonus but a switch on the front would be better than having to reach around the back to remove batteries,although you still have to do that when leaving the fridge off for an extended time.Overall an excellent fridge and would recommend them very highly.

Exactly what I was looking for
Happy all around with this fridge. Only a small niggle is the vegetable tray sticks when sliding in and out.
Great size freezer, really worth getting the bigger size.
What an excellent company to deal with too. Love that they are Australian family business.
Would highly recommend. 5 stars from me!

This fridge is beyond my expectations. Client service and backup is excellent.
Gas usage is better than expected.
Overall the fridge is well packaged and very easy to setup and maintain.
The instruction manual is easy to follow and very well written.

I am very happy with my new Bushman's fridge. It is very quick to cool down and works well throughout. Nicely finished and having a light is an added feature you would not know it is a gas fridge.

A giant leap from our previous fridges.
We live in the bush and have been off-grid since 1981. In this time we have had two previous gas fridges , both of a well known international brand. I must say they served us well for a very long time but this new Bushman is in another league. It is super efficient on gas usage , very quiet , so much so I keep putting my hand on the back to make sure I can feel heat to make sure it's working.
We also were very happy with the speed of delivery from time of order as it was transported interstate from Victoria to NSW. The communications between myself and the Bushman staff was prompt and helpful.
I really cant endorse this particular product highly enough.

A huge improvement on the Old Consul (about 30 years old) and works excellently!
Cold? Will freeze in the food compartment, works so well! Once you adjust it right, Perfect! The S/Steel surface needs to be cleaned regularly, doors fine, we haven't had any problems other than finding a fitting for the gas inlet when we first got it.
Purchased in November 2018 at Bushman Fridges for $2,500.00.
we couldnt live without it
easy to operate we go from electric to gas daily and have no problems .We have two one for food and one for beer and I better have a beer now .We enjoy an ice cold beer straight out of the fridge winter or summer ,Up here in the NQ,
Perfect for off grid living. Economical running
Excellent cooling. To cold on full. Perfect at about one third.
Easy to clean and the light inside is a bonus.
Freezer is a very good size and works wonderfully.
These Bushman fridges have no competition in the market. We have a domestic 3 way fridge freezer as well but it does not have half the storage space.
Best Gas Fridge
We live off grid and have had a few gas fridges over the years. The Bushman XCD185-W is quiet, maintains a good temperature in all areas, and is efficient with gas use. It is the right size for us (couple) and fine when we have a number of people staying with us with careful packing. We would definitely recommend it.
Very good, seems to run a 9kg bottle for 20 days
Maintains temp , quiet as a mouse, cleans like any fridge. Easy to light. When leaving it , turning it off it is hard to turn the light off. It would be better if it was on the front control panel. I have changed the hinges to the other side, all good.
