First off, do not want this to turn into a 12v vs. ice.
Gonna be an ice but between, Engel, Tropic and Yeti.
Want something in the 50 quart size but here is the best I can do.
Engel 65 $265
Yeti 45 $279
Yeti 65 $329
Tropic Down Under 55 $189
Tropic Down Under 66 $212
My first chice would have been the Yeti 45 but for a couple less bucks I can get the Engel 65.
Then the Yeti 65 is another 65 bucks over the 45qt.
The Down Under comes in and blows both of them away price wise.
Gander Mountain has a few of the older Yeti Sherpa 45`s for 200 even.
Based soley on price I`d jump at the DU`s or the Yeti Sherpa. But the best deal seems to be the Engel.
Biggest fear is getting some big heavy monster that will be a real PITA to have and use. Is a 65 getting close here ? Perhaps I should be looking at the DU`s for ease of use.
Yeti and Engel have known, proven track records. How about the Down Unders ?
No interest in the Colemans or Igloo`s.
What to do ??
