It will be my only "appliance" other than the Penthouse lights. I will also have a solar panel in the 50 watt range to charge the aux. batt.
My buddy who is a Van Camper has the Waeco Coolmatic 52 quart. He has beat it to death and it still works great; 4 years.
The 5o quarts are movable by one person when loaded and the 80 is a two man.
About the only thing he has done is to replace the electric connector. Made it so that when you yank it out, it doesn't damage it.
This Waeco (on my Wish List)
has both 12v/24 and 110V (Switches automatically to 110 when plugged in to shore power):
