anyone recognize the make/brand of this fridge?

Does anyone recognize this fridge/icebox/cooler? Brand?

I've been thinking that when I upgrade from an Igloo icechest I'd like a top-loader rather than a front-loader. Aside from not enjoying kneeling to rummage in the fridge, I would reckon that the top loader would be more efficient that a front loader since less cold air is lost when it is opened (at least, that's the case for conventional freezers).

I have a 47 ARB fridge/freezer. I love it. It runs on both DC and AC current so you can plug it in at the house or your vehicle. Goes down to 0 degrees. Stays cold and has low battery shutoff for vehicle in case it draws to much amps from starter battery during run time.

Yep, I have the same one too, though I did just buy a 63 qt ARB to station in my teardrop.

I have a 63 quart ARB as well and its really great but if you need it it hinge like the in the picture any of the ARBs won't work for you. They hinge end to end not side to side.

Thanks for the ID and suggestions.

So, am I correct in assuming that a top-loader is more efficient (in terms of cold air not lost when opened) that is a front loader? This is the case for conventional chest freezers.

Thanks!

You are correct, the top door will not lose the cold air as the front doors.
And by that aspect they will not need to cool that amount of air each time.
