Just FYI, Isotherm and Truckfridge are the same.
Truckfridge makes no fridges. They have always been rebranded IndelB and Vitrifrigo units. Many of these companies are in bed together these days and just selling rebrands of eachother's designs. This is fine of course IMO. I'm not trying to split hairs, just to help people understand.
In this case, A Truckfridge or Isotherm is an IndelB. Sometimes it's obvious, sometimes the door style or design is different.
I prefer Truckfridge because they've always had the best prices on what I needed. I have, so far, purchased I think 5 Truckfridge TF130's. One has been running 24/7 in my work truck for about 3.5 years.
Dometic, for their part, is buying up everyone. I have no idea which of the many DC fridges these days are Dometics with different names.....or vice versa.
If you are looking for a fridge look at the compressor brand and specs. The best two are Secop (was Danfoss long ago) which is in Indel and Vitrifrigo and many others and the Swing compressor in Engel fridges.
