Not sure if this is the correct section?

Do you travel with your caravan fridge freezer packed or not? If you do how do you ensure that everything arrives still in the fridge and not on the floor or has bounced around so much that the fridge is damaged? Also i fyou have a 220V unit what do you do enroute?

We have a Snomaster 75 and a Waeco50 that we can run in the back of the Everest, is it safer to transport in them or to pack the van fridge freezer?

TIA

Ons het die gewoonte om met n leë yskas te ry. Naweke: Koue goed word in coolerbox saamgery. Dit werk vir ons want langer vakansies staan ons gewoonlik naby aan n groot supermark....dan vat ons niks saam nie....koop alles daar. 

WAARSKUWING:

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

We normally buy stuff were we camp but on our trip last year from Durban to Cape Town we stayed over at different places and travelled with the stuff inside our caravan fridge. 

Our caravan fridge is lockable and we had no damages to the fridge or things falling around. Even with up to 6 hours travelling  the goods inside the fridge were still cold.

I have made a stable pivot lock to secure both doors of a house type 220V fridge/freezer. It is fully packed and we have boxes that fit on the various shelves. Never does anything move while we tow. Cold drinks stay upright in the provided shelf and we use some of it en route. Also take the stuff out in the box when we reach home. The caravan freezer gets used when buying bulk meat but never the fridge when we are at home.

Ek het ook n paar keer groceries op die vloer gekry tot ek die baby Lock's aangesit het. Problem solved.

My fridge freezer in the caravan also has the kiddies lock on.  We pack the fridge with what ever we need for a weekend camping. Going on long leave we usually stock the freezer with the special meat and groceries that we only find at our home area.

Things like farm chickens, krokodile/armadillo's, skilpadjies and special boere wors and so on the rest we buy at holiday destination.

So we basically travel with the fridge fully stocked.

We also pack the fridge before we leave. If you put a few frozen ice bricks in as well, the fridge will stay cold longer.

Thanks again for the replies, we will also be fitting the baby locks.

Quick tip for ice cold beer in 10 minutes.

Fill a bucket with required cans of beer, fill to 70% with cold water and then fill bucket with ice leave to stand for 10 minutes while lowering the steadies. Result ice cold beer.

Ons het ook altyd nie bederfbare goedere, ekstra klere en kamp goedere in die karavaan aangehou om die pakkery te verminder wanneer ons gaan kamp, maar ons het toe vinnig uigevind dat ons in werklikheid vir die RDP's sorg.

Ons pak die yskas vol en maak die deur se knip toe, soms 'n hele ruk voordat ons vertrek. Ons yskas is 'n 12 v / 220 v kompressor yskas, wat outomaties aan die loop bly ongeag of daar kragonderbrekings is, en dit koppel aan die kar se elektriese stelsel wanneer ons ry.

Ek verpes egter die 2.25 liter Coke/Tab ens bottels wat net-net te lank is om regop te staan in die yskas deur. Nou moet hulle oor leun en 'n ekstra bottel se plek opneem.

Be who you are and say how you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

Stem saam met die 2.25L bottels. Weet nie wie het dit besluit nie maar baie onprakties in 'n yskas.
