Our Best 12V Canopy Fridge

Our 85 litre DC85-X is a real ripper of a fridge, and our top selling 12V upright fridge for 4×4 canopies.

It fits easily into most campers, caravans, 4×4 canopies, tiny houses and boats. For such a compact fridge, the amount of usable storage space is excellent.

We use an oversize refrigeration unit for this model, which creates an efficient cooling system with overall low power consumption. This makes the DC85-X our go-to fridge for 4X4 canopies.

All DC85-X fridges are supplied with a mounting kit and shipping is free Australia wide.
