When you’re talking about a must-have appliance to make the most of van life, what’s the one piece of gear that every adventure van enthusiast can agree on? A good 12V fridge. A good 12V fridge is one of the biggest investments you’ll make when building your van but totally worth it! Keeping your food cold and fresh means bringing the comforts of home on the road.
By the time you’ve equipped your rig with the essentials, the last thing you may want to do is spend another $1000+ on one fridge (12 volt refrigerators aren’t cheap!!!). Luckily, you no longer have to spend quite that much in order to keep your food and drinks ice cold. The Bodega Cooler RV Fridge gives you all the convenience you need, at a reasonable cost.
When most of us were growing up, the van fridges we used on vacation weren’t great. They were bulky and ate up a lot of space and power. However, advancements in 12v refrigerator technology over the past several years have given us many amazing options to choose from. Modern van fridges are energy efficient, well-insulated, and can be charged directly via solar power.
We did a LOT of research before investing in a 12V dual zone fridge, and finally made our choice based on a combination of specifications and budget. In our opinion, Bodega Cooler RV refrigerators are the best overall value for vanlife. They offer an excellent combination of top quality components, performance on par with higher end fridges, and affordable pricing that’s tough to beat.
The refrigerator comes in capacities of 1.6, 2.3, and 3 cubic feet, providing ample space for food and drink storage needs. For our installation we installed the 2.3 cubic feet model. The 2.3 cubic foot model measures 16.97″D x 18.5″W x 24.84″H inches allowing the Bodega 12 Volt RV refrigerator to fit in most RVs, Vans or Buses.
The Bodega 12 Volt RV Refrigerator uses advanced compressor technology to provide energy-efficient cooling. With an energy consumption of only 60 watts, it is one of the most efficient 12 Volt RV refrigerators on the market. Bodega RV refrigerator has 2 modes Max (Fast Cooling) and ECO (Energy Saving), which is energy-saving and environmentally friendly. Two different modes can be adjusted as your need.
It has a compact size that makes it easy to fit into tight spaces, such as small RV, Van or Bus kitchens. Additionally, it has a sleek black finish that gives it a modern look and blends in well with any interior.
The Bodega RV refrigerator can be configured as a refrigerator, freezer, or both simultaneously. The dual cooling allows the temperatures to be set independently. The freezing to refrigeration range of the fridge is from -4℉ to 46℉ (-20℃ to 8℃) . Controlling the Bodega fridge’s cooling zones is conveniently done using the digital control panel on the front or with the Bodega mobile app.
Don’t let the Bodega RV Fridge’s smaller size fool you; it is packed with features. The door is reversible to ensure the mini fridge-styled cooler will work where you need it. You can customize the fridge’s interior set-up to suit your needs; options include a removable freezer shelf, a wire shelf, a crisper drawer, egg tray, and removable door bins.
Bodega really strives to provide as much value as possible without drastically sacrificing quality. With the use of high-quality compressors in all of the refrigerators (which are their life’s blood), they are perfect for vanlife or recreational use. Plus, Bodega RV fridge and freezer offers 5 Years Life Span on the compressor and 1 Year warranty on all other parts. So If you’re looking for the convenience of cold food and the luxury of frozen treats during a road trip look no further than Bodega Cooler.
Boedga Cooler is fairly new to the vanlife game, but they’ve come out swinging with many innovations. They offer a range of products to suit everyone’s needs. Their product line is diverse ranging from portable coolers to solar panels, and everything in between.
We also love their portable solar panels. The advanced solar cells on the solar panel provides a higher conversion efficiency up to 21% outperforming comparable solar panels on the market in similar situations.
Their portable panel comes with 4 kickstands, making it super easy to set up and making the panels stand firmly. A practical carrying bag is included for easy transport. Magnetic pads on the solar panel allow the solar panel to be folded up tightly and carried on our favorite off-grid journeys.
The combination of Bodega RV Fridge and solar panels does more than just for the ease and comforts of vanlife. Their benefits during disasters can’t be understated! I can imagine the Bodega RV refrigerator and the solar panels could be a lifesaver in natural disaster situations, preserving essentials. Whether you are struck by wild fires, storms, earthquakes, or hurricanes you can at least rely on fresh food when everything else around you is not working.
Overall, Bodega Cooler’s RV fridge is an excellent choice for those who want a reliable, energy-efficient refrigerator for their RV, Van or Bus. This RV fridge will meet your needs and hold up to the daily grind of life on the road, all while staying within your budget.
