Tonight I have good news and bad news .

The good news is :The Grizzly , and Yeti both will clear the tonneau .

The bad news : Neither of those options will pass Kimbo's budget  :'(

Still searching and reading .


Do you want me to send you the Yeti for you to "try"?

Got my Engel 25 in today...and against all odds, it fits.

Pictured: With room to spare, surprisingly.




So, just in case there was any doubt, we now KNOW one of these would fit under the trailer tonneau.

If they made a 45 I think it would fit .

 Just found a new brand to look at called Frost Bite. Not much info out there , but they appear to be a nice roto moulded cooler for less than $200 .

 That was fast , they are made in Thailand and parts are being "made". They are supposed to have a lifetime warranty , but with no real presence anywhere how do you get it honored ?

 If I could get us a group buy for Grizzly's at cost plus 5% would anyone else be interested ?

What size?


I spoke too soon , the Grizzlys have been discontinued and replaced by Yukons which are made in Texas by Igloo . Sadly they are taller than I can use , but I should be able to get the deal for others if theres enough interest .

I'll just leave this here because it's, well, the Coolest.  Trust it... it wouldn't lie to you about this...   8)

Obviously, I can't vouch for its quality yet, and it may be a bit tall for you, but maybe you could talk the guy into a little redesign if you were so inclined...

I love that thing.  I was debating getting in on it, but realized I rarely use a cooler.

Thats pretty neat , but way more technical than I need . I am most likely going to get a grizzly as it seems to be the only one that will fit under my tonneau .
