Kamper Fridge & Energy

Buying Kimberley Kampers for USA Customers

   Fridge and Energy Options

Where in the Kamper do you put the fridge ?
The Gullwing Storage Pak or the SportsRV Unipod can take up to an 85 Quart Fridge..
What is special about The King Kamper Fridge Storage?
The Fridge is stored in a dustproof space. The difficulty is that fridges need ventilation to operate efficiently. There is a fan forced ventilation system with industrial filters that keeps the air flowing but filters out the dust. The fan is a special Japanese ball bearing unit that is whisper quiet.
Our experience with fridges is that the eutectic chest type of unit works most efficiently. Upright conventional fridges loose all their cold energy every time the unit is opened and it is very difficult to have a freezer/fridge option that works effectively. 3 way fridges are not practical in traveling as the propane unit takes some time to settle down.
Can we have a fridge with a freezer ?
Yes. Most of the manufacturers are now incorporating a freezer as either a separate unit or with the feature of separating the bottom layer with polyethylene board.
Can I have a fridge in the Kamper and a freezer in the vehicle on the same battery system?
Yes. The best way to configure this is to have the vehicles unit wired in such a way that when the vehicles ignition is turned off, it isolates the vehicle’s fridge/freezer from the vehicles battery and allows the vehicles’ fridge/freezer to draw on the Kampers battery system through the standard 7 pin socket that connects the Kamper to the vehicle. We used this configuration for our 2003 Test trek with a 78Quart Autofridge in the Kamper and a 85 Quart Waeco unit in the Vehicle. This was very successful. There was 140Ah capacity in the Kamper for this Trek.
