    In my case, it's a hacked front windshield heat barrier, generic flavor IIRC. I cut and Velcroed it to fit. Cost around $15.

    DUDE! I work for Lowe's! Lowe's is the official home improvement store of Land Cruisers! No plugs for the Orange store allowed! :bang:

    I used that for insulation on y sleep platform. I was going to use it for my Edgestar but didn't know if anyone had anything a little more "finished". I'm going to sew up a cover to go over the reflectix.

    I was considering this to hide the insulation and cover up most of the scratches on my fridge.

    now that I contributed to the thread...

    WHOOPSIE DAISY, sorry to mention the homeless despot! Anyhow there are blankets for these but once you see the price you'll be duct taping one like Phil!

    I got excited for a second. Im looking for another one for the wife new 4runner. That way she doesn't have to complain about it being difficult getting the groceries out of mine in the summer.

    I'm contemplating selling my 80qt that I got last year. Works great but I think I might be going another direction...

    I believe there were two. I grabbed an 80qt for $357, I guess the price has gone up some. I found this thread a few months ago and have been checking every day, several times a day. I was hoping for a smaller one for my wife's Outback, but was glad to get a larger one for my 80. The double secret probation technique for getting one of these is to check to see if any are available while you are sitting on the toilet and make sure your wallet is on the table in the entryway! I will post here if I see them available again. Happy hunting.

    BTW, in case anyone was wondering, I didn't get this. They canceled my order a week after and said that someone had just beaten me to it before the website could update. I called them tried to turn this into a good deal on a new one, but the best they would do was 10% off, which didn't seem great. Might be worth getting a Dometic instead...

    Yeah, was thinking about them too, but I think there may be more value for the Dometic. The 63qt, Dual zone ones are $654 and the accessories are MUCH cheaper (like the travel blanket is around $35 and the slides are something like half). I guess when you factor the Engel reliability there is value in keeping it for a long time, but their 60qt size is something like a grand, even with the discount, and the dual zone ones are even more...
