The Waeco CR50 was a great compressor fridge. We have used them personally for many years and they have been a must have item on all of our previous trips. With a freezer compartment that kept a constant -10 in our own van it allowed us to take boxes of frozen fish fingers and sausages away with us to Morocco in case Isaac (aged 8 at the time) fell ill and couldn’t stomach any local food. He is really lean and cant really afford to loose any weight to stay healthy. The freezer is also perfect for rapidly cooling warm beers for the grown ups too!
We did think though that we don’t aways need the freezer on UK or European trips and a bigger fridge would have been a bit more handy. Well it looks like Waeco have listened to their customers feedback and have now updated the design of the old CR50 and have now launched the CRX50 that has a removable freezer that gives you the option of a bigger fridge!
The new CRX50 is also loaded with a whole bunch of new features too that add to the usability of a great well thought out fridge.
With the added benefits of having a low consumption of energy (so low that it can feasibly be run off solar panels!), the Waeco CRX50 2 Way Compressor Fridge has an ample 48L refrigerator capacity which can also maintain between 5 – 7 degrees even under the pressure of tropical temperatures!
What makes the Waeco CRX50 different from a standard CR50 model?
The Waeco CRX50 2 Way Caravan & Motorhome Fridge still has all the outstanding features of the original, standard model but with the added bonus of a completely versatile configuration in the form of a removable freezer compartment, meaning that you can adapt and use your Waeco CRX50 to suit your needs whenever and wherever you need it. As a result, the Waeco CRX50 Compressor Fridge can be used as a conventional fridge/freezer, full fridge or full freezer. The Waeco CRX50 also now features a slightly chamfered rear wall, this helps clear the strengthening pieces found in many vans at floor level, and also helps for a ‘snug’ fit in boats where the hull turns inwards near the bilges.
