Thank you all very much for your ideas! I'm looking in to all of the suggestions. A lot to think about!

To clarify, I'll be full-timing in the camper. There will be no dedicated hunting site. I'll hunt again when I run out of meat/there is room in the freezer.


That changes the equation from what I'm used to seeing. I would still look at a small chest freezer, generator or primarily solar and more batteries on a small utility trailer, before I would swap out the fridge for a freezer.

In that case, I would be looking at the Engle units someone else mentioned.

You need efficiency if you won't be plugged in all the time. These unit are designed for that.

That's the nice thing about beer. You can drink it cold or warm.

I know this idea is pretty far out there, and it would require a lot of labor,. But you could also can it. That would be a good way to go if you don’t want to get a freezer, don’t want to change the arctic fox,

We carried a " dorm " size freezer in our trailer for a while , ran it off an inverter and a pair of golf cart batts. We could go 3 and 4 days without recharging .

Powering it full time presuming you'll be in the back country quite a bit (I would if I was FT in a TC!) will be a challenge. I'm not familiar with propane freezers though.
Was gonna suggest little chest freezer on a hitch rack but that ain't practical full time.

Not a lot of room in a TC to put a freezer even if you run a generator daily to keep it frozen. Only thing I can think is if you don't use the oven you might fit one in place of the stove and just use a campstove or portable cook top on top of it. And a 120v pizza oven for when you gotta have a frozen pizza or biscuits or ......

there are a lot of reviews on youtube for 12volt ref/freezers. That is what some of the nomads living in there vans cars or campers use. Many run them on solar power.
