Portable Freezer?

We are planning on a cross country trip and would like extra freezer space. My searches have brought up Engel, Waeco, Norcold, ARB. I plan on keeping it in the back of the burb on 12v and plugging into the outside 110V receptacle of the AS when we hookup at night. We bought the 08 Classic 31 that we have not picked up yet so I dont know if there is room to store it in the wardrobe closet. It seems that the expense is so great one would have to have the larger units like 45qt. to 80 or 110qt. to make the whole affair worthwhile.
I heard the Engel and ARB units can be tilted up to 30 degrees w/o a problem.
Does anybody want to give their opinions on these models?
I had looked into using a 3.5cft 115v model say from Sears but the inverter size etc. is just not practical. These portable units cut off before zapping all of your TV power. The Engel model claims to have a different technology that is more bullet proof.

Most interesting, and I would assume since it is designed for duel voltage the insulation will carry through fall offs. I can't ofer any info, but look forward to hearing others input, and your end results/performance.
ongrats on your purchase. Looking forward to seeing it...and updates on your trip

This is an old thread but one I am considering since the new Dometic cooler/freezer units run off AC and 12v. Has anyone used these units recently? Reviews on Amazon are mostly negative from 2018.

My Landyacht has a washer/dryer unit that never worked well and takes up lots of space. Considering a portable freezer to be placed in that space as it has electric and drain lines in place already. Any feedback would be appreciated.
