Searching for mod: slide-out 7 day cooler

Someone posted this a long time ago and now I can't find it. It was a fridge or icebox replaced with a cooler that could slide out so you could open it from the top. (Search function doesn't work too well when you try to find slide or cooler or fridge!) Hopefully the poster is still here and remembers where it was?

Thanks, but this was different. It was a cooler (the extreme kind, 5 or 7 day) that fit the space but slid out so it could open from the top, and I'd guess it was three years ago or more. (I could probably figure it out if I decide to do it but I wish I could find the thread- is there a way to search requiring ALL words be found?

Try putting quotes around your phrase- not sure if that will work- but something tells me it will.

So on google- type in site:fiberglassrv.com "slide out cooler"

Hope it works for you!

Oh, good idea, I had not thought of searching on google which offers more options.

I NEVER use the search function on this site- or the iPad and iPhone apps. Don't get me wrong this is a wonderful site/forum- but the search function here is rather useless.
I only use Google to search this site- it gives really good results.

The search function on this site now includes the option of searching the site with Google - much better :-))) Its the last box on the drop down when you click on search at the top of this web page.

Bobbie I recall also the modification you are looking for as I also recall it but I couldnt find it either! Hummm.

I still can't find it, even with that. Maybe the OP will come along and enlighten us! I'm not sure what search words- tried cooler and slide, sliding, and shelf, and found Cyndi had removed an icebox and put in a shelf for a cooler, but not the sliding shelf.

This is a thread where the entire cooler was made and the whole thing slides out: My 1991 Scamp renovation

Maybe between the two threads referenced you can create one of your own.

Best of luck!

That one is clever, but inconvenient (might as well have the cooler on the floor.) But the idea is the same, keep it in a slide out-cabinet and use an efficient cooler opened from the top (that's why it has to slide out.) I was also thinking that using a similar technique you could build a better icebox though I don't think I'll go to that extreme. Still wish I could figure out how to find that original thread on search.

FOUND IT!! HERE. Dan Passmore's Winter Mods

Very nice work from Dan Passmore. (It took me awhile as I found in mentioned in his trailer profile but had to track down the post.) This is what I'm thinking of though I think I'll see how the cooler/icebox system works for awhile.
