Best Refridgerator for Trucks Great Gift Idea For Truckers

My husband has been a trucker for over 20 years now. He has driven everywhere in the continental US. Over those years he has used lots of different fridge options for his truck. I think the most popular type of small fridge for truckers is probably this one:

It is inexpensive, plugs directly into a cigarette lighter adapter that most trucks come standard with in a space designed for this type of cooler.

You can either use it standing up or laying down. It works by keeping the stuff you are trying to keep cool about 40 degrees cooler than the ambient temperature.  If you are going to have your truck off for long periods of time, however, you will probably want to make sure that you don't leave food in there as eventually your battery could run down and the stuff will spoil...but then really who drives and doesn't have their truck on pretty much all of the time right?

This is the most popular cooler for truck drivers

It is a wonderful gift idea for truckers on your gift giving list. Or simply a great way for the trucker in your life to be able to keep groceries cold while they are working.

This handy cooler with its 12 volt plug works great for traveling long distance in the car as well. Saves on the need to stop for ice and the mess associated with using ice to keep stuff cold in a car. I can't tell you how many times I've lost food from it getting flooded by the water in the cooler, no matter how careful I am to use baggies for everything.And how careful I am to make sure that those bags are sealed.  Nothing like soggy lunch meat and cheese or those candy bars you have tucked away having their wrappers dissolve. Ick. Since we have been using this Coleman Cooler for our family trips life has been so much easier.
