4.6 cubic-foot camp trailer refrigerator
These days, we have way too many options. That’s why you feel so good when you find something that works — a favorite toothpaste, a good mechanic, cool-weather cat booties that little Mr. Friskers will actually wear without feeling self-conscious.
For the team at Reparadise, the Isotherm Cruise 130 Elegance (CR130E for cool, industry-types) has become that go-to product because it looks great, hits that sweet spot for storage vs size, fits in many camper applications and achieves this across wide price spectrum — while maintaining performance.
Want a knock-about fridge? go for the basic, yet glossy black unit. Feeling a bit posh or modern? the silver model fits the bill. Looking for that high-end yacht vib? The stainless, Clean Touch finish, looks the part.
Size and Storage:
At 4.6 cubic feet, the CR130E holds plenty of road-treats and after-hours beverages without overwhelming the cabin space. The fridge’s size is perfect for campers that are supporting 2-3 people on a weekend trip and ideal for sub 24ft trailers and Van Builds… which is why we keep this RV fridge in stock. For our larger builds the Cruise 200 often gets honors, and sometimes, we’ll combine multi Isotherm models. There’s many sizes and shaped available from Isotherm, and we can special order any of them.
Other features include a 6-liter freezer compartment, 2 adjustable shelves, a magnetic steel evaporator door, and a vegetable bin covered by a glass shelf.
Isotherm states the Cruise 130 Elegance chews up 418 watts in 24hrs. This is based on ISO standards ( ISO 15502:2005 and EN 153:2006):
Operation on 12 V with +5°C in the refrigeration space, ambient temperature +25°C
In van builder/dyi camper-guy speak, that works out to 1.45Ah. Here’s our math:
418watt / 24h = 17.4Wh
17.4Wh / 12V = 1.45Ah
This is of course, based on the above listed operating conditions, which is sterile-lab based — not what you’ll find in the real world. According to our butt dyno, we typically, see the Isotherm 130 Cruise running around 3Ah in real world use. Logically, we see more power consumption during the summer heat.
If ultra-efficiency is your jam, Isotherm provides a Smart Energy Control that’ll cut this fridges consumption a claimed 50%… perfect for situations where solar or battery space is limited.

The Cruise 130 Elegance comes with the Proud Mount Flange. It can be installed with or without the flange depending on your aplication. We we’re able to slide this 12v RV Fridge into the stock space of an Alaskan Camper vintage and new.
This fridge fits openings 29.75×20.5×21.5in, HxWxD measured in the shop. The flashing adds about 3/4in to overall size. Isotherms official specs can be found here.
Ventilation is important for proper fridge operation. The condenser needs to exchange heat. Isotherm recommends a 9cm diameter or equivalent vent located low on the fridge and one higher to allow passive air flow.
