Primus Fridges

Primus Fridges

Primus fridges offer an affordable alternative to other leading brands. With thick insulation, and the powerful Polar compressor, these 12v fridges suit the most demanding applications. Primus fridges are available in 4 models from 40L to 80L, with the unique Primus 60L Duo model featuring twin lids to separate the fridge and freezer sections. Primus fridges can run on 12V, 24V or 240V, so you can have cold drinks and food no matter where you are.

Primus have been established in the camping market since 1892 and are known for their reliability and quality products. Did you know that when Roald Amundsen trekked to the South Pole in 1911, and when Sir Edmund Hillary and Norgay Tenzing sumitted Mount Everest in 1952, Primus stoves cooked their food and kept them hydrated by melting snow!

The Primus Series III fridge/freezer continues Primus' exceptional reputation.
