    This is my set up, finding it really useful so far. I think my next mod will be to allow one of the seats to sit up if required, that will make it truly versatile. Have found no need to so far to fasted the set up down. Its measured to my exact size so my seat is rite up against the board and locks it in place.

    I am in the strange position of having to buy the fridge/freezer before the Jimmy.
    I am going with the Waeco simply due to the bargains at the moment.
    As far as size goes is there an ideal size for the Jimny?
    Is the 50 too big or is the 40 too small.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    My parents have a 42 weekender and its fine. I have a 80l way to big. If I qas to buy one for the jimny id go for the 40l. The 50l dimentions arent that much different...I think just height.

    Check wat you take with you and see what space is left

    Ja jong! at the moment I cant take my seats out because I have a baby car seat for my daughter and my son also travels with. so I will have to invest in a trailer or a roof box.

    I bought the Indel-B 42L based on the dimensions - it's slightly taller and narrower than some of the others. This gives me more space next to the fridge in Jimny, and fewer things packed on top of it (if at all).

    More than enough capacity for two campers who enjoy cold beer. I'd say the 50L is overkill, depending on your specific requirements of course.
    It's not the size that counts, but how well it performs in the bush.

    towing with the Jimny is not an issue, I have been to Moz and KZN with a trailer without any issues, (Moz the trailer was packed)

    just need to realize that uphills you will need to change down and take it easy.

    I'm busy looking for a reasonably priced, smaller trailer, we have a 6 foot at the moment, and tend to pack too much.

    the plan with the smaller trailer is look at lifting it a bit so it can got a bit off-road.

    I dont like traveling long distances with the roof rack on, it has a big affect on the aerodynamics and if you encounter cross winds can make things scary
    I usually put the roofrack on the trailer when traveling and use it at the destination so I don't have to put wet/dirty things inside.

    I'm a Jimny owner, and I bought the waeco 50l last week. Sure the 40l is fine too (maybe even more ideal)

    Thanks for all the replies and advice. My preference for the Waeco is simply the deals at the moment.

    Do you maybe have a photo of the Waeco 50 in the Jimny, particularly with the space left between the fridge and back seat to pack something in.

    I eventually bit the bullet and removed my seats, have a big camping trip next month and honestly think I have to much space now, really recommend this mod. Also give you a fair amount of space behind the driver and passenger seat away from prying eyes and as you see I converted the spare wheels jack area to accommodate my compressor.

    Nice one Jay4. Did you make it yourself and if so what did you use? What were the dimensions? Tx

    Hi there

    Yes I did it myself, dimensions will be no good because of some of the angles as you get close to the front seats, best way is to use cardboard to do a template then translate that onto wood

    Well I eventually got the Jimny before the fridge.

    Spent a lot of time driving around yesterday looking at fridges.

    My first choice was the Waeco based solely on price.

    However the National Luna looks the standard. But at R3300 more than the Waeco.

    Maybe I will get used to it but the Zuki is small. So common sense tells me to listen to MarkJ and go for the Indel 42.

    I haven't seen any Engel so can't comment on them.

    I guess what I am asking is whether the NL is worth R3300 more than the Waeco which seems to have plenty good comments on the forum and if a more expensive fridge is called for why not the Indel?

    Very happy with my Indel 42 - external size fits the Juimny and internal big enough for two people.

    This is my solution to the packing space shortage of the Jimny. Just nee to fit the indicator and brake lights with a numberplate to get it legal. Planning to use it for our Moz trip in december to carry fuel etc.

    Heaviest load I've carried on it before was 60kg, and it was fine on the highway. A steel bumper will work well for counterweight.

    It doesn't really have a big affect on the departure angle, only in very rough technical sections.

    Hi, I can't see (in your pictures) if your rack can drop / move away so that you can open the rear door?

    Hi, it goes where the towbar normally goes. You just remove the steel pin, and slide it out. Then you can open the rear door. Alternatively you can offload your goods and keep the carrier in place, then the rear door opens over the the carrier.
