I am leaning towards buying a $350 refrigerator and spending an extra $1000 on solar gear & inverter to support it.
I'm doing the same thing. I'm eyeing a 4.5cuft 110v that daily uses about 900w/90a (inverted and adjusted up 20% for inversion loss). But, it's only $220. That leaves a lot to put towards my inverter/charger, solar gear and batteries.
I also looked at the 12v chest dual zone refrigerator/freezer. Yet, the cost for a decent size, about 3cuft, seemed really high. Especially for the inconvenience of having to pack food on top of food and to dig through stuff to find stuff.
Seems to me, while the cold air stays in the chest unit, the extra time the lid is open to collect or put back your food might offset any savings.
They also take up more horizontal space, and if you store them in a cabinet, you have to slide them out to open them.
Best of luck!
