New 20 litre and 30 litre compact 12 volt drawer fridges from Vitrifrigo

All new compact 12 volt drawer fridges from Vitrifrigo are available in two sizes 20 litre and 30 litres.

Vitrifrigo 12 volt drawer fridge or freezer

Versatile use with Compact Dimensions

With dimensions of just 250mm high by 440mm wide and 445mm deep (20 litre drawer excluding the de-mountable compressor – see table below) you can fit a 12 volt compact drawer fridge in the smallest tightest of loactions.  For greater versatility or to optimise your installation the compressor and cooling unit can be removed from the back of the drawer and mounted remotely up to 1.5m from the drawer.  This gives greater flexibility allowing you to locate the drawer where you want it and the compressor in area where there is better ventilation or more sound proofing.

Vitrifrigo 12 volt drawer fridge dimensions

Elegantly styled they are available in either black or white to match your interior styling with a central chrome handle.  They can run as either fridge or freezer with a fridge temperature range of between 8° to 0°C or as a freezer down to -10°C.

The drawer is latched closed using two side catches for greater security, opened using the central chrome handle.  The positive side latches ensure the drawer cannot open even in rough seas or when driving over rough terrain or cornering in a vehicle or motorhome.

Accurate temperature control and super power efficient

Accurate temperature control is via Vitrifrigo’s own electronic thermostat. The thermostat has also has 4 setting for fridge and freezer and a special Night Mode allowing the drawer to run quieter and more economically.

Both the 20 and 30 litre 12 volt fridge drawers use the latest BD35 compressor designed to run on environmentally friendly R600 refrigerant, which is good for both power consumption and the environment.  The cooling unit is an aluminium finned condenser giving the best performance even in high ambient conditions of up to 40°C – typically running as fridge for more than three days on a 100A/h leisure battery in UK summertime.

Flostream Micro fresh water filters now standard on RP Motorhomes new off-grid Rebellion

RP Motorhome’s new Rebellion is the ultimate overland, all terrain, off grid vehicle. The 7.0m Mercedes Benz V6 4×4 panel van conversion is designed to operate in the harshest of environments, with every fitting and feature chosen for longevity and reliability.


“The Rebellion is the ultimate off-grid motorhome,” says Steve Young of RP Motorhomes. “Its users need to be totally self-sufficient, so we’ve done a lot of research to ensure that every component will withstand the toughest environment.”
Working closely with Wave International’s UK supplier Penguin, RP Motorhomes selected the Flostream Micro HIFLO 10 water filter to provide clean, safe and fresh tasting drinking water in the Rebellion. Fitted between the vehicle’s two 100 litre onboard water tanks and the galley taps, the Flostream Micro HIFLO 10 provides a mighty 10 litres per minute flow rate of fresh and clean filtered water.
“We did thorough research on the range of water filters available, and the Flostream Micro came out best in terms of its fast flow rate, compact size, strength and durability, and the easy-to-replace sophisticated cartridge filters,” says Steve.
The Flostream Micro HIFLO 10 multi-media cartridge filters remove all impurities down to 10 microns. For comparison, a human hair is 50 microns in diameter, and anything below 40 microns is invisible to the human eye.

The combination of filters within the Flostream ensure that all chlorine taste and bad odour is removed, as well as heavy metals and other impurities. In addition, with its built-in bacteriostatic control, the Flostream removes cyst and harmful bacteria, and prevents any risk of micro-bacterial growth when the water filter is not in use.
“For a vehicle which may be spending many months off grid, the Flostream will significantly improve the taste and quality of water coming from the tank, no matter how long the water has been stored there or how poor the original source. We will recommend that users carry replacement filters with them, and we will also replace filters during the annual habitation check service that we carry out,” says Steve.


A key feature in the selection of the Flostream Micro HiFLO10 was its compact size. Measuring just 169mm by 133mm, RP Motorhomes says another key advantage was the easy installation into a compact space, using the integral housing bracket and 0.75 inch British Standard Pipe thread or 15mm push fit piping connector.
Zeb Elliott of Penguin Refrigeration, the UK distributor for Wave’s RV and caravan products, is delighted that the Micro HIFLO10 passed RP Motorhomes “tough test” criteria. He says, “In the Rebellion, people will go to remote places, and will want to look after the environment and their health by avoiding single use plastics and be confident of the quality of the water they are drinking. Flostream’s Micro HIFLO10 filters out all the bad stuff and delivers great tasting clean drinking water at an impressive 10 litres per minute.”

Introducing the all new Flostream Micro HIFLO10 water filter

The Flostream Micro HIFLO10 water filter has been specifically designed to suit the needs of caravans, motorhomes and service vehicles. Designed to be as compact as possible, the Flostream Micro HIFLO 10 provides a mighty 10 litres per minute flow rate of fresh and clean filtered water.

Using a water filter in caravans, motorhomes, and other service vehicles such as horseboxes and welfare vehicles avoids the need to carry single use plastic water bottles to ensure clean and fresh water.  Until now, many water filters, have simply been too large to fit into the small spaces available in touring vehicles.

Flostream micro drinking water filter

The Flostream Micro HIFLO 10 uses three stage multi-media filters which removes all impurities down to 10 microns.  For comparison, a human hair is 50 microns in diameter, and anything below 40 microns is invisible to the human eye.

The sophisticated Flostream filters ensure that all chlorine taste and bad odour is removed, as well as heavy metals and other impurities.  In addition, with its built-in bacteriostatic control, the Flostream removes cyst and harmful bacteria, and prevents any risk of micro-bacterial growth when the water filter is not in use.

The Flostream will significantly improve the taste and quality of water coming from a vehicle’s water tank, no matter how long the water has been stored there or how poor the original source of the water.  Using a Flostream also removes limescale, helping keep taps and sinks clean.

The Flostream Micro HiFLO10 measures just 169mm by 133mm which means it is easy to fit into any compact space in a cupboard or under a sink.  The replaceable filter is easy to change, simply by unscrewing the filter from the Flostream body.  Each unit is supplied with a housing bracket, and 0.75 inch British Standard Pipe thread or 15mm push fit piping connector.

Zeb Elliott of Penguin Refrigeration, the UK distributor for Wave’s RV and caravan products, says the new compact Micro HIFLO10 has been developed as a result of customer feedback.  “We are increasingly seeing people wanting to tour further and to more remote spots; and more people wanting to look after the environment and their health by avoiding single use plastics whilst at the same time, being aware of the quality of the water they are drinking.  Flostream filters have been proven to provide excellent fresh tasting and safe water, but have been difficult to fit onboard the smaller camper vans and mobile homes.  Now this compact Micro HIFLO10 provides the solution our customers have been waiting for.  It will filter out all the bad stuff and deliver great tasting clean drinking water even at flow rates of up to 10 litres per minute.”

Costing from £105 inc VAT, the Flostream Micro HIFLO10 is manufactured from Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) and NSF International (Food, Safety and Quality in the UK) certified components, and can withstand temperature ranges from 4-45 degrees centigrade.  To order go to MICRO Hiflo10 Flostream Water Filter

For replacement cartridges go to Flostream Micro HIFLO10 filters (cost £41.25 inc VAT).
