Penguin Refrigeration VW T5 gets the Celtic Motorhomes Make Over

After three years of faithful service it was time to upgrade the Penguin Fridge Transporter. So with a new Mercedes Vito ordered, our existing VW T5 Fridge Transporter went for the full conversion make over at Celtic Motorhomes including a new Vitrifrigo C39i 12 Volt fridge.
A long standing customer of Penguin Refrigeration, Celtic Motorhomes have been fitting Vitrifrigo C39i, 12 Volt fridges, to their Mazda Bongo conversions for many years. The Penguin VW T5 Transporter was Celtic’s first full VW T5 conversion and has been so well received that it is proving to be Celtic’s launch into the VW T5 conversion market. Like many VW T5 Conversions the kitchen work surface with sink and hob is fitted opposite the sliding door with the Vitrifrigo C39i, 12 volt fridge, fitted neatly just behind the driver’s seat. Celtic opted for the Vitrifrigo C39i because of its compact dimensions, particularly the shallow depth, allowing them to fit a larger bed and have more room in the living space of the conversion. This type of campervan conversion is particularly suited to people who use their campervan for sporting activities like surfing or mountain biking. A reliable and efficient 12 volt fridge is a vital part of the interior but it cannot compromise the living space. The Vitrifrigo C39i fits the need perfectly as the shallow depth and integral compressor allow it to slot neatly into the slim line work top. The addition of Celtic’s trademark curved Tambour doors not only improve the aesthetic quality of the conversion, but also allow the drivers seat to neatly swivel past the fridge.
“We have fitted the Vitrifrigo C39i fridge to our conversions for several years and always found it to be a very reliable fridge, extremely economical on power consumption. Our customers find they can run their Vitrifrigo C39i for at least 3 days from the 90 Amp hour service battery we fit as standard” commented Ed Jukes, Managing Director of Celtic Motorhomes.

Jerba Campervans Go Gas Free with Vitrifrigo 12 Volt Fridges

Jerba Campervans, manufacturers of high quality campervan conversions in Edinburgh, have developed their 2011 range of VW and Mercedes Vito campervan conversions to run gas free using Vitrifrigo 12 volt fridges and diesel hobs and heating systems.

Combining a Vitrifrigo 12 volt dc fridge with diesel hob and heating allows Jerba Campervans to remove the requirement for gas completely from their conversions freeing up additional space for storage and avoiding the frustration of running out of gas when camping in the wilds. To run gas free Jerba Campervans needed to make their 12 volt electrical systems as efficient as possible.  In their experience the Vitrifrigo 12 volt fridges have proven to be very economical on power, using a 90 amp hour Varta leisure battery, the Vitrifrigo fridge will maintain a constant temperature (3°C in 25°C ambient), for up to three days without needing to recharge the battery.   For those wanting to be truly self sufficient Jerba Campervans offer the option of a 68 Watt solar panel providing enough charge to run the fridge indefinitely with no other source of power required.

“Jerba Campervans are clearly demonstrating how an efficient 12 volt fridge combined with good power management and charging systems will provide an ideal solution for continuous refrigeration when camping” Zeb Elliott, Commercial Director Penguin Refrigeration.

Vitrifrigo 12 volt fridges and freezers are manufactured exclusively by Vitrifrigo in Italy and distributed in the UK by Penguin Refrigeration Ltd.
