Though we full time and stay in one spot for three or four months we have a fridge we got at Wally World for about $99 and placed outside under a portable table that is used exclusively for the most important part of a late afternoon...BEER. We put it in the back of the Jeep when we travel to the next spot.

If you buy a small fridge make sure it has a compressor.

Not sure what everyone else finds, but the compartments around the step get very hot while driving. I tried putting a cooler of ice in the one forward of the steps, and I lost a lot of ice before I arrived at the destination.

I like the idea of storing the fridge in the toad and setting it up once you're at the site. I use. I use a portable ice maker that way now.

I use one just behind the door, it a compressor model and it works fine. It can't be very big is the only issue.

Would you know the brand and do you have any ventilation for it

Don't know brand but it came from Walmart and it was not expensive. I put a fan in the bottom opening and I run it when I am stopped for more than a day. When moving I put the cap on to keep dirt out.

Make sure to measure door size, it is close for many fridges.
