I don't think that anyone can justify paying the price of these new coolers. Even the cheaper ones. UNLESS they are going on trips involving multiple days with no easy access to more ice.


Having said that, my wife surprised me with a Yeti 65 for Christmas. Its ability to keep ice is absolutely amazing. I placed a quartered, freshly killed deer into the cooler, covered it with ice. Three days later, a piece of paper I had placed on top of the ice had yet to become even damp. Virtually no melting occurred. Temperature was in the mid 70's.

I have the RTIC cooler and I see absolutely no difference in it and a Yeti other than price.

OK, so RTIC coolers do exist in the real world!!! That's encouraging to hear. Maybe they will ship mine one of these months......

Yeti

I have a Yeti 105. My friends call it the "body box", lol. It is positively a two man carry when loaded. I use it while camping and tailgating. It is great here in SC during the summer and allows me to have more room in the rig's refrigerator.
I ratchet strap it down to the bike rack on the back of the Sabre. It will hold two cases of my favorite beverages, a couple port butts or racks of ribs for smoking at the tailgate, lots of bottled waters and I usually fill it, ice it down on Thursday afternoon and dump whatever ice is left on Sunday. It works great. Since it rides on the bike rack, I had a company put my military ribbons and shooting badges on a sticker that I placed in the center of the Yeti.

Now the real story.....a friend of mine called me one day and said "Hey, I'm at an estate sale and they are selling a Yeti 105 for $200" I said, "what is wrong with it?" He said "nothing, they just don't realize what its worth". He then went on to tell me he wanted it for his boat but was concerned it wouldn't fit where he normally keeps his cooler. He ask, "If it doesn't fit will you buy it for $200?" I said yes. That night he called me and said "I'm bringing it to work tomorrow, it won't fit". I got one hell of a deal

Did you pull the pin out of the doll after you took ownership?

No, lol, but I guarded it for awhile thinking he might want it back.

I like my (What I thought was expensive) Coleman xtreme cooler. I can see why they would be popular with fisherman and hunters due to the construction but I dont see any reason it would be a must have for a RVer. Any comments?

BTW Yeti 65Qt is roughly 400.00 and the Rtic is 199. My Coleman was I think 50 bucks...and i have two of them
All you have to do is come up here in the mountains to camp. Your beer will be ice cold for free in a mesh bag in the stream. And from the looks of things on ESPN, you will have plenty of camping time on Sundays with nothing to do but camp next year. . .

I love really hot coffee and I mean boiling. I plan to get the 20oz soon. I have a coffee percolator that I put on the stove and it boils, perks the coffee. It is so hot DW has to put a ice cube in hers just to drink it, that's the way I like coffee hot and black. Now I can get a mug that will keep the coffee hot for a long time.
