Portable Ice Machine

Looking at getting one of these for Christmas to use when we are RVing in the summer.. seems we are ALWAYS leaving the campsite for ice... anyway... does anyone use a portable ice machine... do you love it. why did you choose the one you have?

there are so many out there.. but none of them seem to stand out of the crowd!

suggestions are welcome!

We boiught one at Target on sale for $109 and have been very happy with it. We make ice and put it in zip lock bags in the freezer, usually get by with making ice about every other day.

We got one of these last year, and it works as advertised. We never run out of ice. We keep it in one of the cargo bays, plugged in so we don't have to go in and out of the RV when we patio for the afternoon.

We use an Emerson brand from Target.

Usually, we will keep it on a small folding table under the awning, unless it is extremely hot, then it goes into the storage basement to stay out of the sun.

It works well, and we are on the 5th year using it.
