Portable ice makers

OK so this might be a bit of an odd ball question, but do any of you have ice machines and if so size and per day capacity. Currently running in a 312 qbud but besides the reefer we also keep a adult beverage cooler. Buying ice can get pricey, so off the wall though buy the ice maker, attach to water line in outdoor kitchen and ice for coolers. What's everyone's thoughts?

I bought one from CampingWorld. It makes a decent amount of ice and the price is right. I do not connect it to a water line, but the reservoir hold enough water to make a fair amount of ice. Keep in mind if the ice sits unused for a while, it melts and goes back into the reservoir. I usually get my first useable batch of ice in less than a hour.

We have a counter top mode that you just fill up. We'll make a gallon of ice for putting into cups and that lasts us for 2-3 days. About $100 from Walmart or some other such store. They all seem like the same machine with different skin.

If you want anything other than the common one mentioned, you will probably need an undercounter unit for residential use. 800 bucks and up.

We travel a lot and use multiple coolers a day, we bought a counter top version from Kohl's and are very happy with it. We also will put water bottles in the freezer and between the 2 methods we have always had enough ice to get us through, most of the times we through some ice out by the end of our day on Sunday.
