What is the difference between a refrigerator and an electric cooler?

An electric cooler consumes much more energy than a refrigerator and generally only provide a 20°C difference temperature with the outside.

Thus, it is often necessary to refill them with the ice on summer days. Unlike refrigearators, which allow you to set the exact temperature you want. The cooler works continuously, which quickly depletes the battery. A refrigerator, on the other hand, will run for a few minutes every hour, since it is much better insulated and is equipped with a compressor. If it is programmed at 5°C, it will run only when it notices a temperature variation and will stop as soon as the desired temperature is reached. For example, at an outside temperature of 25°C, the refrigerator will run for as little as 15 minutes per hour, while the cooler will run for the entire hour since it never stops.

For the same auxiliary battery, you will therefore have much more energy autonomy with a refrigerator.

Do I have to pay the full amount when placing my order?

We require a deposit of $975 to guarantee the reservation and to be added to the order book. The balance on your invoice must be paid when your kit is ready, 24 to 48 hours before the date of installation or shipment.

What justifies this price?

The price is greatly justified by the quality of the design and the materials selected. We have designed a kit made to last over time and to withstand the vibrations of the road. We have chosen quality, healthy and ecological materials. In addition to being from sustainable forest management, our wood is of marine quality and used for sailboat furniture due to its resistance to humidity and its strength/flexibility/lightness ratio. It is protected by an ecological varnish without any emanation of volatile organic compound which protects it 100% from humidity. Our kits are made here in Quebec and our finishing requires a lot of work from our team.

Do you offer financing?

We do not offer financing. The full amount must be paid before the day of your delivery/pickup.

What type of payment do you accept?

We accept Interac transfers and Visa and Mastercard credit cards.

When I choose to pick up at your workshop, do you do the installation?

We offer the first installation free and we take care to show you every step, although the installation of the RoadLoft is very simple. You will also receive a user guide upon purchase.
