No, i did not get the 12 volt refrigerator. I've had such good service from my norcold propane/110 in my Snowriver that I went with the same in the cascade. I had a domestic 3 way in my pop up camper that was never very good on 12 volt. 12 volt didn't cool well and it ate battery juice to quickly. Hoping I get close to the service I've had from norcold.

I need to update my signature but we have a 2021 Mammoth (7 month build and 1 delay due to awning issues) with the 12v fridge. So far its been great. My previous Mammoth 2-way fridge performed better with 2 additional fans to push air out the upper vent.
The 12v is a slightly bigger unit I believe and there is no need for the vents. We also have the mid-range lithium package but with the 120 AH batteries. I actually saw the 360 AH cube battery in Randall's office as a demo and they were in the midst of re-engineering their 3 packages. You should have plenty of juice to keep the fridge going a long time!
Good luck to you-

We ordered our HOST Mammoth in July. Maybe by April ....??????
The 12volt refer is suppose to be a good unit based on conversations with three of our friends. They have had their 12volt unit for over three years. We got the off-grid package also with four solar panels. We might add a second Expion Cube 360ah battery at a later date. They are $3,800 retail. Built just down the street from HOST in Redmond, OR.
It's only money. Spend it before the government takes it away from you.

Hope I don't regret not getting the three way refrigerator. Hate to think I will have to modify my refrigerator right off the production line. I must have been lucky or norcold changed their two way. Too late now, should have had this conversation sooner. Thanks for the responses. Barry

I ordered my Everest in early August with an estimated delivery in early June. I talked to Randall in late October to see if they had updated their schedule/moved the date out. He said that mine was still scheduled for completion in late May with delivery to the dealer in June.

At the same time, I ordered an F450 with an ETA of 20-30 weeks which puts me into March for delivery. As long as I get the truck first I'll be OK.

In the meantime, I've been building a hard sided, popup camper to get me through until I get the new one. It looks like an industrial cargo shell and I have room inside for a cot, porta potti, and shower. All that's left to do is the pop top and the shower. I'm hoping to finish that by the end of the year.

I'll be camping in it this weekend at Joshua Tree so I'll see how well it does in the cold.

Hopefully the supply chain will continue to improve and emploees will go back to work. You will look at every host tc video you can find. Ive run out of new material to watch. You will surly be set up nicely when you get your truck and camper mounted. I'm hoping I soon get a call from Arizona that mine is on the way. Barry

What all you have to put down on a camper or truck that you won’t see for almost a year?
It would be a cold day in _____ before I’d wait that long. I don’t trust a camper mfg to send me the right parts much less an IOU for a $50k or more camper!

2000.00 was what Toms camper land in Arizona required for a deposit. Waiting is what I had to do to get the camper I wanted. There are lots of products that you have to wait for. Supply seems to be getting better. I think labor is really hard to deal with. One worker has COVID and then your employees have to quarantine. Just really hard to predict a product completion with so many hoops to jump thru.
I decided to wait instead of settling. Barry

I believe I ordered in Feb of this year and it came in may. Same for my truck. Hopefully yours will show up soon. Waiting is never easy, just stay busy. Good luck and keep us updated. I did buy a AI power 2500 watt genset for mine from sams the other day. $399 I think. It runs the AC so I'm happy.

Like Barry W, I put down $2000. They said if I cancel and they sold the unit quickly, I would get my money back.

My real concern is that the camper comes in and I don't yet have the new truck to put it on.
