    Bit of a different one this but we have a corporate customer releasing a new yoghurt product, wanting to use a Bay as a promotional sampling vehicle.
    They want a refrigerated section in the bus and 99.99% of companies who do refrigerated vans don't want to touch it.
    Keen to hear of any experience anyone might have had installing such a unit in a Kombi.
    Cheers

    Could you do a dedicated fridge / freezer (Chest Style) that runs of a extra one or two deep cycle batteries?
    If you can get a front opening one it could sit on the rear engine shelf.

    I haven't any experience but I would suggest that you would need separate petrol or diesel powered compressor to run a large refrigeration cabinet in a bus like that. Some thing like the mr whippy type vans have. You cant load a kombi engine with the extra load of a large compressor or a set of very large batteries.
