User Tips:
  • This fridge is designed to run from a 12V DC power source such as your Caravan/Camping battery bank. Running the fridge from a 12V power source will help with the longevity and performance of this fridge. Bushman recommends that when 240V power is available, use a smart battery charger to charge your battery bank and keep your fridge running direct from the batteries. You can see a suitable range of AC to DC smart battery chargers HERE if needed.
  • A small number of customers may want to use this fridge in an 'offgrid living' setup and run the fridge from 240V AC power all of the time - in which case you will need a Power Adaptor to convert AC Power to DC in order to run the fridge. You can see this optional Bushman Adaptor HERE.

Q & A


  • Can this replace my CRX unit?

    Yes this can replace a CRX80 unit.

  • What do I need to think about in regards of the ventilation with my Bushman compressor fridge?

    As any compressor fridge, it is important to ensure that you have enough ventilation when you install your Bushman fridge.

    Any of the Bushman Compressor fridges requires two vents at the rear of the fridge cavity to the outside, or to the general area where the fridge is located. It is important to place the vents at the bottom and top of the fridge cavity and ensure there is a free cross section. This cross section requires a minimum cm2 which differs depending on the size of the fridge - to ensure the correct required centimeters for your fridge models, please see the Installation Manual under the Description tab.

    The cross section ensure that the fridges get enough ventilation of natural thermal air. Bushman recommends having a bigger cross section as that is required, the more ventilation the better!

  • Is a 240v adaptor necessary with this fridge?

    This fridge is designed to run from a 12V DC power source such as your Caravan/Camping battery bank. Running the fridge from a 12V power source will help with the longevity and performance of this fridge.

    Bushman recommends that when 240V power is available, use a smart battery charger to charge your battery bank and keep your fridge running direct from the batteries. You can see a suitable range of AC to DC smart battery chargers HERE if needed.

    A small number of customers may want to use this fridge in an 'off grid living' setup and run the fridge from 240V AC power all the time - in which case you will need a Power Adaptor to convert AC Power to DC in order to run the fridge. You can see this optional Bushman Adaptor HERE.

  • What do I need to know about installing my 12v compressor fridge in my van?

    Installation instructions will come with your 12V Compressor Fridge. The installation/manual document will also cover:

    • Recommended ventilation
    • Side and rear gap sizes for installing in your RV cavity
    • Mounting
    • Wiring

    Depending on the model, there will also be information regarding; maintenance, cleaning, defrosting, energy saving tips, reversible doors, inserting new door panels and troubleshooting.

  • Does the fridge auto select between 12v/24v?

    Hi - Yes it does!

  • How deep is the internal shelf on the DC85X fridge?

    The internal shelf depth of the DC85X is 320 mm

  • Are these manufactured in Australia?

    No, Bushman is an Australian company, however their products are not manufactured here.

85 L upright fridge /freezer

Great to work with and fitted what I needed.

Bushman's upright fridge

Fantastic product. Fits in easily. Easy to use. Quality product

Great canopy fridge

4 December 2022

We purchased the Bushman's 85l upright fridge and have had it in our Canopy for about a month now and so far we're loving it! We were running a chest style fridge freezer and drop slide but in an effort to reduce some weight and make some more space in the canopy we decided to switch to an upright. We have been really happy with the ease of use and it barely draws any power off our 12v system (1.7 AH average) compared to the chest fridge. We miss the amount of freezer space in the chest but so far it hasn't been a huge issue. As I think most of these fridges are going into Canopies we'd love to see a mounting option that doesn't require a full cage and think it would make more sense to have the default door set up opening the other way but that is just nitpicking for our particular set up. Overall The Bushman's 85 is a great size and we've had no dramas running it 24/7 in the canopy since we got it. If you're looking for a fridge for your canopy this is the one!
