As we've gone traveling over the years, we have used several different approaches to keeping cool stuff within easy reach in our truck.  None of them were ever totally satisfactory.
Peltier effect type 12 volt refrigerators never seem to get stuff quite cold enough, and we've never had one last more than about two years. Ice chests sweat on the floorboard and they require regular refills of ice.
Lately, we've been thinking about getting a top-of-the-line ice chest - a Yeti or RTIC - and I decided to splurge yesterday.  
We settled on the RTIC, because it appears to be extremely well made, is said to be able to keep ice for up to 10 days, was half the price of the Yeti and the customer reviews were at least as good.  
I ordered an RTIC 20 direct from their website about noon yesterday.  I then went outside for about 15 minutes.  When I got back in, I had two emails from the manufacturer.  The first confirmed the order, but the second  was the one that has me amazed.  It was a notice that my cooler had shipped, complete with a tracking number for UPS!
