Penguin Refrigeration VW T5 gets the Celtic Motorhomes Make Over

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

After three years of faithful service it was time to upgrade the Penguin Fridge Transporter. So with a new Mercedes Vito ordered, our existing VW T5 Fridge Transporter went for the full conversion make over at Celtic Motorhomes including a new Vitrifrigo C39i 12 Volt fridge.
A long standing customer of Penguin Refrigeration, Celtic Motorhomes have been fitting Vitrifrigo C39i, 12 Volt fridges, to their Mazda Bongo conversions for many years. The Penguin VW T5 Transporter was Celtic’s first full VW T5 conversion and has been so well received that it is proving to be Celtic’s launch into the VW T5 conversion market. Like many VW T5 Conversions the kitchen work surface with sink and hob is fitted opposite the sliding door with the Vitrifrigo C39i, 12 volt fridge, fitted neatly just behind the driver’s seat. Celtic opted for the Vitrifrigo C39i because of its compact dimensions, particularly the shallow depth, allowing them to fit a larger bed and have more room in the living space of the conversion. This type of campervan conversion is particularly suited to people who use their campervan for sporting activities like surfing or mountain biking. A reliable and efficient 12 volt fridge is a vital part of the interior but it cannot compromise the living space. The Vitrifrigo C39i fits the need perfectly as the shallow depth and integral compressor allow it to slot neatly into the slim line work top. The addition of Celtic’s trademark curved Tambour doors not only improve the aesthetic quality of the conversion, but also allow the drivers seat to neatly swivel past the fridge.
“We have fitted the Vitrifrigo C39i fridge to our conversions for several years and always found it to be a very reliable fridge, extremely economical on power consumption. Our customers find they can run their Vitrifrigo C39i for at least 3 days from the 90 Amp hour service battery we fit as standard” commented Ed Jukes, Managing Director of Celtic Motorhomes.
