Overland Legends: National Luna

Overland Legends: National Luna

by Stephan Edwards

You could argue that South Africa is the spiritual home of overlanding as we know it today. For many adventurers in that part of the world overlanding isn’t a lifestyle or an Instagram fad, it’s simply life, and it has been for decades. It’s no surprise that some of the most legendary overland gear comes from that sun-baked country.

National Luna is certainly among those leading South African manufacturers. They’ve been making some of the very best overland refrigeration, lighting, and battery management products for over 30 years. Their 12 volt portable refrigerators, in particular, have earned a solid reputation for reliability, convenience, and ruggedness. Their new Legacy range of fridges carries on that tradition.

Why National Luna?

My feelings on the benefits of the 12 volt mobile refrigerator are well known. But you don't have to take my word for it. Expedition Overland has been installing National Luna fridges in their long- and short-term expedition rigs for many years now. National Luna’s wide range of specialist 12-volt products are aimed specifically at the 4×4 and adventure travel world. So their fridges are developed and manufactured in South Africa with strict quality and performance requirements, ensuring that customers have peace of mind when traveling to remote environments.

With their proprietary and super-efficient "Off-Road" compressor that comes with an industry-leading eight year limited warranty, and stainless steel construction, you know their fridges are built to endure extreme conditions for the long haul. All National Luna fridges feature:

  • High-tech digital temperature controller
  • Thermostat range of 68F to -11F (20C to -24C)
  • High density polyurethane insulation
  • Sophisticated 3-stage battery protection to keep the juice flowing
  • Bright internal LED light
  • Stainless steel latches, with the option to configure the lid opening lengthwise or widthwise, and in either direction
  • Reinforced handles and tie down points for convenience and security
  • Dimpled, brushed-finish casings that shrug off abuse, are easy to clean, and look great with any build

With sizes ranging from a compact 40L to a whopping 125L, you're sure to find an application that'll keep the beverages cool for your crew no matter the size. And, you'll find a fridge that fits your rig. In addition to their range of refrigerators, they offer a wide selection of accessories - like covers, removable hinges, and mounting plates - which are ideal for customizing your installation.
