    I have the SD4 very happy with its performance.

    Fuel economy is fantastic. Recent trip to the mountains.5 people in the car and with the boot fully loaded with 90L full esky was getting 8.0L/100Km (35.3 mpg )that included overtaking cars with caravans through mountain highway.
    Didn’t feel wanting for power.

    I don’t tow very much and would typically be < 1500kg if I did.

    Others I’ve read who regularly tow near the full 3500kg have gone the SD6

    Think punctuation would help.

    I think it was supposed to say: 5 people in the car, boot full loaded.

    The boot seems very small on your one at only 90L Laughing

    That would be a 90L Esky. Usually filled with a fair bit of ice (or ice packs) to keep the contents cool.

    Yes 90L of cold storage of ice, enough Beer and wine for 5 days of camping and a small amount of food.

    A few days before camping I grabbed 4 x 1.25L plastic soft drink bottles.
    Filled 90% with water and then froze them.

    Put that in the esky and provides a good amount of solid ice for 4 or 5 days.
    Added bonus is that as it melts it doesn’t add extra water to the ice slurry and also extra bit of drinking water. These solid ice bottles help keep the normal party ice frozen longer.

    cool....alas our Coleman won't do that, tried it in Italy during summer 2019, and a bag of ice lasted 24 hours, a frozen 2 L bottle lasted about the same. Somuch for the claim on the outside that it keeps ice frozen for 5 days lol

    The weather was hot, but not overly hot (about 30-32 degrees C)

    sorry to hijack the original poster question.

    (The SD4 will shift these fully load eskies any day) Laughing

    Mordred, check this link for the UK supplier of my esky (coolbox)

    Go the 85L with the wheels, your back with thank you
