    I need a walk in freezer. My DH is thinking we can take our old camper insulate with 4 inch insulation and use the compressor on my stand up freezer [this is a new compressor for a 3 door commercial freezer] on the camper/freezer. Any body know if this would work? Any website that has plans for doing a freezer like this?

    Thanks

    I would start from new or check the yellow pages for truck body builders to see if they have any used ones. We have then in my area and many people have them in their barns for deer seasonand such.

    I found an article on the 'net, about making a freezer from a fridge. It's not what you were asking but I was hoping it would give you some ideas.
