From my test and I did test it you can not buy a better cooler than the Moeller Ice-Station Zero. The 270 is just the right size to fit from side to side and just above the bed of my F-250 sitting just behind the fender wells to the tailgate. Top strong enough for 2 adults to sit on however I do not recommend walking on it you can hear the insulation separating. The Ice hold, WOW.. This is a true 7 to 10 day cooler and maybe even longer in more moderate climates. I'm in FL. I placed 2 cases for water in the cooler and then filled it about 2/3 full of ice. I used the cooler to get water out of every day several times a day as well as storing fish daily. On day 8 the final cubes melted in the night so 8 1/2 real time. Now on to amazon. Free overnight shipping for prime customers is a great service but Amazon needs to ensure better handling from their warehouses and carriers because the cooler showed up in a mess. Of course they offered to return the item and replace it but that's time and as a consumer I really don't have the kind of time it would take to replace the unit and in that case I shouldn't have to. I have ordered a new top from Moeller and they were more than understanding to my plight. So in all Moeller product and service rate out of this world and I would recommend anyone that is looking just to get it and move forward with your plans because this is the one!!!! Now Amazon, I'll let you form your own opinion. Great Deals not such great service. And that's How I See It.
I have purchase Moeller coolers before and never had any problems. This one came with a warped lid - 5/8" gap at either end. Not good for cooling purposes. I ordered a replacement, but the packaging was so bad I refused delivery. Not sure if this is common with such a large cooler, but having an improper seal at either end cannot be good.
Since my initial review I found out that Moeller has re-engineered the lid to take care of this problem. When ordering make sure you get a late model cooler to avoid the warped lid problem.
We ordered this item twice! Twice it came and was the wrong size - smaller than we ordered. The carton was marked the correct size but the item was over twice smaller. We had to go through the whole return rigamarole twice. A real pain. But I will say Amazon quickly let us know by email that the item had been returned and promptly refunded our money. Both times!
