What users say
We asked some of our customers what they think of us.

    "We are so thankful for our Dometic ice-maker. It is one of the most crucial products we have. Since our food allergy lifestyle requires us to take all our own food everywhere we go, keeping cold food cold until we need it is so vitally important. Thank you for making our mobile life easier!"
  • Sophia Pfisterer

    “Manoeuvring at the campsite, by contrast, was a completely relaxed experience. As soon as reverse gear is engaged, the 360-degree bird-view camera and the video display spring to life – manoeuvring like in a computer game! As easily as Super Mario beats Bowser Junior, I managed to jockey Super Carlos (our motorhome's name) into a tricky parking space without the help of a banksman. My campsite neighbours were amazed at seeing me park the camper with two perfect moves, then get out completely relaxed to admire the 25-centimetre distance from the vehicle rear to the rock wall.” (Read more at promobil.de)

    “I would never do without a rear-view camera on my camper. I love the CAM 35 from Dometic, because the housing is extremely flat and adjusts nicely to the contours of the vehicle rear. At long last a solution that does not spoil the overall appearance!”
  • Tiffany Tresse

    “Everything about Dometic products are better than its competitors. We prefer the Dometic CFX as an on board refrigerator because of the long term ability to maintain temperature for days on end. Dometic cools quicker, has better temperature control, and doesn't take up that much space. It's perfect for the back of a jeep or in a truck! The word is out, we prefer the Dometic CFX over any other brand!”
  • Marc and Julie Bennett

    “As full-time motorhomers who love to dry camp from time to time in scenic and peaceful locations, we love that our Dometic motorhome fridge offers us the flexibility to run on propane as well as electric. By not needing to be plugged into electricity, it really helps increase our mobility and gives us the freedom to camp wherever we choose.”
  • Doug Paton

    “I like Dometic products as they are tailored to fit campervans. They give a sleek professional look to any conversion. They are also lightweight and very good quality. Having had the 9222 fitted to all my vans so far and used it extensively for trips throughout Scotland and further, I can confirm it’s a practical and easy to clean hob/sink combination that is built to last.”
  • Peter Methven

    “Dometic has a very broad portfolio which made it very convenient to be able to talk to one company about all these different products. The Dometic VTD8 unit is ideal as it is very compact. It does not upset the balance of the boat or add much weight, as it is the smallest, lightest set-up we could find.”
  • Amy Woldrich

    “Our new Dometic 310 was one of the best investments we've made so far. Seriously. The porcelain bowl looks and feels so much better, and it flushes clean. The best $130 we've spent so far!”
  • David Jongerden

    “My 1987 VW Westfalia was manufactured with a Dometic propane fridge in it. It's now 2017. 30 years and still running strong!”
  • Kimberly McGrenere

    “We store our Dometic CFX fridge between the seats up front for easy access to food while driving. It also doubles as a table! It's perfect for life on the road.”
  • Yann Masselot

    “The boat air conditioning becomes more important. By choosing Dometic, we know we will have a reliable and efficient system on board. Furthermore, the new Smart Touch display offers a more modern design and is much more user friendly.”

    “Our customer is really pleased with the performance of the Dometic system on board the BHT 150 Hovercraft, Dometic provide us with exceptional technical support on all projects which is why we trust them to supply and customise equipment for our projects.”
  • Captain Casey Hunt

    “Service is impeccable with Dometic. As a captain, there is nothing more important than the service and Dometic’s team is knowledgeable, highly-skilled and attentive to detail. We use Dometic products because of them. They are professional and have such a strong work-ethic.”
  • Alan Goodchild

    “Dometic offers a wide range of HVAC systems so they were immediately able to satisfy our brief. The company also has a hands-on approach to customer support, with a global network to provide service virtually anywhere in the world”

    “I traded in my standard cooler for a Dometic CFX-65 and will never go back! It's super efficient, using very little energy. It's sturdy and fastens nicely, without being overly heavy. The controls are very easy to use and the convenience alone makes this a worthwhile investment!”
  • Ellen Lawrence

    “After 3 days of no power in the cab of an 18-wheeler in sunny El Paso, Texas, my ice cream and prawns stayed frozen thanks to my Dometic CFX-50 Refrigerator/Freezer! I’ve been bragging to my cooking group for years, but this was unbelievably awesome!”
  • Ockert Scholtz

    “Dometic makes the most durable products! After being in a major accident, my 4x4 was completely ruined. What’s amazing is that my CFX-50 came out of the wreck still working! It kept my roof from caving in and when removed from the wreckage, it was still functioning well”
  • Marcel Schelvis

    “The Dometic awnings are much easier to install and use than conventional awning models. The holiday feeling starts from the moment I press the remote control button – no need for arduous set-up and cumbersome securing operations.”

    “I can say for a fact that I am a very satisfied customer. I highly recommend these fridges to everyone, who is in the market for a car/camping fridge.”

    "Whether I’m 4W Driving or fishing, a portable fridge needs to be tough and reliable in the harshest terrains. That’s why I chose Dometic CFX."
  • Captain Rob Moore

    “Dometic’s Spot Zero has made cleaning a 92’ Viking much easier after a long day of fishing. With making the purest water possible, that equals NO SPOTS!!!”
  • Manfred Holtschulte

    “I would buy a Dometic awning for my next motorhome too. Other campers have their hands full tying their awnings down properly. The remote button is truly child’s play to use. What’s more, the awning extends and retracts very quickly.”
  • Rick Huckstepp
    Rick Huckstepp
    “While the wear and tear has taken its toll on trailer wheels, water tanks and the Mitsubishi Pajero, the only thing I have had to replace on the Dometic is a lid latch which got slammed between the lid and bottom of the fridge. Not bad in anyone’s books! “
  • Captain Bob May

    “What made the Dometic Turbo so appealing was that it was smaller than the old unit, yet more efficient. It has a nice, powerful top speed – so it earned that ‘Turbo’ name. It got cold very quickly.”
  • Jason Andrews

    “Tested and proven by me, this fridge is tougher and more reliable than ever! That’s why for portable refrigeration, the only way I go is with Dometic!“
  • Rüdiger Ötken

    “The ingeniously simple Dometic CoolAir installation concept is well thought-out and practical to use.”
  • John Lupomech and Becky Brusen

    “Our motorhome is our getaway from a normal crazy life, and the great outdoors is what makes the getaway so special. Our Dometic WeatherPro awning creates a patio where we're shaded from the sun, protected from the rain and able to enjoy the great outdoors regardless of the weather.”
If it´s in the paper it must be true
Our products are continuously tested and reviewed in the main trade publications. Below is a selection of quotes from various publications.
  • “Over the summer I used Dometic’s popular 50-litre fridge nearly every day while on the road or chilling brews at home. I’m still using it today and I’m quite impressed. It has proven energy efficient, well insulated, and easy to use with a few features not found on other units.”
  • “The Dometic CFX-40 is tough, really tough and can be stood on without a thought. Its swivel handles are designed to make it easy to move fully loaded There is a fixing kit available and due to its robustness, internal light and top loading design, it would be perfectly at home in any trade van. The whole compartment can be used as fridge/freezer, freezer or simply as super-fridge. The speed and depths to which it cools is a modern miracle, it uses very little energy resources – this of course makes it perfect for solar power. If you compare prices with the standard installed compressor fridges on the market the CFX-40 is not expensive and vastly more versatile.”
  • “Attention to detail secures the win for Dometic. There’s easy storage for the mains and 12V power leads, plus adjustable temperature control, including a useful eco setting and heat mode. On maximum cooling, it hit 14 degrees Celsius below the ambient temperature. The design also uses the storage space well, accommodating five two-litre bottles.”
  • “The Dometic CFX-65DZUS is one of the most reliable and efficient fridge freezers on the market today. It’s very energy efficient, it features a generous amount of storage space, it is durable and built to last, and it quickly gets down to the temperatures you set it to reach. Due to its size and functionality, it is perfect for camping trips and motorhome breaks, and the USB charging port is the icing on the cake.”
  • “I was on the Boating Writers International judges panel that awarded Dometic an Innovation award at the 2010 IBEX convention for its Breathe Easy Air Purifier. I was so impressed with the product, I convinced a friend of mine to install one on his boat.”
  • “Dometic’s CFX-50 proved to be a consistent performer throughout all of our testing. As standard, the CFX comes jam-packed with standout features – with everything from a versatile lid design, solid build construction, retractable handles and even little features like USB charging ports – you won’t be left wanting with this one.”
  • “The Dometic Smart Touch Integrated Intelligence Control (STIIC) is a revolutionary and user-friendly software that connects a boat’s Dometic systems – air conditioning, ice makers, refrigeration, ventilation and more to the STIIC network – and interactively communicates with the boat owner.”
  • “A soft drink or a beer may be cold enough when you pull it out of the freezer, but from that moment on, it starts warming up. Now, for the first time in the history of boating, your drink will actually get colder as you drink it. The Dometic Cup Cooler brings a new element of luxury and comfort on board.”
  • “We have used Dometic products for many years on hundreds of boats. The company, service and support are all excellent – during installation, as well as post delivery.” For the rest of us, something we take for granted – clean, safe water – is even more important when out to sea. As missions expand and change for more offshore operators, these firms are beginning to look at enhanced water making capabilities for countless reasons. When they do, they will increasingly look to Dometic.”
  • “A specialist supplier to OEM, refit, repair and aftermarkets, Dometic has a support network across the globe and are offering a global presence in over 100 countries worldwide. In this case, it wasn’t hard to see why Signet chose this solution. Collaboration was the key; Dometic was the solution.”
  • “Dometic has a lot to offer new and returning customers, first and foremost are their premium brand and their quality products. Whatever develops in the next few years, it’s a sure bet that Dometic will continue to produce innovative products.”
  • “The Dometic CFX35 really shines is in its two-zone capability, which provides independent temperatures in two zones, allowing one section to serve as a refrigerator and the other as a freezer. The CFX35 is a perfect accessory for those who shop for a lot of food. If the idea of keeping extra chilled or frozen foods for long periods of time in a portable refrigerator/freezer that runs nearly silently is appealing, the new Dometic unit will fit the bill nicely.”
  • “Fan-Tastic Vents, now owned by Dometic, has a great reputation for customer service. If you have any questions or operational issues during the install, someone in Fan-Tastic Vent’s tech support will be happy to help. We were impressed to learn that all Fan-Tastic Vent parts have a lifetime warranty. Fan-Tastic Vent has you covered in more ways than one.”
  • “In all, the Dometic CFX-65DZ fridge/freezer has impressed me big time. It kept ice cream frozen while keeping vegetables crisp and fresh. While only anecdotal, the fridge seemed to draw less current than our previous fridge, even with the added load associate with the freezer. Even though I believe the fridge’s baskets and wireless display could be improved upon, it has proven to be a rock-solid fridge for our travels.”
