I can only chime in on the same observations with our CXF-28. Its big enough for is four in the family. We have also used ours to freeze meet when we get larger deliverys.
When summer camping it is located on its slide out in the back. In winter camping i have it strapped down behind drivers seat ( left side).

cheers Borris & Kave, great reply with all the info I was after. Looking at the external sizes there's not much difference between the 35 & 28. Need to do some measuring up when i get home.

Quick release plate for CFX28 fits well on top of the multiflex. .even when "flexed" (folded) ..... allows kids access when on the move!

Just a thought.

Can I ask please what the Quick Release Plate is? Does / can it use the rails or is some degree of user adaptation required ?

Thanks
The plate is screwed to the black piece of wood which is then mounted to the rails, you can see the T bolts (available from VW) going through to the rails.

I'm no handyman so would need to have fabricated and the picture will assist .I assume from what you say that it is pretty straightforward .

I have a strap going all the way around the bottom of the front passenger chair, through both handles of the fridge, then around the fridge. Cheap, easy and also quick release.

It does look quite good but wow you are right on the price. Maybe I will stick with bungees :D If it was £100 I may be tempted, but thats just a little too steep for me.

Then again the cali floor fasteners arent cheap on their own.

Runs off mains too, pretty handy for hookup use at that price.

I might have this set- up for sale shortly. Webasto fridge 12 months old and full sliding rack.
Fridge is excellent.
Only selling because I’m thinking about going down the Ocean route

We have a CFX35. All I use to secure it down is a very inexpensive 5m long x 25mm wide ratchet strap which I think was purchased from Halfords. I pass this strap through the two chrome hold down D eyelets at the front end of the outer floor rails, from O/S to N/S, so that the strap is lying flat on the floor between them. Have the buckle located immediately outside of the D eyelet on the O/S of the vehicle so it is easy to get at for tightning. Make sure it and the strap are the right way up for tightening. Then route the free end of the strap up from the N/S D eyelet over and through the N/S carrying handle and down back through the N/S D eyelet and under the fridge and through the O/S D eyelet then up through and over the handle and down through the rachet mechanism. Then adjust by hand until correctly positioned and hand tight. Then just tighten using the ratchet. Don't over tighten or you might break something.

This system enables you to open the fridge lid without having to undo the strap first. Also, if you pass the strap over the top of the unit and tighten down you can start to distort the unit if it's over tightened. A srap in this position would also get in the way of the LED display.
