Default Frigidaire 7.2 cu ft Keezer?

Has anyone had experience or heard of someone using a Frigidaire 7.2 cu ft chest freezer as a kegerator? I'm assuming I'll have to build a collar, but was wondering how many kegs I could fit. (Found one on craigslist but it's more than an hour and a half from here, so I'd like to know how many I can fit before making the drive.) Thanks.

Look at the sticky "Sizing your Chest Freezer for Corny Kegs", it is on the first page of this Bottling thread.

I have a black 7.2 and it holds 3 cornys without a collar, which is the way I have it.

depends on the compressor hump. if its only in the back corner, prolly 3 kegs like samc's setup.

if its a full hump from back to front, you'll fit 2 kegs max, unless you have a very tall collar that lets you put a 3rd keg on the hump.
