ek - Mine fit inside...BARELY. So, I hung it outside for space. I like the space and having the regulator easily accessible. I do not like having it hang off the back when I have to negotiate stairs.

BTW, now that I figured out how to jump between kegs and transfer carbonated beer......the mobile kegerator is a must-have.

Good luck...I love it.

I just bought the 60 qt cooler that looks identical to this only (obviously) a bit smaller...looks like mostly in the lid. I only have one 3 gallon keg at the moment, but does anyone have this 60 qt setup who was able to fit 2 kegs in it?

Thanks

I saw those in the grocery store and thought about getting one for a single (2.5 or 3 gallon) keg model. I still might pick on up and modify it after I've moved.

Ya one keg fits in there quite nicely...however there is a lot of empty space in there if it is not big enough for 2 kegs...I seen this (see below) cooler at the store too but I didn't know at the time if the 3 gal would fit but it looks like someone in here...(on pg 18) made it work. Looks like it might be a better option than having a bigger cooler with alot of dead space...might help keep it cooler as well.

the 60 qt did not fit my 2 2.5 gallon kegs with the rubber tops. It might have fit with the ones metal handles on top but would need some modifications to the kegs. My kegs are brand new and the price difference between the 60 and 70 qt coolers did not justify trimming the kegs

Lowes has the 60 qt on super sale right now... I would have to fit two 3 gallons with metal tops, so I guess that won't work? The 70qts are at least twice the price.

I saw that too. If the bottom cooler dimensions are the same. You can buy the 70qt lid. ah..Get your replacement lid here to fix your cooler as good as new! White, foamed, dome-shaped lid fits Igloo 60-70 Quart Ice Cubeâ„¢ cubed-shaped coolers. Converts a 60 Quart Ice Cube into a 70 Quart Ice Cube.

Looks like if you find the 60 for super cheap, buy the lid for 20 and convert it to a 70qt.

What was the price? I saw that too but forget the price. I'm recalling like 13 bucks or something insane.
