Default Frigidaire 5.0 cu. ft. chest freezer

Has anyone here used the Frigidaire 5.0 cu. ft. chest freezer for a keezer, or does anyone know what it looks like inside and whether you could put 3 corny's inside plus a CO2 tank?

I looked at one similar to this at sams club. i recommend a 7 cu. ft freezer. thats what i purchased. it can fit 3 pin lock and 10lb co2 tank easily.

I don't mind a tight fit. But I live in a 350 sq ft studio apartment, so I have to use the smallest freezer possible. I'd rather put a collar on than have a relatively wide and bulky freezer. From the specs I have seen, a 5-5.2 cf freezer will be about the max I can use. So I have to find one I can order online, and one that will allow for 3 ball lock corny's and a 5# CO2 tank.
