Default Freezer for fermenting

Been looking in a ton of places to see if anyone knows the smallest freezer I can get to fit 1 fermenter. I'm wanting to brew some lagers, but lack the space. I'd be ok with going to a huge fridge, but space is limited. What's the smallest chest freezer that will fit just 1 fermenting bucket? I brew 5 gallon batches. Everywhere I look, people are suggesting freezers for 2-3 fermenters. I just want 1. Can do an ale at the same time.

The smallest chest freezer I've seen is a 5cf. I have a 7cf and that will fit two 5 gal buckets or carboys side by side with a little more space on the "hump". I don't think you could fit two in a 5cf freezer.
