I stopped at my local gas station just in time to see them pitch this. Its one of the display coolers they use for pop and such. it hold two 6.5 carboys, i just hope they hold there temp well. it even has a drain in it, they had gotten some new ones from a vendor and didn't need it any more

Did the kid come with it? Nice! I imagine it would be pretty good as long as it doesn't have and leaks?

That is a solid find! I've been struggling with 10 gallon batches and taking over SWMBO's pantry for a week with a second cooler. I guess I should say she's been struggling but is a good sport about it.
