I'd like to serve 4 kegs, what's the smallest 'unit' I need to keep them cold?

Thinking of a kit like this,

how long or well will the 5# CO2 work?

I'm not opposed to a stand up model with the faucets on a tower if it saves room, like this
but I'd like 4 kegs, not 2

Primary - Lumpy Dog Brown, Little Sumpin Sumpin

Secondary 1,2,3 -
Bottle conditioning : Apfelwein, Some Oatmeal type summer stout , 3 floyds alpha king clone

Drinking : Centennial Blonde, AHS Anny Blonde Rye

RIP: AHS 20th Anny IPA, Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout Clone "Black Sunday Stout"

That sanyo only fits 2 + a CO2 tank. I'd look into chest freezers. They sell pretty "small" ones. I saw one at costco yesterday that looked like it could fit at least 3, but maybe 4 kegs. You'd probably need to build a collar for it though. With a collar you can avoid the expensive tower also.

The small chest freezers are just the right size for 4 kegs.

I have a small fridge that might do it, but as I probably will only have 2-3 kegs, I haven't looked to see. Might require removing the door panel and replacing with flat plastic. I'd rather have the shelves to hold more bottles I think.
