The Cruzin Cooler
The Cat's Pajamas
When I saw Nascar driver Carl Edwards drive his souped up model on the Ellen Show I thought of my three daughters who enjoy fishing, bluegrass festivals and camping. I said to myself, “Wouldn’t this be the cat’s pajamas for hauling ice, cold drinks, and gear not only hands free – but feet free out onto the fishing pier, campsite ro concert lawn seats at a bluegrass festival?” What am I talking about? I’m talking about the Cruzin Cooler!
Patent Still Pending
It is brand new, the patent #D516,869 is still pending. The website warns consumers to watch out for knockoffs because there is only one Cruzin Cooler! According to the sales pitch on their website, “Cruzin Coolercombines two basic necessities of life, the ability to have cold food or a beverage handy along with the means to get somewhere, without walking.”
Just think about it - while golf carts are really nice, they are to big for the fishing pier, and they require a trailer to haul them on trips. The Cruzin Cooler is lightweight and can fit already packed into the trunk of most cars or the back of the pickup.
The Cruzin Cooler will go places the golf cart cannot, although one will have to check regulations about motorized vehicles. I can also see these as handy to have at the horse show. After you’ve walked from the stalls or your horse trailer to ringside about fifty times you are ready to take a load off your feet. With the Cruzin Cooler you can have cold drinks and grooming supplies handy, too. Mark Lowry, sales manager of Cruzin Cooler states, "The Cruzin Cooler was designed for level surfaces but we have many people that use them in camp grounds."
After their premier at the tradeshows the Cruzin Cooler will be available in Bass Pro Shops and Cabelas. You can order one now from their website. The company is still looking for dealers to come on board. The Cruzin Cooler comes in either gas or electric models, will hold 24 cans and eight pounds of ice. It has up to a 10-mile range on electric models and 30 miles on the gas models with a 13 mph top speed. They come in black, blue, red, yellow and white, and decals are available for a customized look. While the Cruzin Cooler has been load tested to 620 lbs the recommended maximum load is 200 lbs plus cargo for the 300-watt model.
Add on the Cruzin Cooler Wagon
Add on the Cruzin Cooler Wagon , or add on a whole train of them! The wagon features four pneumatic tires, steel inter-frame, tie rod steering and readily hooks up directly to any Cruzin Cooler. The Cruzin Cooler with wagon I saw on the Ellen show was customized with about $5000 worth of extras including a rear seat on the wagon. Her wagon was fitted with a seat making the outfit able to carry two people as she and Edwards demonstrated.
The electric models start at $399, with the 1000-watt model selling for $799. The gas models start at $599. The Coolagon Wagons sell for around $149 (seat not included.) Accessories can be purchased separately with seats going for $149 and battery charger $49.95.
Cruzin Cooler will make a great Father’s Day gift for the dad who fishes, camps, or tailgates. And what better way to get the youngsters to do your “go-foring” at family gatherings? And for those who for physical reasons have a hard time getting around this will make a day at the park easier for getting picnic fixings from the car to grill side.
