View Full Version : Under seat cooler group buy?

Any interest in a group buy for a softsided cooler that is designed to fit under the seats?

http://www.aocoolers.com/index.cfm?category=15
This cooler will hold 38 cans and 14lbs of ice all day long. The shorter heighth allows it to fit in ski lockers or under seats, or any other places our other coolers can't. The Stow-n-Go has the same guarantee to never leak or sweat.

We are looking at a 15% discount, making the cost $59.50. Option to embroider in various colors at an additional cost.

tempted since we throw a big plastic cooler that sits next to the dog house and takes up half the drivers side

Put me down for one with Moomba logo.

I was actually ordering one this evening but will wait to see if we can get a group buy.

Thanks,

I can understand that. Just making sure he know he might have one with the new one LOL.

I am on the fence, i wouldn't mind having another but I'm not sure i want to pay 60 bucks.

I made two under seat coolers when I got the LSV. I bought shorty coolers from Wally's and took the plastic tubs out of them and cut them down 1 1/4" all the way around. Worked great. Except every couple minutes whoever was sitting there had to get up to let others into the coolers. And, you were always looking in the wrong cooler so the person next to them would have to get up too. Scrapped the whole idea and went back to the big "ice cube" cooler. Ice lasts all day again too.

BTW, for those of you with the doghouse, get an ice cube cooler and use it for an extra seat behind the driver in the bimini shade. Works great.

The cooler is an optional piece of equipment for each boat model in 2013.

Is this the optional cooler?

And the group buy cooler.

Yes i understand that but like i said he needs to check with his dealer just in case.

Mine came with it, but it didn't come with the boat. I had to request it to be shipped to me because it was being held ransom in Cali.

05-30-2013, 08:58 AM
You got it right, skippydo. I updated the first post to include the pic. We've got 6 or so interested so I'll start working through details with the vendor.

05-30-2013, 09:04 AM
Brian thanks for heading group buy up. I was getting the moomba cooler though my dealer then a nice gentleman pointed me at the under seat cooler and that was the one I was ordering....till I saw your post. I did measure under my seats and it will fit perfectly.

Just keep us posted and if you need any help let me know.

Coleman makes a party stacker cooler that will hold a case of cans and on my 04 XLV it fits right under the opening under bench seat opposite drivers seat they will also fit under the other bench seats spaces as well.

I performed a coolerectomy today on the LSV when I got home from the lake. Was tired of an entire 16lb bag of ice melting in less than 2 hours.

The cooler itself was only held in place by 4 screws. I removed those, the 6 screws holding the vertical support in place, and disconnected the drain hose. I then pulled the vertical support out. Once that was out, the cooler slid right out into the vault. I put the support back, and now I have a spot for this soft sided cooler. Whole thing only took 15 minutes. Screwdriver was all that was needed.

Now my question is, is this group by still active? It looks like the code is now invalid.

07-22-2013, 02:46 PM
AO was able to give me another code, although not for the same discount. At least it takes care of most of the shipping. I can't wait to have a cooler that works.

What's the feedback from the guys that bought them. I like the idea but don't need an other soft sided cooler that just holds water after all the ice melts in a few hours. Not above paying more for a GOOD cooler. My hard sided which is not ideal for the boat but keeps ice all day. Hoping to do more riding (surfing and wakebording with this baby) but don't want a cooler full of water when I go for a cold beer. If everyone that has one likes it I'm in on getting one. Maybe start a new group buy. If not I'm willing to pay full for a GOOD cooler so your guys feedback on it would be great. Thanks!!

On day 2 of use. The cooler fits perfectly where the old one was. It isn't quite as wide, but we can get all of our stuff in easy enough. Instead of going through 32lbs of ice a day, I'm now at 10lbs and have ice at the end of the day

Thread revival............Saw this thread referenced on another and didn't know if there was any interest in getting another group buy for this?

Those with the cooler - still happy with it after a couple seasons of use?

Who was the vendor of these puppies as if there is enough interest I'd like to get a group buy going or at least buy one.
