Default Advise! Which cooler?

So looking for advise from those that know the ins & outs of all the cooler options out there, know you east coaster love yeti & maybe thats the right option...
Here's the deal, my gals mom is retired & is living out of her travel trailer which is on a horse ranch here in San Diego.
She needs a cooler to supliment her fridge in the travel trailer.
What is best brand bang for the buck for a cooler that performance wise does its intended job really well & keeps this cold for an extended period of time. Is they "yeti" really that much better than every other option or are you paying for the name...
Brand, links, any advise would be great!!!
Looking to get her something for x-mas

I own an engel and several yeti coolers. I'm satisfied with both brands. Money being no object, however, I would buy her a frigid rigid.

Pretty much this exactly.

You're paying for the name with yeti but they build a great product.

I would rather have a picture of girl friend

If she has electric power a double cube refrigerator would be easier

This. Look into 12v expedition vehicle refrigerators. She's going to be going through the ice regularly in any cooler if using it long term and there will be the water to mess with as well which will require lifting, draining, etc.

Some of the bigger roto molded coolers can get pretty heavy, will she be moving them? I have South Jetty Coolers and RTIC and they both hold ice just fine.
