This would be true in my case. Fridge warms up while traveling, doesn't even have to be hot, but it was worse when it is. On the single door fridge recovery time was very slow, so slow it was still not back down by travel time the next day. By the 3rd day of travel we had to buy a cooler for the perishables.
The 2 door recovery time is satisfactory, at least that's our experience traveling for 3 months with it.
When it's hot we've been using a cooler for drinks, helps enough to make things manageable.
