Most of the 12v coolers that i know of will only maintain a temperature of something like 45 degrees below the air temperature, so on a 100 degree day your ice cream would be a nice 55 degree soup. Unless you get the ARB version that works a little differently I think, but they start at like $900...
I use a marine cooler with the milk jug or block ice method for camping.
