Wow ! and I thought I was a compulsive! Sounds like it will do the job! But
don't set you refrigerator temp too low. The condensate in the coiled hose
might freeze and blow the hose up in your refrigerator and break a few
beers.   0;-)

     As a matter of interest -I was thinking of running the line through
     a small refrigerator and then trough the trap....

First, make sure the trap has a chance - plumb it in after 30 feet or so of
line, or an air cooler, or both. The moisture has to condense before
the trap can remove it. An easy way to do it is to buy a 50 foot
hose and coil it up in a bucket of water, plumbed between the
outlet of the compressor tank and the rest of your line.

Then you probably just need a bigger trap.
