The door new seal is installed between the interior skin and the outer skin, and then riveted in place using conventional bucked rivets.

Your painted floor

I've been considering painting my floor to tie together new nyloboard in the back and the rest of the plywood. It looks great! And, looks very encouraging.
Excellent work and thread details.

Thanks IndyAnne, the paint is there for added protection, we are going with wood or a linoleum for the finish.

This is looking great!
with the cold output at the ceiling it will naturally mix with the hot air as it falls. there is not a need for an auxiliary fan.

Thanks very much 1954cruiser. The AC unit is going to sit like the below picture. Going to build duct work for the outside incoming air (the side louvers) and run the ducts through the belly pan to outside and same for the hot air going out. Then build a door for the hot side that tilts away from the incoming cool outside air........like yours.

Changed my AC design today, and today was a good day to work on the AC being that it is 90 deg's. I did a test run with the AC trying it between the beds and I was amazed how cool the inside got in a short time, could feel the cool air all the way to the front, and to the ceiling. Will run the warm air behind the license plate. Will build duct work for the outside incoming air (the side louvers) and run the ducts through the
belly pan to outside fresh air.

Cutting away the louvres on the sides of the case (where outside air is drawn in) will go a long way to reducing the white noise made by the unit when running. The louvres create a lot of turbulence.

Also, coating the inside of the chamber enclosing it with sound absorbing material (like the fiber mats for car hoods, for example) will reduce the noise further.

This will give you a much more comfortable sleeping environment - unless you like white noise when you're sleeping.

Very well thought out installation. I really like how you are hiding the vent behind the license plate, neat. Are you going to mount the unit on rubber washers to help isolate it further or doesn't it seem to telegraph thru the floor?
