Here is a question that is out of the general flow of this discussion, Has anyone placed an air conditioner somewhere besides the roof. I have been thinking of an air conditioner, but would prefer not to have it on the roof. I know that cold air falls down etc. I just like the original likes of the trailer without the box on top. Once again I'm probably being impractical, But it's what I want. Anyone have any thoughts?

uwe mounted his low and ducted the air inside the cabinets, so as to not mess with the roof like of the trailer. i like that idea a lot, too. i might do it on my 18, if i can find room, in an already cramped layout, that is!

Basement air

Uwe is the man. But he knew what he was doing before he did it. Note that in order to accommodate his heat pump/AC installation, he upgraded (reconfigured) the frame rail, for his holding tanks and the heat pump and added an outrigger to support the additional weight of the unit. I don't believe one can just go and throw a basement unit in without these sort of substanial modifications. Also note that he relocated the HW heater to under the galley counter to free up room for the basement package.

Well Here are my current thoughts on an inside air conditioner. The Bambi is small so doesn't need a large unit. Wall Mart has carried a small unit that sold for around $90. We have one that I had made an our side removable mounting for our 1946 Tear Drop trailer. I believe I can fit the same unit in the front of the Bambi under the front gaucho. I have an extra access door in the outside of my trailer in that are which could service as the hot air exit for the unit. Then the cold air could be piped out though flex pipe to the lower front area of the gaucho. The top of the gaucho is removable so repairs should be fairly easy. Anyone have thoughts?

you might want to stick it near a tall cabinet so you can duct the cool air up to the top of the trailer, otherwise you'll get really noticeable thermal layers, hot ceiling, freezing floor.

just a thought!
