The times we were able to get shade or when the humidity wasn't so high we were fine, the compressor would cycle as expected.

We might be the exception to the rule but we do camp all during all 12 months, summer usually consists of trips to the coast and we will take a full sun location if it's the only option...your milage may vary.
An update...we switched to a 34' and added a 2nd AC unit

We would NOT be camping in the heat of summer, down here, without the 2nd AC

I completely agree. Even with two, sometimes we've noticed that it is still a struggle to get the front area of the coach near the sofa as comfortable as we would prefer - and that's also without any skylights. I do not think we would be using ours near as much as we do during the summer without the rear bedroom unit.

This thread is 7 months old - hopefully the original person has ordered and received their trailer by now.

We just have one A/C in our '95 30-foot. I can see where a second one might be necessary in the worst heats, though. Fortunately we don't camp in that often enough to make it an issue for us.
