Back to the original thread topic......I was lucky to have a inside office with ply top covered ceiling. (see the picture above) We took the A/C up a ladder to the roof & then carefully set a 15' 4x6 length wise on the trailer, off center across the bows. Then we slid the A/C on its bottom foam packing across a 3/4' ply ramp that was transversing the roof & board on the trailer. Once on the trailer it was easy to manuver the A/C off the foam base & into place.
If I did not have the building available, Zep's solution is what I would have tried.

MR, this trailer is so tall that you have to really get back to get a good pic of the A/C. BUT I still didn't like the look untill I painted the A/C Titanium Silver to make it less of an eyesore.

I have not done this yet, but I will have to down the road. So I have a question. Has anyone tried to make a quad-pad sort of rig, and lift the AC unit via pullies up in the air, tie it off at the AC unit which would be a foot higher then the trailer roof height, then back the trailer under that location, and lower it safely into place? Think of the quad pad as 4 long poles, like 12'-16' long, 2 pairs attatched at the top, and spead at the bottom. Then a pole that spans between the 2 sets wide enough for the trailer to fit under, then some rop attaching the bottoms to each across the span that can be run over, but will hold them in place. Also some "support" at the top joints so it does not rock over and fall. I can not really explain that well whats in my head, but the old BSA lashings come to mind to make it stable. All this is probably more work then a couple of people and a few ladders.. Just random thinking I suppose. I'll probably use real construction scaffolding when I get to mine.

You will spend more time doing the quad-pad than it's worth, IMHO. A/C's aren't really that heavy. The two ladders and a cross-plank is more stable than you think. Two people can easily get an a/c up the ladder and onto the plank. Even one person, if they're a little nutty and ignore risk...

I wouldn't advise the one-person approach, though. Even with a big scaffold, getting the new AC up on top was a MAJOR task.

Duuu.... I never even thought of that. I have a 60' bucket truck... That would be beyond easy to use as a crane to lift it into place. Getting any form of help where I am is impossible. So I think of ways to do most things solo.
