Has anyone ever tried usine a portable air conditioner in an Airstream? Such as this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/MAYTAG-9000-BTU-...QQcmdZViewItem
I don't necessarily endorse the particular unit, just using it as an example.
From what I get from the specs, this is a 9000 BTU unit that draws only 800 watts
of electricity meaning it could conceivably be easily run by a Honda 2000 generator.
I have purchased a similar unit, only 12,000 BTU's for my garage and it works fine. It's much quieter than the A/C in the Airstream, condenstation is not a problem because it is used to cool the coils with the exhausted air. Running it is about as noisy as a home refrigerator with a little fan noise added.
Exhaust could be thru a roof vent! The only problem I could see is it has to pull in a lot of air to make up for air exhausted so it is constantly bringing in outside air with it's humidity, etc. It is a very interesting idea.
