Has anyone hidden an AC unit?

I am reworking a 1964 Safari twin. It did not come from the factory with AC. Really wanted to leave the top clean looking. I would like to conceal an AC unit inside somehow. Has anyone had any experience with a portable unit, or adapted something else for the purpose ?

Talk to Uwe from Area 63 Productions.

He does it on a regular basis with his restorations.

We're installing a ClimateRight unit (designed for a tiny house), in a dummy nightstand. The unit is ducted through the bed bases and accessible through modifying the rear access hatch. The nightstand also houses a Honda EU2000i (for transport) and the top is a pull-out table so the beds form a dinette. There are photos in our rebuild thread in the Argosy motorhome section.

Go to post #6 - easy, and inexpensive - and you can use it in your house or garage when you're not Streaming!

I used Toastie's tutorial on his a/c install as a guide for my a/c install. Mine works great and is VERY quiet. It's a 10,000 BTU for my 17' Bambi II. This is a link to Toastie's work:

Worked for me, sometimes you have to be patient while it makes several jumps. Regardless it's on page 36 starting at page 498

Well, it's from Toasties thread "Slow Floor Replacement" and is page 36

This is a link to the page on my own a/c (hopefully the link works)

The T@B Tada has a combination heat pump and air conditioner that is under a cabinet. The people I talked to said they had been in temperatures in the teens and 90's and it worked great. So why not a A$ ?

I think the T@B and T@DA use the Duo-Term Cool-Cat....we looked at those when choosing the ClimateRight, but we wanted a ducted system. Otherwise the installation is very similar.

I think the problem here is non-standard pagination. The link didn't take me to the right place, but I have set my AIRForums options to show 50 posts per page, and the default is something smaller than that... 10 perhaps? And the "permalink" you get from the post number builds an html page that includes YOUR page number. So the permalink looks different for people with a non-default page size. The post numbers will be the same everywhere, but not the page number so it might take some navigating through that LONG thread to find it.
