If you only get one AC, everytime your wife gets hot she'll blame you for not listening to her and you'll be back at the dealership to trade in. Save yourself that expense and get two ACs.

We have a 25ft International and one AC, 2 fantastic fans, full awning package. We would not change a thing. We rarely use our AC. Unless you plan to travel to the desert or the south in the summer, stick with the two fans you can use while boondocking.

The delivery of air via the ducted system on a 25’ is poor but can be greatly enhanced by replacing the exit covers as we did. This allows two ceiling vent fans . By all means have awnings.

Think Re-sale

Load any RV purchase with as many gee-gaws as you can afford. You are gonna trade or sell it in a few years anyway and the more shiny things you can advertise the better the selling price. And you’ll get the advantage of using the stuff while you have it. Cool is good. Awnings look cool. That’s the theory AS has when advertising “special edition” models.

We have 2 ac’s on our 26u, and have replaced both units twice! Having a backup unit can mean your trip is not over if one fails.

There are lots of great replies here, but without specific numbers it's hard to say for sure whether you'd be happy with one or two a/c units.

My wife is happy as a clam even with no a/c at all. She grew up in a very hot area and her parents didn't have a/c in their house. As a result, she'd probably tell you that one a/c (or maybe even no a/c) would be just fine. As long as it's below about 85ºF, she's happy and prefers silence rather than a noisy a/c.

I, on the other hand, grew up in the north and if it's more than 75º I feel hot. I'm happiest at 72 or below. If it were me, I'd probably get the 2nd a/c unit on the off chance I visited the southwest in late spring / summer.

Bottom line, one person's "it's fine without a/c" may be somebody else's "it's sweltering hot without a/c!", even though it's the same temperature for both people.

We have a 27ft Flying Cloud with one AC and one awning. We live in Scottsdale, AZ. One AC unit works fine and we have 2 fantastic fans. If it’s too hot when we first get in the Cloud we open up the hatch and run the fans. Works great for us.

A trip in triple digits will soon show you how a baked potato feels inside Aluminum foil. I would we know that. Our 25 had one Air.

We have a 23d narrow body with a single ac. The stock 13k unit was useless once the temperature passed 95 in the desert.

We upgraded to the 15k dometic unit, which is significantly better but still leaves much to be desired on a hot day.

I couldn’t imagine a larger coach staying cool with a single unit.
