We took Moosetags advice to get one A/C and the three-sided awning option when purchasing our custom ordered 2017 25' Airstream. I guess those of us from Florida like the heat. We typically dry camp, always use the two fantastic fans, and rarely use the A/C. We typically leave Florida from May to September to escape the summer heat and humidity, but have never been uncomfortable with our single A/C even at very high temperatures and humidity levels. We would definitely only get one A/C on a 25' if we had to replace our Airstream. Also 50A service is not useful to us dry campers as our generator only has a 30A plug. When dry camping in hot temperatures, especially when traveling for the day, we occasionally run our generator and A/C for an hour or two before going to bed so we can sleep comfortably. We actually run our furnace all night long most of the year. Remember, we are from Florida and don't like being cold.

I can power it with an extension cord to the 20 amp outlet on the post... and pull it and store it when I travel to temperate areas.


Those roll around units are noisy. I have an LG 9000 for my workbench. Iíll sell it for $150 if you get to Pensacola.
