Our 63 GT is not wired for AC, which makes putting one on the roof a very expensive proposition. This is the solution that we came up with for our portable ac unit. The triangle sides continue to the inside and keep the unit from falling out without using any screws or connectors of any kind. That is foam rubber around the top to keep the bugs out. We used it this week and it worked like a charm. Our plan is to paint the wood to match the aluminum.

do you have pics of the inside of how your unit looks? And what size a/c are you using?

I didn't take any pictures from the inside- I will next time we put it in the window. The ac unit is a regular smallish window unit that is flush with the wall inside. The only part that comes into the trailer is the top of the triangle sides. The weight of the ac unit holds it all in place.

Looking at this picture, I think that it is not clear enough how simple this was. There are only three pieces of wood, the bottom and the two sides. The top is filled in with a strip of foam rubber.

I just realized that I never posted these pictures. Wow, 3 years late! In northern Ill, we don't use our ac enough to justify the cost of a roof unit. We are still using this when we need AC, and it works just perfectly, installs in less than a few minutes.

I wondered if anyone has had any more recent (than 2010) experience with the portable air conditioners, particularly the newer dual-hose (intake and discharge) models? I really like what Muddy_Hollow did in post #19, and could see myself going that route.

Thanks.
