    My trailer is 45 sq. ft. and about 110 cu.ft. Looking at doing 115 volt A/C. No window or roof mounts, I have checked Akoma, and Climate Rite. Any ides for a light weight, maybe 1,000 to 2,000 btu unit?

    I think the ClimateRight 2500 is the smallest I've ever seen. Had not heard of Akoma before, but looks like that is 1400btu, so that may be your answer.

      When we were looking for A/C I called climate right . The woman that I spoke to ask for dimensions , if ceiling was insulated , walls insulated & what it was skinned with . I was set on purchasing the 2500 btu unit she assured me that the 2500 unit would be over worked and not cool proper . I believed that the 5000 btu would turn our teardrop into a meat locker , to my surprise it works very well . I did make changes from the normal installions method . We did not want to cut 4" holes into the front of tear . I make plates that fit into the windows of the doors and had to increase the size of the flex duct due to the increased length of duct . This past august the weather was 93 outside & the interior was a cool 68 , yes we did get condensation on the flex duct on the outside but no big deal . Shop around & check prices on the climate right I found a outstanding deal on Ebay Brand new for less than 400.00 shipped

        Just to clarify, I should have posted a picture. We have camped over 120 nights in the Viking. Overall size is 9 X 5. Insulated well. Most likely will go with the Climaterite 2500. Looking at ducting it through the floor. A couple of people in Australia have it that way. The trick is to use a 90° elbow under the trailer. Cold air is ok at the floor, return air through the cabinet and down. Will keep you posted. Keep the comments coming!

          Just have to ask how do you feel that is insulated well isn't that a fabric material like on a pop up ?
