How much time will you / do you spend outside? For me this is the most important factor in the debate. I work outdoors and have lived in Texas and New England. Both places I worked outside all day, the heating and cooling costs have been very low because when I come home I don’t want to experience a huge change in temperature. That being said, AC currently is a blessing or should I say addiction...

it has started me thinking about some sort of tiny unit that could cool the bed area with a heavy curtain drawn, sweating all night is no fun.

The "Tiny Unit" is sorta the holy grail of RV ac units. Let us know if you find one.
BTW: AC units and power hook ups are usually mandatory pairings. Sorta like white wine & fish. lololol

Old school AC "tiny unit" = small fan blowing past a block of ice!
(12V fan will do, drip pan strongly recommended!)

You can make a swamp cooler for under $50 that uses evaporative cooling. I made one that can blow into a "bed tent" that is only about thirty cubic feet for desert camping. All it needs is 12 volts to run a tiny circulation pump and air blower. Don't even think about trying one unless you are in the desert and the humidity is less than 30% or so.
