I've read mixed reviews on the portable a/c in campers from great to no effect at all. I suppose it depends on the temps and insulation. You do need to vent those through the window though using something that looks like a dryer vent hose.

An air conditioner in the closet makes sense to me. Draw the air in the side, exhaust out the bottom. You can get away with the cheapest window model this way.

So Lisa,What is going on?

Yours is one of the cleanest old Trill I have seen.

We need to live vicariously through you here!

Why, thanks, Ed! It's good to have that feedback. We took her on a trial run " camping" at our family cottage. My 6 year old son fell out of the top bunk in the middle of the night, and we discovered we need a rail (:/ Found the following thread Bunk Bed Safety

We are taking our first trip to Northern MI next month and are getting a transmission cooler for our van. Also....our Trillium came w/o a battery and we are having one installed. Still figuring out the power/converter. I have to admit neither my husband nor I are very literate in the subject, so it's a learning curve. Have to still check the frame...door is a little wonky...would like a screen door. A few hairline cracks around door...but I think they may be in the gel coat.

Searching a bit on the Fantastic Fan....may be a good alternative to a/c.

Our awning is in great shape, but looking at some add-a-room options

Leaving for California on Sat for a couple of weeks, but I am SO excited about our Trillium that I wish we could just go camping! My husband is rearranging his work schedule to work four days and have Mondays off so we can do more Sa-M camping.

Have I mentioned how much I love this forum?! It and you all have been such a help!

Lisa, The bunk bar on a Trillium is typically mounted to the ridge in front of the door, and to a block of wood glued to the fibreglass, under the Ensolite. Many Trilliums have the block of wood, even if they don't have the bunk bar. Please don't make the mistake of drilling through the fibreglass to mount it.
