Just my 2 cents worth.


I wouldn't buy one either without AC..........

Different strokes for different folks. I wouldn't buy one with A/C.

I'm thinking about a MW1 cooler from that website for next summer's travels, but no experience with it yet. They sure have a pile of good testimonials on their website.

You only want to use a swamp cooler if you camp in a low-humidity areas. Otherwise it not only doesn't cool, but adds more moisture inside the trailer.

Interesting thread... Living in Texas I think I have never been without A/C in my life. It's hard to believe places exist that don't need air conditioning. I'd definitely have to have it, then do my best in the summer to travel to places that use it the least! LOL!

We've been in Florida a month and haven't turned it on once though I probably should exercise it. I really don't expect we'll need it until maybe September in Iowa.

Air conditioning in Canada. We've traveled in every Canadian province from April to September and have never needed our air conditioner. However I am sure there are some really warm days, weeks and months but not when we've been there, generally even the summers seem pleasant though the sun seems to be above the horizon for a long time in some of the more northerly provinces and territories.

Canada, an absolutely great place to travel......

It looks like I'm getting my first fiberglass camper next week- a 1977 13' Trillium. I doesn't have AC - but it will! We had had 64 days over 100 degrees this year. I don't mind camping when it's hot, I just like sleeping at night.

I like not having the extra weight and space taken up by AC, but I have to admit I really wouldn't have complained about having it that weekend I camped in Virginia Beach on a 100-degree weekend. Still, I'm not going to bother.

Maybe my next trailer years from now will have it, assuming the future need for global warming adaptation....

I am 6'4" and have learned that walking around headroom is less important than-lying-in-the-bed headroom. The bed in our 2002 Casita SD 17 is 77x54. Air conditioning is standard equipment on deluxe Casitas, standard model Casitas are extremely rare. The AC is above the bed and I have yet to bump my head on it.
We previously had a '99 Casita 17 with the ac under the closet. I don't think it was as effective as the roof unit.
