Down the road, if I was going to do it, that's how I planned to do it. We also use our compact with twin beds. I have a small table/night stand that I put brackets on that raise up and out for a small table. It's the kind of brackets that you use on coffee tables that raise up.

I think outside the box.

I am testing my new A/C install this weekend, and it works perfectly!
All the parts came from Home Depot. The A/C is several years old, given to me by a friend for free.I just duct taped the roof jack to the outside of the window screen. Screwed the Roof jack to the Flex duct adapter. Removed the louvers from the A/C unit, trimmed the Duct Box to fit inside the opening, and used the foil Duct Tape to attach it.

This A/C might be a better choice.
It would eliminate the need for the Duct Box and Flex Duct.

The RV guy working on my Trailswest Campster refused to put in any type of AC in the wall because there is nothing there to support the weight of it. I also live in Texas where AC is a MUST. Am happy with my 5,000BTU portable AC. We only cut a hole the size of a dryer vent to vent exhaust to the outside (per specs) and a very small hole in floor for drip line for condensation. (I fasten that up under body of trailer for travel & let in down in campsite.) Literally used a dryer vent type of cover on exterior. It has a flap that closes when not in use. Have had to make homemade pieces to angle airflow into the body of the trailer (or it seemed like all the cool air stayed in the kitchenette) but it works in all but the hottest weather in blazing sun. When it's that hot in Texas, I don't go camping!! I'm not having luck attaching photos, but if you look up my Campster in the Registry you'll see what I mean.

Hey Packdaddy - just realized I'd had a message from y'all way back in March 2014 when I bought my Campster. Congrats on getting your Compact! Where did you find her?

If you exhaust the hot air from the A/C outside then hot air from the outside to replace it negating to some extent the cooler air produced. If you can find out how to get the air to the condenser it will work better.

CATHY, found it in Little Rock, Arkansas. Pretty bare bones, but sound. Having fun adding stuff
