Jane,
I used one of these on a hot/humid night when I did not have a/c. worked fine for about 3-4 hours, enough to allow me to fall asleep. All you need is a bag of ice and a cooler--

Hi Jim... I was Looking online and saw one of those ice chest coolers and thought it sounded too good to be true...glad to hear it worked...sounds like it might be the best thing to try. Hey, are you on your way to pick up your new baby?

Two Escape 19's are being delivered here in York, Pa on 19/20 of July, other couple are coming up from Raleigh, NC- I just made reservations at a CG in Gettysburg for that weekend for both Escapes.

But if your roof will support a roof unit, that's probably easier.
Do you know if a 13 foot 74 Boler can support an ac unit?
Have you heard of Bolers with roof ac?
Thanks.

They make small air conditioners with hardware somewhat like that setup.

Check out the 98 Scamp for sale listing. They have a air conditioner like the one I just posted about. It is set up in the bathroom on that one.

That's not portable in my book.

The 5000 BTU window unit I have is 36lbs I think? And I'd bet a fraction of the size of that "portable". I'd put a box around one of those small units instead if you don't have the room for a permanent install.

But the price is good and capacity is great, if you think managing 90 lbs of big ol' AC unit is not a problem.
